'''Basic Trope''': The work in question is really bizarre, bizarre enough that the audience suspects that the creator was [[ArtisticStimulation writing under the influence of some substance]]. The creator wasn't using anything at all, or at least denies it.
* '''Straight''': Alice is the creator of a strange TV series that Bob insists ''had'' to be made while high. Alice proves not to do any drugs at all; her mind just works that way.
* '''Exaggerated''': Alice made a work that seems straight out of an acid trip/''Film/{{Zardoz}}'' (is there a difference?). She is a devout and observant Mormon.
* '''Downplayed''': Alice was drunk when coming up with the premise, but sober during the actual creation.
* '''Justified''':
** Alice has Schizophrenia.
** The references Alice used, such as random thoughts that she got or her (self-admittedly) strange fetishes, were all able to be twisted and intertwined carefully into the media that causes the question to be asked.
** Alice thinks of things differently is all.

* '''Zig Zagged''': The TV show is weird from the start, but initially Alice doesn't use drugs. She goes a bit insane from her fame and starts taking drugs to cope with the insanity. Ironically, the show gets a little more normal. She gets better and quits drugs, but the show gets crazier when she quits.
