** ''TheBradyBunch'': The 1973 episode "The Cincinnati Kids" was a 30-minute plug.
** ''ThePartridgeFamily'': An episode that aired earlier in 1973 � "I Left My Heart in Cincinatti" � was ''also'' a 30-minute plug.
** A few episodes of ''LetsMakeADeal'' (both ABC daytime and syndication) offered a trip to the otherwise mundane destination of Cincinnati so the winning contestant could visit King's Island. (Coincidentally, daily passes for the duration of the week-long trip, along with vouchers for the concessions stands were thrown in.)

*** Even [[Series/TheMuppetShow the Muppets]] went to Walt Disney World. StatlerAndWaldorf, true to form, still complained... about the place having nothing to complain about.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/{{Sealab 2021}}'' parodied the trope with numerous, gratuitous, increasingly jarring plugs for "Grizzlebee's", a fictional amalgam of casual family restaurants such as Chili's and TGI Friday's. "Try Grizzlebee's new onion wings with maple-honey ranchapeño sauce!"

* Because the network in ''Film/TheTrumanShow'' is devoted to showing Truman's entire waking life, ProductPlacement is done by his family and friends (i.e. the supporting cast) delivering {{Enforced Plug}}s in his presence. An inappropriate and out of place plug is eventually one of the things that cues him in to the [[TrumanShowPlot fakeness]] of his situation.

* In an episode of ''Series/{{Frasier}}'', a caller to Doctor Frasier Crane's radio shrink show, identifying herself as "Pam", complains about her parents-in-law, who live just across the street. They are unable to respect the boundaries, keep inviting themselves over, criticise her cooking and housekeeping, interfere in ''everything'', hijack the childcare, her husband is no help as he's dominated by his mother, and, oh God, they're coming across the street ''right now''. Pam drops to all fours, hides on the floor, begs for silence, pretends they're not in - but wails that they'll let themselves in and check ''anyway'' - and kills the call. Had the caller identified herself as [[EverybodyLovesRaymond Debra]], it might have given the game away...[[note]] ELR and ''Frasier'' are both handled by CBS Television Distribution, and there are other overlaps between production companies with an interest. Unravelling all this is eye-watering, though.[[/note]]
** This scenario was, in fact, the opening credit sequence to several seasons of Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond...

* Parodied in ''Film/TalladegaNightsTheBalladOfRickyBobby'', where NBC is covering the climactic race, and cuts to commercial in the middle of Ricky Bobby's and Jean Girard's cars crashing, followed by an actual Applebee's commercial appearing in the middle of the movie--but that's not even the punchline. The punchline is that when the race coverage returns after the commercial, ''the crash is still happening''. It also parodies a longstanding notion that '''NBC''' meant Nothing But Commercials.

* The most famous [[AvertedTrope aversion]] in the business is Wrestling/CMPunk. He just legitimately loves Pepsi, and got the (then-current) logo as a tattoo wall all of his non-StraightEdge buddies were getting beer company logos. Typically used as little jokes (if you're looking for him backstage, "try the Pepsi machine"), and God help you if you [[MinorInsultMeltdown spill his diet Pepsi]].
