* A commercial for ''VideoGame/SuperMarioKart'', emphasizing the combat aspects of the racing game, features an irate traffic cop who has apparently pulled over one of the racers. The list of offenses runs thus: "Let's see... you were doing 140 in a 35 zone... sideswiped three cars... I believe this bumper belongs to you... destruction... carnage... oh, and you didn't use your turn signal, son. I'm gonna have to write you up for that last one." This was also used in a commercial for ''Stunt Racer FX'' (so called because it used the FX chip) for the SNES in the early '90s.

* [[{{InvokedTrope}} Invoked]] by Overkill Software as part of their "FBI Files" update for ''VideoGame/{{PAYDAY2}}'', where - amongst other things - they added [[http://fbi.overkillsoftware.com a subsection on their site where you can look up the FBI dossier your chosen character has]]. You'll see the expected crimes (e.g. first-degree murder, destruction of private property, arson, and grand theft auto)... but in addition to that, you might find entries such as littering, disturbing the peace, maritime irregularity, and, yes, jaywalking.

* In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wed_bW8iiEw this review]] of the "Chintendo" [[ShoddyKnockoffProduct KenSingTon Vii]], DrAshens makes some positive notes in its attractive packaging and that a few of the packaged games are actually worth playing. He detracts the substandard build quality, most of the games being unplayable and that it cost him a small fortune, but what pushed him to score it 0/10 is that they forgot to package a handstrap for the remote.
