Another way it can backfire is if you ''can't find'' enough good footage to make a decent trailer, GenreSavvy audiences can extrapolate just how bad the rest of the material must be.

Indeed, the creation of fake trailers to make a movie look like it's from a completely different genre has become one of the Internet's most beloved recent art forms, such as [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/WesternAnimation/JimmyNeutronBoyGenius Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius]] as a homage to [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Film/ManOfSteel Man of Steel.]], ''Film/TheShining'' as a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KmkVWuP_sO0 family-oriented romantic comedy]], ''Film/MaryPoppins'' as a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2T5_0AGdFic slasher horror flick]], ''Series/LukeCage'' as a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0gpED0Z57RU 90's sitcom]], or the one that started it all, ''Film/TheTenCommandments'' as a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u1kqqMXWEFs chick flick]].

* 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.

** 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.

* 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.
