* Advertising/{{GEICO}}:
** The Gecko, when the company briefly considers using a campy cartoon version of him.
--> "So you've turn me into a cartoon. Lovely."
** Also, with the Gecko, Rocky and Bullwinkle. Rocky is the one who does the facepalm first. The Gecko just catches on to it.
--> '''Rocky:''' Aww, come on, Bullwinkle. They're named after-
--> '''Bullwinkle:''' First president George Rockington!
--> *Rocky looks at Gecko*
--> '''Gecko:''' That doesn't even make any sense, Mr. ...uh... Winkle.
** There's also a print ad that talks about saving money with GEICO being no laughing matter. The ad depicts an iguana stating "I-guana save you money" and the Gecko standing next to him, facepalming.

So you're the OnlySaneMan, and the lunatics around you are ''once again'' doing [[WhatAnIdiot something]] to make you question your faith in humanity. ''*sighs*'' It may not solve anything, but your hand to the forehead will have the dual benefit of temporarily obscuring your vision of the idiocy as well as cradling the on-coming headache. Variations occur, from pinching the bridge of one's nose to slapping one's forehead. One may also slap the forehead, sliding the palm of the hand down the face, possibly with a look of exasperation. If they're wearing a hat, expect them to pull the brim of the hat over their eyes in disgust. If they're wearing a cloak or a hoodie, then they're pulling the cowl before their face.

* ''TabletopGame/ChuubosMarvelousWishGrantingEngine'': this is one of the standard XP Emotions, indicating a character who is hapless and goofy and thus can earn XP by inducing amused facepalms among the other players. Of the Glass-Maker's Dragon core characters, this honour goes to the Wishing Boy/Girl, a character whose use of the ability to rewrite the universe with few hard and fast restrictions largely boils down to "I wish seagulls were cooler" and failed attempts to get ice cream.

* In the 2000 production of ''Music/JesusChristSuperstar'', Jusas's reaction to Simon and his calls for armed revolution in the song "Simon Zealotes" is a series of continual face-palms, followed by continual glares at Jesus for allowing it to get this bad in the first place.
