* Both ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' and ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' have employed this concept for years, advertising bogus products in order to make fun of various AdvertisingTropes or make fun of a current event (such as the cold opening on the Jonah Hill episode from season 33 where disgraced governor Eliot Spitzer [Bill Hader] advertises a new law firm that deals with sexual court cases, such as injuries from faulty vibrators, U.S. customs seizing German porn, and slip and falls in gay bath houses). For SNL, "HappyFunBall" is probably the best-known; ''Series/{{MADtv}}'', meanwhile, featured a plush toy called "Tickle Me Emo", an angsty, stereotypically emo version of Elmo from Sesame Street ("You don't understand what I'm going through!"). Other sketch shows, like ''Fridays'', ''InLivingColor'', ''WB's Hype'', and ''SCTV'' have done fake commercials, though it can be safe to say ''SNL'' and ''Series/{{MADtv}}'' have the most memorable parodies.

* Chris Ware's "Acme Novelty Library" comics contain tons of fake ads, most of which look like old-time comic book or magazine ads.
** The characters of Rusty Brown and Chalky White originally appeared in ads for the "GI Jim Collector's Club". In later books, they became main characters of extended stories.

* Likewise, WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons has it's fair share of parody commercials, including plot-relevant ones like the one for Homer's Mr. Plow snow plowing business.

* Do you think today's wrestling is too politically correct? Are you tired of seeing [[Wrestling/TheYoungBucks super kick, after super kick]], [[SuddenlyShouting AFTER SUPER KICK]]...well ANX hears you, and that's why in 2016 they're vowing to make wrestling great again. What, 2016 is too far gone? Don't worry, as long as Kenny King is great and Rhett Titus is great they can and will make wrestling great, even if it kills them.

** An early commercial parody poked fun at the United States Navy's "Not Just A Job, It's An Adventure" campaign, showing the less-than-glamorous side of military service: peeling potatoes, doing laundry, painting ships, scrubbing toilets, etc., followed by the slogan, "it's not just a job, it's $96.78 a week."
