* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YtGSXMuWMR4 This news report]] from Creator/CharlieBrooker on the visual language of news reports. However in ''Series/{{Screenwipe}}'', he did Lampshade this trope by showing a shot of Brooker typing in the line about his show being Post Modern into the script itself.

->''"Postmodernism is an extremely broad term covering a thousand smaller movements in art, film, literature, architecture, music, and pretty much every other medium, covering such themes as concept over content, deconstruction of narrative and identity, and celebration of intertextuality. It can be applied to everything from Music/{{Madonna}}, to Creator/QuentinTarantino, to Creator/AdultSwim, to the internet in general, [[LampshadeHanging including this very web series.]]"''

->''"Postmodernism ->''"Um... Wow. That's just... [[PrecisionFStrike fucking]] stupid.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'', released in 2001, among all of the things it attempted, is regarded as the first fully postmodern savaging of video games, sequels, and video game ''players''. [[WhatTheHellHero Attacking the consumers]] went over [[TheScrappy exactly as well as you'd expect]], though it didn't quite succeed at its goal of getting people to stop liking the ''Franchise/MetalGear'' series. See [[http://www.deltaheadtranslation.com/MGS2/DOTM_TOC.htm this document]] for a full explanation of the game's postmodern subversion of genre conventions and player expectations. See also [[MGS2Ending this page]] for an explanation of the game's MindFuck of an ending, which included, among other things, telling both Raiden and the player that they are mindless puppets who do what they're told and "lack the qualifications to exercise free will."

* ''WesternAnimation/TheAmazingWorldOfGumball'' is entirely this, starting with the premise of characters from different mediums and artstyles living together in a single place. Season 1 is actually rather tame in terms of plot, but by the time Season 2 rolls out, tropes are twisted and mocked left and right, reality starts altering or outright breaking down because characters [[StatusQuoIsGod attempt to challenge the show's Status Quo]] and, as it turns out, [[spoiler:people and objects can disappear from existence by being sucked into a void-like dimension, because the ''universe itself'' judged them to be terrible ideas]]. Episodes like "The Kids", "The Safety", "The Money", "The Signal" and especially "The Disaster"/"The Rerun" all have in-universe characters or outside forces (voice actors, animation budget, signal interference, etc.) manipulating the TV medium itself or causing it to go haywire, leading to some very {{Mind Screw}}y plots.
