Tropedia

  • Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Examples of Actor Allusions in Music Videos.


  • The Reba McEntire music video "Every Other Weekend" features a divorced couple played by JoAnna Garcia and Steve Howey, who played Reba's daughter Cheyenne and her husband Van on her sitcom.
  • David Bowie's Hard Rock group Tin Machine made a video for "You Belong in Rock and Roll" in which, among other things, Bowie poses in front of a mirror. At one point, he brings a pair of tweezers up to his eye, as if he were about to pluck something from it. This references an important scene in The Man Who Fell to Earth, in which it turned out that his character was removing something—namely, the contact lenses that disguised his alien eyes.
  • The Great Luke Ski spends an entire verse of One Night In Quarks Bar making one reference to Principle Snyder, Armin Shimmerman's character in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
