** In "Homer Alone", one of the things that stresses out Marge at the beginning is hearing KBBL's Bill and Marty prank-calling a man and telling him that his wife died.

** As the series progressed, nobody seemed to realise that all sorts of improbable things that involved their cars being destroyed could possibly be prank. Hilariously, someone wised up and, when the parking lot she was in was somehow replaced with a showroom of cars identical to hers said, without missing a beat, "Is this Beadle's About?"

These types of pranks are popular enough that in fictional media, {{Muggles}} [[AllPartOfTheShow may assume]] that they're a part of an elaborate CandidCameraPrank when met with something fantastic.

* ''WesternAnimation/CreatureComforts'' (both versions) was a weird sort of CandidCameraPrank in that the victims knew it was happening - they were told at the time that they were being recorded for a TV show. Where the prank comes in was that neither character designers nor animators ever met the people being recorded. They wanted them to base appearance and performance on voice alone, so they were isolated from the process of recording so they wouldn't get any preconceived notions before setting to work. So there was an even chance you'd either be surprised to find out just how owlish you were, or offended that someone equated you with a gorilla. Thank God for anonymity, eh fellas?

* ''{{Scrubs}}'' used this in an ImagineSpot on one occasion - after guiding a couple through a difficult and important medical decision, JD wishes that life were more like his favourite TV shows - cue the unconscious wife sitting up and saying 'you're on candid camera' and JD and Cox pointing cameras out, including one guy with a big shoulder-mounted camera hiding under the bed...

* [[DoubleSubversion Double subverted]] on ''ABitOfFryAndLaurie'' in the sketch where Fry plays a rich bastard senselessly abusing Laurie's beggar character. Laurie eventually claims to be the star of a ''Beadle's About''-type show, and Fry changes his tune and starts looking around for the cameras, asking if Laurie is really a TV star, and Laurie replies, "No. But I might have been."

* In ''Webcomic/GrrlPower'', the engineer Omar makes a habit of occasionally dropping remarks that will draw screams of outrage from Maxima, and then [[http://grrlpowercomic.com/archives/1886 snapping a picture of the rage-face and adding it to his "Anger Album".]]

Added namespaces.
* ''TheChasersWarOnEverything'' also does both ordinary people and celebrities. The celebrity targets are often politicians, and the pranks are more satirical than most other shows - most famously, getting into the security zone around the APEC conference thinly disguised as a Canadian motorcade[[note]]For more info on this stunt, see BavarianFireDrill.[[/note]].
