* The commercial the title characters put out in ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}}''. It has no music, the characters are wooden and it looks like it was shot for about 5 bucks. In ''Film/GhostBustersII'', after their comeback the Busters rope Janine and Louis into doing a commercial, with BadBadActing and cheap special effects.

* In ''WesternAnimation/MonstersInc'', the commercial near the beginning about the titular company. Not as bad as most examples, but has some chuckle-worthy, slightly sheepish acting from Sulley.

to:

* An episode o ''Series/SmartGuy'' focused on the Hendersons making one for Floyd's roofing business, starring Floyd as a superhero called "Roofer-Man". When the commercial winds up being aired in a 3am timeslot due to a station executive's misleading contract[[note]]The exec promised TJ that it would be aired between 8 and 10. He didn't mention until the contract was finalized that he'd meant [[ExactWords 8pm to 10am]][[/note]], TJ breaks into the studio and sets the the computer to play it during "Sunday prime" instead. Unfortunately, this results in the cheap, SoBadItsGood commercial being played during the ''Superbowl'', where it quickly achieves in-universe [[MemeticMutation memetic status]] while costing the station millions in ad-revenue.

* ''VideoGame/GhostbustersTheVideoGame'' opens with one in the style of the ones in the movies. The Wii version is even more kitschy than the "realistic" versions of the game.
