* Website/CollegeHumor has done this, most blatantly with Trojan condoms. One short (an animated Valentine’s Day one starring Cupid) was so {{egregious}}ly rife with the ProductPlacement for Trojan that nearly all the comments on the video were complaints about it.

* ''Series/StargateSG1'' had an episode where the team was part of a race [[RecycledInSpace In Space]], which was intercut with shots of two commentators, who at the end of each scene would awkwardly segue into an advertisement for an in-universe product.

** ''Radio/FibberMcGeeAndMolly'' tended to {{lampshade|d}} the trope to pieces. Midway through each episode, the [=McGees=] would encounter announcer Harlow Wilcox, who would quickly shift discussion of any topic to extolling the virtues of Johnson’s Self-Polishing Glo-Coat floorwax. Fibber or Molly would usually groan and go “HereWeGoAgain”.

* This is becoming an endemic on Website/{{Youtube}}, with many Youtubers blatantly Shilling commercial products and websites. One of stated reasons is that sponsorships are paying the bills when ad revenue stop making as much money (due to, say, Youtube changing how video monetization works). When making videos is your career you have to pay bills somehow.

* ''After a Few Words'', by Creator/RandallGarrett. Two crusaders break off from fighting the Saracens to smoke an anachronistic packet of ''Old Kings'' cigarettes. Turns out they're in a virtual reality simulation that the cigarette company is sponsoring. Though the advertising man complains that the cigarette tastes better in the simulation than ''Old Kings'' do in real life.

* ''Series/HomeImprovement'': The ShowWithinAShow ''Tool Time'' is sponsored by the in-universe company Binford Tools. Tim will stand behind Binford's products, and has no problem promoting them on theshow. However, in one episode, Tim is told to plug a new product that he thinks is terrible, and is torn between his honesty and his obligations. He eventually trashes the tool on-air and even puts his boss on the spot by roping him into it. However, a positive spin is still put on it, by saying that Binford prides itself on making only the highest quality tools, and that when a tool doesn't pass the test, it doesn't go to market. They then proceed to destroy the prototype.

* ''Series/HomeImprovement'': Justified example, since the series features a ShowWithinAShow, ''Tool Time'', sponsored by Binford Tools. In-universe, Tim will stand behind Binford's products, and has no problem promoting them on his Binford Tools sponsored show. However, in one episode, Tim is told to plug a new product that he thinks is terrible, and is torn between his honesty and his obligations. He eventually trashes the tool on-air and even puts his boss on the spot by roping him into it. However, a positive spin is still put on it, by saying that Binford prides itself on making only the highest quality tools, and that when a tool doesn't pass the test, it doesn't go to market.

** To somewhat of a lesser extent, in one second-season ep Tim wore a sweatshirt with the logo of ABC's Detroit station WXYZ-TV 7 on it; ABC owned the station until 1986 (having to sell it off due to FCC regulations during the merger with Capital Cities), it's currently owned by Scripps.
