* CarlHiaasen's ''Nature Girl'' has two characters who went through this. One is a woman who was mistress to a man who killed his wife and ended up in a high-profile murder trial, which led to a sensationalised ghost-written book on her story for which she gained half a million dollars and a stockbroker boyfriend who recommended investing it in Enron; two years later, she had lost it all and was working at a bottom-feeding telemarketing company. The other is the mother of another character, whose many disappointments in life include her father cashing in his pension to invest it all in the Delorian Motor Company, leaving nothing to pass to his daughter.

* At the end of ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'', Kraglin gives Starlord a Zune [[spoiler:to replace his destroyed Walkman]]. Starlord, amazed that it can hold ''hundreds'' of songs, says that it's going to revolutionize the way we listen to music. He's right, in a way, but the Zune didn't last too long. Played doubly strong here: not only do we, the audience, know that Zunes were crushed by Apple's iPod, but anyone living on Earth at the time of the movie could tell him the same thing (it takes place in 2014).

* In ''Film/SLCPunk'', a punk proudly shows off his hyper-new laser disc player and explains what it is. Laser discs never caught on.
