* RoadMovie ''Thunderstruck'' is all about a few young men making a pact that if one of them dies, the rest will bury said person next to [[Music/{{ACDC}} AC/DC's]] Bon Scott. Naturally, the guy's being cremated. They steal the ashes from his ex (she demanded half of the ashes), but about three-fourths into the movie, the inevitable spilling of the ashes happens during a bar fight ([[ItMakesSenseInContext people who thought the ashes actually were Bon Scot's tried to steal it]]). Luckily, there's the sister of said dead guy with the other half of the ashes.

* Creator/SachaBaronCohen, being who he is, mocked up with this trope in the 84th {{Academy Award}}s. He arrived to the Red Carpet dressed as Film/TheDictator and holding an urn which he said was filled with the ashes of his "doubles-tennis partner" [[UsefulNotes/NorthKorea Kim Jong-il]] (whose dream, Baron Cohen claimed, was "to be sprinkled over the red carpet and Creator/HalleBerry's chest again.") As Baron Cohen showed the golden urn featuring the image of Kim Jong-il, he then proceeded to view the bottom of the urn while "accidentally" spilling its contents onto E! red carpet host Ryan Seacrest. The "ashes" were reported to be pancake mix.

Cut it down to the relevant parts, and page quotes don't get potholes anyway.
->''"If you see an urn full of ash anywhere in a work of entertainment, you can guarantee the ash will come out eventually. The only factor left negotiable is what degree of slapstick is involved. That was like a brief [[JustForFun/NotableReferencesToTVTropes tvtropes.com article]], but [[TakeThat without the 5000 links to obscure anime underneath]]."''

* One episode of ''AgentsOfShield'' has Agents Coulson and Simmons playing the part of father and daughter, taking mom's ashes by train to be buried. This trope is [[InvokedTrope invoked]], so the bad guys they are tailing will step the ash. The ash has something in it that lets Agent May track them from atop the train, using special [[SeeThruSpecs X-Ray Specs]].

* In one segment of ''TriggerHappyTV'' one of the actors posed as a grieving niece, sprinkling the ashes of her uncle from a ship. She made sure to say just enough to let the father of a nearby family know what was supposedly in the urn before spreading them. She had also positioned herself so that the wind carried said ashes towards the family.
