* ''Series/WhoWantsToBeASuperhero'' has a truly painful example, where "Erin [=eSurance=]" (the ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' knock-off mascot from online insurance company [=eSurance=]) is digitally inserted into the show itself as a VoiceWithAnInternetConnection guide to one mission. The contestants manage to be nonchalant about it, even though they're essentially getting instructions from a walking advertisement.

* ''Series/MythBusters'' genericizes any products it uses (except for a few cases, such as Mentos and Diet Coke for the Mentos and Diet Coke myth) by using blurring or sleeves with the Mythbusters logo, and occasionally has short segments endorsing "blur" or "Mythbusters" brand products.

* In ''[[Series/NoReservations Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations]]'' while covering Singapore, he declares that the food in the Hyatt™ chain of hotels over there does not suck. During the segment he makes passing remarks about how he's endorsing the establishment for free and wants to get in on the endorsement act like so many other celebrities eventually give into. Which he does, sort of, in the next segment by posing with some items in front of one of his professional photographer friends.

***Throughout seasons 3 and 4, the Prius plugs recur but take on an increasingly irreverent tone, such as Steve starting to shill the car's features only for Artie to sharply rebuke him for doing something so frivolous while they're in the middle of looking for a dangerous artifact. Or when Pete and Claudia are stopped by a massive fissure in the road and Pete asks if Claudia thinks the car could make the jump, she sarcastically responds "yeah, and we can use Bing to figure out just how deep the gorge is." It seems that the writers eventually either became tired of or annoyed by the requirement to have in-universe Prius ads and decided to make them as dumb, useless, and non-serious as possible.

** They have an unusual one in Pizza Pizza, a UsefulNotes/{{Toronto}}-based regional chain that's ubiquitous in that city and throughout Ontario but doesn't really exist in the rest of Canada and couldn't even go by that name in the United States due to trademark issues with Little Caesar's.

* Of course, in just about any kind of sporting event televised live, the walls around the field and stadium will typically be plastered with eye-catching brand logos for whenever the camera happens to follow a play in their direction. With the advent of digital manipulation, some cameras can even be programmed to insert such advertisements into the frame whenever the camera turns toward the walls, changing which logos are shown from week to week depending on who's paying to be endorsed.
