* In Madison, Wisconsin, there are the Mad City Mitsubishi Mad Men. Highlights include turkey costumes around Thanksgiving and disembodied floating heads wearing sailor hats for Memorial Day, and the 'Nickel Pickle Sale', which naturally involves gherkin outfits and cardboard cutouts. [[NoIndoorVoice And they never, ever, stop shouting.]] They also advertise on practically every TV station and most radio stations in the area. There is no escape.

* In central Wisconsin, there's Scott from 199ride.com. He's a used car salesman with NoIndoorVoice who's whole gimmick is a series of annoying commercials that advertise how much he either needs to move his inventory or replace it with new vehicles, claiming to buy any vehicle regardless of working condition, type, make, model, or year, will pay off any payments you still owe on your current vehicle, and will guarantee up to $3500 in cash off of whatever vehicle you exchange for it (the kicker being that the vehicle is listed $3500 more than normal price anyway). He's Scott from '''ONE NINETY-NINE RIDE DOT COM!''' '''''THAT'S ONE NINETY-NINE RIIIIIIIIDE DOT COM!!!'''''

* Parodied in a Creator/SvenHassel novel when Porta relates how a Berlin butcher, finding himself with too many sausages, tried to give away free samples, only for the police to haul him off to the loony bin and confiscate the sausages in the belief that he was a madman trying to depopulate Berlin with poisoned food. No Berlin butcher just ''gives'' anything away.

* Parodied in, of all things, the ''JAWS'' Ride at Ride/UniversalStudios Orlando. Like most of the rides there, the waiting line has TV hanging from the ceiling showing fake commercials and programs related to the theme of the ride -- in Jaws's case, stuff about Amity. One of the commercials features a Crazy Eddie, who LITERALLY WRECKED THE ELECTRONICS he was peddling ON-CAMERA so he could give you the "discounted" prices. Complete with a miserable complaining accountant.
* The line for Space Mountain at [[Ride/DisneyThemeParks Disneyland]] used to have [=TVs=] with a similar programming loop, including an Insane Proprietor selling used spaceships. Sadly, it was eliminated when Space Mountain got remodeled.
