** Once the Twelfth Doctor debuted his new costume in "The Magician's Apprentice", millions of fans immediately wanted the graphic t-shirt that he wears under his suit jacket. As soon as it was positively identified -- as a Label Lab "Misty Mountain" design -- fans dog-piled on House of Fraser, the online apparel store that sold it. It took less than a month for all of the Misty Mountain shirts to sell out. As of this writing, they're almost impossible to find.

* Inversion: Australian TV show ''Series/KathAndKim'' decreased the popularity of chardonnay. Having it drunk by two of the least classy middle-class women in all of Melbourne, one of whom pronounces it "card-donnay", might have something to do with it.

** The books feature a magical beverage called "butterbeer", which people in real life have been wanting to try. A beverage of that name ''did'' exist in the Tudor era, but in recent years everybody seems to have his own recipe for it -- including ''The Wizarding World of Harry Potter'' in Ride/UniversalStudios Orlando.

* The Roland [=TB-303=] bass line synthesizer[=/=]sequencer was introduced in 1982, but didn't sell too well and production was ceased two years after its introduction. By the end of TheEighties, the price of a used machine had fallen from its original price of $400 to under $100. Some machines were bought for next to nothing by Chicago [=DJs=], who invented[[HouseMusic Acid House]] on it by tweaking the sound generator while a sequence runs. When the genre became popular in the early [[TheNineties Nineties]], the [=TB-303=] was so in-demand and sought-after, that its value had risen to multiple times its original price.

* Another {{Grunge}} reference, the "grunge" look: really unkempt hair and thrift store, especially flannel, clothing became popular after the mainstream success of various grunge bands. However, many of these bands were wearing them not to create a fad but because they were the warmest clothes they could afford. In fact the "look" becoming a fad annoyed many grunge artists, because they were playing in their everyday clothes in deliberate contrast to the excessive flashiness of 80's bands.

* The Roland [=TB-303=] bass line synthesizer/sequencer was introduced in 1982 as a bassist stand-in for guitarists, much like drum computers were drummer surrogates. It didn't sell too well, so production was ceased in 1984 already, and the last 303s were sold for dirt cheap (its original price was about $400). By the end of TheEighties, the 303's worth was down to a two-digit amount of dollars. Some of those that hadn't been disposed of already were bought for next to nothing by UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}-based [=DJs=] and musicians who then discovered the potential of the little silver box and invented [[HouseMusic Acid House]] on it by tweaking the sound generator while a sequence runs.

** Pretty much the same applies to analog synthesizers in general which were almost worthless during the beginning digital boom in the late 80s and grew outrageously expensive after they helped make and popularize new electronic dance music styles only a few years later.

** The famous true story of the Akita Inu ''UsefulNotes/{{Hachiko}}'' and his two movies (one Japanese and one American), or the anime ''Anime/GingaNagareboshiGin'' where the breed is portrayed as nothing but a kind and heroic dog might easily lead some viewers on in wanting their own Akita puppy. While the breed is indeed known for their bravery and loyalty, the Akita can also be quite challenging to train and thus should only be cared for by an experienced owner, or the breed might turn out aggressive otherwise.
