* ''Series/TheColbertReport'''s Stephen Colbert uses this a lot, although it's blurred out. He often uses the playground prank of shielding his middle finger from view while doing so, then pulling the shield away once he's lowered his finger to deny that he was ever doing it.



* In one episode of ''Series/HowIMetYourMother'', Barney attempts to do this to Ted. Unfortunately, [[ItMakesSenseInContext he's wearing a penguin costume at the time]], so he refers to it at [[{{Pun}} "flippering you off".]]

* The novelization of ''Film/CrimsonTide'' features a scene that probably ''should'' have made it into the movie. As USS ''Alabama'' leaves Puget Sound, Washington on the surface, [[Creator/GeneHackman Captain Ramsay]] observes that "Now is as good a time as any to wave goodbye to Ivan." Ramsay and the rest of the bridge watch immediately look straight up and flip the bird [[GenreSavvy at the Russian surveillance satellite that they expect to be watching them]]. Ramsay then gives the order to clear the bridge and dive the boat.

--> The sound of a small motor made me aware of a video camera in the room as I sat and took care of some overdue business. I scrunched down, and watched the camera watch me. Not wanting to miss my chance at giving the giving the wrong impression I flipped the camera the bird. Then I said, “fucking perverts.”
--> I did get a slight giggle when the camera abruptly pointed to the opposite corner. Though I can’t say for certain, I was fairly sure the motor was not that fast.
