* 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.

* [[ImageBoard /tg/]] created [[http://suptg.thisisnotatrueending.com/archive.html?tags=Crazy%20Hassan Crazy Hassan,]] an insane camel proprietor who pops up in improbable locations to sell players slightly-used camels. And they will be the best slightly-used camels you have ever seen or used.

* The TV in ''TheBraveLittleToaster'' imitates this spiel to get Rob to go down to the junkyard to find his old appliances, turning "Ernie's Disposal" into "Crazy Ernie's Amazing Emporium of TOTAL BARGAIN MADNESS!"

** Received a dubious ShoutOut in ''BartonFink'', where John Goodman's salesman character Charlie Meadows turns out to be psychopathic serial killer Karl "Madman" Mundt.

** There's also the bike salesman who will eat a bucket of scorpions if you're not satisfied with the trade-in on your old bike. Guess what ends up happening after Buster gets even with him for ripping him off...

* On ''Series/KenanAndKel'', there's Crazy Betty's Electronics. Unfortunately, Betty wasn't crazy enough not to charge Kenan for video camera Kel broke.

* Also spoofed on ''SheepInTheBigCity'', with an advertisement of a proprietor who may have been genuinely insane: selling an elephant for five cents, but a peanut for "a million, billion dollars!"

* Played straight in ''InspectorGadget's Last Case'', with "Crazy Eddie's Used Car Lot". Here, Crazy Eddie is a used-car salesman who dresses like a superhero in commercials; the gag here is that he sold long-since decommissioned cars that once belonged to ''superheroes''; at one point he gets the ''Gadgetmobile itself'' in his lot. [[spoiler:It's promptly bought up by Dr. Claw himself, masquerading as "Devon Debonair" in his effort to destroy [[strike:Inspector]] Lieutenant Gadget once and for all.]]

* An episode of ''TinyToonAdventures'' centering around the prom has "Crazy Tazzy's House of Tuxes", where the already-established-as-several-kinds-of-insane Taz applied these tactics to selling formal wear, of all things. The commercial featured Taz grunting, spitting, and spinning his way through cutting prices on tuxedos as Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck chased him in white coats with butterfly nets.
