The [[StockParodies commonly spoofed]] scene for which everyone remembers TheFilmOfTheSeries of ''Film/MissionImpossible''. Creator/TomCruise hacks a CIA computer while dangling horizontally from two cables in a heavily protected room. To get into the room, he has to bypass a [[LaserHallway laser grid]] in [[AirVentPassageway a ceiling ventilation duct]].

* This exact trope -- a spy dangling from a body rope to hack into computers -- is used in the ''WesternAnimation/TotallySpies'' GameBoyAdvance game.

* [[http://redteams.net/blog/2013/rappelling-off-a-roof A penetration tester did the outside version once]]. It did however require that the windows be left open and access to the building roof. This flaw was then addressed.

* ''Series/NedsDeclassifiedSchoolSurvivalGuide'' had Ned attempt one of these out of the ceiling.
