* The Sucklord (born Morgan Phillips), a New York-based pop artist, manufactures unlicensed action figures that are styled after cheap bootlegs. “Instead of hiding and glossing over the suck factor, I decided to market it as a feature of the product,” the Sucklord said in an interview.

* In the ''Fanfic/PonyPOVSeries'', General-Admiral Makarov, the BigBad of the Shining Armor Arc, has a VillainSong simply called "[[http://fav.me/d6v6jrl Makarov]]". According to the song writer, it was intentionally written worse than his normal work, being more of a straight rip-off of the song it was based on as opposed to his other works, to reflect the fact Makarov is a ParodySue who has next to no imagination of his own. InUniverse, Shining Armor zones out part way through because of how bad it is, resulting in only part of the song being used in the story.

A ShowWithinAShow or other MetaFiction by a character inside another story is often presented in an inferior writing style (for obvious reasons, it's a bit difficult to do it the other way around -- if the writer could do better, then he would presumably use that as his baseline, unless it's using the first person). [[BadBadActing The most conspicuous aspect of this is in terms of dialog, in which one can expect the characters to speak in a stilted, mechanical tone for no apparent reason at all.]] The [[HerCodenameWasMarySue main character often is an obvious stand-in for the fictional author.]]

This can serve to distinguish the nested story from the main one, or to demonstrate the limited skills or intellect of the character who writes it. Alternatively, a ''really'' inferior writing style, presented right, can provide SoBadItsGood comic effect.

TheresNoBInMovie is related, though in that case the focus is on the audience of the ShowWithinAShow rather than on its writer. If the material is not horrible, merely so-so, but is ''supposed'' to be awesome, it's an InformedAbility. See also RuleOfFunny.

Alternatively, the show itself may have Stylistic Suck instead.

* A meta-example in RedDeadWitchdemptionByJohnEgbert. John Egbert is trying to write a crossover fanfic, and is doing a terrible job at it.

* A meta-example in RedDeadWitchdemptionByJohnEgbert. ''Fanfic/RedDeadWitchdemptionByJohnEgbert''. John Egbert is trying to write a crossover fanfic, and is doing a terrible job at it.it.
* ''WebAnimation/{{Ducktalez}}'' is a series of Flash movies parodying ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales''. The first episode was released in 2003, and in the time between that and the latest episode in 2013, the designs for the ''Ducktales'' characters has remained just as crappy (aside from being made into 3D in later episodes) in a self-referential parody of itself. It utilizes the same amateurish, [[LimitedAnimation static]] character designs for the ''WesternAnimation/{{Ducktales}}'' characters from the first episode through the seventh, which stands out compared to other characters like [[Anime/DragonBallZ Vegeta]], who, by episode 7, was animated in professional looking CG.
* [=ZXInsanity=] et al's parody series of the ''[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyEquestriaGirls Equestria Girls]]'' movies, known as ''WebAnimation/{{EQUESTRIA GIRLS}}'' (capitalization intentional), is full of this. Characters are animated as if invisible hands are manipulating dolls... which is fitting considering the actual purpose of ''Equestria Girls''. The main characters are all low resolution model poses from the very first batch of leaked images. All other characters are fanmade vectors (the art quality of most of them is poor). Everything else is stock clipart. Facial expressions are either nonexistent or obviously edited in MS Paint. And all the voices are computer-generated text-to-speech programs, mostly from Website/GoAnimate.
* ''WebVideo/YuGiOhTheAbridgedSeries'' had an episode in which Tristan watches ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedSeries'', that has nothing but Naruto telling Sasuke he is an emo over and over again. This was actually a cooperative effort between creator of both shows, as a TakeThat against people who thinks that calling somebody emo makes a good joke.
* The "animation" from Episode 8 of ''WebVideo/SgtFrogAbridged''.
* In ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedComedyFandubSpoofSeriesShow'', Iruka makes an [[TheAbridgedSeries abridgement]] of ''Manga/OnePiece'' that features horrific image quality (blatantly filming a Website/YouTube-sourced overly-literal fansub with a mobile phone), no attempt at voice acting, and a script that primarily relies on repetition, MemeticMutation and gay jokes.

* ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'' had one in-universe example, [[http://youtu.be/3YqV3EoQ748?t=4m53s the Lopez love song]]. The Blues performed and broadcasted it to force the Reds to shut of their Radios. According to Sarge, "It sounds like the feral cry of a retarded Mexican sasquatch!"
** Lopez in general is a good example--he can only speak Spanish, but it's ''terrible'' Spanish. By all accounts, this is entirely intentional by his voice actor, Burnie.
** Another example are the deliberately terrible special effects in the machinima portions for the sake of comedy, where various objects have quite obviously been added in after the fact. Of special note is that certain additions (Donut's housewarming gift, the pile of stuff Blue Team won from the Reds, etc.) originally looked too good and had to be made worse!
* Many, many ''VideoGame/GarrysMod'' {{Machinima}}. Characters are capable of fairly realistic animation and facial movement (and in ''Machinima/TheGModIdiotBox'''s case, well-done stop-motion animation,) but why bother when [[RagdollPhysics wild ragdoll flailing]] and deranged, physically impossible expressions are so much funnier?
* ''WebAnimation/AFatherSonStory'' relates a soul-crushing tale of murder, secrets, lies, and infidelity that rip a family to pieces... animated in Website/GoAnimate.
* The ''CGI Palz!'' episodes of ''WebAnimation/TwoMoreEggs'' parodies early attempts of using CGI in cartoons.
* Creator/EmilyYoucis uses the Microsoft Voice Sam to voice George Bush in the ''[[WebAnimation/AlfredAlferShorts Alfred Christmas special]]'', among using bad jokes in general.

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U9z2FYfuwpI& This]] ''VideoGame/MegaMan4'' let's play featuring off-sync, offensive commentary, bad video and sound quality, unskilled gameplay and bad screen capturing.
* "Crumbling Centurion", a {{troll}}[=/=]parody who initially pretended to be a ''LetsPlay/DeceasedCrab'' hater, with his "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PJbMy-JJC9Y LETS PLAY MININGCRAFT]]". Deliberately horrible recording quality (using a camera to record the video off the computer screen), misinformation and lag...
-->minecraft is a game where you take blocks and then make other blocks and then make a mine or a house out of blocks it is very fun
* LetsPlay/{{Chuggaaconroy}}'s VideoGame/MegaMan 2 [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=prTTCt2CwC8 LP]]. Made for April Fools 2009 as a parody of crappy Mega Man [=LPs=] on Website/YouTube.
* [=ChipCheezum=] and General Ironicus' LP of ''VideoGame/NoMoreHeroes'' had one video like this, specifically for a {{Crossover}} with WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}. ItMakesSenseInContext... [[MindScrew no, it doesn't.]]
* In ''LetsPlay/TacoMan Plays VideoGame/MarioPaint'', Taco-Man produces a cartoon which boasts more amateurish animation and voice acting (provided by Mike Peterson rather than Sam T. Nelson) than normal Taco-Man cartoons. This carried into three other shorts. Also, in the live Halloween specials, [[spoiler:this incarnation of Taco-Man visits the normal Taco-Man while trick-or-treating, much to the latter's confusion.]]
* [[LetsPlay/VanossGamingAndCompany H2ODelirious]] deliberately uses a low-quality microphone because he finds his voice to sound weird when using a higher-quality one.

* Whenever the Fish And Bicycle Theatre group pop up in ''Comicbook/YTheLastMan'', their productions are like this: a play about a man surviving the {{Gendercide}} (and later dying because the world doesn't need him any more), an action movie, a comic book called ''X: The Last Woman''. All {{Anvilicious}} and pretentious.

The filmmakers appear to agree with that last point, since he's a clear parody of Bill in the film.

Hipstamatic are iOS apps that apply filters to the pictures they shoot to replicate wonky optics, aged film, and other characteristics of old film cameras to produce pictures that look like old Polaroids and the like; they in turn were inspired by the current popularity of {{Retraux}} cameras, particularly cheap film cameras like Russia's Lomo or China's Holga, whose notoriously crappy build quality and quirky optics create uniquely random effects in the finished pictures. On top of that, many camera companies (particularly Canon and Sony) have included "toy camera" modes that attempt to duplicate the same effects to compete with the phone apps. (Ironically, the starting picture quality of most digital cameras on the market since about 2009 means that it's actually nearly impossible to get the photos to look bad enough in camera. For truly godawful quality out of a cheap digital camera, you need Photoshop.)

* Instagram and Hipstamatic are iOS apps that apply filters to the pictures they shoot to replicate wonky optics, aged film, and other characteristics of old film cameras to produce pictures that look like old Polaroids and the like; they in turn were inspired by the current popularity of {{Retraux}} cameras, particularly cheap film cameras like Russia's Lomo or China's Holga, whose notoriously crappy build quality and quirky optics create uniquely random effects in the finished pictures. On top of that, many camera companies (particularly Canon and Sony) have included "toy camera" modes that attempt to duplicate the same effects to compete with the phone apps. (Ironically, the starting picture quality of most digital cameras on the market since about 2009 means that it's actually nearly impossible to get the photos to look bad enough in camera. For truly godawful quality out of a cheap digital camera, you need Photoshop.)
* The card game "We Didn't Playtest This At All". Lots of instant win and instant lose cards, all played for laughs.
* One explanation given for poorly-written scam emails: Those which are well-written might "accidentally" snare people who would waste time before later backing out. The badly written email filters out all but people who would believe nearly anything.
** Or else to provoke people who aren't as clever as they think they are to respond ''correcting'' the errors or snarking about their grammatical superiority. This way the scammers know they have a live email address together with useful data about the sender. [[note]]Those ''mom from (your town in England where nobody calls female parents "mom" and the US dollar is not national currency) makes $4137 dollars a day!!!" sidebar adverts are not as ill-edited, stupid, or amateurish as they look.[[/note]]
* The YouTube channel "Really3D" consists of 3D animations that fit this trope, such as [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rfJ9W9A6NrQ&list=WL&index=94 this 20th Century Fox logo parody]].
* There are several programming languages designed to be as obtuse as possible - Examples include [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/INTERCAL INTERCAL]] and the dreaded [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malbolge Malbolge]]
* The "[[http://www.razzies.com/ Golden Raspberry Awards]]" (or "Razzies"), an annual cinematic awards show for "worst in film", are intentionally played up to be a legitimate awards show but with the feel of an Oscar-night knockoff, according to creator John Wilson:
-->'''Wilson:''' [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/6392701.stm We copy the look of a traditional awards show, but the show is deliberately low-end and tacky.]]
* The 2012 commercials for the Toyota Yaris are made to look like they had NoBudget. The spokesman has trouble projecting and stumbles on his lines, the script is tacky, and overall it looks like a live weather report where the speaker and the special effects guy aren't in sync. Now combine all that with OurSloganIsTerrible and OurProductSucks, for a final result of "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiWPXRb1eOY Toyota Yaris]]: [[CaptainObvious It's a car!]]"

* The Stephen Glass scandal, dramatized in ''Film/ShatteredGlass'', got subject to this. In trying to cover the tracks to hide evidence of fabrication in his "Hack Heaven" piece, Glass created an amateur AOL webpage and tried to pass it off as the official site of the fictitious "Jukt Micronics". The movie ended up using [[http://i.forbesimg.com/images/1998/05/11/capture.gif the actual page Glass created in real life,]] as no Hollywood exaggeration of its ineptitude was needed. Even though the scandal broke in the relatively early days of businesses adopting the Internet as a tool, even by those standards it was still bad; Adam Penenberg, one of the ''Forbes Digital'' reporters who was responsible for first exposing Glass's fabrication -- and someone who would know a little something about the Internet back then -- was incredulous that this could the website of a supposedly bigtime software company.

* An episode of the ''[[Anime/KirbyOfTheStars Kirby]]'' anime features this hilariously ShowWithinAShow where Dedede tries to make an anime, recruiting more or less the entire cast to do the work. Between ExecutiveMeddling, a ridiculously tight schedule and low budget, and most of the staff having no idea what they're doing (especially Kirby), it starts out as a parody of the show itself and gets very steadily worse. [[HilarityEnsues And funnier]].

** Most of ONE's work is like this, as both the original comics for One-Punch Man and {{Manga/MobPsycho100}} are drawn in a deliberately sloppy and amateurish style, allowing them to not only fit a much more comedic tone, but to make it much more impressive when the action, and [[ArtShift ONE's art]] get more serious.
