** Parodied in a quest of ''VideoGame/BorderlandsThePresequel'' wherein an unfortunate female announcer is saying ridiculous stuff (like "booty salads") because she just sits in a dark room and reads what's she's given, and who's giving her stuff is some bored Dahl soldier {{Mooks}}. Naturally, in true Borderlands fashion, [[ViolenceIsTheOnlyOption she hires you to kill them]].

* In Season 4 of ''Series/BlakesSeven'', the Terran Federation has spread its empire due to GovernmentDrugEnforcement. A secret resistance video shows Federations citizens with zombie-like expressions and numerals stamped on their foreheads, moving listlessly on elevators while a soothing voice tells them, "You are cared for. You are loved." [[MoodDissonance The voice continues]] even when the guards get bored and [[KickTheDog start shooting people for fun.]]

One of the sure symptoms of fascism in the media is TV screens, radios and loudspeakers (occasionally [[LoudspeakerTruck mounted on vehicles]]) blaring [[PropagandaMachine propaganda and messages]] from the Glorious Leader reminding his subjects to obey. LaResistance may or may not get the chance to [[HollywoodHacking hack into the system]] and [[VoiceOfTheResistance broadcast something more uplifting]].

* ''Film/MadMax''. The female dispatcher primly announces directives that bear little relevance to the brutal gang-plagued world the underfunded Main Force Patrol is trying to keep in line.

** ''Videogame/MassEffectAndromeda'' has two separate examples.
*** During the side mission "Dissension in the Ranks", they find canned orders sowing discontentment and treason through the ranks of the kett. Ryder tries to track down the source of the signal, only to find that they were intentionally led to a bunker with a communications system set up by the Primus, the kett's [[DragonWithAnAgenda second-in-command]]. The Primus wants to help Ryder take down the Archon (for her own benefit) and will attempt to strike a deal.
*** During Jaal's LoyaltyMission, Jaals former friend-turned-AbsoluteXenophobe, Akksul, has anti-alien propaganda blaring over speakers through his base. Ryder's team lampshades how annoying the repeated message is and that, knowing the type of person Akksul is, there's probably no way of turning it off.

* Hyperion-controlled locations in ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}'' tend to have this, although it varies depending on where you are. Mostly it's delivered by an automated voice, although sometimes it's a recording of [[BigBad Handsome Jack]] instead, and in Lynchwood it's always the Sheriff or [[OnlySaneMan Deputy Winger]].
-->'''Overlook:''' Hyperion is proud to announce the size of your bi-yearly medicine shipment has [doubled]! Congratulations on your [second] bottle of aspirin.\\
'''Wildlife Exploitation Preserve:''' Exercise caution when unloading slag barrels. [[VillainousDemotivator The life you save may be more monetarily valuable than your own.]]\\
'''Lynchwood:''' A few of you have learned that Handsome Jack is my boyfriend. If you think I'm just a pretty face who got this town as an anniversary gift, [[BloodKnight you know where to find me]].\\
'''Opportunity:''' Hey kids, do you know what your mommies and daddies gave up to live here in Opportunity? Literally nothing! You're paid to be here! I provide all the food and protection you need. [[ItsAllAboutMe Remember, we should all love our parents, but love me more.]]

* In ''VideoGame/SplinterCellChaosTheory'', during the mission in Seoul, North Korean troops have set up a series of loudspeakers that are blaring poorly-translated propaganda. Sam can shoot up the loudspeakers as a bonus objective, and will eventually find the broadcasting station by a command vehicle on the way to his objective primary objective, allowing him to permanently deal with ''that'' annoyance.

* Music/{{Negativland}}'s song "Christianity Is Stupid" takes the piss out of [[Film/IfFootmenTireYouWhatWillHorsesDo a terrible Christian propaganda film]] by {{Sampling}} a sermon that describes loudspeakers constantly blaring "Christianity is stupid! Communism is good! Give up!", repeating them obsessively and completely out of context over a musical backing of insistently pounding drum machines and ominous HeavyMetal guitars.

Estus Pirkle. The preacher describes what he thinks the U.S. would be like under totalitarian Commuist rule, with loudspeakers constantly blaring "Christianity is stupid! Communism is good!

The remix repeats these words obsessively and completely out of context over a musical backing of insistently pounding drum machines and ominous HeavyMetal guitars.guitars. Conceived and produced by the late Richard Lyons after he found an album by Pirkle in a thrift shop, it was later used to create [[https://thedailywrazz.wordpress.com/2009/12/21/we-dont-have-enough-data-negativlands-helter-stupid-20-years-later/ one of the group's more massive scandals]].

* Chinese propaganda towers in ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerGenerals''. They ''heal'' friendly units who hear them. You can even install them on the Overlord tanks and Helix choppers to turn them into pseudo-Medics.
