* ''ComicString/{{Dilbert}}'' realized that deliberately invoking this on his boss was about the only way to get funding for an idea Dilbert came up with. Considering [[GladIThoughtOfIt his]] [[PointyHairedBoss boss]], he's right. Dilbert refers to this as "bossifying" his idea, and an example can be seen [[http://dilbert.com/strip/2014-01-12 here]]...

* Jaga from ''WesternAnimation/ThunderCats2011'' pulls one of these, carefully cloaking references to "Sight Beyond Sight" in aphorisms about Kingly behavior, to coax Lion-O into admitting he's had a vision. Unfortunately, he decides that having won Lion-O's trust, the details can wait... Unfortunately for ''both'' of them things go downhill from there.

Simmons likes the idea, and congratulates Lopez for his thinking. Meanwhile, Lopez can't tell either of them that the idea has a few holes in it.

* In ''Film/AttackOfTheClones'', Palpatine pulls this gambit on Jar-Jar in order to force a declaration of emergency powers that will ultimately lead to his rise as Emperor. Interestingly, he does this by having ''his chief of staff'' drop the hint rather than doing so himself, leaving him free and clear of any accusations despite the hinting being obvious and heavy-handed.
