** 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 ''Series/{{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.

** 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.
