Movies that open with a fake commercial

Besides M3GAN, are there any other movies that begin with a fake commercial?

The only other one I can think of is Robocop 2

I don't know if it would count, but David Cronenberg's Shivers (a.k.a. They Came from Within) starts with a narrated slide-based sales presentation for Starliner Towers, the setting of the film.

Grindhouse had a fake trailer before the first feature, and three more between the two films.
