Added DiffLines:

* TrailersAlwaysSpoil: Surprising, but these two often overlap heavily. It's not uncommon for a trailer to give away a plot-twist that occurs late in a film, while giving the impression that said plot-twist occurs much earlier and drives the primary conflict.

Added DiffLines:

* Comic book solicitations in general can be like this. The descriptions are often drawn up long before the story itself is even written, sometimes without the input of the issue's writer. Because stories can change due to ExecutiveMeddling, rescheduling, and even changes in direction by the writer themselves, it's not uncommon for the solicited issue to have nothing to do with the final product at all!

* In the print ads for ''Son of {{Svengoolie}}'', if a film was called "X of {{Dracula}}" or "Franchise/{{Frankenstein}}'s X" they always ran a picture of Creator/BelaLugosi or Creator/BorisKarloff in costume as the title monster, even if they weren't in the film and it wasn't a UniversalHorror film.

Added DiffLines:

* The summary for ''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/10028141/1/Persona-4-Hot-springs-with-Yukiko Persona 4 Hot Springs With Yukiko]]'' makes it vaguely sound like a RevengeFic for the game's hot springs scene, in which the girls threw things at the guys for barging in on them, even though they were the ones in the hot springs at the wrong time. In actuality, it's a [=Yu/Yukiko=] fic in which they end up in mixed bathing.

Of course, TropesAreNotBad, as used correctly this can be a very clever way of averting TrailersAlwaysSpoil (by not mentioning or downplaying the real main plot) or HypeBacklash (by underselling the quality and letting word of mouth do the rest once it actually is out). But we're a cynical bunch here at TV Tropes, and in the worst examples it'll actually drive away those who would have otherwise enjoyed it, by completely confusing the relevant demographic.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18ya0-OZ58s This trailer]] for Snickers' Super Bowl ad leads you to believe that the guys in it really have Betty White on their team. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3rsaneyeXY In the actual commercial]] she is called "Mike" and is told, "You play like Betty White!" She then eats a Snickers, and after a brief cutaway, she's replaced by a guy, proving that she only appears in the ad to support the {{tagline}}: "You're not you when you're hungry." [[spoiler:And so does Abe Vigoda.]]
