** [[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 modern {{WWE}} is ''built'' on this trope. It would be hard to find a single episode that doesn't mine public humiliation, sociopolitical hypocrisy, or outright batty extremism for all the humor they're worth. People being forced to kiss naked butts, people getting [[CoveredInGunge covered with peepee or poop]], cross-dressing, paraphilias, outright blasphemy (more wrestlers than one could count have [[BlasphemousBoast explicitly compared themselves to God]]), acts of assault that would land real people in the slammer for decades, promos that are so over-the-top ridiculous that you look forward to them week after week, and generally truckloads of childish and/or insane behavior [[CityOfWeirdos played out as if it were the most natural thing in the world]]. Not for nothing is pro wrestling considered the post-WWII version of the circus.

* The MLP fan video ''WebOriginal/ElementsOfCringe'' obviously has its moments. Like Twilight trying to blast her way out of a glass box, only for it to ricochet and knock her out.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.
