* ''Series/ZyudenSentaiKyoryuger'' has a moment that gets PlayedForLaughs. When Souji and Amy are stuck in a trap and tied up, Amy reveals that she can operate a TV remote with her feet (so she'll be able to help get them out of their situation). Cue a flashback of Amy at home doing exactly that, only for the narrator to chime in...

** In the first episode, Sonic jumps on top of an S-Team race car during a chase, causing the driver to protest that they don't want any kids copying him; Sonic duly warns the kids in the audience never to stand on moving cars. This is possibly a parodical ShoutOut to the original ''Sonic Sez'' segments of the first animated series. The dub [[SpoofAesop plays it a little differently]]. Sonic does the same thing and receives the same complaint from the driver: "What if some kid tries this?" Sonic turns to the camera and says:

** In one episode, Senku and friends make gunpowder. The actual process is shown and described in detail, followed by a robotic version of Senku popping up and BreakingTheFourthWall to warn viewers that doing this WILL create real, explosive black powder, and that it is extremely dangerous.


* In Ride/UniversalStudios' ''[[Theatre/UniversalsHorrorMakeUpShow Horror Make-Up Show]]'', the hosts say this disclaimer to the kids in the audience, before they begin to demonstrate how various gore effects are done. "That's right. Try it at a friend's house."

* Averted with one refrigerator ad where a woman attempts to defrost her open freezer with a ''flame-thrower''. You'd think there'd be some sort of caption with a disclaimer warning people not to try such a stunt at home, but apparently, they forgot.

Added DiffLines:

* Ray Mears often eats wild plants in his documentaries because he's had a great deal of survival training and knows which plants are edible. He frequently warns viewers that it can be very dangerous to do this if you aren't highly knowledgeable about plants.

* In the Spike series ''Series/OneThousandWaysToDie'', the disclaimer is probably the one that gets the most to the point: "Do not attempt to try ''ANY'' of the actions depicted! YOU WILL DIE!" In bloody red letters to boot (no pun intended). And if that weren't enough to hammer in the point, they flash an "Idiot Alert" on the screen for particularly stupid deaths, warning you that not only will attempting what you're watching get you killed, [[TooDumbToLive but you will deserve it for being stupid enough to try]].
