* Parodied with an advert for Ocean Spray cranberry juice, which demonstrates that a swimming pool lane filled with cranberries is easier to swim through that one filled with pineapples.

Added DiffLines:

* A UK advert for Fairy dish detergent had a long picnic table with place settings representing all the dishes washed by a bottle of "the leading washing up liquid", and then a much longer table, which of course represented Fairy.

-->'''Voiceover''': I don't know what that proves, but it definitely proves it 100%!

* Subverted--much to the manufacturer's likely chagrin--on the earliest BobAndRay shows. During a stint with a floorwax sponsor that asked them to urge customers to make a side-by-side test on their own floors, Bob once inquired mid-commercial, "Uh...if we're so sure they'll think [sponsor's wax] is better, why should they bother doing the test?"

* One advertisement for the AmstradCPC was intended to show how much easier it was to set up than other home computers of the time. The other computer shown is shown from such an angle that the maker's name isn't visible, but its grey case suggests it's a UsefulNotes/ZXSpectrum +2 -- which Amstrad [[OurProductSucks also sold]]. Spectrums were technically inferior, but a ''lot'' cheaper (under £100 new, which is noteworthy even now and really something back in the 1980s) and much more popular. As long as there were Spectrums, Amstrad had trouble selling more advanced lines.

* Parodied with a Sprite commercial, which compared the cleaning power of Sprite against some random brand-name detergent by placing dirty cloths in a bowl. After several simulated minutes, the cleaning detergent won the contest. The demonstrator then drank the bottle before drinking from the bowl used for the dirty shirt.

* Referenced for a brief gag in ''[[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy So Long And Thanks For All The Fish]]'', involving a one-shot character's dog. Said dog had a brief and inglorious career in dogfood commercials because it failed to remember it wasn't supposed to eat the "other leading brands" on offer, even though the crew had taken the precaution of pouring ''engine oil'' over them.
