* ''VideoGame/TheTuringTest'' has audio logs where the rest of the crew accuses TOM, the AI of the mission, of mind controlling them via their implants. Sure enough, Ava, the protagonist, soon enters an area where "YOU ARE BEING CONTROLLED", "DRONE", and "TOM'S SLAVE" is written all over the place. As Ava progresses through this area, the player increasingly loses control over her, drawn along a certain path, their vision glitching out as Ava approaches a Faraday cage which the crew promises will free Ava of TOM's mind control. Typical mind control plot, right? [[spoiler: Wrong! When Ava finally enters the cage, the player's vision cuts out entirely, to be replaced by an overhead camera view of Ava in the cage. TOM wasn't taking control over her - he was *losing* control over her. The player is not playing the game from the point of view of Ava, they're playing the game from the point of view of TOM, the malevolent AI, and have been mind controlling Ava for the entire game up to that point.]]

* British KentBrockmanNews show ''Series/TheDayToday'' featured [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mjx2pclJQew a sketch]] premised on a (fake) trailer for a (fake) BBC retrospective on changing attitudes at the broadcaster, with several (fake) shows serving as case studies. One of these shows was a [[OopNorth Northern England]]-set soap called ''Frampton Row'', referred to as the "first popular weekly serial to use swear words" - footage from the show depicts a woman having a conversation with a newspaper vendor, whom she tells "I'm not made of money, especially not since Eddie Copsy and his bloomin' lids!", the gag seemingly that where the viewer was expecting to hear genuine cuss words, they instead got a CurseOfTheAncients. However, as the woman hands over money to buy a newspaper, she jovially tells the vendor, "There you are, ya big hairy cock!" and then as she turns to leave, the vendor casually sees her off with "Ta-ra, ya shitter!"

* CainAndAbel is subverted brilliantly at the end of the first season of ''Series/{{Borgia}}''. [[folder:Juan]] has been found dead, and no one knows who killed him--but it's really starting to look like it was his little brother Cesare. The brothers fight a lot, and are bother ''very'' hot-headed--it's very easy to image what could've happened. Cesare [[WhatDidIDoLastNight doesn't remember what he did that night]]. [[spoiler:Juan]] always [[BigBrotherBully bullied him]]. Cesare is {{the Unfavourite}}, and AlwaysSecondBest. When Cesare really starts to believe it was him, he goes to their sister, Lucrezia, and tells her what he thinks he's done. She swears he ''didn't'' kill him... because [[spoiler:''she'' did]].
