* An interesting case with Twelve Foot Ninja and their song Coming for you. It opens as heavy metal, and then about 30 seconds in switches to salsa, followed by disco, back to metal and then threw a plethora of genres over the course of the song.

* Music/JohnFrusciante has often been compared to JesusChrist because of his long-flowing hair and serene disposition during live shows. It's even gotten to the point where there's an old joke on the Internet that goes, "Why do people keep comparing John Frusciante and Jesus? I mean, he's great and all... [[BiggerThanJesus but he's not as good as John Frusciante]]."

* 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. "Well doc, it's worse than either of us thought. I gave it my best, first with one hand, then both, then my wife joined in, we tried sticking it in a door, with a bottle opener, a meat cleaver, even the dog chewed on it for a while... all that, and we ''still'' didn't manage to [[spoiler:get this (Bleep!) bottle open!]]"

* In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII'', there's a series of optional bosses that lead up to the [[SummonMagic Esper,]] Chaos. The first one? Really (Bleep!) big. When you get to the second one, an even ''bigger'' monster is at the door... which promptly falls over, dead. And a little bunny-looking thing hops on top of the dead monster.

* 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.
