*WesternAnimation/BarbieAFashionFairytale: Sort of, in the overture scene. This movie was one of the first Barbie movies with modern setting and themes, and no inspiration from fairy tales anymore. Because, certainly, [[ExecutiveMeddling it was required from Mattel]]. Judging from Barbie's argument with the movie director, [[WriterRevolt the writers were not too happy about it.]] Thus the obnoxious director distort the story of a fairy tale because of "fashionable" elements and refuse dialogue to the point of firing Barbie, while the latter tries in vain to calmly explain that the really cool tale is going to be lost.

** Mabel's first glimpse of high school in "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" comes across as a huge TakeThat to the channel's most iconic franchise, ''Film/HighSchoolMusical.'' --> '''Mabel:''' Why aren't they singing about following their dreams? TV taught me that high school was like some sort of ''musical.'' --> '''Wendy:''' TV lied, man.

* Music/RageAgainstTheMachine's contribution to ''[[Film/{{Godzilla1998}} Godzilla: The Album]]'' the soundtrack of the 1998 remake of ''Film/{{Godzilla|1998}}'' was the song "No Shelter", a four-minute ProtestSong about how Hollywood supports the spread of consumerist values and [[AmericaTakesOverTheWorld American hegemony]] worldwide. It includes a direct TakeThat at the film it's supposed to be promoting, in the form of the line "Godzilla, pure motherfucking filler, to keep ya eyes off the real killer".killer". And just to drive the point home, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6NEoesmnYU4 the video]] makes reference to, among other things, the Hiroshima bombing -- the event that [[Film/{{Gojira}} the original film]] was a commentary on (commentary that was, [[LowestCommonDenominator of course]], scrubbed from the remake).

*** Oddly enough, WordOfGod claimed it was pulled not because of this trope, but because the creators simply thought it wasn't funny and needed room for commercials in re-airings.

* The 2011 episode of ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' with guest host Music/MileyCyrus had a sketch called "[[http://www.hulu.com/watch/221674 Disney Channel Acting School]]," where Miley (dressed in an exaggerated Series/HannahMontana costume and poofy hair) and Creator/RavenSymone (played by [[Series/KenanAndKel Kenan Thompson]]) host an infomercial for the school. The sketch parodies the writing, wardrobe and comedic devices Creator/DisneyChannel {{Kid Com}}s such as ''Hannah Montana'', ''Series/ThatsSoRaven'' and ''Series/WizardsOfWaverlyPlace'' use regularly.
