* Played for laughs by country artist Joe Diffie in "Prop Me Up Beside the Jukebox," when he requests that the audience do this for him when he's dead. He even asks for a stiff drink and a suitable date: a blonde mannequin. In the music video, a pair of friends do exactly this for their deceased buddy, breaking into the funeral home and carrying his body out between them. They make the corpse nod to the waitress, wave at a blonde a the bar, and clap to the music, while passing off his tendency to fall over as ordinary drunkeness, before finally leaving the corpse propped against the bar's jukebox at closing time.

* ''FireEmblem: [[VideoGame/FireEmblemTheSacredStones The Sacred Stones]]'' has [[spoiler:Orson, who [[LoveMakesYouEvil betrays his kingdom so he can be with his wife, Monica]]]]. She was a recently deceased IllGirl, and he took her death quite hard. So much so, that the BigBad got him to turn traitor in exchange for his wife back. Unfortunately, he could only reanimate her corpse as a zombie, but [[spoiler:Orson]] is so crazy that he simply doesn't notice. He talks to her frequently as if nothing was wrong, and even remarks on how he'd never forget her birthday, and promises a special surprise for her. You only ever see her map sprite, (A standard female civilian) and hear her speak, barely, ("Darling... Darling... Darling...") after killing Orson, but the shocked reactions of the main characters to her tell us that's probably for the best.

* In episode seven of ''WebAnimation/SaladFingers'', the titular character finds a bisected, rotting corpse. He claims it's his brother Kenneth in shore leave from [[GreatOffscreenWar the Great War]] and has dinner with him. Given that the whole series is a big MindScrew and Salad Fingers has a rather skewed sense of reality, we never find out if the corpse really is his brother or just some random dead person.

* One short story tells the tale of a lonely funeral home director who has taken opportunities to steal bodies and create a family for himself. One day, the corpse of a young kidnap victim is mistakenly delivered to his door, and even though he knows it's risky, a little girl is the last body he needs, and he adds her to his family. Sure enough, the police are suspicious and promise to come back with a warrant. After the police leave, he calmly opens his gas valves, goes back into his "family room," sits down with his family, tells them he loves them and lights a match.
