* ''WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow'' had one InUniverse: A playground kid mocks Rallo's "stupid rap," and Rallo replies that it's a joke band, "like SpinalTap, or [[TakeThat Aerosmith]]".

* ''Film/{{Showgirls}}'' was savaged by critics and audiences when it came out, but has since attracted a fairly large cult following, with some of it's fans seeing the movie as SoBadItsGood, and others seeing the movie as a satire of the Vegas entertainment scene, or even fame and pop culture itself. It's also seen by some as a deconstruction of traditional RagsToRiches stories using elements of ''Film/AStarIsBorn'' and ''Film/AllAboutEve''.

* The Music/LemonDemon song "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QDYj_4RCcrg The Satirist's Love Song]]" is about someone using this trope to explain a failed relationship:
--> ''I've been satirizing ever since''\\
''The first day we met''\\
''Our love is a great work of satire''\\
''That you just didn't get''

Added DiffLines:

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'':
** A lot of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyV'''s fans argue against criticism of the game's LighterAndSofter nature, daft ClicheStorm elements or its LargeHam boss by insisting it's a parody of ''Final Fantasy''. There's a few sequences that qualify as parody of how these games tend to go down (Bartz waking up from a meaningful dream about his destiny to discover his party staring at him freaking out, the whole SoupCans sequence with the Ronkan door switch), but for the most part it's a normal ''Final Fantasy'' with jokes in.
** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' is often interpreted this way by people defending its more questionable choices - the ChosenOne RagtagBunchOfMisfits are a violent and miserable group who hate each other (like they'd be in reality) rather than TrueCompanions, the entire world is a [[SlidingScaleOfLinearityVsOpenness beautiful hyper-linear tube]] (which is all that {{JRPG}}s are under the hood), the token overly sexualised GenkiGirl is deliberately irritating and completely insane, TheHero is not, the EmoTeen is a shitlord, the Cid is evil... However, it could just as easily be a case of {{Franchise Original Sin}}s becoming magnified to extremes with unintentionally DeconstructiveParody effects.

Added DiffLines:

* Inverted with ''Film/TheIncredibleMeltingMan''. The director has gone on record to say that he intended it from the start to be a parody of monster flicks (which considering its ridiculous premise and being made about 20 years after the heyday of such movies in the 1950s, isn't hard to believe), but that that the final product isn't one. It ended up being a hot mess thanks to ExecutiveMeddling, when the studio insisted that he play it all totally straight against his wishes.

* Internet {{troll}}s. Some claim that their antics were "just an experiment." This is so common, that the phrase "Social Experiment" has become both a [[MemeticMutation meme]] and a trope of its own among the denizens of Fandom Wank.

* ''Film/JeepersCreepers'', but not by the filmmakers. In 2013, it got a tv broadcast......on ComedyCentral, who advertised it as [[{{Narm}} a comedy]].

* Robin Thicke has tried to pass "Blurred Lines" off as this in the wake of its lyrics being denounced as misogynistic. He even went so far as to claim the ''{{Film/Anchorman}}'' character Ron Burgundy as inspiration.

* Joe Simon and JackKirby's Fighting American (who was basically an {{Expy}} of their more popular creation, CaptainAmerica) started off as a dead serious book about Commie-smashing. When the anti-communist {{Witch Hunt}}s of Joe [=McCarthy=] began to fall out of favor with Americans, Simon and Kirby quickly tried to {{ReTool}} the series into a tongue-in-cheek parody of RedScare stories. It didn't work, and the title was cancelled after just seven issues.
