"product misplacemANT", the ninth episode in the third season of Disney Channel's A.N.T. Farm, features the character Chyna losing her phone and having to enter a karaoke competition to get it back. In the karaoke scene, Chyna is dressed in something like a Hatsune Miku cosplay, with a "schoolgirl outfit", black arm sleeves, painted-on "anime eyes", and a light blue twin-ponytail wig. The episode was badly received among the VOCALOID fandom, largely because of its low-quality satirization of the Japanese culture.
