I just saw the strangest thing on TV...
A commercial with a conlang in it.


it's a mcdonald's commercial:
it starts out with these two guys in a drive-up window.  one of them,
male, hears some non-English language coming from the drive-up window
speaker/microphone, and he's like "huh?" and then the other person, she
says something like "don't worry, i speak Atlantean!" and then she talks
in Atlantean, saying something like "hi, you said you'd like a ham and
cheese?", and then the commercial goes on...

-Stephen (Steg)
 "And even the name of that land perished, and Men spoke thereafter not
of... Numenore... but the exiles on the shores of the sea... spoke of
Mar-nu-Falmar that was whelmed in the waves, Akallabeth the Downfallen,
Atalante in the Eldarin tongue."
     ~ Akallabeth, by JRR Tolkien
