** C+C's record label tried to refute the charges by having Davis perform the song live (most notably on "The Aresenio Hall Show"). [[NotHelpingYourCase It backfired spectacularly]]: Davis' thin, reedy voice sounded nothing like the voice on the song, strengthening Wash's case that much more.

* ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' had a video of "Yummy Yummy Yummy" performed on a ''Top of the Pops''-style set by Jackie Charlton and the Tonettes. The band members are implied to be hidden inside packing crates, which the camera dramatically pans around as if it were a PerformanceVideo.

* Music/MumfordAndSons' video for "Hopeless Wanderer" ''looks'' like a typical "band performing the song in an appropriate natural setting" video at first glance, but either their backs are to the camera, or their faces are blurred out by lens flare and other techniques. Eventually, it becomes apparent that comic actors Jason Sudeikis, Ed Helms, Jason Bateman, and Will Forte are standing in for the actual band members, make the video a form of SelfDeprecation on the band's part as they proceed to [[LargeHam ham it up]] by getting a little ''too'' into their emotional performance of the song.

* Although EltonJohn is normally very visible in his videos, and is overall very performance-oriented, for the video "I Want Love", RobertDowneyJr. lip synchs the song. Similarly, JustinTimberlake portrays a younger Elton (with an eerie resemblance to the real thing, circa 1975) in the clip for "This Train Don't Stop There Anymore".

* Similar to the Milli Vanilli and C+C examples, Technotronic's ''Pump up the Jam'' album cover and music videos substituted Zairean model Felly for the real female vocalist Ya Kid K, due to her appearing too tomboyish..

** A similar, albeit less publicized, scandal befell BoneyM, Frank Farian's other famous band, when it was revealed that the lead male vocals were performed not by Bobby Ferrell, the purported male lead in concert, but by Farian himself.

* Mega-example: the band {{Gorillaz}} has ''never'' appeared as the band in public. There are effectively two versions of the band - the animated characters presented as "Gorillaz", and [[Music/{{Blur}} Damon Albarn]], TomTomClub and the group of unknowns that actually records the music. Performances tend to hide the musicians behind screens, showing them only in silhouette.

* The UsefulNotes/ComicRelief version of "Is This The Way To Amarillo?" It's not even a cover version; it's a Tony Christie re-release with a video in which PeterKay pretends to be singing.
