** In the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' episode "The City on the Edge of Forever", Creator/JoanCollins' character expresses hope that humanity will one day live in an era of peace and be able to travel through space. While the people in her boarding house scoff at this; Kirk and Spock know full well it will happen. [[spoiler: The episode's plot, however, hinges on her death being preserved in order to ensure the United States' entry until World War II, [[BornInTheWrongCentury meaning that she was in the wrong time to see all this happen.]]]]

* When Creator/AllisonPregler and WebVideo/{{Phelous}} reviewed an old Creator/MaryKateAndAshley film from the early [[TheNineties '90]], they noted that it featured an unknown child actress named [[Creator/ElizabethOlsen Lizzie Olsen]] in a bit part. Tongues firmly in cheek, the two proceeded to mock Lizzie by speculating that her career didn't pan out and that she probably never went on to act in [[Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron anything]] [[Film/CaptainAmericaCivilWar notable]].

* On ''Series/{{Vinyl}}'', the staff of American Century Records laughs at a goofy Swedish record they hear from a little band called "ABBA." Their boss Richie is the only one who sees their potential, but he himself doesn't seem thrilled when offered the chance to pick up a struggling artist named Bruce Springsteen. The entire label, save Clark, also don't foresee the upcoming market explosion of disco, and nearly axe their one disco act for not selling right before they start to blow up.

* ''Film/SLCPunk'' inverts the trope. A wealthy punk in the 1980s proudly shows off his cutting-edge laser disc player. The film was made in the 90s, by the time laser discs had utterly flopped.

* In ''Film/{{Gypsy}}'', the characters see Jack Benny perform a stand-up comedy act in the 1920s. Mama Rose remarks: [[Radio/TheJackBennyProgram "He'll never get anyplace."]] A major plot point is the Mama's inability to predict coming trends, like her insistence that vaudeville will never die.
