* DavidLynch directed a couple of commercials. They are [[TheWalrusWasPaul just as]] [[MindScrew bizarre]] as you might expect from the man.

** Also in TheNineties (or at least the earlier years), they riffed on the inscrutable Calvin Klein perfume ads at least once. The most memorable of the skits featured the late, much-missed Phil Hartman.



* {{Perfume commercial}}s have made this practically a cliche. It probably kicked off with a string of commercials in the late Eighties and early Nineties for the perfume Obsession. This was even lampshaded in ''Series/TheGoldenGirls.'' Then it went full circle; a savvy viewer can ''always'' tell a perfume commercial because ''it has nothing to do with perfume'', or anything else, for that matter.

Compare GainaxEnding, WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs, WhatWereTheySellingAgain. Contrast ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin, or at least the [[TropeNamer trope-naming]] Ronseal adverts. PerfumeAd is a subtrope.

* On ''Series/HappyEndings'', Dave made a commercial for his steak sandwich truck. When he shows it to his friends, they point out a couple of flaws, namely that he didn't say the name of his business, or even mention steak sandwiches.

** Sprite had a series of ads called "sublymonal messages" which was just bizarre, randomly skipping images focusing on odd uses of lemons and limes (or at least green and yellow things).

* 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 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=-UUoZQFrAG4 This old ad]] for the [[GameBoy Game Boy Pocket]]. It was nothing short of this and had little to do with the actual product. It was shown a few times, but never actually played with or anything. Instead, for a good 30 seconds, we are treated to miniature people doing weird stunts and stuff in or on ordinary household items, including a bunch of hipsters [[MindScrew swimming in a jar of alcohol swabs]]. Not until the end do we actually hear the name of the product as "NEW GAME BOY POCKET". The mixed song in the background also includes samples from [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment the very ad itself]].
