** HollywoodMidlifeCrisis jokes have always been a constant with the Doctor, but when the Twelfth Doctor starts going around playing electric guitar, wearing a hoodie and swapping his Sonic Screwdriver for a pair of Sonic Sunglasses, it comes across like he's desperately wishing he was still in the late 70s. (Which, considering his personality is RevisitingTheRoots to a more distant and moody 70s-style Doctor after the {{Adorkable}} {{Hipster}} boys of the previous decade, he is doing on a meta level, too.)

* Wrestling/{{WWE}} tag team Deuce 'n Domino were a pair of '50s greaser throwbacks complete with pompadours, leather jackets, a valet who dresses in a poodle skirt (albeit ''[[{{Fanservice}} much]]'' [[{{Stripperiffic}} shorter]] than actual ones of the period) and rollerskates, an entrance that involves them driving out in a classic convertible, and a theme song that wouldn't be out of place on the ''Film/{{Grease}}'' soundtrack. This got a brief subversion from play-by-play commentator Michael Cole, where he mentioned that they admitted in private with him that they realize it's not the '50s, but they like the look. They may have been prescient when it comes to rollerskates, though. Roller derby is currently making a comeback in large to medium-sized American cities, complete with the "retro" pre-1990s skate style.
* Long before Deuce 'n Domino, Wrestling/{{WCW}} had [[Wrestling/GlennGilbertti Disco Inferno]], whose gimmick was ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin. In his later years, in an attempt to be more current, he became PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy and changed his name to Disqo (a play on Sisqo, a rapper who experienced faddish popularity around the turn of the century). That didn't work out for him, and so he went back to being Disco Inferno until WCW closed.
