* [[Series/ItsGarryShandlingsShow It's Garry Shandling's Show]]: Well, more like Censor Dot. In one episode, Garry strips down to just a black dot on a chain covering his genitals.

Since the show's whole gimmick was NoFourthWall and LampshadeHanging, Garry looks into the camera and explains that he always wears a Censor Dot just in case.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebVideo/{{Petscop}}'': In Petscop 7, Paul (and possibly his friend too) covers up an object in a child's room with one of these. The video ends with a screen saying that they're also planning to censor a big present with a sticker on it (which eventually appears in Petscop 9), something on a wall in a black house, and something written on a chalkboard in the future.
** In Petscop 9, instead of censoring the present with a sticker on it, Paul ends up censoring a giant, red, upside-down, spinning pyramid that comes out of the present.
** In Petscop 10, what is presumably Tool's answer to Paul's question (which was "Where was the windmill?") was censored.

* While largely obsolete now thanks to [[TheInternetIsForPorn the Internet]], many found it odd that advertisements selling pornography in magazines censored the images in the ads - because, after all, it was ''already in a porno mag''. This was for two reasons: first off, the magazine may be softcore (simple nudes) but the advertising images hardcore (involving explicit sex)[[note]]hardcore magazines aren't sold in places like convenience stores, and the presence of the images would make the magazine hardcore[[/note]], and secondly to ensure that people who already owned the magazine didn't just [[ADateWithrosiePalms use the free picture]] and thus not use the ad to buy the product.
* An underwear sales presentation for the shopping channel Creator/{{QVC}} showing two very attractive women wearing hideously unflattering undergarments went viral on YouTube. When the British sales pitch reached QVC viewers in the USA, it provoked lots of complaints. The reason is apparently that both models had very visible erect nipples under their vests. This highlighted the gulf between British and North American social attitudes to visibly erect female [[NippleAndDimed nipples]] under clothing; it's no big deal in GB but is apparently almost as bad as toplessness in the USA. [[note]]American style guides for women's clothing do not like this ''at all'' and consider it socially unacceptable.[[/note]] Strangest of all, [[http://www.insideedition.com/headlines/12976-curvaceous-qvc-lingerie-models-gain-online-admirers-real-women-real-curves American websites covering the item]] ran edited excerpts from the show but still considered it necessary to run a Censor Box over the chest of a woman who was otherwise fully covered! [[ValuesDissonance Link is presumably NSFW in the USA but OK everywhere else]]....
