* ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' parodies ''MacGyver'' as ''[=MacGruber=]''. (The sketch is having less and less to do with ''[=MacGyver=]'' as it goes along, however. Oringally, it made fun of MacGyvering, but later the joke turned to the title character being a slovenly JerkAss with a host of personal problems.)
** In the Pepsi ads, MacGyver shows up, at it is later discovered that MacGyver is MacGruber's father.
