* In the ''Series/{{Psych}}'' slasher-film pastiche episode ''Tuesday the 17th'', Shawn walks into a room and sees the VictimOfTheWeek Annie (who is, at the time, only considered "missing") silently sitting on the floor, facing away from him (in a pretty obvious set-up for the dead body variant of ChairReveal, sans chair). The tension implied by the recognizable horror trope is enough that it's pretty easy to miss the fact that Shawn is reciting the first part of the bridge from Michael Jackson's ''Smooth Criminal''.

* On ''Series/LastWeekTonightWithJohnOliver'', when seeing that Brazil built a stadium for UsefulNotes/TheWorldCup that now was mostly used as a bus yard, John notes how [[Music/JoniMitchell "they paved paradise and put up a parking lot."]]
** John says that a successful Kickstarter on a Music/LionelRitchie giant inflatable head should get its creators locked up "all night long. All night. All night."



* In ''{{VideoGame/Metal Gear Solid 3|SnakeEater}}'', if the player starts the game by saying "I like [=MGS2=]!" in the opening screen, Snake will [[SillinessSwitch be wearing a mask in the opening cutscene and greet the Major by saying "Can you hear me, Major Tom?"]]

* ''Literature/TheDescendants'' loves this. To date, it's used ''Hurt'' by Trent Reznor, ''Once in a Lifetime'' by Talking Heads and ''Sympathy for the Devil'' by The Rolling Stones.
** The ''Sympathy for the Devil'' one is arguable, because the characters were quoting the ShowWithinAShow.

** Also at the start of "Ghost Pirates of the Sargasso", we see Major Tom's last conversation before his spaceship crashes; the conversation is mostly David Bowie's "Space Oddity" and "Ashes to Ashes".

* ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'':
** In his first "Ghostbusters" game review, he pondered why you're capturing ghosts if they're not harming anything, and asks: "Because busting makes you feel good?", a line from the ''Franchise/{{Ghostbusters}}'' theme song.
** This happens with the show's own ThemeTune in "[[YetAnotherChristmasCarol AVGN: Christmas Carol]]":
--> '''Nerd''': Why are you seeing me?
--> '''Ghost of Christmas Past''': To take you back to the past!
--> '''Nerd''': To play some shitty games that suck ass? No thanks.
