Page Type: trope
A certain statement or action was meant to be outlandish, and at the time the story it appears in was created, it was outlandish. But now time has passed and the statement or action is reasonable. This is different from Values Dissonance because it involves something going from unreasonable to reasonable, rather than moral to immoral or vice versa.
Example: Egon saying "Print is dead" in Ghostbusters (1984).
