* When Body Switching Movies Collide is a skit done by the Website/{{Cracked}} staff. It starts off when [[Series/QuantumLeap Sam Beckett]] Leaped into [[Film/FreakyFriday Ellen Cunningham]]'s mind after she switched bodies with Anna. [[Film/{{Ghost}} Sam Cunningham]], Ellen's dead husband, shows up, explaining how he will possess Sam and have sex with Ellen one last time. Al argues that Sam Cunningham possessing Sam Beckett to have sex with Ellen would result in Anna's body having sex with Helen, who has Anna's mind at the moment. The Ghost Sam leaves in disgust, saying he plans to have sex with someone else. Al reveals that Anna is a [[Film/SpyKids secret agent]] hired for the [[Series/StargateSG1 Stargate project]] in the [[{{Series/Torchwood}} Torchwood Institute]] in Roswell. [[Franchise/TheMatrix Trinity]], who works for the [[Series/{{Millennium}} Millenium Group]], shows up in a [[Series/{{Sliders}} Slider Hole]] and explains that the world is a false reality created by sophisticated computers contained within the mind of [[Film/BeingJohnMalkovich John Horatio Malkovich]]. When Sam Beckett asks Al to Leap him out of this madness, Al can't because he's actually a [[Series/BattlestarGalactica1978 Cylon]]. It turns out it was all Michael Swaim's dream, and the camera zooms out to reveal that sequence was [[Series/StElsewhere imagined by Michael looking at his snowglobe]].

* ''WebAnimation/DrHavocsDiary'': Episode 24, appropriately called "Freaky Friday". All thanks to one of Havoc's machines, this happens between Ally and Havoc, and then various other characters as well. Oh, and VoicesAreMental is averted.

** Used yet again "1 2 Switch Bodies!", wherein [[LightningCanDoAnything a lightning bolt strikes Junior and Jeffy]] while they are playing ''1-2 Switch'' on the UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch, [[{{Pun}} switching]] their bodies as a result. Near the end of the video, [[spoiler:the exact same thing happens to Chef Pee Pee and Cody]].

* In the LoadingReadyRun video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGSNu1kNU_U "Brain Transplants Made Easy"]], Paul does this to everyone just to prove a point. This is taken to the hilarious extremes of [[spoiler:Jer]] getting switched with [[spoiler:Dana (a random stranger)]] and [[spoiler:Bill]] getting switched with [[spoiler:Gib (a puppet).]]

* A T-Mobile advert from 2003 shows a woman getting a video message from her husband. The video shows her young daughter activating her science project; a brain switcher, which swaps her older brother's body with the family dog. The dog speaks with the son's voice while the boy lifts his leg to scratch behind his ear. Cue mom {{Fainting}}. A very brief scene after this shows the dad playing fetch with the dog in the boy's body.

* In a scrapped scene in ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'', Lightning is given a choice of participating in a race or doing community service. When he picks
the Third''.community service, he wakes up the next day and finds that his engine (apparently the car equivalent of a brain) has been swapped with a steamroller, much to his horror. Fortunately, this is AllJustADream, but when he wakes up he fearfully changes his mind and decides to do the race instead.

* Used in, of all things, the ''WebVideo/SuperMarioLogan'' episode "Switching Bodies!". Chef Pee Pee and Bowser Junior both go to bed wishing what it's like to be each other, and then wake up the next morning with their bodies switched. HilarityEnsues, surprisingly. This is soon exploited when Chef Pee Pee-as-Junior tells Junior's friends to take his toys, and Junior-as-Chef Pee Pee angrily gets back at him by telling Bowser to start beating, strangling, insulting and paying him, knowing that Chef Pee Pee will get blamed for saying that.

* Triggering this trope is just one of many ways to get [[YouAreGrounded grounded]] in Website/GoAnimate "Grounded" videos. For one example, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkOvcndsTUU this video]] involves WesternAnimation/{{Caillou}} switching bodies with his mother in an attempt to avoid getting grounded. Unfortunately for Caillou, the switch lasts for all of about 20 seconds before he and his mom switch back, after which [[DiggingYourselfDeeper he is given additional grounding time]] for the swap. VoicesAreMental tends to be in effect whenever this occurs.
