* In a similar vein, [[TonyHawksProSkater Tony Hawk]], the [[ManChild world's oldest teenager]]. He's still one of the go-to sports celebs for being "rebel" and "extreme" and "edgy", when the man has more games under his name than there are versions of StreetFighter. Also applies to a skating gang in American Wasteland. They believe that wearing shirts and shoes supports corporations, yet pants are fine. Not to mention that every member of the gang (except the player character) has a skateboard advertising the game itself!

* ''Music/KatyPerry'' sang "Chained to the Rhythm", a song against corporate-influenced conformity, among other things. Sung by one of the biggest pop stars of the decade, featuring the grandson of [[Music/BobMarley the most marketed and merchandised Caribbean musician in history]], backed by an extensive guerrilla marketing campaign. Oh, and the song was co-written by Music/{{Sia}}, who's herself a popular, highly marketable singer and songwriter. The song was a smash hit, of course.

* Creator/MichealMoore claimed in ''Capitalism: A Love Story''that this will always happen even going so far as to say capitalists will sell you the rope you intend to hang them with. Ironically ''Capitalism: A Love Story'' kinda of disproved that statement when smaller theaters refused to screen it because they were worried its message might convince customers not to come back. As a result the film bombed.

* Pretty much all of Music/{{Kiss}}'s music has become this over time. Sure, back in the 70s, when everyone thought they were pure evil, their message of partying, living their lives however they want and being the badasses who didn't care what everyone thought was good, but now, they're rich beyond measure and they've always been open about being money first (which is a part of their narmy charm, seeing as it gives us things like the Kiss Kasket and toothbrushes that play Detroit Rock City while you brush that [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids are marketed at kids]]), it just makes the lyrics of songs like ''Flaming Youth'' and ''Rock N Roll All Nite'' ring hollow.
