From the "Something You Can Do With Your Finger" episode (07/12/00) of animated Comedy Central show South Park. Kid Eric Cartman (voiced by Trey Parker) has a dream that he and his pals are in a boy band called Fingerbang and make ten million dollars. He figures it's a message from God and attempts to make it real. Since he only has 3 friends, Stan Marsh (voiced by Trey Parker), Kyle Brofslofski (voiced by Matt Stone) and Kenny McCormick (also voiced by Matt Stone), and all boy bands have 5 members, they hold auditions and accept Wendy Testaberger (voiced by Mary Kay Bergman), who is not a boy.

None of the kids really know what the band's name means. Stan's dad, Randy (voiced by Trey Parker), forbids Stan to be in the group, because he was in a boy band himself, The Ghetto Avenue Boys. He hit the heights, but then quickly crashed and burned. As the rest of the band waits for Stan at their gig at the mall (they can't go on with only 4 members, they'll look like idiots), Mr. Marsh has a change of heart and drives his son to the show. But then Kenny is killed, as usual, and they're a foursome again. Then Mr. Marsh steps up to replace him. Delusional after performing in front of a sparse, indifferent crowd, Cartman and co. reject the imagined pressures of fame and dissolve the band.
