* In the webcomic ''{{Nip and Tuck}}'', shy porcupine Zelda is uncomfortable with interviewing her childhood crush Nip. Charlotte says, [[http://www.rhjunior.com/NT/00752.html in jest]], this trope. Then Nip swam across the pool. The last three strips show Zelda grinning and blushing more and more, but not without escaping the notice of Charlotte.

* Carla's trick on ''{{Cheers}}'' is to imagine the audience naked, but wearing black socks. * Dorothy gives Rose this advice on ''TheGoldenGirls'', but Rose and Blanche crack up at the thought of Dorothy naked. * In ''{{Coupling}}'', Patrick's advice to Jeff that he imagine his bosses naked during a big presentation ''almost'' works; Trying it out the day before, Jeff sees a big boost in confidence, but at the presentation accidentally visualises ''himself'' naked in the ''full length body mirror'' behind the desk his bosses are sitting at.

* ''TheOffice'' episode "Fun Run": Pam walks in on Michael, who is using his office to change. She later comments on how picturing an audience naked is a bad idea and instead you should imagine them wearing funny winter coats. * On ''TheBradyBunch,'' Marcia imagines her driving tester in his underwear. * On ''SaturdayNightLive,'' guest host Pam Anderson did an opening monologue where she said (paraphrased): "I'm really neverous. They say when you're nervous you're supposed to imagine the audience naked...that's not working. Maybe you're supposed to imagine ''yourself'' naked...no, that's not working, either. Oh wait, maybe you're supposed to '''really be''' naked! (takes off clothes) Oh yes, that's much better, I'm more relaxed now." (Full transcript [[http://snltranscripts.jt.org/96/96rmono.phtml here]]) ** ''SNL'' did this trope again on the season 36 episode hosted by Jon Hamm with musical guest Rihanna. In the Digital Short, "Ronnie and Clyde" (a ''Bonnie and Clyde'' parody-cum-music video with Rihanna as Clyde and Shy Ronnie [a redheaded, mumbling nerd played by Andy Samberg]), Clyde urges Ronnie to be more assertive by imagining the hostages naked. It only succeeded in giving Ronnie a RagingStiffie. * A similar case is in an episode of ''SaluteYourShorts'' where the group is putting on a play. Dina has bad stage fright, and Sponge advises her to picture a giant chicken at the back of the audience. On the day of the play, she begins to choke...then sees a chicken in the back of the room. Turns out it's Sponge in a costume; the trick works and the play goes as well as any play with Donkey Lips as a rapping mouse could go. * In an episode of the ''{{Dinosaurs}}'' TV show, Charlene was nervous about a musical act for soldiers. "Two thousand teenage boys in their underwear?? See you on stage, daddy!"

* In the spelling bee episode of ''NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' Ned gives this advice to Cookie, and at the end of the episode, the entire audience inexplicably becomes all-male and actually strip to their underwear to help Cookie win the bee. * In an episode of ''HomeImprovement'', Brad was about to appear on ''Tool Time'' and was suffering from stage fright. Heidi, who was played by Debbie Dunning, advised him to picture everyone in their underwear. For clarification; his boss's extremely attractive co-worker told a teenage boy to think about people in their underwear. Brad gets a sort of stunned look on his face while the audience laughs.

* ''NotfunnyCartoons'' has a really, really weird subversion; a man comes to a job interview, only to find out that ''the interviewers are actually naked so he can't imagine they were'', just to spite him. (His comment? "Aww.") [[http://nichtlustig.de/toondb/090225.html It has to be seen to be believed]] (although it's only available in German right now).
