* Doing the "Act 1, Scene 1" scissor clap in front of the Camera before a take when filming. Used to be done so you could sync the sound of the clap to the frame where it clapped from where the two were different physical media. In the age of digital filming it Serves no purpose whatsoever, but amateurs who film on their iPhone still do it since they recognize the ritual from countless documentaries and films that they learned the craft from.

* The Kastom people of Tanna, Vanuatu, had a myth about a deity who had travelled to a distant land and married a powerful woman. So, when Queen Elizabeth II visited with her husband Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in tow, they took him to be that deity and to this day consider him to be a divine being.

* There's a (thankfully small) cult in Russia that worships [[RescueRangers Gadget Hackwrench]]. [[http://www.odditycentral.com/news/russian-cult-worships-female-cartoon-character.html Seriously]]. So the next time you encounter a bit of FanDumb, just think of this group and realize that it could be worse.

** If ''that'' counts, then it's OlderThanDirt, since it basically applies to any and all tutelary deities (objects or fetishes venerated as household "gods"), which have existed since prehistoric times. The [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venus_of_Willendorf Venus of Willendorf]], made around 30,000 years ago, is thought to be an example.

Compare MightyWhitey and InsufficientlyAdvancedAlien. Contrast with SufficientlyAdvancedAlien. If the society worshiping the religion is [[AfterTheEnd post-apocalyptic]], try AllHailTheGreatGodMickey. If the religion worships technology itself rather than as a means to an end, you have a case of MachineWorship.

''WesternAnimation/{{Catdog}}'' features this. When the titular conjoined duo get stranded on an island surrounded by constantly speeding cars that inexplicably keep racing in a circle around the island, Cat crafts a God out of an old tire and some planks of wood. He prays to be told what to do and begins to hallucinate. The face that appears is that of a demonic looking panther with [[GlowingEyes glowing]] [[RedEyesTakeWarning red eyes]]. Its advice?:[[{{Autocannibalism}} "eat each other."]]
