* The song [[TitleDrop A Good Idea At the Time]] by OkGo both expresses SympathyForTheDevil and is an [[ShoutOut explicit homage]] to the RollingStones song ''Sympathy for the Devil'', portraying Lucifer as simply a guy after a good time who keeps winding up causing horrific situations throughout history, usually because of [[ItSeemedLikeAGoodIdeaAtTheTime this trope]] and the consumption of [[AlcoholInducedIdiocy ludicrous amounts of booze]].

** This statement could probably be the unoffical motto for Aperture Science in general. Which is exemplified by the Mantis DNA project, in which the second batch of test subjects gets used for a new test: fighting an army of Mantis Men.

* In ''VideoGame/RuneScape'', if you tease the bandit "Narf" about his name, he mocks yours (your username) in return, and your character replies that [[NoFourthWall it seemed like a good idea when they were signing up!]]

* True to its tendency of turning sayings into titles, ''ThisAmericanLife'' has done an episode ([[http://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/306/seemed-like-a-good-idea-at-the-time #306]]) that's flat out titled "Seemed Like a Good Idea at the Time."

* Every idea Klunk comes up with for [[DastardlyAndMuttleyInTheirFlyingMachines the Vulture Squadron]] to catch Yankee Doodle Pigeon seemed like a good idea at the time. Once it's implemented, EpicFail is imminent.
* ''Series/BobsBurgers'' - Tina is backed into a corner when classmate Tammy blackmails her with the threat of reading Tina's 'erotic friend fiction' to her crush Jimmy Junior - her mom reassures her, and tells her to take control of the situation and read her fiction herself to the whole class. It's only after she repeats her advice to Bob that she sees what a bad idea it is.
