* Used by the heroes in SequentialArt; most of the other party members have been drugged to sheer stupidity, so Art gets them to follow him by [[http://www.collectedcurios.com/sequentialart.php?s=860 offering a "prize"]]. Which is just a ruse.

* ''SpongeBobSquarepants'' uses a variation of the trope in one episode. Spongebob replacing his old spatula with a high-tech one, then crawls back to his old one after his new one declares it's too good for him. Spongebob even says "all that glitters is not gold". And the episode title is... * drumroll* All That Glitters.

Not everything that looks valuable on the surface is actually valuable. A bright facade on a house can conceal a rotting foundation. Makeup can conceal age and illness. A bright smile can hide deceit and hostility. Appearances can be deceiving.

Not everything that looks valuable on the surface is actually valuable. A bright glimmering facade on a house can conceal (whether metaphorical or literal) conceals a rotting foundation. Makeup can conceal conceals age and illness. A bright smile can hide deceit hides a life of suffering and hostility. Appearances sorrow.
