* In ''VideoGame/PAYDAY2'''s Election Day mission, Plan B for rigging the election is to rob a bank next door to the election center, "accidentally" damaging the machines by blowing up the wall next to them. The election results will be invalidated, and everybody will think you were just robbing a bank instead of doing some dirty political work.

* Goes not quite as planned in an episode of ''KingOfQueens''. Doug and Carry want to get rid of an awful painting which was a present by the Palmers, so they tell Danny and Spence to fake-burgle their house and "steal" it. To lend the story some credibility, Spence and Danny are supposed to [[RansackedRoom leave behind a chaos]] in the Heffernan's living room. In the end, their "chaos" only consists of a couch pillow lying on the floor. Needless to say, this doesn't really serve to convince the Palmers very much.
