Not to mention that just about anything - ''anything'' - [[Rule35 can be made to appear sexy or even erotic]]. Sometimes the makers will discover the extra audience, resulting in an AudienceShift. MundaneMadeAwesome is this trope when the subject isn't interesting to begin with, but becomes that way with a little imagination.

** There's also ''VideoGame/EuroTruckSimulator'', a truck driving sim. Its sequel (or second version, depending on your view of computer games with numbers on the end of their titles) came out in late 2012 and was promptly bought as a gag gift by about half of the SomethingAwful forum. This was followed by a rash of people confessing that they were unironically enjoying the experience, prompting [[http://www.destructoid.com/review-euro-truck-simulator-2-243592.phtml Destructoid's Jim Sterling to review it]]. It has gained enough popularity to become one of the games to tout UsefulNotes/{{Steam}}'s new Trading Cards feature, and tellingly, it is among one of the more expensive games to collect cards for due to [[CultClassic high demand for the badges earned from collecting the cards and low supply of dedicated players earning card drops.]]

** In ''Series/StargateSG1'' Jonas Quinn is from an alien planet with technology roughly on par with the early/mid twentieth century (They are working on their analogue to the atomic bomb), When he comes to to Earth he finds the Weather Channel fascinating and can watch it for hours; when questioned he explains that the ability to predict weather with a relative degree of accuracy is like watching the future.

** ''Sailing By'' could almost qualify on its own. Originally composed to accompany footage of hot-air balloons floating across an alpine landscape, it is not merely a theme tune but a time buffer used to ensure that the forecast goes out at 0048 precisely. Thus, one only occasionally hears it from beginning to end as it is played to fill in any time between the shipping forecast and the previous scheduled programme. It also acts as a distinctive sonic beacon for anyone trying to tune in. Befitting of these functions, it is a distinctive, repetitive waltz that many find highly soporific - it was for this reason that Music/JarvisCocker chose it as one of his DesertIslandDiscs. Listen to it in full [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFdas-kMF74 here]].
