* [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] in ''FetchWithRuffRuffman'', as Ruff's [[LargeHam ego]] ensures that nearly ''every'' product will have a picture of him on it. (Even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] on one occasion.)

* British reality food show ''Series/ComeDineWithMe'' was for a long time sponsored by wine company Echo Falls who used an EarWorm song, Camera Obscura's ''French Navy'', as backing music. When the show changed sponsor, people contacted the makers to ask why they'd dropped the theme tune: it simply stick in viewers' heads as the theme music, despite the fact the ''official'' theme tune, a low-key piece played on CreepyPizzicatoStrings, was still there at start and end of the show.

* The radio version of the Amazing Rhythm Aces' song "Third Rate Romance" replaces the line "They went to the Holiday Inn" with "They went to the Family Inn".
* Creator/MitchBenn's song "Budget Air", as it appears on the album ''Breaking Strings''; it was originally written for the consumer rights show ''Watchdog'' and specifically named the airline they were reporting on.

* Since rappers are prone to Product Placement in their lyrics, this can even extend to bleeping those names, with hilarious results. DigitalUnderground's "The Humpty Dance" edited the line "I once got busy in a Burger King bathroom" by bleeping out "Burger King" rather loudly and with a standard bleep normally reserved for obscene language. Incidentally, the sexually suggestive lines -- such as "I'm still gettin' in the girls' pants" and "In a 69, my Humpty nose will tickle your rear" -- had "girls' pants," "69", and "rear" bleeped out with [[SoundEffectBleep wacky sound effects, such as car horns, record scratching, and a woman's scream]].

**When Dutch soccer team FC Twente became the Dutch champions for the first and only time in 2010, they got a chance to play in the Champions League the following season. However, they had to censor the name of their stadium whenever they played in the Champions League. The tournament is sponsored by Heineken, who did not allow Twente to show the name of a rival beer brewer during Champions League matches, which was part of the name of the stadium. This lead to their stadium De Grolsch Veste being temporarily renamed to De Veste while a big blanket covered up the Grolsch logo which is prominently featured at the entrance to the stadium.

* Some reruns and many DVD releases of certain TV shows replace them with generic tunes to avoid paying royalties, two of the more infamous examples being ''Series/{{WKRP In Cincinnati}}'', and ''HappyDays'' on DVD from Season Two on.

** The Verizon store sign to the right of the ''CakeBoss'' bakery is always blurred out, but I like to think it's because it clashes with the old-fashioned, elaborate signs of the bakery and the flower shop(?) to its left.

* The original Series/KnightRider was forced into this by General Motors/Pontiac, who declared the names Pontiac, Firebird and Trans Am off limits. This is largely the cause of KITT [[TakeThat supporting a rival company]] in the final season by praising Henry Ford's choice of colour.

* On a related note, ''The Price is Right'' has the verbal descriptions of prizes used in games be generic descriptions without any brands mentioned, unless the item is sponsored and has promotional copy instead. However, sometimes (especially on prizes), they may zig-zag it by mentioning one brand and not another (i.e. referring to an Xbox One console as just a "video game package", yet still mentioning it comes with Kinect)
