* In the ''Fanfic/EmpathTheLuckiestSmurf'' adaptation "The Smurf Impersonators", during the part of the story where Gargamel disguises himself as a Smurf, he tries to tell Sassette that he has been working on doing a perfect Gargamel impersonation to explain why he sounds like Gargamel. Sassette simply tells him that he doesn't sound quite as menacing as the real Gargamel.

* ''WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic'': In "Stranger Than Fan Fiction", Rainbow Dash and Quibble Pants get kidnapped by Dr. Caballeron.

* A famous example is on ''Series/WillAndGrace'' when Jack finally meets his idol, Cher...and immediately dismisses her as just "some drag queen." When she tries to prove it's her with singing, Jack gives her tips with an over-the-top Cher impression. She finally slaps him in the face and yells "Snap out of it!" and when Jack realizes he just insulted his beloved idol, he faints.

* An episode of ''Series/StargateSG1'' involves a ShowWithinAShow called ''Wormhole X-Treme!'' that was a low-budged knock-off of the actual show. During the episode, the crew complains that the script calls for a spaceship to appear during the episode but that the budget doesn't allow for that. At the end, the crew is filming outside, when an actual massive starship descends through the clouds and hovers right above them. The camera guy is told to film it. At the end, two crew members discuss how fake the ship looked and mentioning that they'll fix it in post.

Added DiffLines:

* As part of his act, the Russian comedian Maxim Galkin occasionally includes a (possibly apocryphal) story about his friends and fellow celebrities Music/FilippKirkorov and Music/AllaPugacheva. According to him, the three of them were in an elevator, when a couple of obviously provincial visitors entered. The ride down was totally silent with the couple staring at the three celebrities. Just before exiting, the guy smiled and pointed at Galkin, telling him that he looks like the original the most, leaving Kirkorov and Pugacheva in shock.

* In ''First Drop of Crimson'' in the ''Literature/NightHuntress'' series, [[spoiler:Mencheres is forced to turn Kira into a vampire]], and the villain deliberately leaks video of this, which ends up on the news and Youtube. Youtube commenters, being a special brand of stupid and horrible, post such gems as "Worst actress ever," "Should have had more blood," and "WTF is up with the lame glowing eyes?"

Added DiffLines:

* An auditory instead of a visual example, but voice actor Creator/TomokazuSugita once did an impression of ''Manga/{{Gintama}}'' for some relatives' children. The kids [[http://www.kitakubu.co/2015/03/kids-tell-sugita-tomokazu-he-doesnt-sound-like-gintamas-gintoki/ complained that he didn't sound like Gintoki at all.]] Sugita tweeted about it to fellow voice actress Creator/SumireUesaka, who more or less referenced this trope.
