Commercials with unintended messages

Inspired by Boyo Jim's post about unintended symbology...

I have a personal game of watching for unintended but clear messages in TV commercials.

Favorite example: a whole series of commercials in support of Frosted Mini Wheats cereal. All of them feature an avid customer of Mini Wheats, who hallucinates that they have the assistance of a small animated, living piece of the cereal itself, standing on their shoulder, helping them to cheat on tests, or otherwise perform above the level they would have, had they failed to eat this apparently drug-laden product each morning.
