* In ''Series/TheBigBangTheory'', in the episode where Howard gets into an embarrassing situation with a robot arm, he programs the arm to respond to a snarky Sheldon comment, by having it turn to him and jerkily, but very obviously, making a finger-gesture. This is not the American middle finger, but the British V-Sign with two fingers. Compare the skutter (maintenance robot) in ''Series/RedDwarf'' who makes a similar derisive gesture to Arnold Rimmer after being provoked by a similar superior sneer.

Howard's reaction suggests he was aiming for something else (the controls aren't great).

A form of CrazyCulturalComparison. Compare VictoryPose and HappyDance, where someone wants to be a bit more showy with their celebration. For the single-finger version, see FlippingTheBird.

* The logo used by the back-in-business Film/{{Ghostbusters}} in ''Ghostbusters II'' has the ghost making a "V" sign, which serves the dual purpose of being a TakeThat to the authorities that shut them down and [[PaintingTheMedium denoting that it is the second movie in the franchise]].
* In the second ''Film/{{Hellboy}}'' movie, one of the confiscated pictures Manning has of Hellboy is of him flashing the V Sign at the camera. He presents it with an exasperated "He ''posed'' for this one."
