* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kCqaElFZUIw This "PSA"]], which was posted on Earth Day, 2016, features ESD (Earth Space Defense) Director [[Characters/IndependenceDay David]] [[Creator/JeffGoldblum Levinson]] giving "some handy tips on how we can all help save the Earth." It quickly becomes clear that this is an ad for the (then upcoming) ''Film/IndependenceDayResurgence''.

* T-Mobile's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eI8YZdejPKg 2016 Super Bowl Ad]] appears to be an ad for Verizon, a continuation of its "rolling red balls" ad from January 2016, until SteveHarvey comes out and (in reference to his Miss Universe error in December 2015) says "I need to apologize, those are last year's numbers!" Of course it is actually an ad for T-Mobile.

* One Smokey Bear PSA begins with a frightened man being chaotically brought into a police station, where he has his fingerprints taken, has his items confiscated, and thrown into a jail cell, despite him pleading that what he did was an accident. Then we find out the man's crime: starting a forest fire.
-->''"If you're guilty of starting a forest fire, even accidentally, you'll pay for it."''

* Sprite frequently pulled this trick during their "Obey Your Thirst" ad campaign, usually by starting out as ads for non-existent, drinks, such as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lfOgYIOho44 Jooky]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOuc3nDFweY Sun Fizz]]." Those ads are often discontinued only to become replaced with "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9T0fh1_-UD4 LeBron James]]" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQBskPol5hA Miles Thirst Doing Kung Fu]]."

* AMC Theatres had a series of [=PSA=]s that start out as a trailer for a movie, such as a romance film and a {{Disney}}-esque animated movie. All of a sudden it gets interrupted by a cell phone ringer, and the characters complain about the noise. In the latter type of this PSA, the main character of the "movie" gets distracted while flying and accidentally falls into a volcano.

* There is a Lifelock internet ad on ThisVeryWiki that begins as a banner ad for the comedy movie ''Identity Thief'' (which, interestingly, is a real movie). It then switches to an ad that says "Identity theft in movies: Funny! (In theaters Feburary 8.) Identify theft in real life: not so much."

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GwVZwbbhgM "My Little Puppy"]]. It ''seems'' like an [[TastesLikeDiabetes aggressively saccharine]] toy commercial (albeit one for a real dog), but soon reveals itself to be a PSA against treating pets like toys (which includes neglecting it and [[spoiler:[[TearJerker "throwing them out", so to speak]]]]).
