* Justin Moore's "Small Town USA" had such an edit in the song's second chorus, where the line "Music/DavidAllanCoe and a six-pack of Lite" is replaced with the name of the station playing the song.

** On MusicMarilynManson's only live album, ''The Last Tour on Earth'', the recording of "The Dope Show" was done in Cleveland, leading to the line "The drugs, they say, are made in California" to be changed to "The drugs, they say, are made right here in Cleveland" leading to the predictable pop.

* {{Seanbaby}} once did an article on John Kerry's [[TheComicallySerious [staggering lack of a]]] sense of humor by noting that one entry in his Letterman Top Ten list included no joke other than name-dropping Sammy Sosa. Seanbaby identifies as one of those crowd-pleasing subjects that gets a big reaction with no punchline, and adds that if Sosa were having a bad season, the gag could have easily been replaced with: "Anyone here from NEW YORK!?"

* Sucio Dutch Mantel claims to be the first wrestler from the Forty Eight States who went to Puerto Rico and talked trash about the island. Whether him being ''first'' is true or not, what can be confirmed is that he couldn't walk on the streets without being pelted with rocks, cups and sparks during his first WWC run.

** TaylorSwift's "Tim [=McGraw=]" had some edits where "Someday you'll turn your radio on" in the final chorus became "Someday you'll turn [name of station] on". Similarly, for play on the countdown show ''Radio/BobKingsleysCountryTop40'', it became "And turn the Bob Kingsley countdown on".

*** In a related example, some stations snip in a sound clip of ShaniaTwain saying the name of a popular DJ on the station over "Brad Pitt" on the radio edit of "That Don't Impress Me Much". Dismissing some radio DJ in Nowheresville, USA is much less effective in the song than, say, a millionaire actor.

** Terri Clark's 2003 hit "I Wanna Do It All" had edits that replaced the line "See the Yankees play ball" with a local baseball or football team. An edit also existed for the syndicated show ''ZMAX Racing Country'' which swapped out some lyrics to name-drop its hosts Paul Schadt and Cathy Martindale or make {{Shout Out}}s to racing venues.

** One episode had a guest appearance from BobHope. He asks the Mayor's name right before going on stage just so he can insert it into a stock joke: "How about that Mayor Quimby? His golf ball spends more time underwater than Greg Louganis."

* Wrestling/JeffJarrett had a great one at a show in Melbourne, Australia. After spending a while doing the usual heel ragging on the country, he announced "But there's one good thing about Australia - I've found a sport here that I love. It's called Rugby League!" (For the uninformed, Melbourne is the traditional home of AustralianRulesFootball, and has a big rivalry with Sydney, traditional home of RugbyLeague).

* In Wrestling/{{Progress Wrestling}} there's Zack Gibson, he's from Liverpool, and Progress mainly do shows in London so his gimmick is that he's a Liverpool FC fan, and he's a huge heat magnet because of it. It comes across as him being a ForeignWrestlingHeel despite living and being born in the same country the promotion is active in.

* Sometimes using a specific ''move'' in the right place can gain cheap heat or pop. Trish Stratus' final match in her home-town of Toronto Canada (against Lita) had arguably the biggest ever pop for a women's match when she finished by using Bret Hart's signature Sharpshooter to win the title.

** If John Cena were in the dark match to "send the crowd home happy", he would often add some cheap heat in the form of thanking the crowd for their support, singing "Rocky Top" with the Tennessee crowd to piss off Michael Cole, etc. and so forth...

** Wrestling/OwenHart wearing the jersey of the (theoretically) hated Toronto Argonauts at the 1998 ''[=Breakdown=]'' show in Hamilton, Ontario. Unfortunately, since most of the crowd had driven down from Toronto, that just made Owen even more beloved than he already was.

* An example of how cheap heat attempts can still fail if you don't read the crowd right. 2008 House show in the Quad Cities for TNA featured 'Sheik Abdul Bashir' coming out with a rant at the audience, as well as two campaign signs: one for John [=McCain=], one for UsefulNotes/BarackObama (this was during the general campaign). He seemed to be trying to get the crowd to react, but was using..something foreign-sounding. He went to the back, came out with the advised shit-eating grin, and was showing off the [=McCain=] campaign sign. The crowd (half of which probably is from ''Illinois'', and the other half's in a reasonably Democratic part of Iowa) lustily boos. He then..attacks/defaces/tears up the ad. Crowd cheers him well into his match. Oops..

* The ultimate heel move ever was done by Wrestling/SantinoMarella a little more than a year ago when he claimed that he had finally found a new favorite basketball team and removed his shirt to unveil an Oklahoma City Thunder jersey....in Seattle, whose beloved Sonics had been moved to OKC and became the Thunder. Those who didn't boo lustily seemed to have had the air taken out of them, as it was as TooSoon a moment as there ever could be.

* The Royal Rumble has its own form of Cheap Heat. A common tactic is to bring out a fan favourite wrestler from the past as a surprise entrant. The crowd goes mental for them. Whoever eliminates that wrestler from the Rumble gets instant boos and is set up as a heel you want to see eliminated from the match.
