--> '''ANNOUNCER:''' Attention please: the motion picture you are about to see contains certain very stomach-upsetting scenes. The producers feel they have a moral obligation to warn each and every ticket buyer of this fact. Although most people have the ability to cope with the sudden nausea and shock, there are some people who cannot handle it. Test audiences, after watching this motion picture, suggested that a warning of some sort be included before each scene they found to be upsetting. Therefore, the producers have inserted a special warning buzzer and picture of a patron reacting to the scene. When you see the man turning green and the buzzer sounding, those of you who feel you cannot take it, please do not look at the screen. Here is what to look for.
--> '''Cue shot of man gagging into handkerchief accompanied by the buzzer'''
--> '''ANNOUNCER:''' It is your only warning of the scene coming up. Thank you for your co-operation.

* In Japan, anime and toku broadcasts usually have this: "When watching this program, please make sure the room is well lit, and do not sit too close to the screen." This is largely a response to ''Anime/Pokemon'''s infamous episode "Electric Soldier Porygon", which had a strobe effect that triggered seizures in some viewers. Other countries will include warnings for shows or news reports that contain flashing images or flash photography, and some video games will warn people not to play them if they have epilepsy.

* One you might see [[UsefulNotes/AustralianMedia in Australia]] from time to time: "This programme may contain the image and voice recordings of people who are now dead." UsefulNotes/AustralianAborigines consider it taboo to directly discuss the dead or mention them by name, so this warning is especially common for works that portray them.

* PARENTAL ADVISORY stickers were the controversial brainchild of Tipper Gore and her [[MoralGuardians Parents Music Resource Center]], spurred mostly by Tipper catching one of her daughters listening to a Music/{{Prince}} album that mentioned the word "masturbation". The 1985 [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d65BxvSNa2o Senate Labor and Commerce Committee hearings]] saw Music/FrankZappa, Dee Snyder of Music/TwistedSister and John Denver testify about their responsibilities as musicians and the fact that the stickers, a seemingly innocuous choice-enabling tool, were a form of censorship. The stickers were immediately parodied, including by satirist [[Music/DeadKennedys Jello Biafra]], whose spoken word album ''High Priest of Harmful Matter'' gives you the history and origins in hilarious detail.

* While it is very rare, if Creator/{NBC}} feels the need to preface its shows with such a warning, it does so with [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vbr6uYwxp0Y a blood-red splash-screen]] and the deep-voiced NBC announcer reading the caption, "Due to violent content, viewer discretion advised." If it is especially violent (for example, every episode of ''Series/{{Hannibal}}''), a tiny "Viewer Discretion Advised" caption pops up on the bottom of the screen at the start of each and every act.
