* In ''Cake Mania 2'' the message you get after completing the August level of the Grand Battle stage says that satisfied Japanese customers are thinking of making a commercial for the main character's bakery: "Something to do with cute hamsters, a talking mushroom and go-go dancers playing poker with fish."

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/CodenameKidsNextDoor'' in the episode where the sectors are showing off their latest advancements in two-by-four technology. Many groups put together small video presentations about their inventions. The French KND shows off their invention with a black and white video about absolutely nothing coherent. The operatives evaluating the inventions and demonstrations calls off the ad part of the way through and just asks outright what it's supposed to be advertising. Their response is essentially that TrueArtIsIncomprehensible.

* The [[UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn Saturn]] didn't fare much better, with the ads being very prone to not making much sense nor actually advertising the Saturn. While Sega eventually managed to stop making such commercials come the "Hard Stuff" campaign, ''the'' prime example of this can be seen in the promotional video Sega produced to market the Saturn at launch. While the video admittedly talks about the Saturn's features for most of the 9 minutes (yes, it's that long), that's to say nothing of what actually ''happens during the dialogue.'' Absolutely nothing makes sense, nor does it have anything remotely to do with the Sega Saturn, and it's one of the few of these ads that has to be seen to be believed. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XjK0P_Qz0SA Words simply can't do it justice.]]

* A European ad for the first UsefulNotes/PlayStation depicts a family at a dinner table, having a conversation. Except, they're speaking with video game sound effects. One of them only makes sounds from ''Franchise/CrashBandicoot'', another only makes war sounds, etc. It then [[GrossUpCloseUp zooms into their mouths]] [[NauseaFuel to reveal that their uvulas are in the shapes of the [=PlayStation=] buttons]]!
* Another [=PlayStation=] example: The American ad for ''VideoGame/UmJammerLammy'' depicted a car jumping a ramp and crashing into a pool at high speed, while listening to the Stage 4 music.

* Early UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 adverts were aiming to drive home the idea that the console will offer you ''all kinds'' of experiences. But perhaps the makers of those ads [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zjySDiV6HbE overdid it...]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t10rdc_NIz4 slightly.]]

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XqDb_5hs0v8 This ad]] begins with a nurse at a hospital checking up on the newborn babies in the nursery, [[StrayingBaby only to find one empty]]. Cue an eclectic chase after the baby...who is a giant hamster. Comedic havoc ensues throughout the hospital as doctors, nurses, and police attempt to catch this infant hamster until the baby parachutes off the top of a building with a baby blanket. He lands with a family of giant hamsters in the advertised product: the Kia Turbo Soul. Until then, there was nothing to indicate that it was a commercial for the then brand new vehicle beyond the baby hamster's name actually ''being'' Turbo.

* ''TheSimpsons'': "Mr. Plow" hires a fancy ad firm and they give him a weird Calvin Klein Obsession knock off complete with a ''Film/CitizenKane'' ShoutOut, as well as the source of the quote above. "What the hell was that?!"
** Further, the "Mr. Sparkle" ad for a Japanese dish soap begins fairly normally, but quickly descends into madness, with go-go dancing girls who change into sumo dancers when the mascot breathes on them, and a reporter interviewing a two-headed cow which then disintegrates.
