Blended Foreign Import

Exactly that; somewhat a YMMV trope. When something (a media work) is from another place the audience thinks it is.

Main
Page Type:
Trope

A pop culture phenomenon with unknown origins to people in certain countries (e.g. Didja know Daniel Tosh is German, and Mike Judge is Ecuadorian? Tho, both are simply born there)

    "YMMV trope" is an oxymoronic phrase. See also Audience Reaction.

    Louis CK is Mexican and his first language is Spanish, though.

    You know what I meant. But anyway I put a reverse trope.

    Yep, I do, but not sure you know what I mean, if that's your response...

    (There is arguably no such thing as a "YMMV trope", and even if there was, this wouldn't be one. It is an Audience Reaction at best, but seems sort of hard to pin down. What would be the actual criteria for inclusion as a legitimate example?)

    Alright. So I'm adding audience reaction. Let's just get more examples.

    -Is popular in a someplace the author/actor/work isn't from. -The place they are popular in must accidentally have recognized them as their own atleast once.

    The "laconic" still says that tho :P But I meant Louis CK to be an example. He is very popular in the US but most people (AFAIK) don't know that. He speaks English with an American accent and does not look "stereotypically Mexican".

    Also, can you quantify "popular" at all? Should that maybe just not be part of it? Similar to There Is No Such Thing As Notability.

    Well, the minimum amount of popularity is Rob Riggle level.

    Who? Wouldn't "no minimum" be better?

    Alright, I'll drop the minimum

    I don't think this is worthy of its own page. It's trivia at best and would therefore be better suited to the trivia pages for the people/things in question.

    It basically means "More foreign than they think". Where do you build trivia tropes anyway? This was made to be anologuous to "Newer/Older than they think".
