* CheckPlease: This [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SB7ZWtgq4uM commercial]] has a guy eating pancakes taking a 'small sip' on a female customer's milk, but realizes he actually drank most of it. So, he pours most of his water glass into the milk glass to "fill" it back up, with another guy watching the whole thing unfold. The female customer returns and reveals the other guy was her boyfriend/fiancée. The first guy has an OhCrap expression and meekly asks for the check.

** One wonders why this commercial wasn't shown around the time ''Film/{{The Avengers|2012}}'' premiered in theaters?

'''Got Milk?''' (or '''[[AllLowercaseLetters got milk?]]''' as it's normally rendered) was an advertising campaign by the California Milk Processor Board, advertising (what else) milk. The ads are typically some sort of celebrity or fictional figure encouraging the consumption of milk. Due to the campaign being widespread, it's been "endorsed" by some pretty odd characters and figures, including WesternAnimation/{{Shrek}}, Franchise/{{Batman}}, and even Creator/WhoopiGoldberg.[[note]]Who's lactose-intolerant and initially did not sign on to the campaign until lactose-free milk became available[[/note]]

* TakeThat: PETA's rather uninformed article on milk's effects on autism. [[http://www.peta.org/features/got-autism-learn-link-dairy-products-disease/ Yes, it exists.]]


* AesopCollateralDamage: The general theme of "milk is good for you" could be {{Anvilicious}} at times. One commercial features a young boy who doesn't want to drink milk, saying it's "for babies", then points to his elderly neighbor who never drinks it, saying he does just fine. Then said neighbor's arms fall off as he tries to lift something heavy. Cue the boy and his sister gulping their milk.
