** In another ''Doctor Who'' episode, the Doctor shows up in the 19th century claiming to be Literature/SherlockHolmes (and dressed the part). Unfortunately, the BigBad's human assistant has heard of ArthurConanDoyle and his novel. In fact, he has mentioned it in all but name earlier in the episode to a female [[LizardFolk Silurian]] detective, upon whom the character is actually based.

** Inverted in ''Film/AustinPowersInternationalManOfMystery''. Having missed out on thirty years of pop culture, Austin picks the aliases [[HappyDays Richie Cunningham]] and Oprah for himself and Vanessa. Similarly, Dr. Evil, having gone through the same freezing process, calls his moon laser the [[Franchise/StarWars Death Star]] and the task of assembling it Music/TheAlanParsonsProject. Having gone back to 1969, however, only [[GenreSavvy Scott]] realizes the idiocy.
