* Due to it coming out around the same time as ''IndianaJonesAndTheLastCrusade'', the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ukOzVWBJE6E teaser]] for ''Film/{{UHF}}'' made it look like it was for the next Indiana Jones movie before switching around to reveal the face of Music/WeirdAlYankovic.

** The second movie came out the same year as ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' and had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65LjJMqHkoc a trailer]] that started by going through the Death Star with VaderBreath in the background while closing in on a chair... until the ChairReveal has Dr. Evil sitting in it. After that, the trailer goes in more typical Austin Powers style, including the narrator saying "If you see only one movie this summer, see... ''Star Wars''. But if you see two movies, see ''Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me!''"
** A trailer for ''Austin Powers in Goldmember'' began in a manner similar to the opening credits of ''Film/{{Goldfinger}}''. Which in turn led MGM to sue New Line for copyright infringement. The suit was settled and in exchange, the trailer to ''Film/DieAnotherDay'' was attached to all prints of ''Goldmember''.

* The trailer for ''[[DumbAndDumber Dumb and Dumberer]]'' disguised itself as a trailer for ''Literature/TheHobbit'', leaving every member of the audience sorely pissed.

* Nearly every trailer for the first ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' appeared to be a trailer for some other Disney movie at first, only to be interrupted by Stitch, partly to make it clear it was a lighter, wackier film than the company's usual output. Which was [[NeverTrustATrailer kind of misleading, really]]; this movie has some pretty heart-rending moments.

* A commercial for the episode of ''Series/TheGoldbergs'' that aired October 21, 2015 started off spoofing ''Film/BackToTheFuture'', the airdate being the day that Marty went into the future. However, it showed the series' title in the form of a hashtag in the lower left corner, which somewhat ruined the effect.

* The trailer for ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'': amiibo Festival looked like a long-awaited Wii U main ''Animal Crossing'' title, until the screen pans to reveal board game titles. That's right, it's another Creator/{{Nintendo}} PartyGame. [[BrokenBase Reaction to this was mixed.]]

* An early trailer for ''Film/{{Underdog}}'' started out spoofing Superman, in keeping with the superhero film theme. Didn't work.

* One television commercial for ''NottingHill'' tried the same device against ''Austin Powers'' by focusing on a wacky supporting character. It didn't quite work.
