* 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.]]

* In Volume 4 of ''{{WebAnimation/RWBY}}'', political tensions are high as a result of [[spoiler:the fall of Beacon Academy]]. With his profits on the line due to the [[AppliedPhlebotinum Dust]] export embargo, [[MegaCorp Schnee Dust Company]] head [[CorruptCorporateExecutive Jaques Schnee]] organizes a charity gala to remind the people of Atlas - and the world - that the SDC is on their side. He [[GotVolunteered volunteers]] his daughter Weiss to perform in order to draw attention to her contribution - and therefore, that of the Schnee family - while on the front lines.

* [[PragmaticVillainy Margaery Tyrell]] of ''Series/GameOfThrones'' frequently helps the poor, looks after orphans, and generally plays the PrincessClassic so as to encourage the public's affections. At this point it's wide open to AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: is she just a charitable person who thinks looking after the poor is part of her duty (or at least that "if you look after the smallfolk, they'll look after you"), or a cynical manipulator trying to win power? Is Cersei's suspicion of the latter accurate (bearing in mind she's usually a HorribleJudgeOfCharacter), or a case of EvilCannotComprehendGood?
