* In ''WebVideo/FalloutNukaBreak'', Ben the ghoul is asked if he can remember anything from before the bombs fell, and all he can come up with is "[[EarWorm/Advertising By Mennen]]", though he can't remember what it means. The other main characters assume it to be part of a religious hymn, and start using the phrase similarly to "by God". Mennen is the company that makes, among other things, Speed Stick deodorant, which have "By Mennen" stamped on their packages, and many [=80s=] and [=90s=] ads for Speed Stick and its relatives had the jingle at the end (although since the company was acquired by Colgate-Palmolive back in 1992 the name's been gradually phased out from advertising).

* In ''Franchise/TheDarkTower'' series, Roland's world has "moved on", and in some places remnants of the old technology are used as icons of worship, such as an Amoco (since absorbed into BP) gas pump. Roland's home city also based itself on the legends of KingArthur.

** There's also the "Cult of the Once and Future King", in New Britain, which worships KingArthur and UsefulNotes/TheBritishRoyalFamily as divine. It's practically a step away from turning the ''British Empire'' itself into a god.
