* Creator/{{Lifetime}}'s 2014 television film ''Film/GrumpyCatsWorstChristmasEver'' is a ''purfect'' example of this trope in action.

* Music/DavidBowie, despite his notorious penchant for the NewSoundAlbum trope, has largely stayed ahead of the curves that come along in music and avoided accusations of trend-jumping, owing in part to both his ''strong'' CreatorThumbprint as a lyricist and his compelling stage presence. He was mocked in the British music press over 1997's ''Earthling'', though -- it was an intelligent drum 'n' bass-heavy album written by an artist who had just turned 50 years old.
* Music/MichaelJackson, according to producer Quincy Jones, didn't think rap music would catch on back in TheEighties. He still tried to cultivate an edgier, tough "street image" with 1987's ''Music/{{Bad}}'', specifically with the title song's music video (in which he plays a reformed gang member), but while the album sold well, his look and attitude were roundly mocked. From there, he struggled with this trope for the rest of his career, starting with 1991's ''Music/{{Dangerous}}''. He tried to update his sound with new jack swing, hip-hop, and rap stylings, hiring big-name producers and guest musicians in the process. ''Dangerous'' alone had guest spots from Heavy D, Wreckx-n-Effect, and [[Music/GunsNRoses Slash]], and the music videos featured trendy celebrities such as Macaulay Culkin, Iman, Creator/EddieMurphy, Magic Johnson, Naomi Campbell, UsefulNotes/MichaelJordan, and even [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Bart and Homer Simpson]] (which also explains that ''Simpsons'' episode where Jackson -- under the name John Jay Smith -- plays [[CelebrityParadox a mental patient who thinks he's Michael Jackson]]). Ten years later, David Browne commented in his ''Entertainment Weekly'' review of ''Invincible'' that Jackson "appears to be so lacking in confidence that he's top-loaded the album with every conceivable collaborator he could call, from Music/CarlosSantana and Babyface for the oldsters to Rodney Jerkins and rapper Fats for the kids."

* ''WesternAnimation/IceAgeContinentalDrift'' cast Nicki Minaj and Drake as characters just because the studio perceived them as being hip with the kids. It even has the characters dance along to a generic auto-tuned pop song in the end credits. Considering this is the fourth movie of a franchise that began in 2002, these elements can't help but feel like the filmmakers are falling into this.
