* In the infamous Levi's "Boombastic" ad from the mid-[[TheNineties Nineties]], an old city building labeled "SCHMITT HOTEL" in neon letters is on fire with a woman stuck on top. In order to rescue her, the protagonist rides a police motorcycle up a telescopic ladder and simply jumps off it onto the roof, leaving it to fly right into the neon sign and taking out the "M" in the course. [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar What's left]]?



* In ''ComicBook/{{Asterix}} in Britain'', the protagonists try to get their stolen barrel of magic potion back from a cart thief. Not only does said thief reside in a street with exactly identical houses, his address being number LVII, but Asterix, Obelix and Teefax accidentally break into number LVIII where the last I has fallen off at some point in the past.



* Done deliberately by the protagonist and antagonist in ''Film/ShootEmUp''. During a rooftop gunfight, Smith shoots out a neon "Faulk Truck & Tool" sign to read, "FUK U," while saying, "Fuck you, you [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment fucking fuckers]]!" The camera pans to show the word "TOOL" next to it, whereupon Hertz shoots out the L to have it read, "FUK U TOO".

Added DiffLines:

* ''Otto -- Der Film'' has something that might be an arcade labeled, "FLIPPERBUDE". It only serves to give the protagonist a hint as most letters fade out, leaving behind "_LI__E_B__E" ("love" in German).

* For the New Year's Eve special of ''Series/TheRedGreenShow'', Red sets up a lit sign that says "TOAST YOURSELF AT NEW YEARS EVE". Then most of the lights burn out, leaving "YOU FAT ARSE".

* World Book encyclopedia sets use IdiosyncraticCoverArt where the volumes spell out "WORLD BOOK" when placed in the proper order.

* In ''Zapped!'' the door to Prinipal Burnhart's office was regularly vandalised into Burnfart - so regularly that it was mispronounced like that by a teacher once. On the public address system.

* Throughout the United States, you can find large tracts of undeveloped land owned by various agencies of the federal government, most of which are available for "recreational" use. Some of these areas allow recreational shooting and some don't. Those that don't have lots of prominently-posted signs advising visitors. In the same vein as the ''Film/WyattEarp'' example above, if you find one of these "NO SHOOTING" signs, it is ''guaranteed'' to be riddled with bullet holes.
