Somebody put a flyer in my car last weekend and I was surprised to see my car on it.
Amusing Story: My friend Pete saw himself on a Toyota commercial, bungee jumping off a bridge. His group of friends (with whom he was jumping) videotaped his jump, and also coincidentally taped a lone videographer that was taping Pete jumping. (In other words, they had the guy on tape who was taping Pete without his knowledge.)

After seeing the commercial, Pete called Toyota to complain, who referred him to the ad agency, who referred him to the commercial video library where people post footage for licensed usage. Those people gave Pete the name of the individual who submitted the videotape of Pete jumping without Pete's permission.

For using Pete's image without his permission, the videographer handed over the $1500 he earned for licensing the use of Pete's jump in the commerical.
