** 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.

*** And speaking of Sony's problems, Microsoft's UsefulNotes/XBox360 campaigning during UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation3}}S3's launch was pure Take That glory. Highlights were crashing Sony's live broadcast launch party held on a ship by parking another ship in the background with a large XBox360 poster on the side, and Microsoft employees offering chairs for people queuing up for game stores on launch day, each chair decorated with an advert for a website where you could read Microsoft's sympathies for people having to wait in rain when they could have just played a 360 ages before.

* The commercial for the first ''Nonstop Nicktoons Weekend'' in 1993 took a shot at the then-new Creator/CartoonNetwork. Granted, it was mostly just Hanna-Barbera reruns at the time.

In 2017 a new series of ads for the iPad Pro prove that it is a better solution to replace a PC than the Microsoft Surface because it can run on LTE cell service (data caps apply), has a touchscreen (which the Surface has), and does not get viruses (after all, there is no such thing as antivirus software).
