* One of Shelley's [[http://scarygoround.com/index.php?date=20090217 plans to rescue Des from his hosts]] on a UsefulNotes/{{council estate}} in ''Webcomic/ScaryGoRound'' is "Enlist Bjork!" (With a picture showing Shelley giving the Icelandic musician a pistol.) It makes as much sense as [[{{Cloudcuckoolander}} her other ideas]], but, (un)fortunately, she doesn't know {{Bjork}}.

* The final episode of ''[[WesternAnimation/GodTheDevilAndBob God, the Devil, & Bob]]'' ends with the Devil nearly causing a riot at a performance of ''[[Theatre/ArsenicAndOldLace Arsenic & Old Lace]]'' as the citizens of Detroit clash over censorship versus free speech, but the two sides' animosity is destroyed by the inexplicable arrival of... Creator/KevinBacon, who convinces everyone to dance. To that song from ''Film/{{Footloose}}''. Everyone is friends again and have fun. The Devil laments to his henchman Smeck, "Kevin Bacon again! I create one little party game, and now he won't leave me alone!"
* ''WesternAnimation/{{Family Guy}}'' had an episode where newsman Hugh Downs (doing his own voice) shows up to rescue Meg and the local geek from a hostage situation. At the end of the scene, he flies away, a la Superman.

* The ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' boys are contacted by Creator/BarbraStreisand, who transforms into... [[HumongousMecha Mecha Streisand]]. She is opposed by Creator/LeonardMaltin, Creator/SidneyPoitier, and [[TheCure Robert Smith]], all of whom transform into one kind of {{Kaiju}} or another.

The characters of a work are in some kind of a crisis, and simply need help. Thankfully, they bump into a friendly celebrity. No, the work is not LikeRealityUnlessNoted - they could very well be [[SpongebobSquarepants diminutive talking sea creatures who meet David Hasselhoff on the beach]]. And it's more than that -- the celebrity is ''very'' unlike reality. In fact, they have super-powers. Why? Because they're a celebrity.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'' is one tremendous deconstruction. Its overarching theme is how fans worshipping celebrities hurt themselves and society.

* Music/TheBeatles in ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'', because "it's all in the mind." Some of JohnLennon's are blatantly plot-critical, but everyone has something important -- even if it's just MagicMusic. GeorgeHarrison uses much of his for MundaneUtility...
