* The Honeycomb cereal's Crazy Craving mascot that was used from the mid 1990s until a decade later. It is a computer-generated mammalian MascotWithAttitude-like character who used to spawn along live-action humans in search for the cereal until the very turn of the millennium when further commercials made it a human transformation. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6T0ZXKunoD0 This commercial]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CwbUA6PDhoI another one]] views examples of the unsettling transforming from human to Craving.

* Back when GSN was still Game Show Network, they had an ad featuring two clips from ''ThePriceIsRight:'' the first showed Bob Barker remarking that both Showcase Showdown contestants had made the same bid, and it had never happened before. The second clip was from an earlier episode showing it had happened before. Nothing scary yet...until the screen fades to black with the message, "Be careful what you say...[[BigBrotherIsWatching Game Show Network is watching.]]"

* A print ad for a radio station is this. It has a woman smiling at something offscreen. However, her eyes have been replaced by her ears, making this pure BodyHorror. See it [[http://i.imgur.com/Q0gYMtI.jpg here.]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DGAHtWV7Ua8 The original trailer]] for the ''Film/{{Alien}}'' is this all the way. It starts off by showing various clips of the film with a HeartbeatSoundtrack and the intermittent sound of a frighteningly inhuman wail playing in the background, before the clips get progressively creepier and creepier, which builds up into everything plummeting into pure insanity as we're then shown quick clips of utter chaos and the characters screaming. The trailer then cuts to complete silence, ending with the iconic tagline being shown:
