* RepurposedPopSong: One part of "Mulberry's Wraparounds" has Mulberry lament (by quoting ThisVeryWiki) that Music/{{Blondie}}'s "One Way or Another" gets used in advertising so often, she can't hear it without thinking of one of the many moronic commercials that played it. This segues into a collection of other examples of {{Repurposed Pop Song}}s, at least some of which actually happened.[[note]]A 1977 Halls commercial with Music/TheRollingStones' "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", a 1986 laxative commercial with Music/TheBeatles' "Revolution", a 1996 Mountain Dew commercial with Music/{{Queen}}'s "Bohemian Rhapsody", a 2006 Circuit City commercial with Music/TheCars' "Just What I Needed", and a 2013 {{Ridiculously Loud| Commercial}} Chevy commercial with Music/{{Nirvana}}'s "Smells Like Teen Spirit".[[/note]]

* BuiltWithLEGO: No Franchise/{{LEGO}} bricks involved, but [[http://platypuscomix.net/top189.jpg this banner]] shows a Mulberry minifigure with a sneering expression and a shirt reading, "No Real Than You Are." A [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/top215.jpg later version]], displayed after ''WesternAnimation/TheLEGOMovie'' achieved critical and financial success, changes her shirt to read, "Phil Lord And Chris Miller Are Gods."

** Mulberry finds herself resorting to this in "Mulberry's Lawn," while trying to turn Creator/BrittanyMurphy's last movie ([[TheAsylum Asylum Pictures]]' ''UFO vs. Killer Unicorn'') into a Hollywood blockbuster. {{Universal}} nearly rejects the film for not having enough [[{{Film/Avatar}} blue people]], but she manages to get around that by [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=20&page=12&seriesID=4 promising]] [[VisualEffectsOfAwesome "4-D" special effects]] instead. Mulberry also broadens appeal by [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=20&page=13 changing the title]] to ''[[WordSaladTitle The Feel Sandwich]]'', in hopes of earning a ''[[Film/TheHurtLocker Hurt Locker]]''-level of critical acclaim, and [[http://www.platypuscomix.net/mulberry/index.php?issue=20&page=14&seriesID=4 turning Flava Flav's character]] from a [[DawsonCasting little boy]] to a [[Literature/{{Twilight}} sparkly vampire]].
