* 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.

* 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. Many characters have insults that fit this trope, but Okuyasu's insult in the English version fits the best.

** 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.
