* 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.

* {{Invoked|trope}} for humor by Sprint with their 2013 commercials featuring Creator/JamesEarlJones and Creator/MalcolmMcDowell. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JXnFdNriAEk Totes magotes!]]

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'':

* In Italy they started adding in the buses ads reminding people to leave your seat to elder people. One of them just says "Be polite - leave your seat", while the other one says "leaving your seat is TOO MUCH AWESOME!"

* Creator/{{Sony}}'s been particularly bad about this with their UsefulNotes/{{PlayStationPortable}} advertising.
** An advertisement for the "Slim and Lite" revision of the PSP suggests that players can "put it where they like", which typically means "shove it up their ass". Sony seems to be getting annoyed at their customers.
** At one point, an incredibly poorly-disguised viral marketing campaign [[{{Astroturf}} attempting to masquerade as a fan website]] noted of the PSP, "I'd hit that." [[{{Squick}} Does it even have the right ports for that?]]
