Examples of Growling Gut include:


Hunger

Advertising

  • This happens to a teenage boy on a 2000 commercial for Tombstone Pizza. His stomach growls while he’s hiding in his girlfriend’s closet from her father, and the growl caused him to get caught.
  • This happens in quite a few commercials for Special K Cereal: a woman will try to skip breakfast, only for her growling stomach to make her reconsider.
  • This happened in a 1995 McDonald's commercia
    • Another McDonald's commercial has this happen to a young girl whose stomach growls loudly during a test.
  • A restaurant called Bojangles has a series of commercials featuring this trope, in which important events are interrupted by a growling stomach and the character's pronouncement that 'It's Bo-time!'
  • An old commercial for Chef Boyardee ravioli has a boy's stomach growling louder and louder as he rides his bike home from school.
    • A similar commercial shows a boy's stomach constantly growling in anticipation of the ravioli he'll be eating at home. His belly is so loud that it can be heard all across his school.
    • And then there's a set of commercials that show an angry young boy/girl (depending on the ad) marching into their homes with their stomachs roaring for food, only to become a lot happier when they're fed Chef Boyardee. Seems to be a recurring thing in these commercials.
  • There's a 1997 commercial for Austin Crackers which features a boy who's stomach is growling like crazy. The growls are indicated by a lion inside of him.
  • In a late 90's Slim Jim commercial, a girl takes a bite out of a Slim Jim, but Slim Jim Man is not pleased with what else she has eaten and starts throwing stuff around. From the outside, the ruckus causes the girl's stomach to grumble.
  • This happens in a few Snickers commercials in the 80's.
  • There is a commercial for KFC where a dog gets confused by the growls from his owner's stomach and responds by growling and barking back at it.
  • There's several Lunchables commercials where a kid's stomach rumbles loudly and violently enough to have an earthquake-like effect on the kid's surroundings.
  • In the beginning of a Toy Story 4-theme Babybel commercial, Bonnie's stomach growls due to hunger.
  • There's a commercial for Buddig lunchmeat that has two hungry guys' stomachs literally talk to each other by growling.
  • One Dunkin Donuts commercial has customers at a hardware store confused by a loud roaring playing over the speakers. It turns out to be coming from the stomach of a man salivating over his co-worker's breakfast, unaware that he has a mic pressed to his empty belly.
  • A few commercials for ENO Halia star men with bloated bellies that are growling and roaring due to gas. The noisiness and size of their stomachs tend to freak out the people around them, until they drink the product which immediately calms their guts down.
  • There's a series of ads for Google translate showing off noises that it can't translate, with one example being the rumbling of a man's hungry belly.
