Added DiffLines:

* This was parodied in one commercial for the Advertising/SeattleMariners baseball team, in which, at the advice of a PR person, "Old School Kyle Seager" re-invented himself as K-Swag, a jewelry-wearing, slang-spouting walking stereotype.

* Spoofed with the Sprite soda "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z8AH9sb97AE What is Cool?]]" commercial from 1994, where a teenage boy on the street wonders how he should try to be like one of the "cool" stereotypes, with amusing results.

Added DiffLines:

* Quaker Oats tried to reach the young crowd in the mid-90's with its "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDVHD2wvweI What's Hot, What's Not]]" commercials, using footage of hip young athletes and rock stars to show that their instant oatmeal was cool, and showed old timey things to prove that regular cold cereals were lame. It never seemed to occur to the advertisers that by their own logic, the portly, old, 18th Century Quaker Oats guy on the box would fall firmly into the "not" category.

* CartoonNetwork seems to think the way to relay a message to 2010s kids about bullying is with [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cZUYEUtOIRg painfully bad hip-hop]] that wouldn't have been "cool" even in 1991.

* Amp'd Mobile briefly retained a commercial gimmick which involved elderly people talking like teenagers. (One features an old black woman who uses street vernacular and says stuff like "Where you at?"; in another, an old white lady makes frequent usage of "like", "whatever" and "totally"; apparently, this commercial presumes that old [[TheGenerationGap Generation Gap]] stereotypes will die out, but ''racial'' ones never will.) Later referenced on the ''TheSimpsons'':
