Where have you seen Nerf appear in movies or video games, music, TV, etc.?

I just noticed that a picture of a game designer or something from the credits in Guitar Hero 3 shows him holding a Tommy Mech 20. w00t.

Does posting in agreement somehow validate your standing in the community? Personally I think it just makes you look like a tool.

Ya I have seen a few AT3K in the background.

I have also saw a nerf gun in a pre-view for Fracture. Here is a link. Also many halo conventions have Longshot's that are painted black.

I guess you have some heavy duty industrial strength toilet paper holders. Do they advise you to wear eye protection when changing rolls?

A while ago somebody said that EA's Playground would have a nerf-based game in it. My little brother's friend has the game, and it does have a lame nerf-based "Dart Shootout" game, which is just a soft kiddie first person gallery shooter.

Nerf sightings eh?
Here we go.


Married with children. I saw Peggy bud and kelly unload on Al Bundy with Ballzookas.

The late show with David letterman, I saw him on load on buttercup with a tommy 20.

In Andromeda, I saw Nichian warriors holding painted and fully propped out SM3K's. Looked very shiny. It was in this one episode that involved a lake.

I was just watching the bonus dvd on Gears of War and I noticed they used At3K's and At4K's in the making of the game. They attached probes to them and then digitally turned them into Lancers and such. Can you imagine a Nerf Lancer!
The guys who created Gears of war shoot each other with nerf guns randomly during the work day. Guns seen were a BBB, AT3K, AT4K and a maverick.

In camp nowhere I remember seeing an Arrowstorm.

I am sure I have seen more, will edit later when I remember them.

If it hasn't already been done, this would be an excelent thing to add to the Nerf wiki.

I guess I'm not too "with it" because I've only seen 2 things nerf realated in the popular culture (both of which were already said).

I'm not sure if this counts, but hasbro has come out with an online computer game where it is a nerf war or something. And i'm not talking about that lame monkeybartv thing where you shoot in warehouses. But i am not compleely sure about the nerf comp. game. On this show my kid brother was watching where these gay little kid live in a hotel or something, they were shooting buzzsaws.

In Galaxy quest there is a Secret shot 2 and a lightning blitz and I think some other blasters held by some people dressed in alien costumes in the crowd. I watched it the other day. when the bad alien dude come out of the space ship I think a couple of foam arrows fly at him. I think that is the most I've ever seen.

This is really interesting. We could sticky this into "The Official Nerf Sightings Thread". By the way, I'm pretty sure I saw footage of a "nerf war" in some cartoon, I'll try to remember.

I have a quote from Robin Williams:

"I have a degree from Juilliard, which is kind of like having a NERF vibrator."

And I spotted some kids in "The Santa Claus 3" holding some LBBs.

In the show King of Queens one character (don't remember his name) pushed a button and a huge arsenal of Nerf Guns transformed out of the wall, and they actually said "Nerf." There were lots of N Strikes, and I think longshots and mavericks.
