* The Literature/DoctorWhoNovelisations often had the Doctor's floating head, especially on covers by Chris Achilleos who traditionally did the heads in monochrome and the rest of the picture in colour. See some examples [[http://chrisachilleos.co.uk/the-art/dr-who-illustrations.html here]].

* Lampshaded in dialogue by ''TheMist'': after a thunderstorm demolishes the main character's studio, destroying the (amazing) movie artwork he had been painting, he laments that the studio will just opt for "some floating heads" instead of extending his deadline.

* One of the posters for Scorsese's ''TheAviator'', which carried over to the DVD cover. It frankly looks like a plane being chased by a giant floating [[LeonardoDiCaprio Leonardo DiCaprio]] head.
* ''K-19: The Widowmaker'' or [[http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/7/75/K_nineteen_the_widowmaker_ver2.jpg Harrison Ford's head is judging you]]. Also available with bonus Liam Neeson in some editions.
