* A commercial for the upcoming-at-the-time ''[[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver Pokémon Crystal]]'' had a team of explorers encountering a huge door with some writings on it, and try to push it open. Near the end, the camera cuts to a wide shot of the door, which clearly says "PULL" in Unown letters. We also see two natives discussing it:

However, most of the time a person who tries to open a door the wrong way will reverse course when it refuses to budge. If the door ''still'' doesn't open, ''that's'' when people get confused.

* Discussed by Creator/DougWalker in his review of the ''WesternAnimation/AvatarTheLastAirbender'' first season episode "Avatar Roku," where the heroes try and fail to open a door just before a commercial break. Doug was sure that it would turn out they just had to push the doors to get inside instead of pulling, like they were doing, and was pleased when the writers did something much more clever.

* In the German film "Münchhausen" (sorry, don't ask which one) the [[TheMunchausen selfsame]] Baron of Lies and the Young Hero compete for the love of the heroine. Their game of one-upmanship epically fails at the next door. One pushes, the other pulls, until the heroine shows them that it's a slide door.
