Characters in commercials are obsessed about the product, and think about nothing else but the product. Their work and family are nothing but mere window dressing for their obsession with Product X. An entire series of a certain company's commercials never show these people doing anything normal. In office situations, you begin to wonder what sort of work gets done in these offices, and how they can have the time when they're talking about bowel irregularity and male enhancement all day. Teenagers take their girlfriends on a date to a greasy spoon like [=McDonalds=] and none of them ever complain. Epic family quarrels arise from discarding unused cell phone minutes.

** And now Gevalia has a new mascot:a handsome man who apparently comes out of nowhere to replace worn-out ladies' "cup of Joe" with "a cup of Johan," and give them a moment to enjoy the luxury of the coffee.

* Wendy's has a red-headed lady into their advertisements who seems to think about nothing ''but'' the fast-food restaurant ([[FridgeLogic and yet somehow maintains a trim figure]].) It's gotten so bad she can't get through deciding which movie to watch with her friends without deciding to go to Wendy's instead.

** The commercial hook itself is parodied in a later ad which depicts a man as being ecstatic that his new job pays him in Trident Layers, but his family doesn't share his psychosis and is worried about how they're going to pay the bills.

* An Applejacks commercial has a bunch of kids take a photo of themselves when they're eating breakfast. On the bottom of the picture, they write "Applejacks '94." Apparently, these kids are defined by their reakfast cereal.

* Decades ago, Swedish coffee brand Gevalia used to have commercials with the Gevalia family. The plot would be like this one: Before the father leaves for work, he is told not to forget to buy coffee. The mom thinks that she'd better buy some while she's out, since the father probably will forget. Everybody else in the family thinks so as well, and once they get home they realize that not only did everybody buy coffee just to be sure -- the dad actually remembered to buy coffee! What a laugh!
