* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', Zazu starts to sing "It's A Small World." Scar freaks out and demands him to sing [[AnythingButThat anything else but that]]. [[Theatre/TheLionKing The stage musical]] uses "Be Our Guest". It doubles as a MythologyGag, since "Be Our Guest" was from [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the first Disney animated film that became a musical and paved the way for Lion King to come on Broadway]]. When ''Beauty and the Beast'' closed, it got replaced with [[Film/MaryPoppins "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."]] In later runs, it was replaced with [[Disney/Frozen "Let It Go".]]

* Strong Bad does this quite often towards TelltaleGames in ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople'' and its making-of mockumentary ''Behind The Bad'' (and eventually carried over in ''VideoGame/PokerNightAtTheInventory''), usually complaining about how they never follow his idea of the "perfect" Strong Bad video game. This, however, is subverted near the end of "8-Bit Is Enough" when the developers [[ThrowTheDogABone finally made an albeit lo-res polygon render of a concept sketch from Strong Bad for the episode's final battle]], [[HellYesMoment and Strong Bad couldn't be more happy about it.]]
