* ''Series/TheThickOfIt'' : probably happened a few times, but one crowning example was the episode where they arranged a big announcement about a new policy only for the policy to get the shaft while everyone was already on their way. So they ended up literally making a "there is no big announcement" announcement criticizing the press for only paying attention when there was a big announcement. It worked perfectly: not a single line about it was written. Then to ice the cake, the PM changed his mind on the policy and the press officers had to call the press "in case they hadn't noticed" what the announcement had been about.

* ''Series/TheATeam'' From driving a garbage truck through the wall of a Mob-boss' club (and dumping the contents on the floor), to turning a forklift into a tank that shoots lumber, to fashioning a hot-air balloon out of a vacuum-cleaner and trash-bags to break out of prison, all of the A-Team's plans go like this. As explained in-universe "Hannibal's plans never work like they're supposed to. They just work."

* ''FatherTed'' has the episode "Kicking Bishop Brennan up the Arse". Due to a bet Father Ted has to do exactly that, and eventually Dougal suggests this plan: Kick him, then pretend ''nothing happened'', because the bishop would never believe he would dare do it. The bishop spends the next several hours in a state of near catatonic shock before realizing what happened and storming out of the Vatican and back to Craggy Island, at which point Ted still manages to convince him that he must have imagined it until he sees the giant photograph of Ted doing it that he had drunkenly commissioned.

* ''Series/LawAndOrder''. A mother confessed to murdering her infant daughter. The legal aid attorney assigned to her, his first murder case, starts pulling the most audacious stunts ever pulled by someone who isn't Jack. His opening statement: "My client didn't do it, it was God." In chambers, he then changes the plea to not guilty by reason of mental defect, then protests his own ignorance when told that such a plea requires 60 days notice. Then he tells the judge that, if this change isn't allowed, that his client will have grounds to appeal based on incompetent council, saying he'll write up an affidavit enumerating the 12 grievous errors he's already committed.

** In ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': There is an upcoming social with a boring senior officer who is infamous for his small talk, but everyone in the senior Bridge crew feel obliged to bite their tongues and prepare to endure him. Suddenly, Worf outright asks to be excused, and Captain Picard gives him permission. [=LaForge=], seeing that TheCaptain apparently doesn't mind people asking, immediately starts to request permission himself, but Picard cuts him off, saying "Mr. [=LaForge=], I cannot excuse me entire senior staff." Then, with an amused expression, he adds, "Mr. Worf beat you to it." At that, Worf adopts a slight, smug smile.
