* Metro Trains Melbourne's rail safety ad: ''WebAnimation/DumbWaysToDie'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IJNR2EpS0jw here]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvFNQuZgFX4 This Canadian PSA]], which features a pop group at a school assembly ''singing about sex'', with the audience uncharacteristically eliciting a FlatWhat. Just when you thought it couldn't get weirder, then came the dancers in ''penis and vagina costumes'', and the people chanting "Go Penis! Go Penis!"

** Made even worse by the recurring quote "All is for the best in the best of all possible worlds" with all the atroities around, often repeated just after something especially terrible happened. Well justified as the book was intended to be a sarcastic approach to the government, society and philosophy, particularly Gottfried Leibniz's optimism.

* From about the same time as Andy Kaufman, we have Michael O'Donoghue, who was an editor for the National Lampoon and it's radio show, head writer for ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' when it first started, and co-writer of ''Film/{{Scrooged}}.'' This is the man who had an office full of nude amputee pin ups, spray painted the word "DANGER" on the NBC studio wall after asking what the show lacked, and almost got a skit to air portraying the head of NBC as Hitler in the bunker. Needless to say, they fired him over [[ExecutiveMeddling his outrageous attempt to create his own show]] that spoofed {{Mondo}} movies.

* Creator/GabrielIglesias doesn't usually pass too far over the line, but there's one story that's been pulled from his Creator/ComedyCentral stories and even nearly got him banned from ''Series/TheTonightShow.'' The story begins with Gabriel and a friend passing through a town and learning an old comedy buddy of theirs is performing. Gabriel wants to prank call the buddy, tell them they [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbppTv4pCGQ have a gift basket]] for him, and describe it as being filled with all sorts of items that black people are stereotypically known to like. Then Gabriel & his friend realize they have a couple of hours to kill and proceed to actually ''make'' the basket...

* ''LightNovel/{{Baccano}}'''s [[spoiler:[[SociopathicHero Claire Stanfield]]]] doesn't cross the line so much as he plays double-dutch with it. In any given episode he appears in, he can come off as over-the-top {{Badass}}, disturbingly psychotic, or any combination thereof as many as five or six times depending on the gratuitous amount of {{Gorn}} he churns out. Most people end up filing him under {{Ax Cr|azy}}[[CrazyAwesome azy Awesome]] and call it a day.

This isn't as easy as it sounds. Shows attempting to be DarkerAndEdgier with their humor this way straddle the line between sadism and comedy, and it's easy to make a mistake and fall on the wrong side of the S.S. Tightrope. Rather than cross the line a second time, the show [[MemeticMutation makes a wrong turn at Albuquerque]] and breaks the audience's WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief. Some people just don't have a second line to cross in their minds, and will dislike any turn into sadism or vulgarity.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibles'': The death montage of the Supers who died thanks to their capes. Normally, the means of death (including getting ''sucked into a jet turbine and crushed by an elevator'' would be horrifying. But the rapid fire way that Edna Mode lists them, as well as the fact that they all died to something as trivial as a ''cape'' turns it back into a hilarious moment.
