* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egrGpVbGpbA Pop-Tarts]] "Crazy Good!" commercials feature sentient anthropomorphized versions of the breakfast pastries who are befriended by stick-figure people and animals, who inevitably betray them and eat them. The Pop-Tarts are visibly distressed when they realize what's going on. In one particularly disturbing example, a jar of peanut butter and a jar of jelly have just given birth to a smiling baby PB&J Pop-Tart, only for the nurse in the maternity ward to announce, "Feeding time!" and tie a napkin under her chin. The peanut butter jar screams a BigNo-- and we cut to the jingle! [[EatsBabies Eat Pop-Tarts]]!

Red makes a hasty escape, while the commercial ends with the camera closing on Yellow with a horrified look on his face.
* In a fairly disturbing Chips Ahoy commercial, a giant talking cookie is invited to a little girl's birthday party (and even has a party hat on). "[[IWasToldThereWouldBeCake So… where's the cake?]]" "Oh… [[TheCakeIsALie we're not having cake]]." Cookie's smile dissolves into a grimace of horror. "Oh."
** Another Chips Ahoy commercial features four anthropomorphic cookies joyriding in a car and singing along to Human League's "Don't You Want Me" as a giant hand reaches in and grabs them one by one. The last finally realizes the others are no longer singing, and falters as he looks behind him, just before being grabbed himself.
** Then there's the ad where a talking cookie is grabbed by a giant hand and pulled offscreen after he had been apparently seducing a ''human''.

* One ad for Maple Leaf chicken involved a pair of actual chickens being shown a contract to become Maple Leaf Prime Chickens, and being told all the perks. Vegetable grain, open range, it all sounds quite reasonable. As they reached the bottom of the contract, their faces registered alarm, as if they had only just realized the fate of Maple Leaf Prime Chickens.
* An advert for mushy peas featuring Craig Charles reminding a normal pea of life back on the farm, with all its little pea friends in its little pea pod. The peas breaks down crying, turning itself mushy.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=egrGpVbGpbA Pop-Tarts]] "Crazy Good!" commercials feature sentient anthropomorphized versions of the breakfast pastries who are befriended by stick-figure people and animals, who inevitably betray them and eat them. The Pop-Tarts are visibly distressed when they realize what's going on. In one particularly disturbing example, a jar of peanut butter and a jar of jelly have just given birth to a smiling baby PB&J Pop-Tart, only for the nurse in the maternity ward to announce, "Feeding time!" and tie a napkin under her chin. The peanut butter jar screams a BigNo-- and we cut to the jingle! [[EatsBabies Eat Pop-Tarts]]!

* There's a similarly themed Creator/LarryNiven "Draco's Tavern" short story, "Assimilating Our Culture, That's What They're Doing!" In it, a space explorer is made rich by the licensing agreement he signed that allows an alien race to clone him in mass quantities ''for his meat''. The deal was done in part because if the humans (there was a whole embassy involved) didn't agree to it, then there would be "pirated" versions of their clones on the alien dinner tables ''anyway''. Needless to say, the United Nations never sent another embassy there. As for the guy who agreed to be cloned, his FridgeLogic moment happened on the trip home…

--> “There was an incident,” he said. “A series of incidents, I guess. A dead guy, another dead guy. Some drugs. It’s kind of a long story. Now we can see things. Sometimes. I have a dead cat that follows me around, wondering why I never feed it. Oh, and I had one hamburger that started mooing when I ate it.” He glanced at me. “You remember that?”

* In ''The Barsoom Project'', this trope's bizarre implications are confronted head-on.

Luckily, one of the guests is a [[spoiler:stand-up comedian]] by profession, and successfully argues that [[spoiler: modern popular culture ''always'' makes jokes about anyone or anything that's sufficiently important and respected]].
