* If playing as an Apex in ''VideoGame/{{Starbound}}'' and inspect a standard issue chair, the player character will note that they are mass produced in factories... and add that they once found the words "Help us" engraved in a chair frame like this.

* The episode titles the first part of ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'''s fourth season form the message "Help me. I'm trapped in a DVD factory. They took my thumbs. Two weeks without food. Tell my mom I love her, but not in that way. Love, Maurice PS: Yes, in [[ParentalIncest that way]]." In a twist to this trope, the second half's episodes titles make up the factory's response: "Dear Consumer, we are a humble factory. Maurice was caught unionizing our labor. [[RedChina President Hu]] forbids it! Due to constraints of time and budget, the ramblings of Maurice cannot be erased, so sorry. Please do not notify our contractors. Especially [[BitingTheHandHumor the animal]] [[Creator/AdultSwim Keith Crofford]]!"
