* A number of entries in TheSlenderManMythos are set in New Jersey. Of course, that's just because the people making them live there, but the state's reputation as a WeirdnessMagnet could be what inspired them to do so. One blog even noted that "It's always either Jersey or Alabama" (Alabama being where ''WebVideo/MarbleHornets'' takes place, the series that got everybody [[FollowTheLeader Following The Leader]]).

* BruceSpringsteen is from New Jersey, and several of his songs are love letters to his home state. Several others are about how much the state sucks (see: "Born to Run"). He also contributed the EndingTheme for the above-mentioned ''Film/TheWrestler''.

# An overgrown Little Italy. Everybody seems to know somebody who knows somebody who is "[[TheMafia connected]]", be they a mechanic in Hoboken or a soccer mom in Parsippany. [[SleazyPolitician The politicians]] rival Third World dictators in brazen corruption.[[note]]To be fair, this is actually true.[[/note]] All the white people are Italian (and as of the 2010s they'll be white in name only, as they'll be slathered in fake-tan body paint), and they all know what the hottest clubs are. The men have blowouts, dress in either Armani Exchange clothing or muscle shirts, do vast quantities of steroids, drive [[CoolCar '80s IROC-Z Camaros or entry-level BMWs]], and are insanely misogynistic and homophobic. The women, known as "Jersey Girls," are all {{Hard Drinking Party Girl}}s, still have EightiesHair decades after it went out of style, wear ten pounds of makeup, and are always [[{{Stripperiffic}} dressed like they're headed to the club]]. The only radio station is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WKTU WKTU]], and they are always playing Music/LadyGaga or Cascada remixes. If a techno-sounding beat starts playing, the natural response is to start pumping one's fist in the air. And everyone speaks with an obnoxious, nasally, highly {{Flanderized}} [[UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents Italian-American/New York accent]].

** Fry and the gang are touring a beautiful apartment (the listing actually says "suspiciously perfect apartment"), after looking at several dumps earlier in the episode.

* Jean Shepherd wrote many short stories about Joisey. Many of them satirizing pop art -- such as the large ship sailing against traffic on Route 22, Lucy, the giant elephant hotel room in Margate, and them concrete Mexicans and flamingos on people's lawns.

Added DiffLines:

* ''{{Film/Heartbreakers}}'' has the character Dean (played by NJ native Ray Liotta) as a shady car chopper, who's known for being TheCasanova and carrying a gun around. When the protagonists need his help moving a body, he responds "I'm from Jersey, aren't I?" - of course he's shown to be a JerkWithAHeartOfGold as well.
* Inverted in ''Film/SeekingAFriendForTheEndOfTheWorld''. Camden, New Jersey, is shown to be a pleasant built-up suburbia. In reality it's far closer to the stereotype. Especially ironic, considering the film shows other areas in riots over the world ending.

* Wrestling/{{TNA}}, in a transparent effort to cash in on ''Series/JerseyShore'''s popularity(the tv show, not the stable which was long dead at the time), briefly had {{the gimmick}} "Shore", featuring {{exp|y}}ies of the Situation and Snooki who feuded with the real J-WOWW. They've also done cross promotional events with Jersey All Pro Wrestling, which caused Wrestling/AJStyles to try to have [[CheapHeat all "backstage passes" revoked]].

Added DiffLines:

* Liv Morgan of NXT is from New Jersey and has her area code '201' on her ring gear and entrance video. As she's a {{Face}} she's more of a PluckyGirl.

* ''WesternAnimation/Bob's Burgers'' is set in a nondescript seaside town in New Jersey. The show features much more loving parodies of New Jersey culture than most, and touches on the difficulties of living in a seasonal tourism economy, like those present in many Jersey shore communities. It even has an episode dedicated to a prohibition-era taffy company situated on a boardwalk.

* In ''Film/SupermanTheMovie'', Lex Luthor's master plan involves two nuclear missiles, one aimed at the San Andreas Fault in California, and the other aimed at Hackensack, New Jersey. It's implied that the latter target was chosen because he doesn't like his girlfriend's mother who lives there.
