* [=TruTv=]'s short-lived Caught Red Handed involves this trope as it's main theme. This show is an reenactments of shoplifting crimes where it shows the daily life of Lost Prevention Agents capturing shoplifters in which most times the shoplifters gives the most ridiculous excuses in the show.

** One of the most ridiculous excuses is a shoplifter by the name John who steals a huge hardware item and just rush out through the door and tries to enter the cab without paying. Luckily, Lost Prevention Agents manage to catch him in time. John's first excuse was that he's late for his flight at JFK Airport so he decides to put the stolen item in the cab and pays it later. However once the agents doesn't buy his excuse, John's excuses becomes more ridiculous even mentioning that he's late for his train at JFK Airport. But the best part is his last excuse:

* In ''Disney/{{Zootopia}}'', Benjamin Clawhauser walks in on Chief Bogo playing with a Gazelle app. Chief Bogo tries desperately to pretend he is not doing that, by hiding it from view and blatantly denying that it was Gazelle that Clawhauser just heard. [[NotHelpingYourCase The app's audio is playing loudly the entire time]], so this does absolutely nothing to convince Clawhauser. He eventually says that [[BlatantLies he's working on the missing mammal cases]] in an attempt to change the subject.
