* UK advertising for Halls cough sweets. Regular "vapour action" manthol sweets are like your head turning into an air conditioner, or sticking your head out of an aeroplane. Soothers, on the other hand, are like having your sore throat kissed better by a member of the opposite sex.

* In 2000, an ad ran during half time at the Super Bowl, showing a full minute of cowboys herding cats. At the very end we got a slogan: "In a sense, this is what we do." Many people remember the ad but you'd be hard pressed to find anyone who can tell you what was being advertised. [[spoiler:We can, though. It was for EDS, an IT services company that until then was better known for being the source of Ross Perot's fortune -- [[ViewersAreGeniuses if you were familiar with it at all.]] EDS was bought out by Hewlett-Packard in 2008.]]

* Non-commercial example: ''TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' describes the experience of drinking a Pan-Galactic GargleBlaster as being "akin to having one's brain smashed out by a slice of lemon wrapped around a large gold brick." Although this one may or may not be metaphorical.
