In a recent commercial for PS3 motion tracking games, a montage of said games play as a (''real'') operatic duo sings in the background. It all ends when a random houseplant sets on fire, shocking the entire family.
The Terry Crews Old Spice commercials tend to include random explosions. Makes sense though, you have a buff black man who uses Old Spice. Can't get much more awesome than that. Of course, they're made by Tim and Eric.
On one occasion Old Spice Guy claimed that if he and his rival Fabio were ever in the same room their combined pizazz would destroy the universe. They did, but thankfully all that happened was a bit of reality rearrangement, some time travel, things went wibbly wobbly, and after a heartfelt speech from Isaiah got past-Fabio to back down, everything went back to normal. *Old Spice jingle whistle*
Very heavily used in a commercial for Verizon, wherein Michael Bay spent the entire commercial saying how he doesn't just have things, he has awesome things. And every time he points out an awesome piece of furniture, appliance, or even his POOL, it erupts in a huge fireball.
Actualy it's to keep unit power levels moderate. Because, let's face it, Hayate is basically a living magical nuke, Nanoha has more firepower than a battleship and Fate can pretty much beat anything she can touch. Those three alone pretty much constitute an army. And then put all three into the same unit.
Apparently both are true.
Sengoku Basara. The characters are all so manly and hotblooded that something is bound to spontaneously explode from the sheer overwhelming awesome at least once an episode.
At one point, the release date for Tiger & Bunny's BTB image song was pushed back two weeks. The "official" reason for the delay was that the awesome combination of elements that comprised it produced an unexpected chemical reaction and blew up the sound studio.
Invoked in Excel♥Saga when Nabeshin concludes that anything capable of undoing the "Freaky Friday" Flip in the final episode will have to be highly volatile, so he simply lights a stick of dynamite and holds it out toward those affected. It works.
Power Rangers RPM, being one of the more meta series, actually covered this. Ziggy asks Doctor K why things spontaneously blow up behind them when they morph, and she explains it as run-off energy from the morphing process being shunted. In the same episode, Flynn has to fix his malfunctioning morpher, but realizes that doing so will have a lot more feedback than usual. His solution? Weaponize the ensuing henshin explosion and take out a squadron of mooks.
Also present in Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers during the original Ultrazord sequence. There's a massive explosion as the Mega Dragonzord completes its descent into Titanus' carrying bay.
Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! has a title sequence so awesome that its creators' heads appear to explode into showers of kitten heads. And that's the least concerning thing about the show.
In iCarly, it's said the two most powerful warrior classes in a World of Warcraft parody can't fight because the resulting epic battle would be so volatile, it'd destroy the multiverse.
"If tvtropes.org had a lovechild with damnyouautocorrect.com, the universe would disappear in a singularity of win, you know..."
Mr. Torgue's life philosophy in Borderlands 2: absolutely nothing can't be made better by blowing it the fuck up.
The Portal of Awesome in Billy Vs SNAKEMAN. If putting two Memetic Badasses together causes that much devastation, imagine what would happen if you did that with seven. If a village's leader is able to open it up, it means the village is about to go down in a blaze of Awesome. Once that happens, everyone in the village gets a bonus, and the leader is allowed to build up an even more awesome village from the ashes. The Wasteland is filled with the fallout of these Awesomizations.
The opening title of The Spoony Experiment is a black screen showing the letters: "The following sequence may be the most awesome thing to ever precede a rant on a game or a film. Your head may explode."
From Badass of the Week, discussing Ellen Ripley, came this line describing how a mecha suit fighting a space monster seemed like something you'd just have to imagine, "the fact that it's an actual scene from a movie makes my head want to implode from the G-force that the "Awesomeness Field" around my computer is generating."
This one is kind of a Memetic Mutation in Brazil. In a satirical video where resident Memetic Badass Captain Nascimento (from the movie The Elite Squad) was trying to interview Chuck Norris, the two of them started to differ in opinion and it seemed they would break into a fight. Right then both stopped and decided it would be better to call another guest, since the two of them fighting would trigger a chain reaction that would make the universe implode.
There is YouTube video of Norio Wakamoto performing a parody of the Giga Drill Break(er). It was bleeped out, and someone in the comments section suggested that it was because, if that combined awesomeness was left unfiltered, it would destroy everything within 15 miles of the speakers.
In Chester A. Bum's review of The Expendables, he says that Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzeneger being in the same room could have caused the world to explode. He then remarks that, given the movie's love of Stuff Blowing Up, this is exactly what happened.
"Keira Knightley, along with Natalie Portman may hold the key to the salvation of the Universe itself. If Samuel L. Jackson and Mr. T were to ever team up, they might well keep their beer in the same fridge. Any fridge used by both Jackson and T would be the coolest object known to mankind, so cool that it might slowly bring all atomic motion to a halt. The only way to avert this would be for Keira Knightley and Natalie Portman to make out, thus producing an equivalent level of hotness to counter the sheer coolness of the Jackson/Mr. T fridge."
When Obscurus Lupa was writing down awesome lines Burt says in Tremors II, her notebook eventually blows up.
