* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u_55lfSBKcE This]] commercial starts off innocent with cutesy art and a cutesy theme song, very much a homage to [[WesternAnimation/DragonTales another kids cartoon about dragons]]. Then CG dragons come in and burn EVERYTHING as the cartoon dragons and kids scream and flee in terror. For bonus points, [[SoundtrackDissonance the cutesy theme song keeps playing in the background.]] Ladies and Gentlemen, War Dragons.

* DudeNotFunny: An attempt at Black Comedy falls short on the "comedy" part and comes across as just offensive.

A joke might revolve around, for example, a homeless man committing a string of murders so that he will get sentenced to death, a state that, properly tied up in appeals, is ''better than'' his former life expectancy and quality. Delivered correctly, it can be very funny, yet at the same time more than a little disturbing. If done wrong, however, the audience may be extremely offended.
