Some artists have been ''especially'' good at it (although, sadly, some of the best at it became so ''due'' to mental health or alcohol and drug problems...)

* By the time of ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies'', the prosecutors have realized that four games worth of already insane acts have put them in this situation via in-universe DarknessInducedAudienceApathy. As a result, they can do even more crazy stuff to win because nobody cares at that point.

[[Film/TheHangover (Also a tiger, apparently.)]] Even before boxing.[[/note]] And yes, Tyson did ''all'' of these things ''and more''.

* ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'':
** An episode about the {{Middle Eastern Terrorist|s}} group ISIS had John noting that they had become so outrageous in their actions/claims that people will believe anything about them.
** Another episode about the scandals that had plagued 2016 US Presidential candidates UsefulNotes/HillaryRodhamClinton and UsefulNotes/DonaldTrump had John making up a scandal about a "Swiss file transfer" to demonstrate how Clinton's trustworthiness (or lack thereof) had become such a joke that people would believe anything about her alleged shady dealings.
-->"And then there is the problematic issue of the Swiss File Transfer, and while, yes, investigators found that Hillary was in Zurich at the time of the transfer, and documents show she was aware the transfer took place, and yes, the Clintons did have something to gain financially from it, the fact is the Swiss File Transfer is something I just made up right now, but the very fact that for a second you kind of remembered it says something about the tone of coverage surrounding Clinton."
