->''"It is so bad that a kind of grandeur creeps into it."''
-->-- '''Creator/HLMencken''', on UsefulNotes/WarrenHarding's (mis)use of the English language

Once in a while, a work turns out to be so bad, it creates a disruption in the badness continuum, and wraps right around to good. Rather than it unintentionally BreakingTheFourthWall like usual, something about the specifics of the work in question instead cause an enjoyable, though equally unintended, emotional response in the viewing public. Maybe the [[SpecialEffectFailure hubcap-on-a-wire flying saucers]] are cute, or the spontaneous brothel scene goes on for [[OverlyLongGag so long it's hilarious]], or the technically oriented [[{{Narm}} find humor]] in the way the [[PlayfulHacker hacker]] can [[EverythingIsOnline suborn the traffic lights of New York]] with no perceptible effort.

Whatever the reason, a truly horrid piece of work can become an [[{{Narm}} unintentional riot]] and even get [[CultClassic its own fandom]] for its very lack of quality. This can well be an ongoing process as attitudes change, budgets grow, and cynicism increases.

Keep in mind that even when something is '''So Bad, It's Good''', it's still ''bad''. For most (if not all) entries on this list, there will be an almost unanimous opinion that they fail entirely at having the sort of appeal they intended. Far ''less'' unanimous will be the opinion that they have a sort of appeal that is unintentional. Where the line lies between simply bad, this effect, and DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible, is also controversial. In general, among the very large reserve of things that can be classified as "bad," works that get labeled So Bad It's Good tend to be loaded with unintended {{Narm}} and ludicrously crazy factors, while DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible is the place for works whose badness only makes them boring or offensive; or even their unintentional suckiness or StylisticSuck fails to charm and falls flat as comedy.

The difference between the three is essentially a bad movie is painful to watch but at least you can try to get into the story because there's something that's keeping you watching; a So Bad It's Good movie is one that's so bad that you can't suspend your disbelief enough to not laugh at it so you watch it just to riff on it and laugh at it; DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible is where not only is suspending your disbelief impossible, but it's not even fun to laugh at and merely watching it, even just to riff on it, is painful. Nonetheless, don't be surprised when you come across some items that wind up on both lists, such as ''VideoGame/BigRigsOverTheRoadRacing'' or SouljaBoy's song, "Anime." On occasion, the writers may ''intentionally'' [[IntendedAudienceReaction try to pull off this trope]]. Of course, this almost ''never'' actually results in something that fits because it's hard not to [[LampshadeHanging "wink at the camera"]], [[BetterThanABareBulb so to speak]] -- though it's often still funny. Sometimes a work may fall on the line between bad and so bad it's good; most of these are box-office bombs with a strong cult following.

Something which is So Bad It's Good has a high probability of becoming a CultClassic and, in this day and age, a FountainOfMemes. Many are heavy on {{Camp}}, therefore falling far onto the silly side of the SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness, and are often considered GuiltyPleasures, although neither is necessary. See NarmCharm. This is also often seen in MemeticMutation, when people combine two or more horrible things (or pieces thereof) into something good. LeeroyJenkins, for example.

If someone just keeps on churning out work that's considered So Bad It's Good, said person or people are probably GiftedlyBad. Of course, this could also be a result of SpringtimeForHitler.

Compare StylisticSuck and SoUnfunnyItsFunny, which [[PlayedForLaughs play this trope for laughs]]. Contrast DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible, though both tropes tend to overlap ''a lot''. Not to be confused with BadIsGoodAndGoodIsBad.

'''Note:''' This page is not meant to showcase individual Tropers' opinions on works, despite the title. Only add a work to a subpage if there's a fairly unanimous consensus outside Wiki/TVTropes that the work is of poor quality, or at least that elements of it are. (For example, the early ''Franchise/MegaMan'' games have box art widely considered to be hilariously ugly, while the games themselves are thought of as some of the best platformers ever made.) Also, it does ''not'' mean GuiltyPleasure. If people find merit in a widely derided work instead of relishing its flaws, then it's NarmCharm or CriticalBacklash.

'''Additional note:''' The French cinephile community has come up with the word "nanar" to represent this concept, which is considered as a legitimate movie genre in this country where cinema was born. Although this term has been in use since the middle of the 20th century, it technically is a derivation of the 19th century word "nanard", which would then refer to what you'd call nowadays an [[https://carboncostume.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2016/10/Old-Joseph-Joestar.jpg 'old geezer']]. Unlike popular belief in France, this word therefore doesn't come from "navet" (literally 'turnip'), which is used to designate a [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible movie so bad that it's just plain bad.]]

[[folder: Art]]
* The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Burnside_Fountain Burnside Fountain]] of Worcester, Massachusetts. Affectionately known as the "Turtle Boy Love Statue", it apparently depicts a nude young man having improper relations with a sea turtle.
* Many who dislike British conceptual artist Damien Hirst see him as this; there's just something disgustingly delightful about factory-made 'artworks' that were paid for in thousands of pounds just for the sake of making a splash. Really, one of his most famous 'works' is a skull studded entirely with diamonds. What's not to love? A review of the diamond-studded object also did a pretty good job of showcasing art politics, claiming that if anyone else made it, it would be horribly tacky, but because Damien Hirst made it it's a work of genius.
** Nothing can ever top the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Physical_Impossibility_of_Death_in_the_Mind_of_Someone_Living rotting, dead shark in a tank full of formaldehyde]]. Really, the whole of Young British Artists can be seen as this, especially Damien Hirst's and Tracey Emin's works. There is even an entire movement called Stuckism that is against this kind of art. Stuckism was founded by Billy Childish (from Thee Headcoats) and Charles Thomson in 1999 and is still going strong.
* The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statue_of_Lenin,_Seattle Lenin Statue of Fremont Washington]] is subject to this. Due to a convoluted sequence of events and the lack of a buyer, the revolutionary Communist propaganda statue ended up being installed in a neighbourhood in Seattle, in [[WhyWereBummedCommunismFell 1995]]. Locals dress it up with Christmas lights every holiday season, dress it in drag for Pride Week, put political signs or advertisements in its hands, etc.
* The art community doesn't have an exact version of So Bad It's Good; the closest is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kitsch Kitsch]]. It typically refers to cornball works aimed at the lowest common denominator, and often so broad as to be completely unremarkable, apart from the irony of appreciating something so trite and banal. So Bad It's Good refers to a work that is so ''remarkably'' bad that you find yourself surprised, mystified, or hypnotized by the staggering depth of its inadequacy. It is not merely a failure; it's a ''compelling'' failure.
* The [[http://www.museumofbadart.org/ Museum of Bad Art]] collects "art too bad to be ignored."
* An elderly woman [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-19349921 tried to restore an ancient Spanish fresco of Jesus]], only to end up making "a crayon sketch of a very hairy monkey in an ill-fitting tunic." The woman was a trained painter, but was found out and interrupted before she could finish the restoration.
* In 2009, a privately-commissioned statue of Creator/LucilleBall was erected in her home town of Celoron, New York. The statue, which was created by local artist and depicts Ball as her famous character from ''Series/ILoveLucy'', quickly became notorious [[http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/sites/default/files/2015/04/lucille_ball_statue_a_l.jpg when local residents noticed it looked more like Frankenstein's monster than the famous comedian.]] Dubbed "Scary Lucy", the residents petitioned to have it taken down, but it became an internet sensation soon after. In 2016, a new statue by a different artist was erected in its place, this one looking much more like Lucy and members of the human race in general.

* '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PgIr9ZLV_wk Minecraft with Gadget]]'''
** Fandom: ''WesternAnimation/InspectorGadget''
** Synopsis: [[WebVideo/{{Cinemassacre}} Mike Matei]] shows off the mobile version of ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' to Inspector Gadget. Gadget confess his love for building "brown bricks in Minecrap" before declaring the game to be a waste of time for virgin losers. He then kills Matei for talking too much.
** Comments: Between the "animation" of the Inspector Gadget cut-out, the lousy imitation of Don Adam's voice, and the juvenile bottom-of-the-barrel humour (most notoriously the [[OverlyLongGag constant repetition]] of "I love to build brown bricks with Minecrap" as if it was the funniest thing ever), the video was immediately met with a mockery reception when it was released and quickly deleted. ''Minecraft with Gadget'''s awfulness has been the stuff of MemeticMutation, largely thanks to [[StreisandEffect Mike Matei's desperate attempts to keep it off the internet for a couple of years]].

[[folder:Let's Play]]
* [[Creator/TheKingOfHate DarkSydePhil]] is often seen as this, with his complete inability to play any game, and his constant excuses for failing (it's almost always the fault of the game and not his own incompetence). Others, however, call him [[DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible the flip side of this]].
* The ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' thrive on this, since as comedians often it's the bad games that give them the most material and, since it's unscripted, gives each other the most laughs:
** They openly admit during ''[[VideoGame/SonicBoom Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric]]'' that they ended up gleefully looking forward to the next time they get to play the [[ChristmasRushed clearly rushed]] and [[ObviousBeta barely cobbled together]] "glitch that is occasionally a game." They also fondly mention in later reviews that the game was "the gift that kept on giving" and even considering to go back and do a second playthrough without using the [[GoodBadBugs Knuckles Jump]] to skip 80% of the game.
** It's also enforced in their [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-LfKbCR0MI let's play of]] ''VideoGame/MickeyMousecapade''. Arin takes this and runes with it, spending nearly the entire episode pretending to be an awful WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd ripoff and making dozens upon dozens of vulgar and/or uncreative jokes so horrible they're hilarious.
** Ross's... [[FunnyForeigner odd humor]] is also a massive source of comedy for the show. To illustrate, after triumphantly demanding to start one of their sessions of ''VideoGame/NoTimeToExplain'' because he has "something awesome" for the opening, ends up telling [[https://youtu.be/IIhUrE2RM-M a ketchup pun]] (The character has a burger for a head). Simply how awkward and corny it was ends up being more entertaining than any genuinely funny opening could have been:
--> '''Ross:''' Hey guys. What's ketch-up?
--> ({{Beat}})
--> '''Arin:''' Are you serious? (Cracks up laughing)
* The currently removed Omega Edge 29 let's play of ''Kaizo Mario 64''. The quality of the video is very good. Sadly, it seems that he's playing on the video a hack that's too hard for him, leaving him screaming and shouting at the game, whilst needing many tries only to get 1 star. Compare this with the oversensitive soundbox (because it registers his typing all the time) and you have something hilarious to watch. But the best thing about all of this is that he made ''Kaizo Mario 64''. It's also been retsupuraed [[http://blip.tv/slowbeef/that-s-so-kaizo-an-rp-mini-series-4999667 here]].
* LetsPlay/{{Turpster}}'s old intro video "Turpstervision" (fan reupload [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myZ-rs7y6uA&channel=123trainmad456 here]]) has gained this reputation among fans of the LetsPlay/{{Yogscast}}, as well as fellow members of the group. The reason for this is that the song is a parody of "Chucklevision" by the Chuckle Brothers, with Turps' bad rapping and poor singing as well as a nonsensical intro of him slicing a box open, ending with him wearing it on his head the way a child would pretend they're on TV. However, since Turps is Turps, it comes across as dorkishly endearing and funny.
* ''WebVideo/TwoBestFriendsPlay'' often do one-shot episodes and occasionally entire LP's on terrible games for comedic effect, even dedicating an entire weekly segment to terrible fighting games called ''Saturday Morning Scrublords''. In particular, they tend to mock [[Creator/QuanticDream David Cage]] and his games with this attitude in mind, and have so far played every one of them. This came back to bite them in the ass when they did an LP of the [[PortingDisaster bug-ridden PC port]] of the already obtuse and dated ''VideoGame/OmikronTheNomadSoul'', which swiftly became the most infamous playthrough in the channel's history, so far.

* The [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bgG8wQ3Msqw promotional video]] for the ''Pinball/DemolitionMan'' pinball, which attempts to duplicate the atmosphere and special effects of the movie on a shoestring budget, while hyping up the game's gun-grip controllers, all intermixed with actual film clips. It fails spectacularly, but retains an innocent appeal, like watching an eight-year-old trying to to duplicate a Creator/MichaelBay film in his backyard.
* ''Pinball/HollywoodHeat'' qualifies for this trope by having a cheesy {{Mockbuster}} premise wrapped around a surprisingly fun and straightforward game. it is regarded as one of Creator/{{Gottlieb}}'s better titles, and renown designer Creator/SteveRitchie has called it one of his all-time favorites.
* Creator/DataEast's ''Pinball/LaserWar'' mixes fast gameplay with a HamAndCheese premise and an amusingly schlocky translight starring futuristic warriors all sporting EightiesHair.
* ''Pinball/DrDude'' sometimes dips into this with its ridiculous [[TheEighties 80's]] aesthetic; nothing exemplifies this more than getting the Gift of Gab, which causes a rap song to start playing:
-->"My life was dull\\
My life was drab\\
'Till I acquired\\
''The Gift of Gab!''\\
Always be excellent!\\
Never be rude!\\
It's the Gift of Gab!\\
'''From Dr. Dude!'''"

[[folder: Professional Wrestling]]
* ProfessionalWrestling pretty much runs on this trope when it's not relying on being a GuiltyPleasure and an athletic exhibition.
* Wrestling/{{WWE}} wrestler [[Wrestling/{{Boogeyman}} the Boogeyman]] is an almost-bald ScaryBlackMan with his entire head painted red with black spots, who walks like he's having a seizure, smashes giant antique clocks over his head, speaks almost entirely in singsongy nursery rhymes, eats worms by the handful, and his catchphrase is, "I'm... THE BOOGEYMAN! And I'm comin'... TO GETCHA!" The whole thing is as hilariously awful as it sounds.
** His backstory actually {{lampshade| hanging}}s the ludicrousness involved -- an actor for a show that didn't materialize who snapped (falling too deep into method acting) and became the Boogeyman, but was [[ExecutiveMeddling sicced]] onto WWE's ''[[Wrestling/{{WWESmackDown}} WWE [=SmackDown!=]]]'' brand anyway to see what would happen and because he was still under contract. Seriously.
** Even more hilariously awful is the time in one skit with [[Wrestling/{{DGenerationX}} DeGeneration X]], he appeared from underneath the ring, and told Wrestling/TripleH and Wrestling/ShawnMichaels: "I'm...THE BOOGEYMAN! And I'm comin' to - (briefly sans Boogeyman gimmick) - see if I can join DX."
** The fact that he lisped his lines made all the better.
* The Coal Miner's Glove (a leather glove, covered in metal studs) was a supposed to be a ShoutOut to an even worse match from before the Wrestling/MondayNightWars era. Going into the ''Wrestling/{{WCW}} Halloween Havoc 92'' [=PPV=], held on October 25, Wrestling/{{Sting}} was feuding with [[Wrestling/JakeRoberts Jake "The Snake" Roberts]], who devised that they "[[WheelOfDecisions Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal]]" a match where various gimmick matches were on a giant wheel, and whatever it landed on would be the match they would face off in. However, the wheel itself wasn't gimmicked, and it landed on the worst possible option -- a "Coal Miner's Glove" match. Whoever retrieved the glove from the pole first, would be allowed to "use" it on his opponent. The match wasn't much and Jake, due more to personal issues than bad booking decisions, was gone right after.
* Wrestling/MickFoley deliberately went for this while wrestling as Dude Love in order to separate the gimmick from his other personae (the sadistic Cactus Jack and the psychotic Mankind). It wasn't the first time he had done this. During his "anti-extreme" gimmick in Wrestling/{{ECW}} (a promotion that prided itself on high-quality, high-risk wrestling), Mick (as Cactus Jack) reduced his entire moveset to one move: a headlock. Thus, his matches would consist of nothing but ten straight minutes of assorted headlocks, gaining [[CheapHeat incredible heat]] from the quality-hungry ECW fans.
* During Music/TheMisfits' stint in WCW, there was a backstage segment where they try to hit on Wrestling/DaffneyUnger, which leads to her attacking Jerry Only. After [[HypocriticalHumor they call her a freak]], she runs away screaming and laughing, almost like a WesternAnimation/DaffyDuck cartoon.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s3CL28vgE4U The Shockmaster]]. And [[AscendedGlitch they capitalized on it]] with the Super-Shockmaster.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qs0pyWCNEIY The Ultimate Warrior vs Phil Collins!]]
* Wrestling/TheUndertaker: One of the best big men in the wrestling business, and a solid Wrestling/{{WWE}} worker for over twenty years doesn't change the fact that he's a Satan-worshipping, gravedigging zombie cult leader Death Incarnate who was a biker for a while back at the turn of the century. It's even more NarmCharm in modern times, when most wrestlers are less cartoonish, yet the Undertaker still is portrayed as a supernatural force.
* NXT Season 3. The show is [[StylisticSuck so ridiculously bad on purpose]], that it seems like its target audience are those who read Website/{{WrestleCrap}} every week. It's almost as if WWE took everything that was {{narm}}y about the WWE Divas, [[AccentuateTheNegative highlighted it]], and placed a few other comedy acts on the show to act as foils, such as {{heel}} Wrestling/MichaelCole, Wrestling/{{Goldust}}, and LargeHam [[TheScrappy Scrappy]] Wrestling/VickieGuerrero. By Week 3, the show was so bad that you had Michael Cole banging a [[Series/TheGongShow gong]] at ringside following the rookie challenges. The show's entire appeal is the ensuing NarmCharm, as well as Cole and Josh Mathews sarcastic remarks on everyone else involved.
** Episode 4 would up the ante even further by introducing Wrestling/CMPunk on commentary, reprising a role he once played in early Wrestling/RingOfHonor shows. Punk would play the role of DeadpanSnarker to perfection, even delivering a [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment of Funny]] when he pointed out that he wasn't wearing any pants (he had his ring gear on covered by a sports coat), and then pointed out that [[ADateWithRosiePalms he watched NXT every week without pants]]. When Punk closed the show by announcing that he would be returning the next week, the five people that still watched the show rejoiced.
** Sadly, that would turn out to be BlatantLies. However, Cole, Josh, and Matt Striker still brought the awesome every week until NXT was relaunched as WWE's developmental show.
* WCW's San Francisco 49ers Match between Wrestling/JeffJarrett and Wrestling/BookerT is one of the most hilariously stupid matches of all time. It's a glorified pole match (something Wrestling/VinceRusso [[AuthorAppeal was fond of]]) with 4 wooden boxes at the end of each pole; 1 contains the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Championship]] belt and the other 3 contain "weapons:" a blow up doll, a framed picture of Wrestling/ScottHall, and a coal miner's glove. It began with an old lady trying to smack Jarrett with a shirt Wrestling/BookerT gave her and ended with Beetlejuice (not ''that'' Film/{{Beetlejuice}}, the Wack Packer from ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'') giving Jarrett 5 [[GroinAttack "high blows"]]. The title fell out of the box, and Booker T became the WCW Champion. When the belt fell out, David Penzer had to hand it to Booker. Thankfully, Russo wasn't sharp enough to change the finish and award the title to Penzer instead.
* Wrestling/{{Wrestlicious}} which is exactly what it sounds - [[PinkMeansFeminine pink ring ropes]], outlandish gimmicks, {{camp}} factor UpToEleven, a commentator that sounds like Creator/StanLee and a HurricaneOfPuns during every match. Yet also features [[AllStarCast the top women wrestlers in the country]] as the characters. It's safe to call it the ''Film/BatmanAndRobin'' of indie wrestling.
* Wrestling/{{TNA}}: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvACWh8k7Io Final Deletion.]] This unfathomably inane and hilarious mini-movie/bout includes such highlights as Wrestling/JeffHardy defending his house from his brother's army of attack drones with his acoustic guitar, Wrestling/MattHardy cackling madly as he drives a lawnmower over Jeff's lawn art, and some of the most stilted and wooden acting this side of Syfy. The best part? [[UpToEleven We haven't even gotten to the actual bout yet,]] which features Jeff missing Matt from a dive off of a tree onto a cropped-up ladder (which Jeff treated like it hit and attempted a pinfall), Jeff throwing Matt into a backyard screen, the two boys shooting each other with roman candles and attempting to drown each other in the lake, accompanied by jump cut edits and movie trailer music the whole way through. It's essentially the ''{{Sharknado}}'' of wrestling mini-movies.
** You can't have The Final Deletion without [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jzScgAhSt0 the infamous contract signing]] that drew attention to this nutty feud in the first place. Matt Hardy's opening address, the random music choices, the inexplicable acknowledgement of the gardener, Reby throwing a baby doll at Jeff, and Matt plunging Jeff in overwrought slow-mo through a rickety looking table that was randomly set up next to their ring. Surviving this without laughing is above most men (and of course you can't forget the MemeticMutation that is "BROTHER NERO"). This actually got people talking about TNA in a more positive light (though sarcastically or seriously is a matter of debate) and some TNA talent took the chance [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSmj28cCz88 to spoof it]] as well (which made it onto TNA's official [=YouTube=] page).
*** For that matter, [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k2Aar_AHwpA The Great War]] needs to be mentioned as a continuation of the angle. Broken Matt and Brother Nero reconcile and team up to take on Decay (Crazzy Steve & Abyss) for the TagTeam Championship. Among other highlights, we get Reby Sky performing the Broken Hardyz theme (with Brother Nero on vocals!), Broken Matt's drone spraying Rosemary with poison mist, Matt Hardy spouting gibberish and throwing fire to ignite [[ICallItVera Janice (Abyss's 2x4 with nails sticking out)]], a "fan" challenging Abyss, only for Rosemary to [[CurbstompBattle kick the fan's ass in short order]], and Brother Nero [[SplitPersonality turning into several of his other previous personas]], as well as [[VisualPun attacking Crazzy Steve by smashing pumpkins into him.]]
* [[http://5dollarwrestling.com/ 5 Dollar Wrestling]] openly acknowledges itself as "Wrestling So Bad It's Good!" [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QSXQE8KXLc8 Let this promo show you what to expect.]]
* The book ''Literature/TheDeathOfWCW'' points out that a lot of people only watched Wrestling/{{WCW}} in its final two years because of this trope.
* Amidst cameras being interrupted by static, Franchise/{{Robocop}} and Sting [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGUJYLDgR8k busting into WCW to face The Four Horsemen]].
* Any all-woman promotion David [=McLane=] was involved in, whether it be Wrestling/{{GLOW}}, WOW, or POWW. Stupid, cheesy fun with stupid, cheesy gimmicks, stupid, cheesy action, and stupid, cheesy [[FanService cheesecake]].
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUwkZv66Qp0 This DDP promo, where a motivational speaker wants to speak of how his friend Tony had a cat that was killed and it actually saved his marriage.]] [[LampshadeHanging Even the announcer was like "The Hell you say?"]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_9pwCuJDQPQ Kittitas County Wrestling]] presents a dimly lit, crudely constructed wrestling arena featuring spotty commentary, stupid gimmicks, and not so much wrestling as pretend fighting. It feels more like a NoBudget buddy get-together than a professional wrestling association.
* If you ever have a chance to find footage of it, it's always a hoot to watch the short-lived wrestling promotion Wrestling/WrestlingSocietyX (WSX). Their content is notorious for things like a hyperactive ring announcer and the use of pyrotechnics and crazy camera work during their matches. Nothing they produced is ''good'', but it's still a fun romp if you're the type of pro wrestling fan who is able to turn off their brains.
** Nowadays, Wrestling/LuchaUnderground ''[[InvokedTrope deliberately]]'' goes for a similar vibe to Wrestling Society X, and is somewhere between this and SugarWiki/SoCoolItsAwesome depending on who you ask.
* Shawn Michaels vs. Wrestling/HulkHogan at [=SummerSlam=] 2005 is infamous because Michaels got annoyed at Hogan canceling their rematch and demanding he go over, resulting in him overselling all of Hogan's offense and flopping around like crazy in protest. It's pretty kayfabe-breaking but it's hilarious, especially if you understand the context.

[[folder: Radio]]
* Every Christmas/New Year holiday break, Radio New Zealand goes "mufti day" and hosts the "[[http://www.radionz.co.nz/national/programmes/matineeidle Matinee Idle]]" radio show, where bad, campy and novelty music is played back for laughs.
* British radio presenter Radio/SarahKennedy presented the early breakfast show on BBC Radio Two for ten years. She was notorious for gaffes, fumbling, non-PC comments, political bias, and sometimes turning up for work in a state that the uncharitable might mistake for "drunk". (She blamed it on prescription medication.) On one occasion, her long slurring rambling alerted the station to the fact that something was seriously wrong and her show abruptly ended after twenty-five minutes. A relief presenter took over and she was sent home to sleep it off. Sir Radio/TerryWogan, who presented the following show, once famously quipped that "Sarah's been pouring the old gin over her cornflakes again!" People used to set their alarm clocks to wake them up earlier in the hope of catching another Kennedy classic. She no longer works for the BBC.
* The ''Series/DoctorWho'' audio drama ''Doctor Who and the Pescatons''. It's nonsensical, puerile, [[OutOfCharacterMoment writes the Doctor with a totally different personality]] and features a GuiltFreeExterminationWar as a FamilyUnfriendlyAesop, but its stupidity is quite enjoyable, [[HamAndCheese both Tom Baker and Elizabeth Sladen are well aware of how bad it is and are clearly having a great time]], and the Doctor ''sings'' in it.
* James Brownyard was the owner and the only disk jockey for WHYP, a small CountryMusic AM radio station in the Erie, Pennsylvania area, who is still legendary in radio circles for the amazing level of incompetence he brought to the airwaves in the 1970s and 1980s. Not just for his gruff, monotonous voice, but also his tendency to go off on long, nonsensical rants in-between songs, letting records skip and repeat on the air, long stretches of dead air, and constantly interrupting songs to report on low-flying helicopters or thunderstorms in the vicinity of the studio. [[http://psychedelicfrogs.com/WHYP.htm Some examples]].

[[folder: Sports]]
* A beloved complete failure in the sport of horse racing is the 18th Duc of Albuquerque (Beltrán Alfonso Osorio), famous for entering the Grand National steeplechase seven times and ''never being able to complete the course''. Each and every time he'd fall off the horse at one of the fences, and the bookmakers eventually caught on to this fact -- resulting in the Duc making history in 1963, when the bookies began offering odds of 66-1 against his managing to stay on the horse for the entire race. He never gave up, though; in 1974 he fell off the horse during training and entered the race itself with a broken collar bone and a leg in plaster. Amazingly enough, this turned out to be the only time in his career when he actually finished the race without falling off.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eddie_%22The_Eagle%22_Edwards Eddie "The Eagle" Edwards]], a British ski jumper who [[LoopholeAbuse qualified for the 1988 Winter Olympics]] because every country was (at the time) allowed to be represented in any given discipline, and he was the only British applicant. Edwards had the disadvantages of weighing 9 kg more than the next man in his category and being extremely far-sighted, and his general skills were [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A7MmJIy0bjo less than stellar]] to say the least. Nevertheless, his sheer determination and love of the sport endeared him to audiences everywhere. [[StopHavingFunGuys The Olympic Committee]] was less enthusiastic about someone "making a mockery of the sport", however, and the rules for qualification were [[ObviousRulePatch changed next time around]], largely to prevent another such case from happening.
** There's even a mini-meme attached to him. Every single [=YouTube=] video featuring him has, as one of the top-rated comments, "Legend".
** Featured at the same Olympics were the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jamaican_bobsled_team Jamaican bobsled team]] who inspired the movie Film/CoolRunnings five years later. Though they haven't competed in the Olympics recently, the Jamaican bobsled team did place as high as 14th (ahead of the USA, Russia, France, and one Italian sled) in the 1994 Winter Olympics.
* Hammadou Djibo Issaka of Niger became a media darling in the 2012 Olympics after becoming a wildcard development entry. He was beyond terrible in the single sculls (a full minute behind the second worst athlete in an event slated for about seven minutes), but the fact that he only started rowing three months before the Olympics gained him a lot of popularity.
* Stanford's band occasionally has the same reputation, but not for their music, which is quite good. Their conduct is what gets them recognized. For starters, they (since they're not a traditional marching band) don't wear uniforms in the same way that other bands do. What gets them the most attention, though, is their shows, which have earned the ire of some universities, since they have contained performances that others might find somewhat classless. Wiki/TheOtherWiki has [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_Band#Controversial_actions_by_the_band a listing]].
* Stanford University's "mascot", [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kGvdaANIzU the Stanford Tree]]. Despite Stanford not officially recognizing the Tree as its mascot, the Tree is allowed to dance around during games, and there is a special student committee that determines who gets to be the Tree each season. Whoever is the Tree has to design the costume, hence the varying quality of the Tree each year.
* The 1962 New York Mets, whose 120 losses remain the post-1900 Major League Baseball record, remain one of the more beloved teams in history. Similarly, in games like football where it's a lot easier to lose every single game (because there aren't that many), it's not uncommon for fans to cheer their team for a "perfect" losing season. (The 2008 Detroit Lions are a good example.)
* As detailed in the 30 for 30 short "The Anti-Mascot", the San Francisco Giants "Crazy Crab" mascot, a guy in an unwieldy crab suit that the audience was expected to enjoy hating right off the bat. Perhaps a little too much so.

[[folder: Tabletop Games]]
* The ''TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons'' [[http://archive.wizards.com/dnd/Tool.aspx?x=dnd/4new/tool/cng Character Name Generator]] has a tendency to produce unintentionally hilarious names.
* At least for some readers, [[TabletopGame/DungeonsAndDragons Gary Gygax's]] prose style is reminiscent of the Mencken quote atop this page.
* ''[[http://rpg.drivethrustuff.com/product_info.php?products_id=93237 Strike Legion]]'' is what ''VideoGame/LimboOfTheLost'' wants to be: Something that ripped off so many sources it digs right out of the barrel-bottom of absolute shit and becomes hilarious awesome. [[http://forums.spacebattles.com/showthread.php?t=196770 Have a MST]] and mind the picture load.
* To many, ''TabletopGame/{{World of Synnibarr}}'' qualifies. While the mechanics are terrible and the setting incoherent, it's still a game with a "midnight sunstone bazooka", mechanics that affect the ''next'' character you roll up, and an actual DeusExMachina roll to see if your patron deity turns up to save your life.
* ''Via The New Legends'' is a Russian game made by a man who clearly has no idea how to create or play a tabletop game, is a game that's literally unfinished because [[RevenueEnhancingDevices the author has split the base rulebook into multiple releases]]. Yes, the ''base'' rulebook. There's also this bizarre and obstinate refusal to recognize the concept of roleplaying. In fact, [[CompletelyMissingThePoint roleplaying is literally illegal according to the rulebook]]. Even the GM is forced to strictly follow the outline in the book. It's against the rules to rob stores, even when playing a thief. It's against the rules to create random encounters outside of designated squares. [[RevenueEnhancingDevices It's against the rules to roll dice without having purchased the dice field from the game's website.]] It's even against the rules to ''share dice with your friends''. The way the game expects the players to just play the game like a quiet obedient machine, and be so enamored by this experience that they'll buy all the merchandise, is just so silly.

[[folder: Theatre]]
* ShowWithinAShow example: "Pyramus and Thisbe" in ''Theatre/AMidsummerNightsDream''. It's so badly written and wretchedly performed that it's hilarious. The Duke and his guests order it performed just for the SnarkBait.
** What's even better is that Pyramus and Thisbe is an ''actual play'' that was notorious for the fact there is no possible way to perform it without it being ridiculous, even by skilled hands.
* The 1955 musical ''Ankles Aweigh'' was the kind of vaudeville sister-act vehicle that was such a throwback at the time of its production that its publicity campaign didn't try to hide it. The score is a total ClicheStorm, from the OpeningChorus to TheElevenOClockNumber titled "An Eleven O'Clock Song." When the show was revived in the 1989 by the Goodspeed Opera House, it was [[ParodyRetcon rewritten as a parody of musicals]].
* TheMusical adaptation of Creator/StephenKing's ''{{Carrie}}'' has acquired this reputation. Its commercial failure on Broadway became so notorious that it was the inspiration for the book ''Not Since Carrie'', a chronicle of Broadway musical flops of the latter half of the twentieth century (King himself reportedly liked it, though). Within the show itself, the pinnacle of accidental hilarity has to be "Don't Waste the Moon", a retread of the old "girls want relationships, boys want sex" chestnut with awesomely lame lyrics like "We would go bowling if you really cared / But you don't! ("I do!") You don't!"
** The revival is a ''little'' better, with reworked songs and an official recording, plus better special effects, but it's still delightfully silly.
* From the DreamTeam of [[Music/{{U2}} Bono, The Edge]] and [[Disney/TheLionKing Julie Taymor]] comes the legendarily TroubledProduction of ''Theatre/SpiderManTurnOffTheDark'', an avant-garde, disaster-prone production that very few people understood and appreciated in its original form, becoming slightly better when the entire show was revised.
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Coates_%28actor%29 Robert Coates]] was such an infamously bad actor people would flock to see him just to see how bad he was.
* [[https://www.thisamericanlife.org/radio-archives/episode/61/fiasco This radio segment]] is about a production of ''Theatre/PeterPan'' that becomes an utter fiasco in which the flying apparatus smacks the actors into the furniture, and Captain Hook's hook flies off his arm and hits an old woman in the stomach. By the end of the evening, firemen have arrived and all the normal boundaries between audience and actors have completely dissolved.

[[folder: Toys]]
* The [[ForTheEvulz Piraka]] [[GangstaRap rap]] from ''Toys/{{Bionicle}}''. Listen to it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K1CTPC02n0c here]] in all of its hilarious glory.
** Before that, there was ''[[https://soundcloud.com/limeparadox/bionicle-brain BIONICLE Brain]]'', an intentionally horrible parody rap recorded on a promotional tour by the drivers of the "[[http://www.bzpower.com/story.php?ID=1298 East Coast BIONICLE Unleashed Van]]", a certain Swift and Danny.
** The various "Good Guy" and "Bad Guy" promo sets (basically random pieces thrown together to sorta make a figure or a bizarre weapon-thing) they would package with battery packs and the like. One of them eventually got canonized as the official toy representation of a certain character, which is more divisive than a clear-cut example of "so bad it's good".
* Doggie Doo, in which you push on an air pump to make a plastic dog poop yellow play-doh; see it in it's glory [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JDyOD1C67J0 here]]. It's notable for becoming an [[MemeticMutation internet sensation]] in Germany, and instantly became a meme when it arrived in America.
* ''[[WesternAnimation/ChallengeOfTheGoBots GoBots]]'' Rocklords. Think ''{{Transformers}}'', but instead becoming something cool like a car, a dinosaur, a plane, or a tank, they became rocks! You could choose between granite, quartz or shale amongst others!
** The really stupid bit is in ''[=GoBots=]'' movie - they [[{{Transformers}} transform and roll out]] and slowly clump away down the road like bricks turning under their own power.
** Parodied in the Creator/TomHanks movie ''Big'', where Hanks - playing a kid who has been transformed into a grown-up - is shown a new toy that his employers are working on. It's an immobile skyscraper that turns into a giant robot. "So what's so fun about playing with a building? That's not any fun!" He then goes on to propose "a big prehistoric insect with maybe like giant claws that could pick up a car and crush it like that!"
* In 2006, to coincide with the new film, Jakks Pacific put out a line of ''Franchise/{{Rocky}}'' action figures, with characters from the entire series... and several extremely bizarre creative decisions throughout, to the point where it just becomes laughably absurd. Even though the figures were made at a six-inch scale, almost all of them used real fabric clothes, and it's impossible to make clothing thin enough to look good at such a small scale, so they invariably either made the figures look bloated or didn't line up, particularly [[http://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure.php?universeid=604&FID=13083&figure=adrian Adrian]]. What ''really'' sends this into surreal hilarity, though, was the idea to release ''the slab of meat Rocky trains on'' as [[http://www.figurerealm.com/actionfigure.php?universeid=604&FID=13086&figure=meat its own action figure sold separately from anything else.]]
* While there are lots of [[ShoddyKnockOffProduct shoddy knock-off toys]] you find in dollar stores that are just boring and poorly made, more than a few are completely bonkers in their presentation. Hideously OffModel, packages that display clear [[SerialNumbersFiledOff copyright violations]] and GratuitousEnglish or just plain BlindIdiotTranslation or TranslationTrainwreck instructions and eye-catching details or are just such utterly bizarre concepts that they can't help but make you laugh. [[http://www.badrobotninja.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Superman-on-Dinosaur.jpg Superman riding a dinosaur?]] Oh, why the hell not.
** And then they make "Super Hero Teams" consisting of random figures. What? You never heard of the time [[http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v232/nekusagi/1240520249333.jpg Naruto teamed up with Batman, Spider-Man, and Iron Man to fight crime?]] Or how about when [[https://imgur.com/gallery/gj0eM a yellow Power Ranger teamed up Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, a yellow Lightning McQueen and Shrek]] joined forces as the Sense of Right Alliance?
* [[http://www.dinotoyblog.com/2010/06/15/tsintaosaurus-collecta/ This]] figure of a Tsintaosaurus.

[[folder: Web Original]]
* Similarly [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Angry_Video_Game_Nerd:_The_Movie Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie]] is an intentional case of this trope.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/AnimationFilms1212/videos AnimationFilms1212]], who doesn't know the difference between "making cartoons for children" and [[ViewersAreGoldfish "dumbing down everything"]]. The [[UncannyValley "animation"]] is both hilarious and [[NightmareFuel creepy]]. The voice acting's amateurish at the very best, and the "jokes" are extremely predictable. And it manages to be unintentionally hilarious. While every single animation deserves to be here, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J5kn7I1H4AM "The Bunny Rabbit Movie"]] deserves a special mention, but no mere description will do it justice. It has to be ''seen to be believed.''
** They have a second channel called [[http://www.youtube.com/user/AnimationVideos21?feature=watch AnimationVideos21]] for their "edgier" material. They try to do GettingCrapPastTheRadar -style jokes, but there's no radar to dodge, the "adult" humor is incredibly obvious (Children say "damn", "Jesus", and "effing" in the Halloween special, a character called "Spank the Monkey", a PedophilePriest joke and excessive blood in the Halloween special). It's definitely not for adults either, as the writing in these shows are just as insipid as Animation Films 1212's ones.
* In ''Literature/Assignment2'', we read excerpts from main character Stanley Brown's novels, which are titled ''Lance MHS and His Adventures in Bigface's Castle Boat (With His Awesome Bass)'' and ''The Gift Horse Who Saved''. Both are ridiculously stupid, almost on Fanfic/MyImmortal levels. But without the eye-gouging spelling atrocities. A sample:
-->“You!” shouted Yeevil. “You killed my father!”\\
“Kind of, but I didn’t mean to,” answered Hemmingway.\\
“How dare you,” shouted Yeevil quietly.\\
“I DO WHATEVER I WANTED TO BE DOING!” muttered Hemmingway silently.
* Referenced in Todd van der Werff's reviews for ''Website/AVClub'': he has said that he considers a D grade to be worse than an F, because an F is so extraordinary in its horribleness that it is almost worth watching for that achievement, whereas a D is merely forgettable and dull.
** SNL's Victoria Jackson had a similar guide to interpreting ratings. Three stars meant the movie was great; "They don't make 'em any better." Four stars was more iffy; the movie might not be so good, but it could be. Two stars is the worst rating you can give a movie; these are the worst of the worst. And one star is "pretty good, too." Pretty easy to see the humor; four stars means it's an "art" movie made primarily for critics and culture snobs (but still might be good), whereas two stars meant bad and not interesting, and one star indicates this trope.
* Azneyeswhitedragon's series [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLt1ArD3Ww4 of]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T0KF3NMWxeE low]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjXuHsPJtYw rated]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIBeXxx-4so duelists]]. Yes, it's basically two terrible duelists fighting against each other, but after facing off after so many pro decks it's just such a welcome break, because it features some amazingly hilarious combos and errors (not to mention by some that their fanboyness towards the anime is hilarious, to the point where their decks are based on it).
* [[JustForFun/BackstrokeOfTheWest Star War The Third Gathers: The Backstroke of the West]] is a TranslationTrainWreck of [[Film/RevengeOfTheSith Revenge of the Sith]], and is ridiculously hilarious. Some highlights include the lines "R2, do you is fucking?", "He is in my behind!", "[[MemeticMutation Do not want]]", and "This...is what who fuck?"
* The rap album ''I Hate Birds'' by Sam Brass Knuckles. "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=trJY18zm2E4&list=PL7CE65E16B050C578 Fuck Pigeons]]" is one of the more tolerable examples.
* There are those that watch ''WebVideo/TheIrateGamer'' for this reason.
* In Germany, [[http://www.karl-fritsch.de Karl Fritsch's website]] became (in)famous for being this. Some fan even wrote a [[http://www.gmnads.de/fritschalyzer/ "Karl-Fritschalyzer"]] which allows displaying any text in this style.
* ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'': A group of over-acting non-actors in a silly plot about internet reviewers from Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses taking over a tiny {{micronation}} in Nevada. The ridiculous nature of the film is largely entirely deliberate. The same is true for the following film, ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''.
* [[http://www.booksie.com/horror/short_story/deathsword/the-life-of-death-sword The Life of Death Sword]], a story about a fight between some guy named [[AwesomeMcCoolname John Swords]], also known as Death Sword, who was born missing many body parts, including half his brain, so they just got replaced by "[[AssPull alien machine parts from another world]]." He fights against his enemy, Death Screw, and then the gods interfere for some reason. Such a ridiculous plot, so badly written, and yet, so hilarious.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/nuttymadam3575 Nuttymadam3575]] is an obsessed fan of ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' whose videos trying (and failing) to defend the franchise from the wrath of the {{hatedom}} as well as her reactions to the ''Breaking Dawn'' [[TheFilmOfTheBook movie]] trailers make for a good laugh.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cYv8OEuF8xU Short Legs One]] - A live action ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' CrackFic. 'Nuff said, surely.
* The Website/{{Facebook}} page [[https://www.facebook.com/ShrekisloveShrekislife?ref=br_tf Shrek is love, Shrek is life]] is known for its "Shrektexts", vignettes that take the style of 4chan's "greentexts", feature poor spelling and grammar, and usually end with [[Franchise/{{Shrek}} Shrek]] raping the narrator.
* ''Website/SomethingAwful'' would occasionally have a "Page of Shame" sub-feature at the end of their "Photoshop Phridays". They're usually classified as DarthWiki/SoBadItsHorrible, but there are quite a few occasions that are considered as this trope:
** [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/photoshop-phriday/animal-anomalies.php?page=19 exploitedtroll's entries for the "Animal Anomalies" theme.]]
** [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/photoshop-phriday/paintings-light-part.php?page=5 The "Page of Smiles"]] (featuring a single image that's "too awful for usage and too good for the page of shame".)
** [[http://www.somethingawful.com/d/photoshop-phriday/before-after-movies.php?page=4 The "Page of Wow"]] (featuring "Film/TheHuntForRedOctober [[Film/OctoberSky Sky]]".)
* WebOriginal/TheSonicAmigos, an plush-based web show featuring characters such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Homer Simpson, Super Mario, and others getting into various adventures. It has to be seen to be believed. Here's the [[http://www.youtube.com/user/TheSonicAmigos YouTube channel]], if you're interested.
* Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses[=/=]Channel Awesome runs on this, it's a bunch of people doing webshows on shoe-string budgets, and they love to play up the {{Narm}} of it.
** Also, several of the reviewers specialize in movies that fit in this trope; ie. WebVideo/TheCinemaSnob, Creator/AllisonPregler, WebVideo/DiamandaHagan, and, to some extent, [[WebVideo/TheSpoonyExperiment Spoony]].
* ''WebVideo/TheTwilightChronicles'' - Imagine ''Literature/{{Twilight}}'' as a BlackComedy, with a CastFullOfGay and a confusing LoveDodecahedron plot. Throw in writer's-strike writing and porn-worthy acting, and you've got this.
* Website/YouTube's captioning device (which is originally used for deaf people) qualifies when it has such word salad gems as "[[Series/LegendsOfTheHiddenTemple I have a six-year-old and that may be headed for trouble]]", "[[Creator/AbbottAndCostello Fuck my sex life]]", "[[Anime/YuGiOh I designed this virtual stadium myself in prison]]", "[[WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic Let me show you who's going to lose a lot of pot]]", "[[WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd It's like you've given up on election day]]", and "[[Anime/SonicX My brain, you know it going to die]]" being around. These captions are considered SugarWiki/FunnyMoments, even if the video shown is supposed to be serious and/or not funny. It's even more hilarious when you find shows and video games that are mainly meant for a younger audience and they find naughty words like "[[VideoGame/KirbysEpicYarn Sexy]]", "[[DonaldDuck Vaginally]]", "[[DonaldDuck S]][[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaCDiGames h]][[Series/KenanAndKel i]][[VideoGame/MarioParty t]]", "[[VideoGame/MarioParty Genitals]]", "[[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Fuck]]", "[[VideoGame/DonkeyKongCountry Cock]]", "[[Creator/{{Disney}} Asshole]]", and "[[Franchise/{{Pokemon}} Faggot]]". We actually want you to go click on the CC button for almost any video around if it's shown there. If you want to find some ''more'' of these pictures, click either [[http://youchew.net/forum/index.php?/topic/66074-post-inaccurate-youtube-transcribed-captions-here/ here]] or [[http://www.youchew.net/wiki/index.php/User:Crazy_Luigi/Funny_YouTube_Captions_Gallery here.]]. To show that Website/YouTube's captioning system has ''indeed'' left a mark on the Internet, one needs to look no further than ''[[EnsembleDarkhorse/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic "Steven]] [[Memes/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Magnet"]]'', a FanNickname given to a purple sea serpent that appeared in one episode ''because'' of the line given out during one of his scenes, ''and became his canon name''.
* [=Pimpinmast3rDX=] is considered to be one of the worst ranters out there, but his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A-MdLEnJPVg commentary]] on Just Keep That In Mind is just outstanding. Rather than talking about how bad this guy is he talks about how good he is. Best of all, it was live recorded, to the point that even his computer screen is visible.
* Practically 98% of Go!Animate videos are this, with their effortless drag-and-drop animation, unappealing artstyle that looks like it was ripped directly from Seth [=McFarlane's=] cartoons, robotic text-to-speech voices that always mispronounce things, a limited amount of animation sets (i.e. Kissing is always done with two characters sticking their tongues out at each other), and a majority of the videos having a cut-and-paste plot of "so-and-so doing such-and-such and getting grounded for it". [[http://goanimatescreencaps.tumblr.com/ There's even a Tumblr blog that collects screenshots from many of these videos.]]
* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SHTqPVzpoMw This movie trailer]] for ''[=Killer7=]: The Movie'' is one of the most epic examples of this trope. Its scenario is set in the most laughable locations imaginable, it has horrible acting, horrible special effects and horrible pacing. Yet it tried to be ridiculously faithful to its source material, which results in lots of Narm that just really feels charming.
* The hammy voice acting done by a single guy in the official ''Toys/{{Bionicle 2015}}'' webisodes, especially when he begins using ridiculous exaggerated voices in an effort to make each character sound distinct. Some of the international dubs also count.
* For deep youtube diggers, [[https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCoJHscdepRxR24-FvgvQ5lw Compent]] brings you his short web animations Blakfist (and Don Spaghetti, the sequel), fused with [[ChromaKey stock green screen clips]], characters made out from hilarious stock photos, mediocre voice acting made by a minimal cast of two youtubers!! According to some commenters, it is a loose parody of ''Anime/KamenRider'' and ''Manga/JoJosBizarreAdventure'' and includes appearances of some [[NewMedia]] such as the Left Shark from Super Bowl, ''Film/CoolCatSavesTheKids'' by Derek Savage (as one of the doctor's forms), and few other obscure content.
** However, since of 18th March 2016 (its latest episode's upload) [[Vaporware the series isn't seeing light on the rest of the series]] due to the author stating his retirement after uploading Don Spaghetti Episode 2, but yet, you have the channel's stuff at safety.
** There was a slight (now removed) announcement which tells that there was supposed to be a [[GrandFinale]] of the series as a Blakfist and Don Spaghetti crossover, but soon it was taken down and so the series was taken to the forgotten pits.
* [[http://www.avclub.com/article/the-gentlemans-f-and-the-scourge-of-deliberate-med-91737 Discussed]] in an ''[[Website/TheOnion AV Club]]'' article, which explained why the site was so reluctant to hand out F grades. There are a lot of movies that have no redeeming factors and no good reason to watch them, but usually such movies are just [[SoOkayItsAverage bland and forgettable]]. To them, [[BileFascination there's a certain grandeur to having an F]] that [[StreisandEffect instantly makes people want to seek it out]], and since it gives the film attention, it should therefore be granted to movies that deserve attention in all the ways they screw up. Similarly, Creator/NathanRabin's ''My Year of Flops'' featured three grades: "Secret Success" ([[VindicatedByHistory a movie that's actually good]], [[ScrewedByTheNetwork but failed for reasons beyond it]]), "Failure" (a movie that's just plain [[SoOkayItsAverage mediocre, uninteresting, or unwatchable]]), and "Fiasco" (this trope).

[[folder: Other]]
* Christmas sweaters embody this. Uncomfortable and hilariously ugly. A relatively recent Irish tradition known as "The Twelve Pubs Of Christmas" is basically a pub crawl while wearing one of these ungodly items of clothing. Clothing shops have caught on and sell intentionally bad jumpers for this purpose.
* Many Danish weekly magazines feature a page full of jokes submitted by readers. These jokes are notorious for being really, really bad. In fact, a local radio-station once did a short program called "Jokes that are funny because they aren't funny", where they literally just read that week's magazine-jokes.
* Those who watched the Ride/DisneyThemeParks parade [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=woie1UgPeWk Celebrate! A Street Party]] were "treated" to the sight of such Disney icons as MickeyMouse, Disney/PeterPan, and Film/MaryPoppins doing the Macarena and dancing to "I Love Rock and Roll", among other things.
* In Indonesian language, a 'jayus' is a joke that's so bad it's good.
* In Japan, there's a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tondemo yearly award]] for books which are "amusing from a perspective that differs from what the author intends".
* Some genius made a mashup of a Music/JustinBieber song with a Slipknot one. Neither artist is exactly the best in its genre in the opinion of many. When you put the two songs together, it sounds weirdly catchy. Just... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kspPE9E1yGM watch it.]]
** Corey Taylor himself thinks it's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NDJEQ-7Q_cw&feature=related hilarious.]]
** Best (or worst) thing about it is that there are FAR too many people in the comments going "Anyone who likes this song isn't a true Slipknot fan!" "This is terrible, Bieber sucks!" etc. It's pretty funny to watch.
* The Louis Tussauds Waxwork Museum, in Great Yarmouth, has been described repeatedly as such because the waxworks are dubbed the worst ever made. It was paraded on a Series 44 episode of ''Series/HaveIGotNewsForYou'', where the guests had to guess who the waxwork was supposed to be.
* This trope is usually cited for Pabst Blue Ribbon's adoption by the {{hipster}} subculture. Hipsters in general are particularly known for adopting this as their aesthetic, with a fetish for "irony."
* ''[[http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/image/essay/1 Planes, Trains, and Plantains]]'', the self-proclaimed "worst term paper ever written." (The author explains the {{backstory}} behind it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCzxTzof_Pk here.]]) The amazing part was that it still managed to get a 61%, one point above failing, possibly because it still technically contained a correct overview of the story of ''Theatre/OedipusTheKing''.
-->"In the version which must have been the favorite of Sophocles's Athenian audience, Oedipus found sanctuary at Colonus, outside of Athens. The kindness he was shown at the end made the city itself blessed. [[SophisticatedAsHell Which was the gayest ending ever]]."
* The iPhone app [=SimStapler=]. The app just involves poking the stapler on the screen, and every ten times there is a voice that says "Splendid!". The stupidity of the app has garnered it a fanbase.
** When the iPhone just started, there was an app called "I am Rich" that cost $999 (the {{Cap}} for app pricing) and showed a ruby that would flash when you clicked on it. That's it. Humor was derived at: having enough money to burn on this app and b: schadenfreude in people failing to ReadTheFreakingManual and blindly buying it without checking the price.
** There is also the iOS 6 maps made by Apple to replace Google Maps for its iDevices... and failing ''[[EpicFail miserably]]''. While Google Maps was really helpful, this map system is utterly useless. It consists of terrible 3D modeling, utterly loathsome photography, and a habit of giving out directions and even ''getting several famous landmarks wrong''. If you want to see for yourself, go to the tumblr showcasing screenshots of the mapping system [[http://theamazingios6maps.tumblr.com/ here]].
* Two pieces of ''Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog'' FanArt have become much more famous and well-known thanks to their amateurish and poorly drawn quality than they could ever have been if they would have been mediocre or decent quality:

* [[http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2011/mar/21/top-dross-worst-world-dakota-elle-fanning This article]] discusses the So Bad It's Good phenomenon, only just stopping short of referencing the trope by name.
* Half the reason for the fidget spinner craze was people fawning over what an amazingly dumb fad it is.
* The Trabant, the epitome of TheAllegedCar and everything that was wrong with East Germany (and the Iron Curtain in general), still manages to have a cult following. [[http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/6381759.stm Seriously.]]
** Likewise, the Reliant Robin, an ugly three-wheeled "car" which did a barrel roll if you so much as looked at a sharp turn is a cherished (if often parodied) part of British culture, complete with enthusiast conventions and racing circuits.
* Any Popsicle modeled after an iconic character. Such as [[http://cdn.foodbeast.com.s3.amazonaws.com/content/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/sonic-popsicle.jpg this]], [[http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m4nnx7MSvv1qbj4t9o1_1280.jpg this]], and [[http://weliveinspired.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Get-in-Touch-with-Your-Silly-Side-by-We-Live-Inspired-.com_.jpg this]].
* Poorly designed and outdated websites that look like they are stuck in the 90s often embody this trope.
** [[http://www.lingscars.com/ LINGsCARS]] takes the cake for being the embodiment of everything that's wrong with these webpages with [[AdvertOverloadedFuture a downright nauseating wall of advertisements]]. It's just hilarious.
** [[http://www.dokimos.org/ajff/ This website]] is another example. Bonus points for the "You are possible not secure in your own personal faith" security message and [[TastesLikeDiabetes epileptic rainbow background.]] The abrupt cat meow and tacky, saccharine music complete the mix.
* This is the main appeal of dad jokes. In fact, you could say they're [[JustForPun So Dad, They're Good]].
* Not even [[VanityPlate opening or closing logos]] are safe from this. Case in point: A VHS company in Portugal called The Video Bancorp made an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dje_T7KLRIM extremely cheesy logo]] (logo is at 0:48 in the video) that's literally just a picture of a computer screen with the logo on it.
