** Hulu, which is basically TV online(complete with commercials) has this in spades. So you're watching a dramatic show where the main character just died/killed someone important/reunited with a lost family member when- Bam! A chipper commercial about makeup or iPods whith bright colors and upbeat music. The fact that most of the commercials aren't lined up to places where there originally should have been a break on the initial TV run just makes it all worse.
** The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Accident_Compensation_Corporation ACC]] of UsefulNotes/NewZealand ran a series of safety ads in the early-mid 2000s before being banned. The most notorious ad features a mother advertising a product called "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u51OxZF1ltI Fruit-E-Bars]]" [[spoiler: before tripping over her son's Tonka truck and [[BloodlessCarnage falling head first into a coffee table]]]].

* Language learning platform Duolingo features sentences ranging from mundane to hilarious or depressing. Getting them in certain orders will cause odd mood swings in the lesson. Some concrete examples:
** The Spirituality skill from Danish for English Speakers. One lesson is all about zombies, aliens, and vampires, with such delightful sentences such as ‘It’s not my fault [[ImplausibleDeniability the alien steals my homework every day]]’, and the next lesson can hit you right after with ‘I bought a nice tombstone for my son’s grave’.

** The Date and Time skill from Italian for English speakers. It's full of mundane stuff like "Today is Monday", and then it suddenly throws "He dies in December" at you.

* In the world of political ads, few are as reeking of mood whiplash as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFoimWJTroQ this actual ad]] for the (now defunct) Israeli political party "Holocaust Survivors and Grown-Up Green Leaf Party," advocating a dual platform of supporting the rights of Holocaust survivors and marijuana legalization. If the video doesn't play, imagine a scene of a poor [[UsefulNotes/TheHolocaust Holocaust]] survivor scored like [[Film/SchindlersList Schindler's List]], suddenly followed by a peppy jingle about marijuana legalization.

* {{Creator/HBO}}'s Comic Relief specials would often alternate between hilarious stand-up comedy performances and solemn "please help the homeless" speeches. Granted, the help the homeless message was the point of the specials, but it was still jarring.
