* 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."

* David [=LaChapelle=] likes using this trope. When an ad for UsefulNotes/McDonalds includes naked breasts and Ronald [=McDonald=] lying on the floor in his undies, you've got to wonder what the man was smoking. The golden arches are supposed to represent breasts and thus make us hungry. That it resembles the first letter in "mother" is less coincidental than the fact that it resembles the first letter in the corporation's name. FreudWasRight, after all.

** 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.
