* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OwcR40Iews This commercial]] for the game H.E.D.Z has a guy who appears to play sports [[LosingYourHead take off his head]] and then place the heads of various characters in the game on his body, though it is somewhat subverted due to the guy's head being left detached instead of being placed on another body. Also the commercial is somewhat misleading due to the game itself being more about aliens wearing masks that [[WasOnceAMan were once people/animals]] than actual head swapping.
