* In the ''Manga/IchigoMashimaro'' manga, Miu tries her hand at making a {{Shoujo}} manga herself. Her style is not that much inferior to the original, which is actually pretty good for a twelve-year old. Her storytelling leaves something to be desired, though.

* Depending on who you ask, the music video for {{Music/Journey}}'s "Separate Ways" may have been this. Steve Perry notoriously ''hated'' the medium of music videos, dismissing the bands popularized by them as "fashion music." So, when their label told them "make one or else," they aimed to make one so terrible that the record company would ''never'' ask again. [[SpringtimeForHitler The song ended up a hit instead.]]

* WebAnimation/JerryJackson is a thirteen year old boy who posts peurile, badly made flash animations on Newgrounds. Except that he's actually ''SaladFingers'' creator David Firth trolling the internet by being terrible on purpose.

** Orlando's love poetry in ''AsYouLikeIt'' also qualifies; Touchstone mocks it openly with his ''own'' Stylistic Suck parody.
* Creator/RichardWagner's ''Siegfried'' has a scene in which Siegfried tries to imitate a significant bird call by plucking a reed and playing on it. The sound heard is that of an out-of-tune English horn.

* The eponymous ShowWithinAShow from ''The Drowsy Chaperone'' goes into this territory frequently, most obviously in the song "Bride's Lament" in which the heroine compares her wayward groom to [[{{Metaphorgotten}} a monkey on a pedestal]]. {{It makes sense in|Context}}...actually, it really ''doesn't''; that's what makes it so funny.

* In ''Wonderful Town'', Ruth, in an effort to prove herself as a talented and sophisticated writer, leaves a pile of story manuscripts on a magazine editor's desk. Her stories, depicted in vignettes, include bad knock-offs of Hemingway ("For Whom the Lion Roars") and Dorothy Parker ("Exit Laughing"). (Creator/ComdenAndGreen were the real writers of these vignettes, though they were credited only for lyrics.)

* "Gliding Through My Memoree" Creator/RodgersAndHammerstein's ''Flower Drum Song'', with the transparently terrible attempt to pass off Chinese-American ChorusGirls as exotic beauties from Ireland, Sweden, etc.

* The opening of ''Anime/Gundam00AWakeningOfTheTrailblazer'' depicts a [[ShowWithinAShow Movie Within A Movie]] that recreates the events of the ''Anime/MobileSuitGundam00'' TV series...as a hammy, SuperRobot-esque affair that bears almost no resemblance to the actual show. Getting in on the gag, at least one fansub group gave the movie cheesy subtitles with different colored text for each character and several words left in Japanese with translation notes explaining what they mean and then saying there's no good English translation (a TakeThat against a certain fansub group that does this un-ironically).

* [=ChipCheezum=] and General Ironicus' LP of ''NoMoreHeroes'' had one video like this, specifically for a {{Crossover}} with WebVideo/{{Retsupurae}}. ItMakesSenseInContext... [[MindScrew no, it doesn't.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Parody animator Roger van der Weide, creator of ''WebAnimation/KingdumbHearts'' and numerous ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' parodies, animates pretty much all his videos in the same limited style, often accompanied by [[HeliumSpeech squeaky, high-pitched voices]]. Some of his earlier videos actually state in the loading screen that they're ''supposed'' to look terrible.

* Despite the fact that he's supposedly a best-selling and award-winning novelist, the extracts from Usagi's BoysLove novels in ''JunjouRomantica'' are full of PurpleProse and cliched dialogue; the ''Junai Romantica'' novels, which are [[{{Defictionalized}} supposedly the novels that he wrote]], are similarly prone to ClicheStorm and [[{{Uke}} weepy uke syndrome]], but are hilarious to read because of the mismatch between Usagi's fictionalized versions of the characters and how they really are.
