* Parodied in ''VideoGame/ZakMcKrackenAndTheAlienMindbenders''. The group has to unlock two doors using two provided keys, but one of them disintegrates as soon as it's picked up. What do you do? Well, the key in question was pretty big, so you use wire cutters to cut down the hairpin sign from a closed down salon and use the hairpin sign to pick the lock.
