* An ad for Sandals Resorts usea a remix of the Music/BlackEyedPeas song "I Gotta Feeling" with lyrics from "[[Film/DirtyDancing (I've Had) The Time of My Life]]". What makes this mashup even more curious is that the group actually ''did'' do a song that sampled the chorus of the latter ("The Time (Dirty Bit)").

* The [[https://www.ispot.tv/ad/AITG/peek-a-boos-phone-holder commercial]] for Ty's Peek-A-Boo phone holders has a song that sounds incredibly similar to [[Music/{{Devo}} Devo]]'s "Whip It", albeit without a guitar and sounds almost techno-like. Ironically, Devo has a song named "Peek-A-Boo"

* An [[https://youtu.be/470bdH73TUY advert]] by a New Zealand political party used stock music ([[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial titled "Eminem Esque", we must add]]) that was a soundalike of Music/{{Eminem}}'s "Lose Yourself". However, in 2017, a court ruled that the party was guilty of copyright infringement of the original song, and were fined $600,000, even though they had properly licensed the stock piece.
