** [[http://www.ranker.com/list/best-in-a-world-voice-over-trailers/chaz-fletcher This page]] lists several examples real-life "in a world" trailers, most of which are non-parodies and most of which are by Don Lafontaine, though few actually begin with the phrase in question. This is just to officially prove, if such proof be needed, that the "in a world" trope is not a DeadUnicornTrope.
