** Ad copy guidelines dictate that the full name of the [=PS3=] is "PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system" and the Xbox 360 is "Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft." It leads to some unwieldy marketing sentences.

* UK GameShows will ALWAYS refer to the PS3 or Xbox 360 they're offering as a prize as "a games console" even though [[BlatantLies nobody in the UK will ever use that term]]. Especially odd given that it's ProductPlacement and you'd expect them to spell out the name of the product.

*** Originally IBMs ran PC-DOS. The name was owned by IBM, but Microsoft could sell it to other companies, which it did as "MS-DOS." In the early days "PC-Compatible" meant it should run PC-DOS software, but the emulation wasn't always perfect.

Added DiffLines:

* Hormel Foods Corporation would prefer one to not use an Internet slang term in association with "unsolicited commercial e-mail" or "unwanted junk e-mail", even suing the makers of software applications using this term, however, they seem to be more welcoming of this term in recent years, as consumers may subconsciously program themselves to be craving of delicious canned meats.

* Parodied in ''WesternAnimation/InvaderZim''. You remember how your elementary school fundraiser had those cheesy prizes for selling ''x'' products? Well, in Zim's one prize is apparently a box of [[AC:adhesive medical strips.]] It's not only dubbed over in an instructional video; it's dubbed over in an actual conversation.



* Lampshaded in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', episode "A Tale of Two Springfields", in which Bart and friends repeatedly refer to a Frisbee (still a registered trademark of Wham-O) as a "novelty flying disc."
** Another time Bart lamented finding Otto in a dumpster, whereupon he corrected him. "Dumpster brand trash bins are top of the LINE! This is just a Trash Co waste disposal unit." There really is such a brand (or was).
* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'' has played with a "small plastic disk that you throw". Looking for a less unwieldy name, they come up with a "small plastic disk that you ''toss''".
** In another episode of SpongeBob, the Krusty Krab group is on a company picnic when SpongeBob makes a game by covering a paper plate with mustard and Mr. Krabs says that they can toss it around like "Those things you toss back and forth."

* One particularly jarring example in the movie ''Film/CabinFever''; on their way to the title cabin, JamesDeBello's character says he left his "''Mott's'' apple juice" back at the general store. Much like the [[SaturdayNightLive cowbell]] in Music/BlueOysterCult's "Don't Fear The Reaper", once you notice it, you can't un-notice it.

** Also overt product placement was technically illegal on British-made TV in general until Ofcom (the regulatory body) relaxed the rules somewhat in 2011, meaning even if it was a paid for plug naming the product directly could land the program makers in trouble.

Added DiffLines:

** For Frosted Flakes, at least, it's justified - generic/store brand knockoffs are almost always also called "Frosted Flakes."

* An ad for ''Polaner All-Fruit'' featured rich people asking to "Pass the Polaner All-Fruit," around a table. When one of them asks (in a broad Texan cowboy [[AmericanAccents accent]]) "Could'ya please pass the jelly?" everyone present is shocked by his faux "faux-pas."
