** The Onion is often anvilicious non-ironically, as the writers' very liberal bias is worn like a badge. One article was simply about people in the future scolding people in the present for not legalizing gay marriage (also, in the future, every single person in the entire world is pro-choice).

* Film/YoungFrankenstein's musical [[AllMusicalsAreAdaptations adaptation]] is similar to the example of ToxicAvenger stage adaptation; compared to the movie the sexual humor is a lot more heavy-handed.
* Creator/HenrikIbsen dropped some heavy anvils in his play {{Theatre/Brand}}. The title character is a notorious carrier and tosser of anvils all the way, and one scene, showing a starving and freezing mother with a child begging for clothes and shelter on christmas eve, is anvilicious in spades. The anvil dropped is so heavy it actually kills off one of the lead characters in-play (Agnes, the wife of Brand).

* 2084 ([[https://tellygunge.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/2084-chapter-1/ Part 1,]] and [[https://tellygunge.wordpress.com/2013/02/08/2084-chapter-2/ Part 2]] (NSFW) The message, being about what happens when copyright law [[GoneHorriblyRight goes horribly right,]] isn't exactly subtle about it's message. The story concerns 2 people, one into [[CoveredInGunge WAM]], trying to deal with a dystopia where copyright is abused to the point where you can't basically do anything without an ipad {{Expy}}, and do anything unless you pay hefty royalties to the creator. Granted, this was written after [=SOPA=] and [=PIPA=] occurred and failed to pass, but the unrealistic description of future copyright law can come off as jarring.

* The animated short ''[[https://youtu.be/hRiWgx4sHGg Sometimes You're a Caterpillar]]'' is intended to teach audiences about how not everyone is as privileged as they might be. The story itself was effective enough in its execution, but quickly drops the pretense to deliver it in no uncertain terms, then hastily wraps up the plot.

*** The same idea has since been spread to other countries. This troper remembers doing it in Australian schools from around Grades 6-9. The idea behind it though was to get the "silly" terms out of your system, so you could learn to say penis, vagina and whatnot without feeling embarassed (in theory). I should add that unlike the system above, the kids would have to say the things listed.

** Parodied [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1g-s-pghtYQ in a fake Mr T PSA]] on Series/KeyAndPeele, where all the anvils he throws down are about him.

* Creator/BradJones reviewed [[http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/bj/dvd-r-hell/31261-rock-its-your-decision Rock: Its Your Decision]] on ''WebVideo/DVDRHell'', a little-seen TV movie produced by fundamentalist Christians about how rock is evil and how it'll cause you to go to Hell. It doesn't merely lob anvils, it ties them to cruise missiles and fires those at you. After the main character of the movie talks about how people at rock concerts didn't just sit quietly and listen, they got up and ''danced'', like the music was ''controlling them'', Jones jokes that the movie's [[AnAesop Aesop]] is that emotions are bad and if you dance to music, laugh at comedy acts, or cry at funerals, you'll go to Hell.
