Added DiffLines:

** A short-lived 90s comedy series called ''Get Back'' (featuring a young Creator/KateWinslet and a not-as-young Creator/RayWinstone) had every single funny joke from the first episode included in the trailers. (Then they ran out and included an unfunny one as well.) Similarly, one season opener of ''Series/TwoPointFourChildren'' was extensively trailed, so ''everyone'' had seen the gag of the parents waking up to find their son sat on their bed watching TV.


Added DiffLines:

* One next episode promo for ''{{Series/Neighbours}}'' included a gag that everyone found funny only to find it not as funny in the actual episode the next day: Partly through familiarity, partly because the promo seemed to edit it more tightly. ("You're thinking of dating Lyn Scully?"/"Do you have any advice?"/"Yes. Don't.")

Added DiffLines:

* The trailers for ''WesternAnimation/SouthParkBiggerLongerAndUncut'' kept repeating the scene where Cartman is shocked by a V-Chip when trying to swear and the "Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?" joke.

->''"Now keep in mind, this is the image that appears the most in all the advertising. The Turtle Guy. This is the character that they like to reeeally push. So, obviously, this is the comedic highlight of the movie. This is what they want you to remember the most."''
-->-- '''WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic''', referring to the Turtle Club scene from ''Film/TheMasterOfDisguise''

* Many of the ''Franchise/PiratesOfTheCaribbean'' trailers, specifically Elizabeth's "try wearing a corset" and "I don't think now's the best time" lines from the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanTheCurseOfTheBlackPearl first]] and [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanAtWorldsEnd third]] films respectively.
** Averted with a gag from the [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbeanDeadMansChest second one]] - the trailer had the following exchange:
--->'''Will:''' We have to go back for Jack!
--->'''Jack comes running around the corner, chased by natives'''
--->'''Will:''' Never mind, let's go!
** The trailer had used an outtake - Creator/OrlandoBloom had made a mistake, and was indicating that they should try the line again. In the actual film, the gag's still there but he says: "...time to go."

* ''WesternAnimation/Madagascar3EuropesMostWanted'' has a scene in which Marty does a little dance done as a clown. Pretty funny the first time. But then, it appeared in ''every single freaking trailer'' for the movie, every TV spot, every internet ad! Hell, one ad seemingly portrays Marty as trying to dethrone "I Like to Move It Move It" as the franchises's {{leitmotif}} with this new song, by interrupting King Julien and seemingly making him feel uncomfortable.

* So far every TV spot for ''WesternAnimation/KungFuPanda3'' can't get enough of the lines "Dumpling Squad" and "chit-chat".

* An odd example. The mechanical middle finger joke in Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy was censored in the trailer, being censored by an in-universe computer that has a caption that reads "Obscene Gesture Imminent." This was uncensored in the film, and ironically many fans felt the joke was ruined because of it.
