* Much of the beginning of ''Film/StepBrothers'', where Creator/WillFerrell and Creator/JohnCReilly play a pair of middle-aged {{Man Child}}ren. Particularly the moment where they burst into their parents' bedroom and ask for permission to build a bunk bed.

* ''Film/{{Birdman}}'' has a real gem: Rigg Thompson (MichaelKeaton) having to walk around an entire city block in nothing but his [[StockUnderwear white underpants]] because [[NakedPeopleTrappedOutside he got locked out of the theater's back door and his bathrobe got stuck in the doorway]]. And that block happens to back right up to Times Square at its busiest hour. [[FromBadToWorse And somebody records the Times Square part on a videophone.]] [[OhCrap And posts it.]] ''And'' it trends immediately.

''Series/EverybodyLovesRaymond'' dabbled in this from time to time, like in the episode where Ray sat with his daughter on the school bus, and in another where Marie faxed a letter to someone interviewing Robert for a job. The crowning example though, is the episode "The Faux Pas," where Ray accidentally embarrasses a young boy, by unintentionally insulting his father's occupation. The family's attempts to fix the problem, only result in the situation only get worse and more humiliating.

* Quite a bit of the humour of ''Series/PleaseLikeMe'' comes from people (usually Josh) being unintentionally insensitive or getting into embarrassing situations because of their bad choices.

** [[Recap/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagicS6E7NewbieDash "Newbie Dash"]] is full of this. First, Rainbow Dash makes a bad first impression on her first day as an official member of the Wonderbolts, earning her the EmbarrassingNickname "Rainbow Crash". Then she goes through increasingly awkward attempts to erase that bad first impression.

** "The Hug", especially when Gumball tries to get away from the Hot Dog Guy during their sleepover.

to:

** The entirety of "The Hug", especially in which Gumball hugs a complete stranger at school, Hot Dog Guy, just to be unpredictable. They keep meeting each other afterwards and neither of them have any idea how to react to each other. Special mention goes to the scene when Gumball tries to get away from the Hot Dog Guy during their sleepover.sleepover in the tent.
*** In the aptly-named SequelEpisode, "The Awkwardness", Gumball runs into Hot Dog Guy again when both of them are on the way to the store and their memories of "The Hug" come flooding right back.
