* Then, one of those live performances was then used in ''VideoGame/GuitarHero 4'', so a whole new generation of kids could get the lyric wrong. (The correct, studio version is in RockBand now, but as DLC).

** And again on the ascended mondegreen meme (although inintentional), Music/{{Clutch}}'s The Regulator has a its opening line "I see a lantern burning" oft-misheard by fans as "I see Atlanta burning." To the point that one of the reasons ''Series/TheWalkingDead'' producers (the show it based in Atlanta) used it as a credits closing song in an episode was THEY heard it wrong, too.

* In ''Film/TheExpendables2'', several ChuckNorris jokes -- and the general [[MemeticBadass meme]] of Norris as the toughest man in the world -- are repurposed to refer to the character played by Norris.

** ChuckNorris' MemeticBadass status was immortalized in a "What's your game?" television ad which states that VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft has over ten million players...''because Chuck Norris allows them to live!''

* If you watch TV late at night, you can see the ordinary VinceOffer Slap Chop commercial has been replaced by [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UWRyj5cHIQA this wonderful gem,]] though, presumably due to rights issues, the bits from ''Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo'' are sadly replaced with some new footage of break-dancers.

* The Head On headache medicine. The original commercial's repitition of the slogan (Head On! Apply directly to the forehead!) in the commercials annoyed enough people that complaining about it/making fun of became a thing. Cue a year or so later, they had incorporated making fun of the original commercial's reputation for being irritating into the new version.

* The Tails Doll from the ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' fandom seems to be shaping into this. Originally a one-shot playable villain in ''VideoGame/SonicR'', the fans turned him into the subject of countless {{Creepypasta}}s. The devs then released a rather... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gXsGsALkOeU dark remix of Tails Doll's theme song]], and the Archie Comics series ended up turning Tails Doll into a bona fide EldritchAbomination.

* In ''VideoGame/TheSims'', people found the VideoGameCrueltyPotential amusing, and the fact that Sims could be killed off in improbable ways (like drowning because they couldn't climb out of a pool with no ladder) became something the game was known for. In ''The Sims 2'', pre-made character Brandi Broke lost her husband in "a suspicious pool-ladder accident."

** Many jokes exist about the move "Fly" and "Surf" and how the protagonist can apparently ride very small Pokemon. For the 20th anniversary of the series a ton of official art of the protagonists was made. A few feature them riding tiny Pokemon.

* Wrestling/CMPunk, during his feud with Wrestling/VinceMcMahon in 2011, grabbed a headset during a brawl with Vince and screamed "WHAT A MANEUVER!" before driving Vince's face into the announce table in reference to Vince's infamous style of commentary from the [=90s=].



* In 2012, Taeler Hendrix shed her jackets for more elaborate ring gear, started dying her hair a more vibrant shade of red and took on a much more manipulative, seductive demeanor leading fans to compare her to Tiara from ''Anime/ShamanicPrincess'' or ''Comicbook/PoisonIvy'' from Batman. "Poison Princess" eventually became her official RedBaron in The House Of Truth and Ring Of Honor.
