* ''VideoGame/FireEmblemFates'' has [[BigBrotherMentor Xander]] mention a variant of this when giving advice to his son [[PrincelyYoungMan Siegbert]]. He apparently still suffers from nerves in front of crowds. So how does he get past this?
-->"...Bunnies. Whenever the people's beseeching eyes caused me to lose my nerve... I would imagine them as bunnies. Even the most chickenhearted, after all, never shrank from a bunny's stare."

Basically a StockPhrase, "If you're nervous, imagine the audience naked." A common variation of this is "Imagine the audience in their underwear." This trope is usually [[PlayingWithATrope played with]]. Sometimes the [[FanService viewers at home are shown]] what the character sees, usually in the underwear variety [[HandOrObjectUnderwear unless there's some handy scenery]] - sometimes they will [[FanDisservice wish they couldn't]]. Sometimes, there really will be someone naked or in their underwear.

* There are nudist jokes/strips that revolve around inverting this trope.
* If you are nervous about editing TVTropes, just imagine that all the tropers who will read what you write are naked. Heck - if they're ''at home'' on the computer, they could well be!
* Presenters at kink conventions are sometimes advised to pretend the audience is fully clothed, so they can stay on topic better.

* On ''Series/WhosTheBoss'', Tony gives this advice to a classmate when he has to give a presentation, but it backfires when he starts leering at the attractive girls in the class and ignoring the unattractive men, all the while oblivious to the questions that ''both'' sets of people are trying to ask.

* In one episode of ''Series/RedDwarf'', Kochanski encourages Kryten to stand up to people by imagining them on the toilet. When it actually comes down do it though, he can't manage it. So he forces them, at gunpoint, to go sit on the toilet so that he can laugh and them and have the courage to say that 'No, he does not want to be reset to factory settings'. For some unaccountable reason they decide to do it anyway.
