* In the ''WebAnimation/StrongBadEmail'' "candy product", Strong Bad thinks up a ridiculous candy bar called SBLOUNSKCHED!, and then imagines a commercial where he goes around messing with his friends and neighbors, who brush off whatever he did to them when he holds up the candy bar.
-->'''Strong Bad:''' Man, with a candy bar like that, you could get away with anything!

* Just about any soft drink ever manufactured has used this type of commercial (how any given drink ''tastes'' usually isn't brought up), hence the trope name. The most obvious example is 7-Up's slogan "It's Cool To Be Clear", which was accompanied by a mascot designed to be the epitome of cool (at least for TheNineties). Not to mention that Coca-Cola fancies itself as "The Real Thing," Pepsi expects you to name your ''entire generation'' after it, and Mountain Dew can apparently only be enjoyed by people who run around screaming while riding mountain bikes off cliffs. This is because there is ''absolutely nothing'' that makes one type of soda better than another; the only difference is taste and image. The New Coke debacle proved it's a bad idea to try changing the taste, image control is the biggest tool they have to fight over the consumer pie. An ''apparent'' exception is Sprite, sold for people who know better than to think a soft drink will make you cool. And who, therefore, must be ''[[TheManIsStickingItToTheMan really]]'' cool.
** OK Soda was Coca-Cola's attempt to reach the apathetic crowd. [[IncrediblyLamePun They Just Didn't Care]].

** It gets better - Creator/StephenColbert complained about Kraft dissing mayonnaise and tried to introduce his own counter-ad. Shortly thereafter, Miracle Whip bought ad time during Stephen's show and ran three ads with new narration [[TakeThat taunting Stephen by name.]]



* Zima happily abused this trope in the late [[TheNineties Nineties.]] Basically, it was just clear beer made by an American brewer, but commercials played it up as this ultimate imported stuff that people at the CoolestClubEver would let touch their lips exclusively. Unsurprisingly, it got a rep as being a drink for snooty hipsters too scared to drink hard alcohol and lost marketshare fast.

* Back in the day, Lucozade was marketed as a high-sugar restorative drink for invalids, suitable for those convalescing after surgery. During the 1980's, as the British people had long since come out of wartime restrictions and post-war austerity and simply didn't need excessive sugar to restore health, the flagging beverage was repackaged as a "sports drink" to enable athletes to pull that last bit of match-winning vitality out of exhaustion. Overnight a tonic for the sick became cool as a miracle drink for the super-fit and those who aspired to be super-fit. Nothing ''inside'' the rebranded bottles and cans changed, though.
