** Shatner repeated the gag in the Roast of Creator/CharlieSheen explaining that he understood why Charlie was acting so crazy was because Shatner's generation made it more difficult for Sheen's to do edgy things because they were now passe. He cites his famous kiss with creator/NichelleNichols along with "Let the Asian man drive" as examples of edgy things done in his time that are just not so in the new millennium.

(shots of car in outline desgn rotating on computer screen) ''Built by Robots'' (Shots of cars on assembly line being tooled by long sophisticated robotic arm). ''But driven by Italians'' (Shots of rush-hour traffic in Rome and attendant motoring mayhem.)

* In the NicolasCage film ''Film/GoneInSixtySeconds2000'', one of the team members is now a driving instructor, and his most hopeless student is an Asian [[WomenDrivers woman]]. It's plain insulting.

* In the ComedyCentral Roast of Creator/WilliamShatner, Shatner at one point jokes about how brave a program ''Franchise/StarTrek'' was. For God's sake, they let an Asian guy[[note]]Sulu[[/note]] drive!
