* When ''WaitingForGodot'' made its American debut in Miami, its marketing prominently featured stars Bert Lahr (The Cowardly Lion) and Tom Ewell (from ''The Seven-Year Itch''). Posters declared the play to be "the laugh sensation of two continents."

* DaydreamSurprise: The greatest way for a trailer to exploit the lack of context. That scene we saw in the trailer is actually just someone's imagination, and does not count.

Added DiffLines:

** RedSkiesCrossover: A big CrossOver event was advertised, but the effect it has on the story is woefully minimal.

** WolverinePublicity: A hugely popular character is advertised on the cover as a bait hook for readers... but their involvement in the story ranges from paper-thin to absolutely none.

** This actually gets a CallBack in the season three finale ''[[ExactlyWhatItSayOnTheTin The Longest Recap Ever]]'', where Twilight ''finally'' says the line from the trailer and asks the audience if they can finally shut up about it.

Added DiffLines:

* The trailer for seasons two of the AbridgedSeries ''WebVideo/UltraFastPony'' plays this for laughs, with the creator Wacarb running down a long list of things that will happen that did not, as well as Twilight saying the line "I am so full of all of the emotions" over footage of her break down in [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS2E3LessonZero Lesson Zero]] which was never stated at any point in the season. Later Wacarb went on record, saying that the trailers should be treated as there own little thing and not a real representation of the season, after several people questioned him about it. Though it is averted with the following season's trailers, which are more obviously designed just to get people excited and not to give them any information on what's to come.

* Parodied in ''WebAnimation/HomestarRunner'' starting with Jibblies 2. The costumes Strong Bad is wearing in the teasers for upcoming Halloween toons are never the ones he wears in the toons themselves.
-->'''COACH Z:''' Hey, Strong Bad! I thought you was gonna dress up as the alien this year!\\
'''STRONG BAD:''' Yeah, I was gonna, but when I got to Hammacher Schlammacher's, they were all sold out. I did get an awesome Shiatsu massage wine opener, though.

* The solicit introducing the new post-''Comicbook/FearItself'' [[Comicbook/TheAvengers Avengers]] line-up showed the teenage version of TheVision from ''YoungAvengers''. When the book actually dropped, the cover had been altered to instead show the classic, adult Vision. Presumably, this was to hide the fact that the Teen!Vision was being killed off in ''Comicbook/TheChildrensCrusade''.
