** Similarly, governments holding military prisoners might try to tout how well said prisoners are being treated, leading to the infamous [[FlippingTheBird Hawaiian "Good Luck" sign]] during the "[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Pueblo_(AGER-2) Pueblo crisis]]" in 1968.

* Politicians love to have their pictures taken with members of the military, since the military members are more respected and trusted than any politician could hope to be, and the politician hopes this will give them a boost. By and large, members of the military do ''not'' like being used as props in this way, and only do it because they've been ordered to. An excellent example is when Hillary was shown shaking hands with a soldier, who was not subtle at all about placing his other hand on his chest where his crossed fingers were clearly shown.

* Forms part of a story arc in ''WesternAnimation/JusticeLeagueUnlimited'': Lex makes multiple shows of [[CivilianVillain putting supervillainy behind him]] to focus on bettering mankind, none of which {{Superman}} buys for a second, culminating in the building of a state-of-the-art housing project for the underprivileged. When Supes overhears Lex whispering to an assistant about "activating the device", his x-ray vision finds an unknown machine buried under the apartment buildings, which he promptly tears down in his attempt to get at it before it can be turned on. [[NiceJobBreakingItHero Turns out it was just a new kind of generator, which would have provided clean energy to the whole project.]] Superman is [[WhatTheHellHero publicly shamed]] and his confidence shaken... [[spoiler:[[BatmanGambit which was Cadmus' aim all along.]]]]

* Modern technology has created a much subtler way for celebrities to create the photo op. Notify the press that you don't want any cameras at the hospital/soup kitchen/clean up, which has the added benefit of letting them know what you're doing, the other volunteers will invariably ask for a photo with you which will then quickly get shared on social media including the mention of you not wanting any attention.

* Not long after he [[UsefulNotes/GulfWar invaded Kuwait]], UsefulNotes/SaddamHussein tried to gain international sympathy and ease tensions by having a brief televised interview with a young boy named Stewart Lockwood, [[http://www.historyguy.com/stuart_lockwood_saddam.gif patting him on the back]] and asking if he was "still getting his milk". Young Stewart was one of several Westerners held in Iraqi-occupied Kuwait as hostages by Hussein, who more or less paraded them in front of a camera to prevent Western intervention in the war. The event had the exact opposite effect. If anything, it galvanized Western public opinions against the occupation. [[DidntThinkThisThrough Whoopsie.]]
