* ''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.

* ''WesternAnimation/DextersLaboratory'' had a commercial for Puppet Pals Jeans featuring DeliberatelyMonochrome models and an eerie lack of music. Also, the Puppet Pals themselves did not show up until the last 15 seconds, though earlier scenes had abstract references to them. At the end, TomKenny tries to prevent the viewers from thinking, "WhatWereTheySellingAgain?" by informing them (with a French accent), "You know it's ''Puppet Pals'' because of the name on the label."

* The infamous 2012 commercial attempting to introduce [[https://youtu.be/mGs4CjeJiJQ Chanel No. 5]] to men, consisting of black and white footage of BradPitt standing against faded wall paper giving FauxlosophicalNarration.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UUoZQFrAG4 This old ad]] for the [[GameBoy Game Boy Pocket]] has little to do with the actual product. 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]].

* A ''{{Frontline}}'' examination of advertising today states that all this got started by an Acura commercial, which was a shot of a thunderstorm in the distant Savannah.

--->'''Black:''' Some of the commercials are spectacular. They're extraordinary - they're like mystery stories. You don't even know what they're selling until the very end. Three rabbits are on a log, and one of them goes home and hangs himself. [[spoiler:Buy a bike.]]

* Creator/KathleenMadigan also poked fun at these ads in her 2010 special ''Gone Madigan'', using a commercial she'd seen for tech company [[https://www.accenture.com/ Accenture]], featuring a woman in a field of wheat simply saying the words "Yesterday. Dreams. Innovation. We're with you. ''Accenture''."
-->'''Kathleen:''' What the hell was that? They sold ''nothing''. I turned to my sister and said, "I think there's aliens living among us, and this is how they communicate right in front of our faces."
