* Ebaumsworld's game ''Avalanche'' routinely dishes out insults when you lose, one of which is "Your village called. They want their idiot back." {{Manga/Dramacon}} used a variation of this for a T-shirt: "Your village called. They want their cosplayer back."
* In ''Videogame/JojosBizarreAdventureAllStarBattle'' Josuke Higashikata (from part 4, [[NamesTheSame not the other one]]) has a counter move where, if he gets hit while fixing his hair, a small cutscene will play with his opponent insulting his hairstyle. A few characters have insults that fit this trope, but Okuyasu's insult in the English version fits the best.
-->'''Okuyasu:''' Nice Haircut! Welcome to, like, 20 years ago!
-->'''Josuke:''' [[BerserkButton The Hell did you say about my hair!?]]

* In ''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/443175 Fight or Flyte]]'' after Loki makes an overly obscure reference to floppy disks while bantering, Tony retorts with "Ha! Nineteen eighty-five called, they want their joke back. And their bad hair."

** This one got an added level of Meta pretty quickly. By the next superbowl the company was in such dire straights, partly from spending millions to run this commercial during the SuperBowl, that they had to close thousands of stores in an attempt to prevent total collapse after filing for bankruptcy. ''The 80's actually took it back with them'', and now it's gone.

* ''TabletopGame/TheSmallFolk'' invokes the trope in its prelude fiction, thus acknowledging that some of the popular subcultures parodied by the game's "cliques" are a little dated.
-->“The sixties and the nineties called and they want their dialogue back,” said a third voice.

* In ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'', using this phrase will literally send Y back to X. The whole plot of the episode was that Mordecai and Rigby, the lead characters, have cell phones from the 1980s. When they get a call that says, "The '80s called, they want their cell phones back!", since the two were holding the phone, they went back to the '80s. This was used at the end of the episode, where the two call their boss and (since they now know it's possible,) send the recliner he's sitting in back to the 1970s.
