* Combination of Live-Action TV and Real Life: ''[[Series/LateNight Late Night with David Letterman]]''. Viewers know of Dave's tendency to flip pencils up out of view coming out of commercial break. Studio audience members get to see the result; the fake acoustic ceiling above the desk is peppered with pencils, and his accuracy is epic (I went to half a dozen shows and he didn't miss once).

* In the [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad Email]] "couch patch", Homestar has a flashback in which he is spitting Teddy Grahams around Strong Bad's basement. One ends up sticking to the ceiling, and Homestar then starts trying to knock it down by spitting more at it (and catching them back in his mouth each time he fails; it's not indicated whether he ever succeeds).

in their living room, with the caveat that Schmidt & Nick have a bet about when it will fall. It falls off moments later, with Nick winning the bet, and forcing Schmidt to be his 'slave for 17 days'.

Something gets launched or is stuck to the ceiling, usually something sticky, and often some kind of food item. Sometimes it comes down, sometimes it doesn't.

May later [[BrickJoke fall on someone who has no idea it's up there]].

* ''BlackBooks:'' Pictured above. Manny sees a piece of toast on the ceiling whilst he is calling a cleaner. Curiously, the toast is stuck to the ceiling despite the fact that the jam side is showing. This is probably a comment as to how filthy the shop is (sticky ceiling). Later in the same episode, Bernard launches a piece of toast with jam onto the ceiling, illustrating the futility of the cleaning process. The second piece of toast eventually falls on Manny's head.

* In ''FriesWithThat?'', two burger flippers get into a burger flip off, where they show off increasingly complex moves, some require the patty to stick to the ceiling for a few seconds in order to do two at once. Alex mentions that he's attempted to do it with a cheeseburger, but the cheese caused it to get stuck permanently.

* [[Webcomic/SluggyFreelance Torg and Riff]] occasionally play a game known as "Gravity-Defying Ceiling Ninja". This involves lying on the floor and throwing darts at a dartboard attached to the ceiling- gravity-defying because the darts stick and stay up. The ninja part? That's what you need if the darts don't stick...
