In the Monsters, Inc. films, there is a running gag that occurs throughout both movies. Basically, the running gag is the character of Mike Wazowski being photographed or filmed, but having his face covered.

The first time this happens is near the beginning of the movie when Mike and Sulley watch their commercial on TV in which Mike gets covered by the Monsters, Inc. logo.

The second time this happens is near the end of the movie when Mike and Sulley are on a magazine cover and Mike is covered by the bar code.

"I'm on the cover of a magazine!"
"I'm on the cover of a magazine!"

And even in the film's prequel, Mike is photographed for his ID, and I think you can guess what happened.

But it turns out that some manufacturers/business owners or whomever have actually slipped this running gag in real life. For example, on a cereal box:

"I'm on the cover of a cereal box!"
"I'm on the cover of a cereal box!"

The collector's edition of the Monsters, Inc. DVD:

"I'm on the cover of a DVD!"
"I'm on the cover of a DVD!"

The Disney Infinity figures:

The actual figure of Mike is covered.
The actual figure of Mike is covered.

Even the f****** sugar cookies.

"I'm on the cover of a box of sugar cookies!"
"I'm on the cover of a box of sugar cookies!"

Poor Mike.

And that's it!
