** And then there is the "[[SugarWiki/VisualEffectsOfAwesome Kawoosh]]". The original effect involved firing a jet engine into a pool and filming it underwater from a lot of angles to be reusable.

* ''Film/PacificRim'' built a fully functional Jaeger cockpit, mounted on hydraulics that would allow it to rotate, drop, and tilt to mimic the exterior behavior of the titanic mechs as they moved according to the actors' motions inside. Naturally this set was redressed into all four of the Jaeger cockpit interiors we see, with frequent shots of the actors performing an action before cutting to the CG robots mimicking it.

** Suberted in Clarkson's review of the BMW X6 in the final episode of Series 14, where he briefly visits exotic locations for rather trivial reasons in an episode strapped for cash! This includes visiting Spain to see if the handling is better (it isn't), Switzerland to see if the car can deal with snow (it can't), Hong Kong in search of a metaphor (an expensive skyscraper) and to Australia to see if the glovebox works upside down (it does)!

** Suberted Subverted in Clarkson's review of the BMW X6 in the final episode of Series 14, 14 (which they supposedly had run out of money for), where he briefly visits exotic locations for rather trivial reasons in an episode strapped for cash! This includes visiting Spain to see if the handling is better (it isn't), Switzerland to see if the car can deal with snow (it can't), Hong Kong in search of a metaphor (an expensive skyscraper) and to Australia to see if the glovebox works upside down (it does)!does)! In the same episode, Hammond's review extensively used gratuitous and costly CGI that served no real purpose in showing off his car's features. The [[BrickJoke end result]] is that the show James had no budget for his segment and had to cobble together a segment that was mostly him having tea with the woman who invented the modern road sign.

** Inverted on his last couple of weeks on NBC, where he presented a series of one-off sketches supposedly constructed to be as expensive as possible to the network such as "Purchased fossil of a ground sloth from the Smithsonian spraying an original Picasso with beluga caviar." Generally, these sketches featured obvious fakes or donated loaners.

Generally, these sketches featured obvious fakes or donated loaners. The music for these segments, on the other hand, all had impossibly high royalty payments and was specifically selected to screw with the network since a single clip could end up costing NBC tens of thousands of dollars should it ever be rerun. This is part of the reason why O'Brien's NBC run has been more or less locked away forever.

''Please'' do not confuse with MoneyMakingShot. Also this trope has nothing to do with using cash [[MoneyToThrowAway as ammo]] or pumping stacks of bills full of lead.

** Justified somewhat in that the effects seen in the movie were done by John Dykstra and Douglas Trumbull in a huge rush after the special effects firm originally hired failed to produce anything remotely usable after a year's effort. At the last minute someone from Paramount decided that since the studio had spent so much money on the effects, they should be front and center in the movie.
** Further justified by the ''Enterprise'' sets having originally been built for the SequelSeries project that became the movie after ''Film/StarWarsEpisodeIV'' came out. Since they would never be used for a weekly TV series, the script was written to take full advantage of them as they were struck after production wrapped and never reused.

** The production team actually traveled to Paris for [[Recap/DoctorWhoS17E2CityOfDeath "City of Death", the first time a ''Series/DoctorWho'' story was shot outside of Britain. Most of the story was set in Paris anyway, but the director made sure to include gratuitous shots of the Doctor and Romana walking around Parisian locations in the first episode. Less effective use was made of Amsterdam in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS20E1ArcOfInfinity "Arc of Infinity"]], but in [[Recap/DoctorWhoS21E5PlanetofFire "Planet of Fire"]] the island of Lanzarote doubled as itself and as an alien planet.
