* In Film/SpaceJam Daffy Duck [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar Kisses his own butt with the Warner Bros. logo on it]]. According to animator Dave Spafford [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DVEy4ksQ90E&t=635s in an interview]], This was intentionally done out of spite of the company. It even uses the Bob Clampet design of Daffy instead of the modern Chuck Jones one that most of the movie uses.

Added DiffLines:

* Creator/{{Marvel}} relaunched nearly all of their running books with ''ComicBook/MarvelNow'', changing the status quos drastically in sometimes controversial ways with the expressed purpose of strengthening their comic line. In the parody "Marvel: NOW What?!", the writer uses the High Evolutionary to explain all these changes in a satirical manner. The High Evolutionary is a ''villain'' with the goal of [[EvilutionaryBiologist forcibly evolving humanity]] against their will to make them stronger, and is opposed by heroes trying to save mankind from the inevitable chaos this would cause. [[DontExplainTheJoke The point, of course]], is that just like the High Evolutionary, the changes made by Marvel Now and its successors will place Marvel on unstable footing rather than make it stronger, as the fans will likewise be unable to deal with the sudden changes.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Literature/NakedCameTheStranger'' is a hoax novel secretly written by a team of ''New York Times'' reporters, which doesn't stop the main character from fuming about a critic in the paper who called her radio show "pablum for breakfast." She even tries to get Morgan Advertising to stop sponsoring the ''Times''.


* In ''Disney/TheLionKing'', Zazu starts to sing "It's A Small World." Scar [[BigNo freaks out]] and demands him to sing [[AnythingButThat anything else but that]]. [[Theatre/TheLionKing The stage musical]] uses "Be Our Guest". It doubles as a MythologyGag, since "Be Our Guest" was from [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the first Disney animated film that became a musical and paved the way for Lion King to come on Broadway]]. When ''Beauty and the Beast'' closed, it got replaced with [[Film/MaryPoppins "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious."]] In later runs, he sings [[Disney/{{Frozen}} "Let It Go"]] instead.

* A rare theatre example happened for one performance of ''Theatre/{{Beetlejuice}}.'' Rather than a usual TakeThat calling ''Theatre/{{Brigadoon}}'' boring and then saying, "Fuck ''Brigadoon''!," the titular character declares ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'' boring and says, "Fuck ''Music Man!''" instead. This is a reference to Shubert Theatre Organization evicting ''Beetlejuice'' from the Winter Garden Theatre before its original closing date so a revival of ''The Music Man'' could move in, resulting in a massive backlash from ''Beetlejuice'' fans.

* In ''Discworld/{{Maskerade}}'', Terry Pratchett manages a dig at the publishing industry and the morality of book publishers by having Nanny Ogg bilked over a publishing deal, in which her payment for a best-seller is the usual gratis author's copy of the book and nothing else. Granny Weatherwax plays catch-up on her friend's behalf and demonstrates that a publisher's worst nightmare is a cheated witch. They leave the offices with an advance payment of five thousand dollars.

* Rumor has it that there was one [[Creator/PBSKids PTV]] ident for [=WVIZ=] Cleveland which had the announcer saying "You're watching KID-TV on VIZ, the station with the bad show for kids!" - referring to the [[HowTheMightyHaveFallen then-infamous]] ''Series/BarneyAndFriends''. Although, if it exists (it's existence has been disputed by Closing Logo Group editors), it counts less as a TakeThat and more as OurProductSucks.
