* One Chuck E. Cheese's showtape (The Holiday Party one from 1999) had an intermission segment entitled "Chuck E. Cheese's Classic Theatre, in which the CEC Characters (sans Chuck E.) Are singing Deck the Halls, which at one point is taken up to chipmunk speed. After the narrator announces the segment's outro, he goes on to say "Who Writes This Stuff? Honestly!"

* A famous example of "celebrities at their worst" is an MP3, originating from the BBC's Classic ''Series/DoctorWho'' site no less, of Creator/TomBaker recording a commercial for a company named Symphony Furniture. The seven-minute recording features Tom berating the other poor individuals in the studio without mercy, saying (among other hilarious quips) that the commercial should've been marketed as a sleep aid, read like a translation from early Serbo-Croat (or "fucking Albanian"), seemed to have been written by a "fucking infant teacher," and was powerful enough in its sheer emotion to give him an erection. (That said, most of Baker's criticisms - including one where he berates the writers for treating the audience like fools - are legitimate.)

* The infamous ''Frozen Peas'' tape, featuring outtakes from Creator/OrsonWelles' readings of various commercials where he complains about the directors, the inane pronunciations, and the writing. (As with Tom Baker's radio outtakes, most of Welles' criticisms are actually sound, including the fact he is being given contradictory directions at one point.)

Added DiffLines:

* In the 'Down Down' series of advertising for Coles Supermarkets in Australia, a recurring theme has been how annoying the advertisements are. In the first one, members of rock group Status Quo conclude that 'Saving money is never annoying', and in the later one featuring Casey Donovan, they quip, "This one's even more annoying."

** Admittedly, firstly, in most printings, the image in question is incredibly small, and/or also printed on the fold line, and secondly, several dozen volumes before the reveal. Only a incredibly dedicated reader would be aware there WAS foreshadowing. It's a ChekovsGun where everyone checked the gun for a bullet, and put it away in a box, and then all wondered why they heard a bang in the back of the storeroom.

* In the very first chapter of Creator/SpikeMilligan's ''Puckoon'' the hero Dan Milligan (no relation?) has a conversation with the Author in which he complains about the legs the Author has written for him. When he asks the Author whether he wrote his own legs the Author admits that he didn't. Dan complains about the Author getting himself a decent leg-writer and then writing crappy old legs for Dan. The author tries to calm Dan down by claiming that he'll develop Dan's legs with the plot.
