The new Jenny Craig commercial has one. They throw "Kirstie Alley" in the air, and she flips around.

I thought Wesley Snipes' stunt double in Blade was very obvious in the sword fighting scenes.

Is that one of the scenes they had to use a double since Snipes had a hangnail and locked himself in his trailer.

I immediately thought of this one.

"the long, lingering slo-mo shots of Joanna Cassidy's stuntwoman in a bad wig smashing through the glass in BLADE RUNNER."

This is one that I was going to comment on, but with a very early VHS tape release. I had an old tape of this movie, even older than the new (it was new way back then) VCR that I had bought, with a claim to fame of finely detailed pausing. Well, it was so fine that upon pausing 'she' was revealed to be a man with hairy legs and a wig. He looked like a football player. Very muscualar. It was downright hilarious and I couldn't believe it at the time. It wasn't the slo-mo part, of course; it was during the regular motion of the same scene.

In Wet Hot American Summer, there's a guy that gets on a motorcycle to ride back to camp. He immediately changes into a stuntman with a very bad bushy wig. I believe it was intentionally bad since the movie was a parody of all the teen summer camp movies.

That probably is the case. In the show "Stella," during the scene where they dance while wearing skunk tails, they make the stunt dancers so obvious, they had slo-mo closeups of them where you clearly see their faces.

Die Hard. The fight scene on the top floor undergoing construction. You can see the stuntman had more hair than Willis, especially where he's going through drywall.
