* 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.

* Creator/BillBurr has a tendency to nitpick and poke fun at his sponsors on the ''Monday Morning Podcast''. The sponsors apparently don't object to this, perhaps understanding what they were in for when they sent an ad copy to Burr. His plug for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rl5JDzvkEA0 Shari's Berries]] (and the hilarious FreudianSlip near the end of it) is one of the most well-known bits from his podcast.

They [[WriterRevolt didnít take too kindly to that]] that]], and had immediately followed it up with "Springtime for David", an episode where one of the characters gets a character being brainwashed while working job at a local theme park who brainwashes him into its army of [[GettingSmiliesPaintedOnYourSoul perpetually happy park mascots]].
