* Twins Hikaru and Kaoru from ''Manga/OuranHighschoolHostClub'' [[GenreSavvy intentionally exaggerate their "brotherly affection"]] to cater to their {{twincest}}-loving YaoiFangirl clientele. PlayedForDrama later on, when the reason supplied for their "unnatural" closeness is an inability to open up to other people.

* ''Series/TheDrewCareyShow'' has dipped into this well at least twice. The first time, Drew and Oswald pretended to be a gay couple so that Drew could use his company health insurance to buy a hip replacement for his dog Speedy. The second time, Drew marries his boss Mr. Wick to [[CitizenshipMarriage allow him to stay in the country]], in exchange for Mr. Wick giving Drew his old job back. They have to pretend to be gay when someone is sent over to make sure that the marriage is legit.

They have to pretend to be gay when someone is sent over to make sure that the marriage is legit. Unfortunately, Drew had also recently joined the Boy Scouts as a scoutmaster, something that has long been a dream of his. They don't allow gay people to join, and Drew's superior has come by to give him an evaluation at the same time. HilarityEnsues.
** Apparently Drew and Wick are still married, if [[AllJustADream the finale]] to Craig Ferguson's run of ''Series/TheLateLateShow'' is to be believed. They even share a bed. The yay might not be so faux anymore...

* Ayame Sohma of ''Manga/FruitsBasket'' is practically the incarnation of this trope: he wears feminine clothes, speaks in a stereotypically "gay" manner, crawls into bed to cuddle with an unwilling Kyo, and constantly exchanges sexually-charged banter with Shigure that implies [[KissingCousins more than cousinly affection]]. Despite this, he's actually quite straight. He has a girlfriend and business partner he adores (Mine Kuramae, the local seamstress and {{Meganekko}}), and his constant flirting with Shigure turns out to just be a mutual gag they use to bug people (and in Ayame's case, [[spoiler:perhaps to discourage the family head from having sex with him).]]

* MileyCyrus has dabbled with this trope from time to time, in television performances and live appearances, at least since 2010. The 2013-14 ''Bangerz'' tour is filled with FauxYay, from flirty/suggestive moments with her female dancers to kissing KatyPerry in the audience of a show.

* ''"Terry rushed up to Barger, threw his arms around him and planted a sloppy wet kiss on his mouth. This is a guaranteed square-jolter, and the Angels are gleefully aware of the reaction it gets... The sight of a photographer invariably whips the Angels into a kissing frenzy, but I have never seen them do it among themselves, when there was nobody around to shock. There is an element of showbiz to it..."'' - HunterSThompson, "Hell's Angels"

* MindlessSelfIndulgence frontman James "Jimmy Urine" Euringer was known for this, first as shock, (there exists footage of him making out with a male audience member, knocking him over, and then teabagging him) then for humor, where he would pull off the CampGay archetype as a gag.

* In ''ComicBook/XForce'', newcomers Phat and Vivisector pretended to be lovers because they felt their teammates were getting a disproportionate amount of media attention. This all gets turned on its head when they conclude that they really ''are'' gay... but not actually attracted to one another. They stay friends, though.

* Music/FranzFerdinand's "Michael" from ''Music/FranzFerdinand2004''. While the band maintains that they are straight, they still find it amusing that many fans still think that they are gay because of the homoerotic lyrics in that song.

* While the men of BarenakedLadies are happily married dads, that didn't stop guitarist Ed Robinson and former lead singer Steven Page from occasionally dancing together and stage kissing.

[[caption-width-right:295: The [[{{Irony}} ironic]] part is that [[GenderBender the party girl is actually a guy.]] [[DudeLooksLikeALady And so is the person to the right of him/her...]]]]
