* In 2017, a [[http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/to-be-fair-you-have-to-have-a-very-high-iq-to-understand-rick-and-morty reddit comment]] mocking the attitude of ''WesternAnimation/RickAndMorty'' fans went viral, with a lot of the show's {{Hatedom}} taking it at face value, despite the obviously parodic intent of the comment. (For one thing, it ends by saying [[Memes/SonicTheHedgehog "Nothing Personnel, Kid."]])
** There's also the infamous [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-GC5rAX0xHg "Pickle Ree"]] video of an allegedly upset ''Rick and Morty'' fanboy freaking out at a [=McDonald's=] because they didn't have szechuan sauce. The video was actually scripted and created as a satirical response to the [[SeriousBusiness actual szechuan sauce protests]] by the fandom that happened shortly before. Most people assumed the freak-out was real and became viral and continued to be used by the hatedom as a poster child for the show's {{FanDumb}}. The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oUk2ksue48I creator of the video]] himself regrets making it after the infamy and backlash he's received for it.

* Italian britpop/indie rock band Velvet wrote a song titled "Boyband", which gently mocked the BoyBand phenomenon that was at the height of its popularity at the time (2001). The lyrics and videoclip made clear the satirical intent of the song, but most listeners took them seriously, and the song being more pop than rock didn't help. They never managed to disassociate themselves from the stigma of being "another vapid boy band" despite being active to this day and releasing several critically acclaimed albums. To the general public they're just a forgotten boy band buried among dozens of similar acts.

* There were some posters who suggested ''Fanfic/TheLastWar'' to be a TrollFic, noting Harry and Hermione's [[SugarWiki/RobotUnicornAttack choice of theme song]] and that it's like a perfect Harmonian ClicheStorm.

* ''{{Series/Housos}}'' is a BlackComedy of Australia's working-class bludgers (i.e. the working-class who don't work). Two current affairs programs aired hard-hitting 'exposés' on this offensive new RealityShow. Interestingly, when they realised the show was fake they tried a new angle, complaining about tax-payers money being used to subsidise filth. The show's home channel, {{SBS}}, raised all the funds itself. All in all, the ''Housos'' creator was happy at the hilarious free publicity, [[http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/tv-and-radio/nines-current-affair-to-forget-20110217-1ay72.html while the current affairs shows got publicity of the wrong kind altogether]].

* Although the American creator Mike Diva intended [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EhkPE6rRlaw his "Japanese Donald Trump Commercial"]] to be a *parody*, many people who saw the video swore it was an actual Japanese commercial. Japanese commentors noted that no such ad ever aired in Japan, but applauded Mike for his efforts anyway.
