* BriefsBoasting: * When Music/{{Outkast}} was on the show in 2000, [[https://youtu.be/w4BjOOvIz1o Andre 3000 came out and performed in briefs, ski boots, and a rainbow pipe-cleaner cape]].
* DiscoDan: There was a fictitious TV movie called "Daddy Still Has a Flattop", about a black man, played by Creator/ChrisRock, [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin who still wears an 80s flattop hairdo by the late 90s]], embarrassing his wife and son.
* GuyOnGuyIsHot: There was a skit where two men cross paths on the street and it looks like they're about to fight… and they make out instead. All you can hear from the audience is women {{squee}}ing. You can watch it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkbOtrTmS04 here]] (even if the end was just spoiled out of necessity).
* IWasQuiteAFashionVictim: In the first episode of ''Series/TheChrisRockShow'', Creator/ChrisRock claims he's actually the second Chris Rock, much like how [[TheOtherDarrin there were two Lionels on]] ''Series/TheJeffersons''. He shows a picture of "the original Chris", which is a picture of himself with [[EightiesHair a Jheri curl hairdo]].
