* Music/JayZ's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Revmkhxu7dk "Roc Boys (And the Winner Is)..." video]] is packed with famous faces, some predictable (Diddy, Roc-a-Fella artists [[ThoseTwoGuys Memphis Bleek, Beanie Sigel]], Jadakiss, Freeway, Tru Life, and Young Gunz), some unexpected ones (rapper Rick Ross, singers MariahCarey, and Cassie, rap producers Swizz Beatz, Just Blaze, The-Dream, DJ Clue, and Irv Gotti, and ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'' alum Yaya Dacosta), and a few downright surprising ones (former adversary {{Nas}}, ''Series/RockOfLove'' contestant Kristia Krueger, actors [[Series/ThatsSoRaven Drew Sidora]] and [[Series/BeverlyHills90210 Tristan Wilds]], athletes Zab Judah and Larry Johnson). Of this group, only Diddy and Cassie had a hand in creating the song. Ironically, the track's most famous contributors, Music/KanyeWest and background vocalist Music/{{Beyonce}}, are both absent.

* This trope is the Raison d'être of the {{Supergroup}}, which assembles a group of famous musicians (or members of famous bands) and draws in fans with the promise of awesomeness by amalgamation. A special mention needs to go to Music/TheTravelingWilburys, who assembled an utterly unbelievable amount of talent (to quote its own trope page," BobDylan. Music/RoyOrbison. Music/TomPetty. Music/GeorgeHarrison and [[Music/ElectricLightOrchestra Jeff Lynne]]. Holy Shit.")-- and then released the entire thing under a StageName, with no reference to who they really were, because they were doing it to have fun and work with each other.

** ''Film/ThorRagnarok'' is, arguably, building up the most impressive cast in the history of the MCU. Creator/ChrisHemsworth, Creator/TomHiddleston, Creator/MarkRuffalo, Creator/CateBlanchett, Creator/JeffGoldblum, Creator/AnthonyHopkins, Creator/IdrisElba, Creator/KarlUrban and Creator/TessaThompson. Hemsworth, Hiddleston, Ruffalo and Elba are all MCU mainstays and therefore big draws, Urban is a big name in the world of genre (fantasy, action) cinema, Thompson is one of the hottest up and coming actresses around, and Blanchett, Goldblum and Hopkins are bonafide Hollywood legends.
