** 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!

* 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.

hottip cleanup / removal
* helpwanted.com's[[hottip:*:There's a whole group of these sites owned by the same company; KansasCityHelpWanted, BakersfieldHelpWanted, etc.]] radio commercials feature a "boss" who tells his secretary, "Mrs. Norbit", to get new employees for the company. While he apparently eats (he puts four donut balls in his mouth), the only thing he discusses with Mrs. Norbit is hiring new employees. Considering how long the commercials have run, his company should be so full of employees that they need to start firing them to compensate for the tremendous amount of dead weight on the budget. You never get to find out what they actually do there.
