** The "Forgotten 90s Cartoon Characters" skit includes a poster that says "Flint, Michigan: We'll try harder". This came out years before the massive water contamination crisis there.

** A season one skit ''Citizen Spears'', had Jamie Lynn Spears as a highly successful actress while her [[Music/BritneySpears older sister]] went into obscurity. A couple of years afterwards, Jamie Lynn found herself at the center of a [[ContractualPurity teenage pregnancy scandal]] that caused [[Series/{{Zoey101}} Nick to torch her show.]]

* HellIsThatNoise: "Mars is amazing...Mars is amazing." Also Lampshaded in "I Dream of Jeannie" skit by a NASA scientist facing a gigantic living Victorian doll that screeches at him.

** The ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2'' parody in season 6 is rife with TheyJustDidntCare, despite the game having been out for 5 years and still extremely popular by the time the episode aired. The skit starts out promising with a recreation of the class selection screen, then it goes downhill from there. The Demoman and Pyro are generic white mercs, when their defining traits is that the Demoman is the TokenMinority and the Pyro is TheFaceless, the characters all have realistic weapons when the game is well-known for its cartoonish art style, the Soldier and Medic both wield [=SMGs=], a weapon used only by the Sniper, and the Medic shoots the Nerd to death when they're on the same team; friendly fire ''is'' possible in-game, but it needs to be turned on by a server admin, and it never is due to the game's {{griefer}} population. Less reprehensible is that the camera doesn't switch to third-person when the Nerd is killed.

** The 1776 Sketch, a parody of [[Film/ThreeHundred 300]], becomes funnier with the recent announcement that [[http://www.ign.com/articles/2016/03/02/zack-snyder-wants-to-make-george-washington-film-in-style-of-300 Zack Snyder wants to do a film about George Washington]].

** The skit with the Nerd in ''VideoGame/TeamFortress2''. Other than the use of weapons that clearly are not from [=TF2=], it also features the Medic shooting the Nerd with a submachine gun, which in-game is only used by the Sniper, and friendly fire is only possible if a server admin enables it through a console command, which they almost never do [[{{Griefer}} for obvious reasons]]. Less egregious is that the camera doesn't change to a third-person view when the Nerd is killed.

* HarsherInHindsight: In the sketch where the Sarlaac pit spits out Boba Fett, Fett ends the sketch by pointing at the screen and telling Han Solo to watch his ass in Episode VII. Um... yeah. Lighthearted joke in 2012, somewhat less so come December 2015.

* CriticalResearchFailure:
** In the "90's Revisited" skit, Michael Moore interviewed the ''Franchise/PowerRangers'' villain Mesogog, despite Mesogog not being introduced until ''Series/PowerRangersDinoThunder'' in 2004.
** The ending of the "Potter, You Fool" skit where Hermione committed suicide after being cyber-bullied on Website/{{Facebook}}, even though Website/{{Facebook}} didn't exist in the early-mid 1990s when the Literature/HarryPotter books take place.
** The "Ballad of Gay Tony" skit where [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Cloud Strife]] talks about his fetish for crossdressing. In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'', however, Cloud was forced by Aerith to crossdress against his will, but he reluctantly did so because he wanted to rescue Tifa.
** J.R.R. Tolkien never had a grandson known as "J.R.R. Tolkien Junior Junior". In fact, both of the grandchildren of Mr. Tolkien that ''do'' have a "J." for a first initial are ''female''.
** Clearly, whoever wrote the "Martian Boyhunter" sketch never heard of Miss Martian.

** As Palpatine descends to his doom, he decides to make amends with Jar-Jar and apologizes for manipulating him into giving him the emergency powers which did a great deal of paving the way for the Empire. Jar-Jar responds by laughing at the idea that Palpatine manipulated him, and dons a Sith cloak and laughs maniacally. In the finals days before the release of ''Film/TheForceAwakens'', a theory suggesting Jar-Jar was the ''true'' evil Sith antagonist of the franchise ran wild across the Internet.

** The ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' sketch that parodied ''Series/BreakingBad'' took random scenes from the latter without any indication of knowledge of their context. Examples include Dumbledore (who is the stand-in for Walter White) being in his underwear for no explained reason (Walter only did it in one episode because he didn't want his clothes smelling like a meth lab), Ron getting half of his face blown off in a lab accident (when in the scene it was spoofing, the explosion was intentional so Walt could [[spoiler: get rid of Gus]]), the severed-head-turtle bomb, leading to [[spoiler: Dumbledore dying for getting shrapnel in his abdomen]] (which not only wasn't done by Walter, but wasn't [[spoiler: the cause of his death either]]).
