*** "Zerg" = "to gang up on someone"? If that someone is [[VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft Hogger]], I guess... Fun activity: Picture a bunch of juvenile StarCraft players "zerging" somebody on the playground! Never mind that "zerg" is more accurately "everybody rush him at once" and "gank" is more accurately "everybody gang up on him".

* At some [[FleetingDemographicRule award]] show a few years ago, Joan Rivers made a comment about a rapper along the lines of "always getting some bling for him and his crew." *cringe, facepalm*

* R U Lethal?, a driver's ed web show that tries to appeal to high schoolers by using painfully obvious pop culture references (RobertPattinson's hair, anyone?), features a [[PrettyFlyForAWhiteGuy six year old white girl]] that vehemently berates bad drivers using "What's up, my homies?"-style gangsta slang, and refers to Google as "the google".

* In 2014, [[UsefulNotes/PhiladelphiaSubways SEPTA]] (the Philadelphia area's public transportation system) launched it's "[[http://septa.org/service/dudeitsrude/index.html Dude It's Rude!]]" passenger etiquette campaign. The "Watch your language" signs in particular take up an entire window on Market-Frankford line trains, much to the annoyance of people who want to actually be able to see out of them, judging from the chunks torn off the bottom of many of them.

* In TheNineties there was a Dutch ad campaign to keep kids of smoking. Since SmokingIsCool they tried to showcase that cool people don't smoke. What the makers of these ads thought kids considered cool included: a waiter urinating in somebody's food, a guy punching his own father in the face for no reason whatsoever and another guy who made his mother believe his father had cheated on her and messing up their marriage ForTheEvulz. Let's just say the campaign was controversial.

* From {{Cracked}}, this [[http://www.cracked.com/article_19334_the-5-biggest-disasters-in-history-marketing-ideas_p2.html disaster of an ad campaign]] by Silo, using the already outdated in 1986 slang "bananas" for dollars. A new stereo only cost 299 bananas! So people did the [[ExactWords obvious thing]] and showed up at store with 299 bananas (worth $40) to exchange for a brand new stereo, leading to Silo losing thousands of dollars in a day and sitting on more bananas than they could give away for free.

An older person trying to use youth slang is already outdated in 1986 slang "bananas" for dollars. A new stereo only cost 299 bananas! So people did the [[ExactWords obvious thing]] and showed up at store with 299 bananas (worth $40) a category mistake. Much better simply to exchange for a brand new stereo, leading to Silo losing thousands of dollars in a day and sitting on more bananas use normal language, rather than they could give away for free.trying to pretend to be something you're not.
