Ass Shoves in live-action TV.

  • Appears regularly on 1000 Ways to Die, usually with loads of squick.
    • "Mercury in Uranus": The one about the hospital patient (who has been in the hospital numerous times for sticking objects up his rectum—a common sight in most hospitals) who killed himself when he shoved nine glass thermometers up his butt—all of which broke, gave him mercury poisoning, and cut up his large intestine.
    • "Butt Plugged": Also, the recently released convict who, when confronted by an officer, shoves a can of his illegal pepper spray up his ass to keep from violating parole. The cop pushes him against the side of his truck... and bam! Pepper spray in the colon.

    • "Eel Effects": The sushi school students who shove an eel up their drunk teacher's butt as payback for the abuse they struggled through during his lessons. More exactly, they pranked the drunk teacher via putting the eel in his pants; then the eel got into the guy's butt and began to bite its way in...
    • "Mary Lou Rectum": A washed-up gymnast dismounted off a trampoline... and got a parallel bar support jammed between her vagina and rectum.
    • "Fire In The Hole": A Neo-Nazi uses his dim-witted brother, who shoved a hand grenade up his butthole before getting arrested, in a jailbreak plot. The brother tries to poop it out, but it doesn't move. The Neo-Nazi tries to retrieve it by using a gloved hand up his rectum. He only succeeds in retrieving the pin and not only kills his brother, but also dies in the explosion.

    • "Colon-Gross-Oppy": A tomboyish college student competes with her male roommates in gross-out contests. She tries to one-up them in a farting contest by sticking a can of whipped cream in her bum to produce gas. Unfortunately, she dies from massive hemorrhaging since the gas in the can causes internal necrosis and hemorraghing.
    • "Critter in the S***ter aka Ferret in the Hole": A ferret legger (someone who tries to see how long he can hold ferrets in his pants) cheats by starving his ferrets to make them more calm, so they will not squirm or crawl out. This works until one of the poor ferrets goes up his bum and gnaws at his haemorrhoid, which bursts open, causing the man to bleed to death.
    • "Hi-Jacked Off": A drug addict who carjacks drivers makes the brilliant decision to hijack a former boxer. The woman decks the carjacker in his face and his anus gets stuck on a tire nozzle, which inflates his intestines and blows his guts out.

    • "Ten-Ass, Anyone?": Two McEnroe wannabes play a game of tennis. One of them, who sucks at tennis and has a bad temper, tries to kill the umpire with a broken tennis racket, only to fall over and get that racket shoved up his bum and through his perineum.
    • "Water-Logged": In a really weird example, a college student jumps from a cliff into a lake and hits the water at an angle and speed that causes water to rush into his rectum, rupturing his large intestine. He then passes out from massive internal bleeding and pain and drowns.
  • Played non-comedically in 13 Reasons Why, where Tyler gets a mop shoved up his ass after being jumped and beaten by Monty and his goons.
  • Justified in All Creatures Great and Small, since veterinarians sometimes must insert one arm into a cow's rectum to feel for problems with a calf or to guide something they're doing in the uterus.
    • In one story, James is routinely taking a cow's temperature and the thermometer suddenly disappears inside her, so he has to get soaped up and go digging for it. This is why, before the advent of digital thermometers, one always tied a string to the non-business end of one's thermometer. Those who still use glass thermometers still do this.
  • In a season 3 episode of Babylon 5, Sheridan has to remove his communicator before going into a room to negotiate it with a terrorist. He initially tries to hide it inside his shirt, so Garibaldi can listen in for clues, but Garibaldi points out (correctly, as it turns out), that the terrorist would think to look there. The solution they come up works a bit better, albeit with the drawback that they can hear what Sheridan had for lunch.
    • And his touch-activated comlink beeps when he sits down, tipping off the terrorist.
  • Blackadder
    • The second series has the "Baby-Eating Bishop of Bath and Wells" who belongs to a group of clergy who were Loan Sharks. If you didn't pay on time, out came (or perhaps in went) the red-hot poker.
    • In Blackadder the Third, when Prince George describes what the Naughty Hellfire Club does to people who don't pay their dues:
      Prince George: They pull your breeches down and push a large radish right up your—
      Blackadder: —yes! Yes! Yes! All right!... There's no need to hammer it home.
      Prince George: As a matter of fact they do often have to—
  • Quite often happens in Bottom, both in the TV show and the theatre/movie spin-offs. Items inserted include a pencil, a policeman's baton (complete with side-handle), a stick of dynamite and the entire contents of the next-door flat.
  • In the first two episodes of Chris Ryan's Strike Back, John Porter takes a moment (before walking into a terrorist trap) to wrap a swiss army knife in cling-wrap and insert it into his ass. After being captured and verifying that the terrorists are holding the woman he's trying to rescue, he removes the knife and uses it to escape his cell.
  • The Colbert Report did a segment where Stephen volunteered for a proctoscopy as part of a stealth Take That! to Glenn Beck.
  • Mason from Dead Like Me once tried to smuggle drugs in a condom or balloon he stuck up his ass. Then a drug-sniffing dog caught him, and the security people did a cavity search (and didn't find the balloon, but did rip it; intoxication and something very loud and unpleasant in a bathroom stall ensued). Even worse—Mason was an undead Reaper. Meaning he technically overdosed to DEATH but still had to live through the feeling of overdosing to death.
  • From the Sci-Fi Channel movie DeathlandsHomewardBound. The protagonists have been invited to dinner by the local Baron. As he's a mad despot that many would love to kill they're naturally searched by his Sec Men first.
    J.B. I can't believe they found every single one of my weapons!
    Jak: Even the one you hide up your ass?
    J.B. Shove it up your ass!
  • Doctor Who: In "Bad Wolf", after being hit by the defabricator ray, Captain Jack produces a small foldable gun out of nowhere while completely naked.
    Zu-Zana: But... that's a Compact Laser Deluxe!
    Trin-E: Where were you hiding that?!
    Jack: Ladies, you really don't wanna know.
  • On ER, someone asked Carter what the strangest thing he'd ever removed from someone's rectum was. He thought for a moment and replied, "Bowling trophy."
  • Everybody Hates Chris: Main character and Butt-Monkey Chris is pretending to be a Jerkass in order to impress his crush. That ends when he inadvertently yells at his own mother. There is a dramatic heartbeat during the Discretion Shot, followed by a scene in the hospital where the doctor mentions that, while it could be removed, the shoe was a goner. Insert a truly revealing X-ray for a Funny Moment.
  • Game of Thrones:
    • It's ambiguous whether Brienne's vindictive stabbing of a rapist in "Valar Morghulis" is this or Groin Attack.

    • What caused the majority of his problems in Season 3 was leaving a rectal thermometer inside Tritter... for two hours. To be honest, you could have stuck a rectal thermometer anywhere on Tritter since he was a complete ass. Worse than it sounds though, because Tritter was bent over when he did it, and if he were to move too much, it would shatter inside him.
  • At the end of the installment of Joe Schmo 2note  in which Eleanor "The Weeper" grows a spine and quits, she tells Austin that he can take his pearl necklace and half-hearted locket and shove them up his ass. This is re-played in the recap of the episode leading into the next episode, resulting in this...
    Derek: Did he? Find out now on Joe Schmo 2.
  • Kamen Rider Decade
    • In the Den-O arc, the Final Attack Ride for Den-O involves attaching the DenGasher to Yuusuke, who is in the form of the Kuuga Gouram, making an Epic Flail. There was a cut to Yuusuke grabbing his ass in surprise when the connection was made, and then, when Den-O starts swinging him around, he was howling in pain...

    • In the Episode "The Agony and the Extra C," Jefferson ends up in the hospital. They look at the X-ray. There up in his lower colon is one of the boots Marcy was wearing in the previous scene. This was Marcy's reaction to seeing Jefferson's tattoo, which was screwed up to read "I Love Marty."

  • Seinfeld
    • The episode "The Fusilli Jerry" has Kramer expounding on the comedy inherent in the proctology profession.
      Kramer: Have you ever met a proctologist? Well, they usually have a very good sense of humor. You meet a proctologist at a party, don't walk away. Plant yourself there, because you will hear the funniest stories you've ever heard. See, no one wants to admit to them that they stuck something up there. Never! It's always an accident. Every proctologist story ends in the same way: "It was a million to one shot, Doc. Million to one."
    • Later in that episode, sure enough, Frank Costanza falls onto Kramer's title pasta model, and it gets... lodged up there. Last line of the episode is him saying, "It was a million to one shot, Doc. Million to one."

  • Still Game has Creator/Craiglang's resident war veteran, Shug, describing some of his adventures as a communications officer with the Commandos as he fixes Jack & Victor's answering machine. Actually, a subversion.
    Shug: Ye see, ye would think that this (*holds up very small tape) wid be the smallest tape ye could get. Not so! Durin' the war we were issued wi' smaller ones tae take tae the Resistance—when ye were crossing borders ye' had tae secrete them aboot yer person. D'ye ken where I kept mine?
    Victor: (Looking bored and smug) Let me guess Shug, up yer arse?
    Shug: Naw Victor. That would be the first place they'd look. I tucked them intae my bell-end.
  • An episode of Supernatural has Dean retrieve an object from the trunk of the Metallicar. Thanks to some general douchebaggery from The Trickster in this episode, Sam was the car. He comments about how uncomfortable it feels. Later:

  • That '70s Show has a Running Gag where Eric's very grumpy and snarky father Red would threaten to shove his foot up people's asses whenever they pissed him off, but he never went through it during the show's run. In the Grand Finale Hyde calls him out on it, asking him if he's ever actually done that. Red then says that he did do it once back on Iwo Jima, but the details are too gruesome for him to say, which is pretty bad considering that Hyde is the only other guy on the show that Red sees as mature and grown up (not even Bob, the only other grown male on the show).
