** You're not you when you're hungry. [[labelnote:Explanation]]2012 Snickers ads involved one person acting out and a companion saying, "X, eat a Snickers," prompting the former to ask why. The latter would reply, "You turn into a Y when you're hungry." The angry person would eat the food and turn back into normal. It has since evolved into a snowclone.[[/labelnote]]

*** And before any of those, back in the '80s:
--> "Gimme a light!" (Enter a pair of glowsticks, or a lit-up jukebox, or a flaming hoop with dogs jumping through) "No, Bud Light!" [[labelnote:Explanation]] Bud Light was still a relatively new product for Budweiser at the time. For quite a while, it was not uncommon for wiseguy viewers to answer any movie or TV shot of something exploding or shining brightly with "No, Bud Light!"

* Nick India Dab[[labelnote:Explanation]]A particularly cringy interstitial on the Indian version of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} (for their Teacher's Day initiative), involving a boy teaching people how to dab. It's found life in the rest of the world as a source for "X but Y" memes.[[/labelnote]]

* "'''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPVB5rB63Vw I AM PROTO! YOUR SECURITY IS MY...MOTTO!]]'''"[[labelnote:Explanation]] An infamous series of ads for an Indian anti-virus program called Protogent Complete Security; notable for its [[SoBadItsGood hilariously awful]] rapping, {{Painful Rhyme}}s, WordSaladLyrics, and the mascot whose design is seemingly a rip-off of that of the main character of ''WesternAnimation/SuperWhy'', Wyatt, of all characters. After the ads got a ColbertBump by Joel from WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}}, remixes, "X but Y" videos, and [[WesternAnimation/YouTubePoop YouTube Poops]] ensued.[[/labelnote]]
** "[[DullSurprise Oops, my system crashed. I lost my data. But I had an anti-virus!]]" "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uM72zbTXHSI ANTI-VIRUS IS NOT ENOUGH!]]"[[labelnote:Explanation]] Another (newer) Protogent ad featuring the Wyatt rip-off mascot (and a clone with a mustache). Notable for the DullSurprise acting and the [[VocalDissonance dissonant]] [[BadassBaritone baritone voice]] Proto has. Like the Protogent rap, the ads sees use in remixes and YTP.[[/labelnote]]
** "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6gCcImLxfM Phone video links]]"[[labelnote:Explanation]] One of the most infamous of the Protogent ads alongside the aforementioned rap, this ad was meant to showcase how the software can be used to monitor student activity in schools and make sure they aren't doing something they aren't supposed to. Instead, the ad became infamous for its poor execution (for example, the offending student experiences no serious repercussions for looking at "porn" ''during class'' beyond a stern talking to from his teacher; the "porn" itself is simply pictures of (fully clothed) men and women kissing, etc.), very poor acting, and hokey dialogue and animation. It is probably one of the most widely parodied out of the Protogent ads besides the rap and the newer ad below.[[/labelnote]]
