* In ''ComicBook/{{Marvel 1602}}'', [[Comicbook/SpiderMan Peter Parquagh]] tells [[Comicbook/NickFury Sir Nicholas Fury]] that he's unaware of previous events in that timeline, because, as he justifies it in his own words, "I wasn't born yet". [[SomeAnvilsNeedToBeDropped Fury responds by telling him the importance of knowing about history.]]

* A [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=us0HMWVPv_M Kraft Macaroni and Cheese advertisement]] tie-in for ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles2014'' has Music/VanillaIce rapping the "Go Ninja Go" song from ''Film/TeenageMutantNinjaTurtles II''. A mother and her son overhear him. The mother starts dancing with Vanilla Ice however the child is annoyed, likely from a combination of not understanding the reference and being [[AmazinglyEmbarrassingParents embarrassed by his mother]].

The opposite is often true of people - and especially young people - in fiction. Barring special circumstances, characters will be limited in knowledge of movies, music, politics etc. to things occurring after their birth. In some cases, the ignorance extends to some time after they reached high school.

* In ''ComicStrip/TheBoondocks'' the Freemans' neighbor asks Huey whether he's named after Music/{{Huey Lewis|AndTheNews}}, and Huey actually responds, "Before my time." The subversion comes in the fact that Huey has just given an erudite lecture on Black Panther Huey Newton. He may just be baiting the poor guy.
* Inverted possibly to excess in ''ComicStrip/NineChickweedLane''. The post-adolescent characters frequently speak in pulp detective slang and reference old movies like ''Film/{{Casablanca}}'', but seldom talk about contemporary culture. Of course, Juilliard arts majors can be a little eccentric.

* In ''Wolf in Shadow'' Franky often makes literary references that the younger Rhian does not understand. This causes Frankie to bemoan the state of the British education system. Subverted later when Rhian fails to understand a Shakespeare reference but it turns out that she was just joking and points out that the education system is no that bad ''yet''.

* The "after my time" inversion was used in those exact words on ''Series/{{Lost}}'' when Locke doesn't recognize Sawyer's reference to ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen''. Since Locke is actually [[spoiler:the Smoke Monster, who's been on the Island for centuries]] it kind of is.

* A column in ''Magazine/DoctorWhoMagazine'' describes a hilarious inversion; a woman who insists to a party full of DWM columnists, UniverseCompendium writers and obsessive fans that her completely erroneous version of early ''Series/DoctorWho'' is correct, brushing off all aguments with "You weren't even born, dear."

* On ''Series/{{House}}'', the title character is making one of his trademark analogies to Thirteen, in this case referencing ''AlteredStates''. She tries to shut him down by saying the movie came out before she was even born. Which apparently prevents her not only from having seen the movie, but also from understanding anything he says about it.
