* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In "Make New Friends but Keep Discord", Discord starts doing stand-up comedy at the Grand Galloping Gala in an attempt to impress ponies, but he can't get anyone to respond to his attempt to start a KnockKnockJoke.
-->'''Discord:''' You're supposed to say "Who's there?"! This the most basic of jokes!\\
'''[[TheComicallySerious Maud Pie]]''': [[NoYou YOU'RE the most basic of jokes]].

* British folk singer/comedian Richard Digance was trying to rehearse his audience in the chorus of his song "Poor Jane" ("Poor, poor Jane/Poor, poor Jane"). Frustrated at their [[BritishStuffiness reticence]] ("There are only three words and two of them are the same!"), he strummed his guitar once and sang "[[BohemianRhapsody Mama...]]" and gestured to the audience to continue.

** Intentionally incorrect chants are worse, and indicate an angry audience. Chanting for a popular but not present wrestler is bad, deceased wrestlers are worse, the announce team is worse than that, and then there's chanting for a ''different promotion'' (such as "T-N-A" at a WWE event). [[EpicFail There's even been chants for something completely unrelated to wrestling, such as Taber Corn and the ice cream man]].

* The Creator/RoyalShakespeareCompany's 2000 production of ''Theatre/RichardIII'' brought the house lights up during the scene when Buckingham manipulates the crowd into proclaiming Richard king, and Buckingham tried to lead the audience in a cheer of "Long live Richard, England's royal king!" The audience invariably didn't bite -- at least, the audience ''in Stratford'' didn't. (The audience on the U.S. tour responded with great enthusiasm.)

Added DiffLines:

* Caused by a form of BilingualBackfire in ''O Canada'', the Canadian National Anthem. There's an English Version, and there's a French Version, and quite often at events, the two are blended. Problem is, less than 20% of Canadians speak both languages, so (at least in western provinces), the crowd will merrily sing to the English words, and go completely silent at the French part or vice versa. Those that speak both langauges know that the two versions are completely different and ''still'' don't make sense.

* In ''Film/{{Ghostbusters}} II'' Ray and Winston make an appearance at a birthday party, but the kids are less than enthused. When they try to get them to respond to the "WhoYouGonnaCall" part of their theme song, the kids just yell "He-Man!"

Added DiffLines:

* Music/PaulAndStorm invoke this during 'The Irish Sing-Along Song' with a section of the chorus being completely unintelligible. When the audience reaches the last part, they'll stop the song and tease the audience for screwing it up.
-->'''Audience:''' Something something something something, la-da da-da dah / La da-da dee-dee da-da something something la-da dah/ [Unintelligible]
-->'''Paul:''' No. Stop. Let's break it down.

* In the third case of the video game ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice For All'', the fact that the magician defendant was seen at the scene of the crime with his three trademark symbols is used against him. When Phoenix presses this point, the first witness and the entire gallery shout them out in unison. "SILK HAT! CLOAK! WHITE ROSES!" The next witness, a clown, gets the same opportunity during his cross-examination, and he leads the gallery into it. No one does it. He gets depressed.
