Not references per se, but they are on TV: I'm going through some channels. One of them has a movie called Fragile with Flockhart and Roxburgh, and the next channel has Red with Mirren and Willis. I just found that a bit funny and amusing.

^I remember there was some car commercial a few years back that played the opening strands of Thick as a Brick.  
I can understand your anger at me, but what did the horse I rode in on ever do to you?

I have no knowledge about the quality of Volkswagens nor any knowledge about their company, but I thought it was a (relatively (relative to most commercials on TV (although the use of a Rush song might make me biased))) funny commercial

in the Adventure Time episode "I Remember You"

Ice King: Hello? Anybody home?
Marceline: (To herself) No... (She goes outside her house.) What are you doing here? I told you not to come around me!
Ice King: (Laughs) Uh, yeah, I know, but... I was hoping you could help me write a song—one that could help me get some princess action.
Marceline: I'm not gonna help you pick up on chicks!
Ice King: (Desperate) Come on! We could be a prog rock duo! I'll even split the fans with you. I get the princesses, and you get... whatever it is you're into. Sounds good, yeah, I think it does! (Beat; Marceline is scowling.) Ee-yoop!
