* Often used by restaurants as a particularly canny form of marketing: they'll make sure the kitchen vents onto the nearby street so that people walking by on their way somewhere else will just happen to catch a whiff of that freshly cooking food...

* During the Spider-Verse story line in Marvel comics, a family of vampire-like predators called the Inheritors hunt various iterations of Spider-Man across alternate realities. These realities mirror a number of ways Spider-Man has appeared across different eras and medium (comics, three-panel newspaper strips, TV, etc.). The reality based on the Hostess Fruit Pie ads has one of the Inheritors momentarily distracted by the delicious fruit filling, but he is powerful enough to overcome its (otherwise irresistible in that reality) siren song of sweetness.

* A darker version of this happens on ''WesternAnimation/TheGoodeFamily'' with Che, the family dog, hyper-focusing on any meat product in his line of sight and running off to hunt smaller animals on a dime. The DudeNotFunny part comes in when you remember that his owners are straw liberals (on top of being generally morons) who only feed him vegan food, and he's trying desperately to nourish himself since his owners refuse to do so.[[note]]Dogs can handle a bit of veg and grain every now and then, but most of their food should be meat-based, or they will suffer serious malnutrition. Cats can't even handle veggies as a plus; they puke up any plant matter they eat and a vegan diet will just straight-up kill them.[[/note]]
