A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Avatar 11:12am fred:

Dear Mrs or Mr or Ms Trouble: that recall is going to cost me my bonus, so of course I don't care whether your airbag shreds you to bits. We don't have the parts anyway, I was promised I might get my bonus back if I can make enough of you go away. Just think about it: it would be smart for me to make sure you get that accident, but I have a conscience, I just have misplaced it at the moment

They wanted to fake it, of course. But it turned out to be easier to just go ahead and do it.

Agreed that "corniness" is largely a matter of context. And lies in the proverbial eye (or ear) of the beholder.

backtracking a bit...
the way i see the moon landings: they had the motive and resources to fake it and certainly lived (& live) by a code of ethics that supports deception on a mass scale; but on the other hand, obviously could've had the technology and also had the motive and resources to actually do it.
