* The "Hey, Roosta, I've Just Had This Really Hoopy Idea" sequence in ''Radio/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'', in which Zaphod's cunning plan to escape AFateWorseThanDeath is to use a free Body Debit card to teleport both himself and his friend Roosta to the universe's most unbearable discotheque, full of RobotGirl dancers who make the club look full, and nozzles on the wall that spray hot artificial sweat at attendees. The music used for this sequence is a horribly distorted version of Music/TheBeeGees' "Stayin' Alive" played backwards with beats removed. It's shameless {{Padding}} of the "the hero escapes and gets captured again" variety, albeit thinly justified by it turning out that Zaphod's captors set the whole thing up just to fuck with his head, but groovy as well as hilarious.

* ''Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxyVol2'': The whole "Music/GuardiansInferno" [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MMMe1drnZY music video]], part of the Digital HD/DVD/Blu-Ray release for the movie, is one long, very gratuitous, very Disco sequence, slavishly following the style and limitations of a music video from the '70s. Featuring the main cast of the movie (although they're hard to recognize at first glance), the directors, Creator/DavidHasselhoff and Creator/StanLee.
