** Creator/HenryRollins illustrates a version in the video ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rA5xWG3cXFQ Talking From the Box]].'' (look for it around 8:20). He recommends, after breaking up, to turn up any of the albums by Creator/RonnieJamesDio, attaching a towel to your neck with a paper clip, and singing into a celery stalk. He points out that if you get caught like this, head back, one leg up on a chair, there will be no way you can claim you were doing anything else.

* ''Series/GetSmart''. Max is watching a newsreel about a famous Depression-era outlaw (also played by Don Adams). The outlaw is just as bumbling as Max, as he strikes this pose only to break off the bumper of his car when he puts his foot on it.

* [[http://www.captainmorgan.com/ Captain Morgan rum]], as seen above, is the TropeNamer. There is a series of television advertisements where everyday people in random places strike the pose, finishing with "There's a little Captain in all of us."\\
\\
One ad starts with two guys at a bar, standing next to a pair of girls who are sitting down. The guys are panting with exertion for about half a minute...then the camera pans out to reveal that they're doing the Captain Morgan pose, with the girls using their legs as stools.

* ''Film/TheGiantGilaMonster'' uses this pose to a ridiculous degree. When it was featured on ''MST3K,'' they dedicated a whole host segment to pointing out how many times the pose was used, complete with a compilation of still shots. "You know, a smart fellow could put his knee up on such a thing."
