* A Honey Nut Cheerios commercial from the early 1980's has a woman who just came home from the store. She tells her husband two things. The first was that Honey Nut Cheerios had no cholesterol, and the second was that she wrecked the car. The husband screams, "WHAT?!" Although the reason he did was in reaction to the firstthing she said (even though the second was more worthy of that kind of reaction)!

* A couple go to the doctor for bedroom troubles. The doctor gives them a jar for a semen sample and tells them to come back in a week. One week later, the couple returns.

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', there's a series of optional bosses that lead up to the [[SummonMagic Esper,]] Chaos. The first one? Really (Bleep!) big.

* In Cybershell's LetsPlay of the Genesis [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic]] games, he measures how annoying an enemy is by using a "(Bleep!)-o-meter". When he gets to the [[GuideDangIt infamous]] Red Barrel in Carnival Night Zone, the gameplay stops and slowly zooms in on the barrel as Music/AlsoSprachZarathustra plays in the background. After all that buildup, the Red Barrel gets a score of ''one'' on the Meter as Cybershell starts ranting that it wasn't that difficult to get past.

* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "Foil" starts off as one of his fairly standard "food parody" songs until he says "Oh, by the way, I cracked the code" at which point it turns into a song about a ConspiracyTheorist.

* ''Film/TheFugitive''
** After Kimble's dive off the dam, Kimble is seen walking down a road at night. A woman stops and offers to give him a ride. Kimble climbs in and the car drives off. We then cut to the U.S. Marshal's office in Downtown Chicago where Cosmo Renfro tells Gerard, "Yes! All right, Sammy, we've got him - shacked up with some babe over in Whiting", and Deputy Erin Poole replies, "She left work tonight and took him home." We are led to think that Gerard and his men have received a tip about Kimble's whereabouts and they're on their way to grab him. The next morning, they storm the house, and it's revealed that the tip was actually about [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Copeland]], the other fugitive who survived the train wreck alongside Kimble. He is shot by Gerard after he tries to take Newman hostage. The "babe" that Cosmo was referring to was the girlfriend hiding Copeland.
** An extremely quick one when Kimble first returns to Chicago; the first car he sees is a police car which startles him with its lights and siren, but it has nothing to do with Richard.
** Later, Kimble is having another dream about his wife when he wakes up, hearing cars screeching to a stop outside. He looks out and sees a Chicago Police Department tactical assault team advancing on the house. He panics, thinking that the police have come for him. He follows the noises of the officers as they search the house. He breathes a sigh of relief as he realizes that the police are actually there to arrest a pair of drug dealers who live upstairs. Unfortunately, one of the dealers, once in custody, rats on Kimble upon recognizing his picture on a Wanted poster.
** [[spoiler:Dr. Alec Lentz]] is set up to be the BigBad of the movie and orchestrator of Kimble's downfall. However, we learn halfway through the film that [[spoiler:Lentz was [[BusCrash killed in a car crash]]]] soon after Kimble's incarceration, and that the real villain was [[spoiler:Dr. Charles Nichols]].

* [=GilvaSunner=] is a famous Website/YouTube personality, known for uploading entire soundtracks of games for listening pleasure. In early 2016, an account with the name Music/GiIvaSunner (note that the third letter is not an L but an I) started making videos that would start off sounding like what they promised, before veering off into a mostly-unexpected direction. At least one or more of the people who run the channel seems to be aware of WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} memes, given that many the posts have a remix of the theme from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''' NES game (a reference to the "Grand Dad" moment from one of Joel's bootleg streams), and then there's the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN1t1HplhI0 infamous edit of the Honeyhive Galaxy theme]] from a certain other stream.
