* One of the pieces of clothing torn apart in the [[WebVideo/HydraulicPressChannel Beyond the Press]] channel video "How much can you lift with clothes?" is a large black t-shirt that rips very fashionably along the side and back. The host jokes that he and his wife will be going to Paris Fashion Week with it while he watches her twirl and pose for the camera with the shirt over the top she was already wearing. However, a number of comments pointed out that a torn, oversized t-shirt like that, worn over a brightly colored top with some fashionably torn jeans would work as an actual outfit.

* In the DisneyChannel MadeForTVMovie ''Susie Q'', the title character, who is a ghost, is seeking the attention of the one boy who can see her. However, he is distracted by a girl in a short skirt. Thinking she knows where his interest lies (and forgetting that she's InvisibleToNormals), Susie tears her Pimped Out Prom Dress until it becomes basically a skirt and halter top.
