I'd like to propose an alternate title for this trope—-not necessarily a name change, but an alternate title that'd redirect to the same page as Bait And Switch:

Shtick Shift

It just sounds funny, and it's to-the-point for a joke that suddenly shifts when you were expecting it to go in a particular direction.

Shouldn't the Aerosmith/dentist appointment part in Real Life be in Advertising?

Yes, although the first sentences should probably be rewritten a bit.

Is there a dramatic version of this trope? We think e.g a bullet went through a kettle so no one died but a few moments later we see it also went through someone's head

Okay, I came to this page, and I might want to suggest some of the listed sources here to get their own subpages. Because really, the list of examples from The Simpsons is so long, it's clearly clutter.
