* An third Arby's commercial takes a dig at Chick-Fil-A in advertising their new chicken sandwiches. In it, the announcer claim that Arby's has put great care into the new sandwiches, then reassures everyone that they still have other meats. The guy goes on to laugh at the notion of a store that sells nothing but chicken sandwiches.

* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi2MUL0hNNs Google Photos ad]] features people trying to capture pictures of increasingly significant things (such as skydiving, tornadoes, and Bigfoot), but an Apple pop-up comes up (with the accompanying sound) saying storage is full. This is to promote how Google allows the ability to free up space in the moment.



** Taco Bell ads have gone as far as to paint [=McDonald's=] as a [[https://vimeo.com/125236359 '''communist''' state,]] including a Playland-esque slide and clown guards. Those who eat Taco Bell are rebellious "Breakfast Defectors" who choose something new instead of sticking to the same old routine: biscuit tacos.

Added DiffLines:

* An Arby's ad from September 2016 introduced Arby's new chicken filet sandwiches, but reassured that none of the other meats were going away because the idea of a restaurant that sells only chicken filet sandwiches (you know, kind of like Chick Fil-A) is absurd.

** More so after Apple released the iPad Pro with a keyboard attached. This time it is Cortana on the Surface Tablet reminding Siri that she is still limited by a tablet processor and the portable operating system instead of the desktop version, so she can't run desktop apps like Microsoft Office, and that the iPad also does not have a track pad or external prots to add on devices.

** Surprisingly enough, Nintendo did strike back at Sega with the ''VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IM5rYucoQRU TV ad]], announcing it as the "first fully rendered video game EVER" which, obviously, was not to be found "on Sega", "on 32X adaptors" or "on [=CD-ROM=]".
