* ''Website/TheOnion'' has a few parodies of this, such as one video where [[http://www.theonion.com/video/manufacturer-recalls-hollow-point-bullets-that-fai,14319/ a munitions manufacturer apologized for hollow-point rounds not exploding properly]] with [[CrossesTheLineTwice animations showing the problem]].
** Even funnier if you're aware that [[AccidentallyAccurate early hollow-point designs were notorious for not expanding properly]] which is a problem if you're a cop and you don't want the bullet to kill innocent people behind the target.

* [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Krusty the Clown]] will endorse any product as long as the price is right. This has made him a favorite among manufacturers who knows that their product is toxic, infected, explosive, higly flammable, unsafe in any other way, or simply not working right. Clearly, it's easier to get an endorsement from Krusty than to make a good (or even mediocre) product.

* In Franchise/{{Halo}}, most Covenant weapons aren't particularly reliable, as some of them tend to overheat, and give the user a painful shock when they do. This is a result of the covies religious dogma: most of their technology are based of Forerunner tech and any attempts to modify it would be heresy.

* Franchise/{{Starcraft}} does this trope proud. Many of the Terrans' combat machines are out to passively or actively kill them. Most notable is the [[TransformingMecha Viking]], a versatile transforming fighter which claims so many of its pilots, that they are known as 'Cherries' until they survive one transformation.

You've just made [[NoPlansNoPrototypeNoBackup a new product]]! Why not test it yourself without a hazardous environment suit? Or better yet, put it into mass-production and [[UnfinishedUntestedUsedAnyway release it to the public as soon as possible]]. [[TemptingFate Surely, nothing bad could come from]] something made on a budget. {{What could possibly go wrong}} from a lack of clinical trials?

* In a classic SaturdayNightLive sketch Dan Akroyd plays a CorruptCorporateExecutive, Irwin Mainway, who is trying to persuade a TV reporter that his company's toys are fun and safe for children. The products include a teddy bear with a built-in functioning chainsaw and a bag of broken glass. More HilarityEnsues when he then tries to 'prove' that regular, safe toys are actually extremely unsafe.

* An episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheDayMyButtWentPsycho'' shows many of the products that Silas has lent his name to, including the Silas Brand Teddy Bear "for the child you only sort of like". It is covered in spikes and bursts into flames when hugged.
