* Music/DaftPunk's "Da Funk" music video follows Charles, a dog-man with a broken leg and a broken boombox that keeps blaring the song in question, as he walks through New York City at night. Though he's polite to everyone he meets along the way, he's generally treated brusquely by everyone he meets, and even when he has a pleasant conversation with a childhood friend named Beatrice who invites him to dinner, he can't follow her onto the bus because boomboxes aren't allowed. A few videos later, Charles returned (sans boombox or broken leg) for "Fresh" - he still has the same pleasant demeanor, but now he's a successful film actor with a CoolCar who's going out with Beatrice.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures'' fanfic ''Fanfic/QueenOfAllOni'' (part of ''Fanfic/ProjectDarkJade''), [[VillainProtagonist Jade]] ends up hiring the Enforcers, and [[BenevolentBoss pays them regular wages (at one point, they mock the heroes by saying it's more than Section 13 pays them), and even when she fires them she gives them severance pay and all their belongings]].

* In 2009-19, Music/LouReed decided to make a tour inspired by ''Music/MetalMachineMusic'', meaning over an hour of [[SensoryAbuse droning sounds]] in lieu of music. [[AudienceAlienatingPremise Naturally, the concerts were full of boos and walkouts]], but the two gigs in Brazil had Reed doing something to reward whoever was left for an encore [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5gn8BVELeM by actually singing]].



** Wonder Woman ''finally'' getting to appear in a live-action film after years of the movie project going nowhere - especially considering that Warner Bros. executives were on the fence about letting her have a movie, leading to the now infamous Tweet from Brett White about how DC didn't want to do Wonder Woman because it was too confusing, while Marvel was working on ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy'', which has a raccoon using machine guns. Taken even further once it was confirmed that she would be getting a standalone film before Marvel could release [[Film/CaptainMarvel a female-led movie]].

* Creator/LeonardoDiCaprio was, for the longest time, victim to a [[MemeticMutation legendary]] AwardSnub, having never won an Oscar despite many well-received roles. Come the 2016 Academy Awards, however, and the unthinkable occured - he finally got the Oscar his fans feel he deserved.

* If Leo only scoring an Oscar in his sixth attempt was deemed painful, imagine how it went for both acclaimed cinematographer Roger Deakins (only in his fourteenth, ''Film/BladeRunner2049'') and sound mixer Kevin O'Connell (his ''twentieth'', ''Film/HacksawRidge'').

** Speaking of Los Conquistadores, they were one of the last two teams remaining at the WWF's 1988 SurvivorSeries, lasting 42 minutes before falling to the newly-turned-heel Powers of Pain. While they were mercilessly beaten on by the face team every time they were in the ring, they somehow survived until the very end.

* The Advertising/TrixRabbit is occasionally given a chance to actually ''try'' the cereal depending on the outcome of a poll. People vote for him to get it ''every time'', and by now you would think the company would get that people [[TheWoobie really feel sorry for the guy]] and hate those [[CerealViceReward greedy kids]].

** Of course the audience is supposed to sympathize with the rabbit--they're supposed to want the cereal as bad as he does.
*** The message seems to be that the audience is supposed to sympathize with the kids, and feel ridiculously entitled to their cereal, thus becoming more insistent on buying it. Unfortunately, most kids seem to have a moral core that rates "don't be a jackass animal abuser" above "I deserve cereal because the kids become jackass animal abusers for it." Score one for basic human decency.
*** There have been a small number of ads where he did actually get to eat the cereal -- One of them is found [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y9wrx8YHH8A Here]]. In another, he tastes it, goes into his usual "description" monologue, and looks up to see that [[YankTheDogsChain the bowl is now empty]].

* A priceless [[SuperBowlSpecial Super Bowl]] Coke commercial where Macy Balloons of [[WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy Stewie]] and WesternAnimation/{{Underdog}} are fighting (aka bumping into each other) in order to get that balloon of a Coke bottle.
