* Music/PaulHarcastle's 1985 Vietnam War inspired classic ''19'' ("none of them received a hero's welcome") drew a cricket themed parody by The Commentators (basically impressionist Rory Bremner) entitled ''N-N-Nineteen Not Out'' ("none of them received a standing ovation"). Several years later, Hardcastle admitted to having co-produced the parody, much against his label's objections.

** More audaciously, they did filming ''on the Burning Crusade alpha server''. Those people in the background jumping around and doing whatever? Real players blissfully unaware of what was being filmed near them.

* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'': in addition to the "Conspiracy Theory Rock" example in the Western Animation folder, there have been sketches where the hosts (usually movie or TV stars) reprise their famous characters for a parody sketch. Examples: JonHamm as Don Draper for both a ''Series/MadMen'' parody called "Two A-Holes At An Ad Agency in the 1960s" [[note]]That sketch even had Elizabeth Moss and John Slattery from the actual series[[/note]] and a short film called "Don Draper's Guide to Picking Up Women," Daniel Radcliffe as a washed-up Harry Potter who's still living in Hogwarts' years after graduating, David Duchovny as Agent Mulder in an ''X-Files'' parody cold open about a beast man attacking cast members, Zac Efron in a ''Film/HighSchoolMusical'' parody where he comes back during graduation and tells the graduating class that the real world is ''not'' like ''High School Musical'', John Malkovich as Vicomte Sébastien de Valmont in a ''Dangerous Liasions'' stage show parody that takes place in a hot tub, and John Malkovich again in an ''Of Mice and Men'' parody that had two guys who acted like Lennie instead of the Lennie and George pairing. Creator/JoePesci and RobertDeNiro were also good sports when they appeared on "The Joe Pesci Show" on SNL. Sarah Michelle Gellar played [[Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer Buffy]] in a sketch where, rather than living in Sunnydale, she lives in New York and has ''Seinfeld''ian plots. A parody mash up of ''Series/TheLoveBoat'' and ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' had Creator/PatrickStewart and Bernie Kopell playing their respective characters.
