** Taken to horrific levels when a human "nurse" walks into a hospital nursery and prepares to eat a '''''baby''''' Pop Tart while it's parents (a jar of peanut butter and a jar of jelly) can only watch in horror.

** More recent Swiffer ads show a mud stain that looks and acts like a human ValleyGirl in a brown dress or a film that looks and acts like a human classic movie star in a gray dress who refuse to let a mop take them away and fall in love with the Swiffer. My dad said he also saw one with a male piece of dirt.

* Ads for Mucinex, a respiratory decongestant designed to cause mucus to loosen and come up more quickly, feature sentient globs of mucus happily making a home in somebody's lung. They're usually deliberately played up as [[Jerkass massive effin' pricks]] who get comfortable by making their unwilling host ''uncomfortable'', and tend to be incorrigible slobs, so we're clearly supposed to sympathize with the humans who use Mucinex.

* Pop Tarts full stop. The commercials feature Pop Tart characters and even give us glimpses into their hopes and dreams as well as showing them running in terror from the humans trying to eat them. One commercial has a male Pop Tart looking for his girlfriend when a human suddenly pops up and says "She was delicious" and then throws him into a toaster. The humans come off like {{psychopath}}s if you assign any human value to the Pop Tarts.

* An old Fig Newton commercial features a talking fig (an obvious guy in a fig costume) in a huge barrel yelling, "Fire! Fire" and pleading like this: "I love Fig Newtons, but only when I eat them, I don't want to ''be'' one!" When some kids run up and ask him where's the fire, he replies, "Would you come if I'd yelled, 'Newton! Newton'?"

* One lotion commercial features a talking rash, who wheedles the person it's on to scratch him. He panics when she decides to use the lotion instead.

** There was an M&M's commercial where Red, Yellow and Crispy are seen eating bags of their respective type. Patrick Warburton walks in, and questions that, while he's eating M&M's too, they're basically acting like cannibals. They proceed to swap bags and before he takes them away in disgust.

* Similar to the Raid example, Domestos bleach adverts in the UK (and possibly other countries) depicted anthropomorphic germs being ''melted'' by the bleach at the end of each advert, accompanied with the slogan "Millions of Germs Will Die" delivered in a flat, deadpan voice, often with the germ ''screaming in terror''. The early adverts were borderline sinister, so in the years since they have attempted RuleOfFunny to various degrees.
