* Another early progenitor of the modern FanVid: ''Fighter Fling,'' created by none other than the F-14 Tomcat fighter squadrons of the '''[[YanksWithTanks United States Navy]]'''. That's right, even the hotshot ''Film/TopGun'' types were into this sort of thing! From 1989 to 2004 (when the Tomcat's retirement was announced), the squadrons would produce one long yearbook-like video of Tomcats and their crew acting badass or [[BunnyEarsLawyer Bunny-Eared]] set to whatever music was popular at the time. Every so often, clips or entire Fighter Fling videos appear on Website/YouTube, but as they are no less copyright violations than the average modern-day FanVid, they are often taken down due to DMCA.

* "Teenage Dream" by Music/KatyPerry is frequently used for any relationship involving teenage characters. "Last Friday Night" is a go-to song for depicting strange situations, HilarityEnsues, or BigLippedAlligatorMoment scenes in the canon by implying the characters were intoxicated while it happened.
