* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ekoETowzmAo The promo for the fourth season]] of ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'' had three straight BaitAndSwitch (with SelfDeprecation on how the show isn't that successful or broad appeal): the biggest HBO show on Sundays (John appears from behind [[Series/GameOfThrones the Iron Throne]]), the HBO hit comedy (John is revealed to be in [[Series/SiliconValley the Pied Piper offices]]) and the return of the HBO show everyone was waiting for ([[Series/CurbYourEnthusiasm Larry David]] is besides John - "[we've been off for] [[UnCancelled five years!]]").

* "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6CloKbXtD28 Green With Envy]]" is seemingly a cliché romantic comedy starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams. [[spoiler:Then halfway through, both the narrator and Segel are baffled that the actual film featured in the trailer is ''Film/TheMuppets'' (2011).]]
** Two more trailers were also spoofs of the ones for ''Film/TheHangoverPartII'' & ''Film/GreenLantern''.
*** After releasing a proper trailer, they [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QHqLcEtt368 did it again]], this time masquerading as ''[[Literature/TheMillenniumTrilogy The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo]]''.
*** Even a commercial for the DVD started off looking like ''Film/TheHungerGames''.

** Mere weeks before the film was to be released, they then went [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsPz51_M3fI recursive]] by completely inverting the "Green With Envy" trailer (complete with Jason Segel billed as [[http://muppet.wikia.com/wiki/File:FinalMuppetsParodyTrailer-09.jpg "Jason the Segel"]]), before doing rapid-fire parodies of ''Film/ParanormalActivity 3'', ''WesternAnimation/PussInBoots'', ''WesternAnimation/HappyFeet 2'', and ''[[Literature/{{Twilight}} Breaking Dawn Part 1]]''.

* OlderThanTheyThink: From 1976, the trailer for ''Franchise/ThePinkPanther Strikes Again'' was able to take advantage of this trope thanks to the story upping the stakes from previous installments. At first, the trailer appears to be for a straight action movie -- until the reveal (via trailer-specific footage) that the diabolical villain is Inspector Dreyfus, and his evil plot threatening the world is motivated solely by his desire to get rid of Inspector Clouseau once and for all.

* The 2011 ''Disney/WinnieThePooh'' movie came out the same weekend as ''[[Film/HarryPotter Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]]'', and thus some Pooh ads started out with lighting text on a cloudy sky (like the Harry Potter movies) with taglines such as "Get ready for the final battle" and "How do you spell adventure?"...with cuts to Pooh running from bees and inverting a set of blocks from "[[TakeThat POTR]]" to "POOH". Once the film's logo appears, there's a clip of Pooh saying, "Expecting someone else". However, in some cases, they have already shown the Walt Disney logo, which somewhat ruins the effect.
