* Quite a few segments of the ''WesternAnimation/GarbagePailKidsCartoon'' were parody commercials. Some examples include the Automatic Tattler (a robot that tattles on children when they misbehave) and Have a Nice Meal (a powder that magically turns into whatever food you want to eat [[JustAddWater when water is added]]).

* After she beat Wrestling/IvelisseVelez for SHINE's Title at SHINE 21, Leah Von Dutch planed to open the LAHM House Of Champions, an awesome Hawaiian mansion where you could learn to be as awesome as her. But she needed your help to get it finished! Dutch agreed to say hi to you when you bump into her at a show for the starting donation of $1000, [[NoExceptYes just as long as you didn't touch her]]. $50,000 got you an autographed picture of her looking at your face book page. $55,000 dollars a night earned you a stay at a motel down the street from the mansion once it was finished! [[spoiler:It wasn't to be, the successive onslaught of Su Yung, Amazing Kong and Neveah ensured she would not get that title shot.]]

** ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'' features two parody commercials for Ship It, a boat dealership, starring Vladimir, an Eastern European man voiced by [[HeyItsThatVoice Jason Zumwalt]] (aka [[VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoIV Roman Bellic]]). He talks about how useful the boats are for trafficking and threatens to kill the listener's family if he doesn't buy boats from the dealership.

* 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.
