* Played straight in the DannyKaye movie ''The Inspector General''-- a musical version of this trope: the three heads advise him to be "arrogant, elegant, and smart," with each head representing one of those characteristics.

* In ''VideoGame/StrongBadsCoolGameForAttractivePeople, Episode 3: Baddest of the Bands'', whenever Bubs suggests Strong Bad could pay off his debt by working at his store rather than jumping through elaborate hoops to arrange, sabotage, and win a battle of the bands, a floating pixelated head of Limozeen's Larry Palaroncini appears over Strong Bad's shoulder and says "Rock and Roll, Strong Bad!"

* Played with in ''WesternAnimation/TheBrakShow''. Thundercleese warns Brak not to feed his pet, which Brak then sings about. Later in the episode, he tries to recall what Thundercleese told him to do, only now Thundercleese is singing the song instead, and the song is a recommendation to feed the pet.

* In ''Webcomic/{{Newshounds}}'', when Ferris [[http://newshounds.keenspot.com/d/20121217.html realizes]] Sam's bail out is [[OnTheMoney exactly as much]] as his movie deal. Lampshaded by one of the reminders saying "Dental plan" and "Lisa needs braces" instead.

* Used very nicely in ''FatherTed'' when Ted is in anguish over whether or not he truly does deserve an award (The Golden Cleric). He wanders down a beach, skipping stones and brooding as the heads of Mrs. Doyle, Father Jack, Father Dougal and [[ItMakesSenseInContext the cast of]] ''Series/{{Ballykissangel}}'' float past. Jack cackles evilly at him, Mrs. Doyle comments that he's probably the ''second'' best priest in the country and Dougal...floats towards the screen, looks puzzled and turns around to leave the way he came.
* In an episode of ''[[Series/ThirtyRock 30 Rock]]'', Pete Hornburger is confronted with the choice of whether or not to cheat on his wife. At the climax of that plotline, the woman he's considering the affair with is in the bathroom, making her move, when Kenneth Parcell pokes his head through the vent and entreats him not to do it. {{Lampshaded}} when Tracy Jordan pokes his head in: Pete says "I suppose you're going to tell me to do it," and Tracy responds, "No, I was just looking for the bathroom, but yes you should do it!"
* Used in an episode of ''{{Spaced}}'' when Daisy almost reveals to Marsha that she and Tim aren't a couple. Floating-head versions of Tim and Daisy appear and attempt to counsel Daisy on how to fix the problem.
