This isn’t exactly genre, but it’s got holographic dancing monkeys, an alien in a body bag, and someone in a flying suit:

This one from MetLife includes He-Man, Marvin the Martian, Atom Ant, The Jetsons, Richie Rich & Daphne in a limo (!), Optimus Prime, Mr. Peabody and his boy Sherman, and tons of other cartoon characters. But… Richie Rich and Daphne??

Toyota has this one for the Camry, complete with time-traveling baby, and a DMV that’s a complete fantasy:

Spot for Battleship:

UPDATE: And the spot for Transformers: The Ride, which was probably the template for Battleship‘s aesthetic…
