Meta (from the Greek preposition and prefix meta- (μετά-) meaning “after” or “beyond”) is a prefix used to indicate a concept which is an abstraction from another concept, used to complete or add to the latter.
For example, this scene is considered meta as it stars real life father and son Charlie and Martin Sheen - Charlie pretending to be Rambo, Martin thinking he’s in Apocalypse Now.
Both recognise each other from another film, Wall Street, wherein they played father and son.
It is meta because it plays on other ideas and concepts to complete or add to the humour (see also post-modernism)
