* A Twix commercial featured a guy trying to hit on a SoapboxSadie type, asking if she'd like to go back to his place and blog about their ideals. One gets the strong impression that the guy who wrote the commercial has no idea what blogging is.

* Creator/{{Lifetime}}'s 2014 television film ''Film/GrumpyCatsWorstChristmasEver'' is a ''perfect'' (or shall we say, ''{{pu|n}}rrfect''?) example of this trope in action.

* Music/{{Rush}} fell victim to this in the eyes of [[VocalMinority certain subsets of fans]] after their ''Moving Pictures'' album, which [[ToughActToFollow just also happened to be generally regarded as the peak of their career]]. Though their initial foray into popular '80s synth technology, ''Signals'', was well-received, the drastically slicker and more melodramatic sounds they utilized on the following three releases gave a strong impression of the band conforming to the style of Top 40 pop music at the time. Even when they ditched the emphasis on synthesizers at the end of the decade, they placed a heavy emphasis on funk and other "urban" influences (most infamously the rap breakdown in "Roll the Bones") for their singles—at a time when many other popular acts were doing the same thing. And it ''definitely'' didn't help when they went for a DarkerAndEdgier sound rooted in heavy guitar distortion when ''[[{{Grunge}} that]]'' sort of thing became the popular music norm ("Stick it Out" and "Driven" are especially obvious genre emulation grabs). It would be the release of ''Vapor Trails'' that finally marked the end of the band's two decade-long trend-following focus.

* Music/{{Megadeth}}'s 2001 album ''The World Needs A Hero'' is a textbook example of this trope. After unsuccessfully trying to appeal to pop/alternative music fans with 1999's ''Risk'', [=TWNAH=] was hyped as a [[WinBackTheCrowd return to the thrash metal stylings the band became famous for.]] While it at least delivered on the promise of being heavier than Risk, it ended up sounding like a bland and tired version of their mid-90's heavy metal rather than the amazing thrash metal of albums like ''Rust In Peace''. The album's biggest indicator of the band's desperation, however, came from its inclusion of a vastly inferior sequel to their SignatureSong "Hangar 18" called "Return To Hangar." Fortunately, the band more-or-less had their true WinBackTheCrowd moment after frontman Dave Mustaine's TenMinuteRetirement with 2004's ''The System Has Failed''.

* ''WebVideo/RedLetterMedia'' mocks the trailer for ''Film/Zookeeper'' for using the song "Low" by ''Music/TPain'' in 2011, after its heyday in 2007. They speculated that the film will likely reference things like MySpace as well, all while thinking the trailer was meant to be a parody.
