* In an 1977 commercial for Arm and Hammer, listen closely to one of the foods at the beigining. It says "Keep your smelly ass off of me". However, some people can't hear it well because the old Arm and Hammer box started talking around that time.

** An earlier line of commercials had women moaning and squealing with delight while in the shower (using the shampoo, of course), ending with an exhilarated "Yes! Yes! YES!" as they see how shiny their hair has become. The tagline? "A totally organic experience."

* Overstock.com's (now O.co's) tagline "The big, big O" is [[TheImmodestOrgasm odd]] but [[AccidentalInnuendo reasonably]] [[FreudWasRight innocuous]]. Their [[SuspiciouslySimilarSong Jingle Bells-esque]] Christmas jingle ("Oh Oh Oh, the big big O, Overstock.com", which never comes ''after'' the company is identified) crosses the line into a disturbingly unrelated attention-grabber. (In case you don't understand, the Big O is slang for an orgasm).

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xCe6NOBUut0 This ad]] for Johnson on-board motors. The only thing that makes me wonder whether it was intentional or not is the line about "your kids." That seems a little risky, even for getting crap by the radar.

* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJUBFkVrk9s Tiddy Bear!]] Which sounds very similar to what the product is hugging half the time. Good thing those women were [[{{Pedobear}} adults]] wearing seatbelts.

* 2013's SharkWeek had [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_i3PPe3i9Y this]] commercial that, [[BlackComedy though very entertaining]], is the embodiment of this trope. Between the [[GoryDiscretionShot offscreen messy death of a seal]] ([[CrossesTheLineTwice in front of children]]) and the news anchorman's CurseCutShort, one can only wonder how it got aired.

* A Specsavers advert (shown during the day) has a museum security guard going around at the end of the day and flicking off all the lights... and accidentally snapping the willy off a statue. And then at the end, he stops to glance at a painting of a cockerel.

* A 2015 Fiat commercial starts with an older woman lying in a seductive pose on her bed, beckoning her husband for what can only be sex. Excitedly, her husband grabs a bottle of blue pills and tries to pop one in his mouth, but it falls out the window instead and lands in a nearby Fiat's gas tank, causing the car to... ''swell''. And this aired on daytime television, in the United States. It's debatable if the radar was even at work that day.

* One of the more recent commercials for Serta (featuring their CountingSheep) has a couple tell the sheep they now have the Serta PerfectSleeper mattress and don't need to count them. The woman then casually mentions she hasn't been counting [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7UJe4Gs6QY the sheep in months]]. Cue the lead sheep's reaction; complete with obvious DoubleEntendre:
