* Back in the late 2000s in Florida, there was a PSA that showed footage from what appeared to be a ''VideoGame/{{Halo}}''-esque video game, until after "LEVEL COMPLETE" appeared onscreen, when the character lit up a cigarette (first-person, of course), coughed, and collapsed.
-->'''Voiceover''': Each year, smoking kills over 400,000 people.\\
''(the screen appears to turn off, then the Tobacco Free Florida logo appears onscreen)''\\
'''Voiceover''': Don't be your own worst enemy. Don't smoke.

* An [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XltvwqBZIPc ad put of by the Australian Bureau of Tourism]] for the 2018 Super Bowl appears to be a trailer for a remake of ''Film/CrocodileDundee'' until Chris Hemsworth is told he is actually in an ad for tourism and not a film trailer.

** A spoof of the TwoChicksInAKitchen trope has a housewife struggling to get her kitchen clean, when another woman comes in with a new floor varnish which she sprinkles all over the place, then taunts the housewife about the mess she's made. So the housewife produces a submachine gun and shoots her.

The kicker is that the actual Snuggie commercial played around the same time.
