* A PublicServiceAnnouncement for [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqGNfl_F6bU Operation: Graduation]] involves a teenage boy who thinks [[SchoolIsForLosers]] where his BlackBestFriend park the school bus in front of his house and persuade him to come down and come to school to avoid dropping out, speaking in stereotypical "hip" slang the whole time.

* Used by [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Luke Cage]] [[CaptainErsatz parody]] Buck Wild in DwayneMcDuffie's ''ComicBook/{{Icon}}'', with phrases such as "Sweet Easter!" and "Aunt Jemima's do rag!". It turns out this is because he suffered brain damage back in the '70s. DwayneMcDuffie was actually noted for his intense dislike of the Luke Cage character due to it's perpetuation of the "urban" stereotype.

* 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in ''[[VideoGame/Bully Bully]]'' attempt to use slang when they talk, sometimes with [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe heavily-outdated English]], to try fit in.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.
