A Trailer Spoof is when a trailer will try to hook your attention by pretending to be a trailer for a well known movie franchise, or a highly-anticipated blockbuster film. Then anywhere from half-way to three quarters through comes TheReveal: it's actually a trailer for a perhaps not-so-anticipated comedy movie. (It's almost always some form of comedy, dramas and straight action/adventure films take themselves too seriously to try this sort of thing.)

* Citizens kept yelling "It's a bird!", "It's a plane!", but Bullwinkle said it looked like a flying squirrel in the ''{{Superman}}''-themed teaser trailer for the ''Film/RockyAndBullwinkle'' movie. Similarly, one of the trailers had the tag line "You will believe a squirrel can fly!"

* A trailer for ''Literature/DiaryOfAWimpyKid: The Long Haul'' started out as one for a generic Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse style superhero movie, showing the cartoon Greg Hefley in a muscular superhero suit. The ''actual'' trailer footage was triggered by Greg's "muscles" deflating. This iteration of the trailer was also abbreviated for television.

* The teaser for the third ''Film/AlvinAndTheChipmunks'' film baited us with the possibility of a ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}'' remake or sequel (or even the then-upcoming 3D rerelease), with an instrumental of "My Heart Will Go On" playing over footage of an ocean liner. Then Alvin appears over the ship's bow, claiming, "I'm king of the world!"

Added DiffLines:

* The UsefulNotes/NintendoSwitch Presentation trailer for ''VideoGame/OneTwoSwitch'' starts off with two cowboys approaching each other and preparing to do a fast draw, which looks like something for a [[WildWest Western]] video game. It turns out to be a demonstration for the "Quick Draw" minigame.
