* There's no shortage of horror stories in which kids, who [[NoSocialSkills often completely lack a filter for any of their words or deeds]], embarrass the living hell out of their parents. Of course, there is now a good portion of the Internet devoted to exchanging these stories, such as [[http://www.circleofmoms.com/question/whats-most-embarrassing-thing-your-child-has-done-public-1702053 this forum]].

* ''[[OpieAndAnthony The Opie & Anthony Show]]'': Everything from stomping on a homeless man's cake to playing laugh tracks behind a caller mentioning the death of a relative. They even embraced the term "Cringe Radio" for their type of show.

* ''Film/AmericanPie'': effectively all episodes involving Jim Levestein.

* ''Film/AmericanPie'': effectively all episodes involving Jim Levestein. The first movie has him prematurely ejaculating in front of a hot exchange student broadcast all over the internet.



* ''Film/SunshineCleaning'' features some of this, since the protagonists are sisters who clean up after murders and crime scenes. The famous scene involves one of them falling face-first onto a mattress that someone had died on.
* ''Film/MissCongeniality'' has several scenes where the protagonist - the most uncouth and {{Tomboy}}ish FBI agent imaginable - has to impersonate a pageant queen.



* Much of the humor of ''Series/TheComeback'' is this.

to:

* Much of the humor of ''Series/TheComeback'' is this. It's used to show Valerie as so desperate to get herself back in the spotlight, that she'll do anything for fame.

** [[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.
