* A lot of people today embrace the inverse: if someone from Hollywood said it, it must be bullshit. That is equally fallacious.

* This accusation is often leveled at any celebrity who endorses a politician during election season. A lot of people today embrace the inverse: if someone from Hollywood said it, it must be bullshit. That is equally fallacious.

** This fallacy extends deep into human psychology. Scientific studies have shown that if people are given two different glasses of wine, but told that one is far more expensive than than the other, they will [[ExpensiveGlassOfCrap tend to describe the "more expensive" wine as better]]. Moreover, if you have the people connected to brain scans while doing the experiment, different parts of their brain will light up for the two different glasses, despite the wines being identical.

* ReeferMadnessTheMusical gives us a one-two punch of AppealToAuthority and AppealToWealth. A sadistic propagandist is challenged about his absurd claims about marijuana by one of the parents watching the [[ShowWithinAShow film within a film]] about marijuana's "evils." The propagandist points out that his view is supported by Mr. William Randolph Hearst, who is both very wealthy and matriculated to Harvard. He then scores a hat trick by throwing in the AdHominem by pointing out the parent never went to college and does not know the word matriculate, then dismissing the parent out of hand. Finally, for the grand slam, he throws in an AppealToFear with another personal attack, suggesting the parent is unAmerican and that the others should report his behavior, especially in light of his "views."
