* Have you dreamed you were the backseat driver? Relax. It's a very, very common recurring dream. There are many folk explanations for this dream, but none have yet earned scientific validation, so take any explanation or interpretation with a grain of salt.

* In ''Film/StarTrekBeyond'', Spock and [=McCoy=] hijack one of [[BigBad Krall]]'s drone ships. [=McCoy=], who has some experience piloting one, grabs the controls that are slightly above the main compartment, while Spock is busy with the communications equipment in the forward area. As Spock continues to give [=McCoy=] advice, the Doctor exclaims, "Damn backseat driver!", causing Spock to shut up about the piloting.

* The ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}'' GaidenGame ''GorkaMorka'' had a skill called Backseat Driver. When a character with the skill was in a vehicle the driver could use their stats instead of his own for some driving checks.

* ''WesternAnimation/DuckTales'', "[[Recap/DuckTalesS2E2SuperDuckTales Super [=DuckTales=]]]": When Launchpad is attempting to start the U.S.S. ''Jumpstart'', both Scrooge and [=GizmoDuck=] yell instructions at him from their chairs. Launchpad dismissively calls them "backseat astronauts."

to:

* A twist on this idea is "backseat gaming", which tends to crop up in livestreams and LetsPlay videos, and involves giving unsolicited advice or directions to the player (or more severely, ordering them around). While everyone has their own thresholds, the general rule of thumb is that you should only offer help if the player specifically asks for it; otherwise you're just going to piss off the player, and more than likely incur the wrath of the moderators.
