* In the weeks leading up to TheEmojiMovie's release, Sony Pictures reached out to a youtuber called WebVideo/{{Jacksfilms}} and invited him to the movie's world premiere, arguing that he was the movie's biggest fan (as he had done several videos praising it), and since most popular youtubers have a demographic that consists mainly of twelve year olds, the executives probably wanted to use him and his videos to market the film. Except Jacksfilms "praise" of the movie was entirely ironic, and he and every subscriber of his (who are mostly adults) were ''[[SnarkBait making fun of the movie]]'', something the executives at Sony Pitcures [[CriticalResearchFailure failed to realize]]. His reaction at getting invited was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1-Lnk99G1U priceless]].

* ''Literature/TheCasualVacancy'' is the first book Creator/JKRowling wrote about Franchise/HarryPotter, which is naturally how it was advertised. It's a straight, rather dry political novel. The book is also rather unfit of HP's younger fans, due to having quite a bit of sexual content. It's no surprise that the initial response from the reading community was not like or dislike, but confusion. (It's also little surprise that Rowling's [[CormoranStrikeNovels next books]] were written [[MoustacheDePlume under a pseudonym]].)
