* Many members of the [[HollywoodNerd Nerd clique]] in ''[[VideoGame/Bully Bully]]'' attempt to use slang when they talk, sometimes with [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe heavily-outdated English]], to try fit in. The worst offenders are [[MommasBoy Algie]], Bucky, and to a lesser extent, [[MrImagination Melvin]]. The cutscene for one mission in the game features Algie painfully trying to speak in Jive before Jimmy cuts him off.

* In ''Film/{{Transformers}}'' (2007), Jazz does this entirely during his introduction and occasionally through the film, though it's mostly due to his learning English via the internet, and also as he's always been the Autobot most into absorbing "hip culture."
** Then there's the twins in ''Revenge of the Fallen'', who crank this UpToEleven, and subsequently [[TheScrappy got bashed]] [[UncleTomfoolery for it]].
** Sam's mother in Transformers 1 spoke of giving her dog jewelery by painfully claiming that she was "giving him some bling"; though in all probability, the audience was ''supposed'' to be laughing at her and not with her.

* ''{{Transformers}}''
** Most incarnations of Jazz are like this to a certain degree. (The original ''was'' voiced by [[WesternAnimation/HongKongPhooey Scatman Crothers]], after all.) His ''[[TransformersAnimated Animated]]'' incarnation is [[WordOfGod explicitly]] supposed to sound like an beatnik.
** Soundwave's ''Cybertron'' incarnation talks like an old school DJ.
** Blaster is right up there in the 80's movie. Although his lingo does appear to be an amalgam of DJ and military speak.
* Toyed with in ''XMenEvolution'' with the reimagining of the character Forge, who had been trapped in an alternate dimension for 30 years. After confusing Nightcrawler with his '70s slang, Kurt hilariously (and cringe-inducingly) misuses "modern" slang expressing concern at the datedness of Forge's speech patterns. Almost definitely self-conscious, as Nightcrawler never used fake slang again and the slang was the punchline.

* Creator/TexAvery's cartoon [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ot92Yfovvvg "Symphony in Slang"]] features the angels at the [[FluffyCloudHeaven Pearly Gates]] unable to understand a new arrival who only speaks in 1940s - 1950s slang. St. Peter calls in Noah Webster for assistance. The entire cartoon features [[VisualPun humorously imagined literal interpretations]] of his expressions. "I got a job slinging hash, but couldn't cut the mustard, so they gave me the gate." Turns out he's in Heaven because he "died laughing".

Added DiffLines:

* Gregory House, from [[Series/HouseMD the eponymous series]], is a highly educated man who - dealing with his fair share of street punks at his job and having been brought up in a military environment - is familiar with street slang. He uses it occasionally in an obvious comedic tone, but ''always'' impeccably.

** This one is made even funnier in the German dub. Seeing an elderly woman converse with two afro-americans in a very thick Bavarian accent is hilarious.
** It's also Barbara Billingsley, a.k.a. June Cleaver from the most white-bread and square show ever, ''LeaveItToBeaver'', as the jive-talking lady.
