    Here's one from The Simpsons Treehouse of Horror XII. The Simpsons upgrade their home to the Ultrahouse 3000. When selecting a voice to add some personality to the home's AI system, Bart asked if they could use 007. Marge excitedly asked them if he meant George Lazenby. Lisa explained he meant Pierce Brosnan. Marge only accepted him because he played Remington Steele.

    Jump to the 8:15 mark:

    There are some references in Queen & Country and The Sandbaggers (interestingly enough it is the literary Bond mentioned):

    1. On Moden Family, Jay takes his infant son to see Skyfall. He pays for his ticket by handing his credit card to the cashier and says,
    "Bond...James Bond."
    2. USA's new show (yet canceled) featured the line "Daniel Craig eat your heart out" when main character Tom a Rush steps out in a tux

    What about the Cannonball Run? Roger Moore playing Seymour Goldfarb who thinks he's Roger Moore playing James Bond. Trademark eyebrow lift at 4:14. Even has a version of the Bond theme (Thomas Newman take note!)

    I sure miss Roger Moore as Bond!

    That Cannonball Run clip is hilarious. I feel like.watching the whole movie suddenly.

    The artist or the writer must be from this fanbase...

    Quality by Bond actors! :D

    Sean or Connery, is a universal quality standard, I do believe.
    When ordering anything of excellent standard, I simply ask for the Connery. Discriminating individuals nod knowingly.

    American Dad is guilty of several funny Bond references as well. They all escape me at the moment but..

    Top gear uses snippets of all the various bond soundtracks in almost ALL of there episodes especially the last few series.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel has a long scene towards the end spoofing all James Bond Ski chases (well at least Ohmss and Fyeo). Can't find any stills or videos at the moment, but don't miss it when it is shown again after having won a few Osacrs.

    Dan Brown's novel Inferno (2013) page 313

    "As Langdon continued on toward the elbow of the square, he could see, directly ahead in the distance, the shimmering blue glass dial of the St. Mark's Clock Tower -- the same astronomical clock through which James Bond had thrown a villain in the film Moonraker.

    That is called defenestration. It was what started the 30 year war. Some dude got thrown out a window.

    And in 1979 Roger Moore tossed the villaineou Chang out that very clock and onto a piano. Re-enter Jaws.

    It's not necessarily a "reference," but Sneaker Pimps' "Six Underground" samples Barry's score in GF when Bond finds Jill painted gold. I always found it to be a clever use of the music. A great song.


  • Posts: 4,622
    Yes, the GF sampling is quite apparent at about 1:00 minute mark and in the last 30s or so!

    A popular YouTube channel, Ownage Pranks, have uploaded a prank video, pretending to be James Bond to some guy who happens to be selling his Aston Martin convertible.
    Not sure if I would consider it pop culture percé, however I would have a look if you enjoy pranks.

    To tell you how popular it was, this sequel did in 2001 1 million viewers more than Skyfall did in France later. It is a comedy, and has absolutely nothing to do with Bond or even spy. It's about some Sephardic Jews in the garment business fighting some big company. But here are the titles, Bondian to the max. It shows what "iconic" mean...

    Warning: Thi is probably only funny for Bond fans being from or speaking German. And maybe not even all those people will get this. The basic thing is, they dubbed scenes from Bond films in Swabian accent (You know, Stuttgart. The place from wich Doctor Kaufmann claimed he could have killed Bond and making it look like a suicide). 007's taks is to sell oil stoves, radiator heatings and the like to, well, Dr. No.)

    Looks hilarious! but I can't undersrand a word of it. :) But it does look and sound funny.

    It is actually really funny. These guys did the same with DIE HARD 4.0, where Willis gets after a eBay-cheat...
