It's TvTropes to the rescue again, where they decided to call the technique Mundane Made Awesome and present a few billion examples from movies, TV, advertising and other media. Edgar Wright's films get a mention, of course, as they are particularly rife with the specific example you've mentioned: parodies of tooling-up montages (Tropes calls it Lock and Load), where mundane activities are accompanied by close ups, ramped up action and loud music. Da Ali G Show uses similar devices in its intro [Warning: Sacha Butt].
Also mentioned in the Tropes page are bits like the opening bowling sequence in Big Lebowski, the title sequence of Dexter and one of my favorites, the epic Xander-Harmony slap fight in BtVS (though I can't seem to find another favorite there: The Crimson Permanent Assurance). But it's impossible to name all the examples, so... Enjoy wasting a week on them. :)
