* {{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.

* The Spirituality skill on the Danish for English Speakers [[http://www.duolingo.com Duolingo]] lesson is this. 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’.

** Similarly, at the 1994 San Marino FormulaOne Grand Prix, Ferrari's test driver Nicola Larini (substituting for the regular driver Jean Alesi) finished second - his career best result at his team's home circuit. He drove the slow-down lap waving to the crowd and flying a Ferrari flag, only to learn that Ayrton Senna had died after a crash earlier in the race.

** The Hallmark channel is especially guilty of this, particularly during their 2 am-3 am block of sitcoms. They used to have a commercial for St Jude's Children's Hospital, featuring images of children dying of cancer while a very sad (and somewhat creepy) Pink Martini song plays, during every. single. commercial. break. Usually in the break's final slot, making it somewhat hard to laugh at "Frasier" and "Cheers" when we just watched kids going through chemotherapy. ** There's a similar commercial for the Humane Society with sad, abused animals in cages, staring at the viewer with Sorrowful Eyes, over captions like "Why do they beat me?" "When will someone come get me?" while SarahMcLachlan's "Angel" plays. Makes it hard to get back to the inanity of ''{{Cheers}}'' and the like. ** This also happens during the UsefulNotes/MacysThanksgivingDayParade, which is one of the most dopey-happy annual TV events this side of the EurovisionSongContest. Sometimes the last slot(s) in the commercial break will be filled with an ad for a more dramatic NBC fare like ''Series/{{Believe}}'', ''Series/TheBlacklist'' and ''Series/ChicagoFire'', a PSA for something like the aforementioned St. Jude's, and/or something just melancholic. Back from commercial, though, and they hit us with a high-energy dance group/cheerleaders, an upbeat and poppy song from whoever's popular at the time, a troupe of tap-dancing Christmas trees, or the Franchise/PowerRangers. However, this varies depending on which NBC affilate you're watching it from, as they sometimes overwrite ads to air local promos/promos for other networks.

Subverted during earlier parades in which everything was more laid-back, making it easier for more downbeat ads to ease into the parade's typical NarmCharm.

* Similar to the commercial break example below, this trope can happen during the break itself. It can be pretty jarring when they show a St. Jude or animal abuse commercial and then go immediately into a normal, upbeat ad.
