The discovery of (16684) 1994 JQ1 clashed with the movie "Pulp Fiction" (1994) and the photometric observations clashed with movie "Memento" (2000). These two movies were original because the story was told through chronologically disordered chapters, so at the end of the movie the viewer had to reconstruct all of them.
