* Recurring use by the French videomaker [[http://www.youtube.com/user/experimentboyTV/videos Experimentboy]] (mainly in his video descriptions, but sometimes also in the video itself). As his videos essentially consist in playing with fire, destroying things with a lanwmover, cooking dangerous things in microwave ovens, or firing improvised ammunitions (tin cans, nails, dolls, etc) with a spud gun, this is totally justified.

-->'''Max:''' He'd always say "Don't try this at home, kids!" So me and my friends would go around the city and copy his moves in much more dangerous places.

* ''Series/AllAussieAdventures'' parodies this in the credits a number of times - the point is not that Russell is a qualified and experienced professional, but that even the producers realise he's dangerously incompetent. For example, "The use of diesel fuel to start a campfire is not recommended unless you want a really ''big'' campfire." In one case, it shows up during the actual episode, during Russell's botched demonstration of applying a pressure bandage after a snake bite.

* In ''Series/BeakmansWorld'', one particularly dangerous demonstration involving ammonia and strong acids has a comical quick cut beforehand of all the characters turning in place with klaxons blaring and rotating red lights flashing before cutting a particularly urgent "Don't try this..." warning. On the whole, however, this trope is actually avoided, as with careful following of the instructions and parental supervision, you could do most of the experiments shown at home. The "safe" stunts had their own warning: "Experiments should be performed only with adult supervision, and all appropriate safety precautions should be taken. All directions should be followed exactly, and no substitutions should be used."
