* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNMWgmvdLws An Orange cinema ad]] based on ''[[Literature/GulliversTravels Gulliver's Travels]]'' parodies this. When Creator/JackBlack notices all the ProductPlacement going on, he complains about it ruining the iconic scene in which Gulliver Travels wakes up tied to the ground.
* When the Smith Brothers trademarked their logo for their cough drops, the product label split the word "Trademark" in two, putting the words "Trade" and "Mark" under portraits of the two brothers. As a result, it has always been assumed that the Smith Brothers' names were Trade and Mark. Their names were actually William (Trade) and Andrew (Mark).
* In the 90s, TNT would air promo ads for ''Franchise/{{Godzilla}}'' movie marathons as part of their Monstervision TV specials. One promo ad would list the names of various foes Godzilla fought. The problem? One of the monsters is listed as "Baragon" in the promo but is actually Gabara.
* The "Target Dog" in the See "Spot Save" commercials is not actually named "Spot". Reportedly, the dog's name is "Bullseye". The "spot" is actually a reference to Target Store's logo.
