* {{Seanbaby}} once did an article on John Kerry's [[CannotTellAJoke (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!?"

* Giving out cheap pops is the gimmick of Home Town Huck of Creator/{{Nickelodeon}}'s ''Thumb Wrestleing Entertainment''. He gives pops to a bunch or random towns whenever he performs, and is generally considered the hero of the Dexteras.

* Cheap pop was taken close to its logical conclusion in the Pure Wrestling Association where [[Wrestling/LondonAndKendrick Brian Kendrick and especially Paul London]] went ''well'' out of their way to hive five as many people as possible before their matches, going through bleachers and even up stairs to the various balconies.

* In addition to high fives, Josie once resorted to letting a fan slap her butt for a cheap pop in United States Championship Wrestling, leading a crowd that was initially tepid towards her to eventually cheer for Josie over [[DracoInLeatherPants popular heel]] Wrestling/MsChif.

** Several songs, such as "The Heart of Rock & Roll" by HueyLewis and "You and I" by Music/LadyGaga have the state/nearest big city clumsily added into key parts of the song ("You and I" refers to a specific person from Nebraska. Needless to say, bungled edits like "My cool N-Rhode Island-a guy!" kind of ruin parts of the song, especially in terms of meter) on Top 40 radio for cheap pops. Fans dislike them, but the radio station seem to have fun making them.

* 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.

** "We were driving down ''ROUTE 401!!''"
* ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' has Tiger Millionaire who is a parody of this trope.

* 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."
