* During the famous Ellen Puppy Episode, the Human Rights Campaign attempted to run an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YuFvrxWaOpk ad called "Shoes".]] [[note]]It was rejected by ABC, but the HRC ran the ad in local affiliates so it would still air during the episode.[[/note]] It features a woman named Betty, presumed to be a lesbian, walking out of an office after being fired from her job. The other staff members are shocked when the find out she was fired, believing that her firing was unfair and illegal. The narrator then explains that, at the time, LGB workers could be fired in 41 of the 50 states. The staff members ask Betty if they could help her, and the HRC's phone number appears on screen.

** The urban version of ''Apaches'' is called ''Building Sites Bite'' and features an intelligent yet not GenreSavvy boy named [[IdiotBall Ronald]] who is sent by his cousins to different building sites and is given the challenge to "Find his dog and get out without getting hurt." Needless to say, the poor lad stumbles upon his death in every site, being [[BuriedAlive buried alive in a trench collapse]], electrocuted by a frayed wire in a half-demolished house, breaking his skull on a concrete wall after falling off a pipe, crushed beneath a pile of bricks and drowns in an abandoned quarry. The moral of the story was that he simply should have declined to go or at least heeded all warning signs. The creepy part? When Ronald is electrocuted, they zoom in in his burned hand, then his pale body, dead on the floor of the building, [[DiesWideOpen eyes wide open.]] That, and his [[CreepyChild cousins are unfazed by his deaths.]]

** Pollution messes up a tree, making it dying. And then the picture turns upside down, and the tree turns into human lungs. Tagline: when nature is polluted, you can't escape from it too.

* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zz8t-ATXkQI This advert]] ran throughout early 1998, to encourage people to vote in favour of that year's [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Good_Friday_Agreement Good Friday Peace Agreement]]. The song, Marmalade's ''Reflections Of My Life'', was used because (as noted in the advert) it was recorded in 1969, the same year that The Troubles began. Of course, the people of Northern Ireland voted in favour of the Agreement, partly as a result of this campaign.

* From Idaho, there was [[https://youtu.be/SAhHqt_OFt8 Teen Mommy Darci]] and [[https://youtu.be/WoYuxIV0Z1w Action Teen Father]], which attempt to present the perils of teen pregnancy by disguising themselves as doll/action-figure commercials, respectively.(Action Teen Father also seems to imply that "Taking responsibility for your child is for wimps.")

* The subway safety video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?&v=IJNR2EpS0jw "Dumb Ways To Die"]] by Melbourne Metro. Apparently, cute cartoon characters dying in grisly ways + [[EarWorm a catchy song]] = InstantWebHit.
