* The Played to hilarious effect in the ''WesternAnimation/EdEddNEddy'' episode "Don't Rain on My Ed" has Ed". On his way to the Eds trying to overcome various obstacles candy store to get free jawbreakers, one of them being Kevin dropping jawbreakers (which has already been a massive HumiliationConga for the Eds), Eddy miraculously escapes Jimmy's hanging garden falling on him without so much as a scratch... only for a piano on Eddy (in retaliation to drop onto him out of freaking ''nowhere'', in a hilarious bit of DisproportionateRetribution courtesy of Kevin.

* ''Arne Nordheim'', honored contemporary composer of the experimental variety, was assigned an "honorary compartment" by the state of Norway for his achievement. This meant he had to move his costly Steinway grand piano from his flat on the fifth floor - out of the window with a cable and a lift. The cable broke, and the grand piano crashed to the ground. The man behind the wheel was baffled when the composer showed up in the window with this comment: "Did you hear that sound?"

* Happens in the video for Music/GreenDay's "Walking Contradiction". One of the guys walks past a mover hoisting a piano with a winch and pulley and finds a mirror. He picks it up, uses it to check his face, and shines a beam of sunlight into the mover's eyes. The mover lets go of the rope and the piano crashes to the sidewalk, narrowly missing one of the other band members.
