* In ''FanFic/TheLoneTraveler'' this is pretty much the only way to get [[Literature/HarryPotter Potter-verse]] pureblood bigots to accept Muggle tech. Tell them that whatever it is they're so uptight about is completely magical and so much better than anything the Muggles could come up with, they'd bow down to the awesome wizards just for a chance just to look at it. Even if the items in question are stainless steel lab benches, safety goggles, or lab coats.

** This is a fairly standard way of explaining away inventory discrepancies in many militaries around the world. For years after the Falklands War, for example, any missing equipment in the British Army was explained as having ‘gone down on the Atlantic Conveyor’.

* The Walt Disney Family Film Collection promo that appears on 1995 pressings of the nine general release [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6VYutUpvaU Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection]] films falsely claims Film/OldYeller is heartwarming, when the [[AllThereIsToKnowAboutTheCryingGame ending]] [[ItWasHisSled is]] [[ShootTheDog anything]] [[TearJerker but]].

* ''WebAnimation/GreenyPhatom'' is filled to the brim with examples of this made by Robert Stainton, the creator of the show:
** For starters, Robert Stainton claims that ''Greeny Phatom'' is a TV show. It never aired on TV; it appeared on the Internet post-2009. It's unlikely that TV stations would ever air a show that's literally made in MS Paint anyway.
** He claims that it's made by the companies Sony Wonder, Cinar, and Children's Television Workshop, which is an unlikely combination of companies working on the same show together...[[note]]A TV show ''made'' by Sony Wonder is actually impossible, since they're a distribution company. They did distribute a few shows, however, most of which were produced by Creator/SunbowEntertainment, which Sony Wonder owned from 1998 to 2000.[[/note]] and that's not even mentioning that the end credits of the Greeny Phatom [[TheMovie movie]] state that Creator/KlaskyCsupo and Creator/{{Paramount}} produced it with them. The end credits also state that Creator/{{Disney}} distributes the film's soundtrack. Good luck finding any actual works that are co-produced by all six of those companies.

* Hiding the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trinity_(nuclear_test) Trinity nuclear-bomb test]] was clearly going to be a bit tricky; as an Army security officer put it, "you might as well try to hide the Mississippi River". Nevertheless, they tried:
--> Several inquiries have been received concerning a heavy explosion which occurred on the Alamogordo Air Base reservation this morning. A remotely located ammunition magazine containing a considerable amount of high explosives and pyrotechnics exploded. There was no loss of life or injury to anyone, and the property damage outside of the explosives magazine was negligible.

** ''ComicBook/SupergirlCosmicAdventuresInTheEightGrade'': Kara tells Superman that her parents chained her to a rocket and banished her to Earth because she asked her mother politely and respectfully if she could pass the salt. His disapproving frown and folded arms indicated clearly that he wasn't buying it.

* Creator/StevenSeagal is infamous for this. He's claimed to be [[MilesGloriosus a former CIA Black Ops operative]], some kind of [[PhysicalGod reborn Buhddist diety]], a coach for several elite [[UsefulNotes/MixedMartialArts MMA fighters,]] a Cop, a student of Morihei Ueshiba and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking an Italian.]] Despite these macho-man credentials, Steven for some reason can't be bothered to say in shape and nowadays he has to be the flabbiest star in the Action genre.
