* A chinese commercial for {{FedEx}} shows a messenger with a huge package saying that it was a very important parcel in mandarin. Then a old woman just gave him a weird look. A voice over tell us that [[Main/ChineseDialectsAndAccents there are 235 dialects in China]]. Then he tries in Cantonese, and then in as many dialects as he can. Then they show us a FedEx messenger speaking in the correct dialect on his first try. [[note]] it was Chongmin.[[/note]]

** Sega tried to fight the Sony Playstation by claiming its systems had 3 32-bit processors while the [[BinaryBitsAndBytes PS1 only had one processor.]] Then they followed this by shooting a Playstation, or dropping it off a building. This also backfired. Doubles as an example of HilariousInHindsight, since many game developers cited the Saturn's "three processors" as [[UnfortunateImplications a major part of the reason why the system was so difficult to develop games for.]]

* A hilarious 7UP ad from the late 90s had a blind taste test when Orlando Jones was their spokesman. Saying that 7-Up tasted better than those other drinks. The "other drinks" ranged from chum, dishwater, wallpaper paste and bile to name a few. The people who did the taste test reacted just like anyone would.

* Cable One has been running ads about AT&T's "U-Verse" service. U-Verse is offered by a rude, snarky schlub of an installer who talks about U-Verse costing more and being worse service as if these things are [[InsaneTrollLogic positive features]]--unsubtly implying that AT&T thinks all their potential customers are idiots. He brings along a [[[=Strawman=] cardboard cutout]] of a Cable One guy, for some reason. The series of commercials, ending with the [[SarcasmMode oh-so-clever]] tagline "Maybe it's really ''[[{{Pun}} you versus AT&T]]''," always feature the same guy.
