* An ad for Pied Piper on ''Series/SiliconValley'' starts extolling the virtues of tables for thirty minutes, then says that tables are like Pied Piper, then starts showing random objects.

* Arguably downplayed in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thaE-4nlxzM this]] 2015 commercial for Longines Watches, in that it makes sense...[[BaitAndSwitchComment but only if you read the description on ]]YouTube. In the commercial, a slowly increasing group of children are chasing a seemingly magic tennis ball. They eventually stop when a man picks up the ball, hands it to the first kid, then leads them to tennis courts, with the slogan "Longines, official time keeper of the French Open" said by a boy with a french accent as a picture of a watch appears. If an advertisement needs to be explained by a YouTube description which comes off like the dream interpretations in the Literature/BookOfDaniel, you're doing something wrong.

* ''TheSimpsons'':
** In "Mr. Plow", Homer hires a fancy ad firm for his plowing business, and they give him a weird Calvin Klein Obsession knock off complete with a ''Film/CitizenKane'' ShoutOut.
** "In Marge We Trust" has the "Mr. Sparkle" ad for a Japanese dish soap which begins fairly normally, but quickly descends into madness, with underwater go-go dancing girls who change into dancing sumo wrestlers when the mascot breathes on them, and a reporter interviewing a two-headed cow which then disintegrates.

* 2008 USA Presidential candidate Mike Gravel ran ads like this; one had him [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0rZdAB4V_j8 standing by a lake before tossing a rock in and walking off]], another had him lighting a [[https://youtu.be/lRwizmuCnOw campfire]]. No one could figure it out, [[ShrugOfGod not even Gravel himself]]. It sure was freaking creepy, though; [[Series/TheDailyShow Jon Stewart]] remarked that [[Literature/TheRing seven days after you view the ad, you will die]].

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UkX3RhK4udk Las Vegas CityCenter]] is trying to give the city a reputation for TrueArt, so the advertisement shows almost nothing but a couple dramatic shots of the product in between lots of footage of people having great fun doing things nowhere near Las Vegas (riding the waves in a yacht?).

It's supposedly a 9-minute promotional animated short for the [=PlayStation=] 2 (even commissioned by Sony), but it's nothing short of grade-A MindScrew. Some of the ending is not safe for work, but that will be the least of your problems if you decide to see this. It should be clear less than halfway in why Sony disowned it.

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.
