* Advertising/SegataSanshiro takes it personally that people don't play the UsefulNotes/SegaSaturn, and will ''beat them up'' to get them to play on it.

Added DiffLines:

* McDonalds ad campaigns for the [=McRib=] tend to be about how fans of the sandwich treat its "limited time only" return as serious business. Granted, in this case they're not too far off the mark.

Added DiffLines:

* This [[https://youtu.be/O67cNrjdh9c cheese commercial]] starts with a presidential candidate politely decline cheese, saying he doesn't like it. Almost immediately, his popularity takes a nosedive and he ends up losing the election.

This page features ads that are "SeriousBusiness." It should be noted that in many of these ads, the fact that people are taking the product so seriously is the intended joke.

joke. And, let's be honest, the whole point of advertisement is to make anything SeriousBusiness so you'll buy the required product.

* Several commercials for the Visa Check Card showed people who were so serious about needing ID before accepting a check as payment that they wouldn't do so even when the customer's identity was pretty obvious. In one, Bob Dole needed one to pay with a check ''in his home town.'' In another, Main/JamesBond needs one in a spy-exclusive nightclub that requires a retina scan, voice scan, and fingerprint scan simply to get into. In yet another, Shirley [=MacLaine=] meets a woman who was her best friend in ''multiple'' past lives; she still needs an ID before accepting her check.

** And wearing black? ARE YOU MAD!?! Some of the old commercials would show an 8x10 glossy of the spokesman in black, and the camera would zoom in on the white flakes on his/her shoulder. The actor would even circle the offending area with a marker, [[ViewersAreMorons just in case you missed it]].

* Some of DirecTV ads treat recording space as this. Two recordings are conflicting each other? Expect a massive fallout between family members and be on the verge of destroying each other unless you get the upgrade to five recordings at any time.

* The SegaSaturn was Advertising/SegataSanshiro's way of life. If you didn't play it, he ''beat the living crap out of you''.
