The 1983 Sony "Video LP," We're All Devo (a compilation of music videos & short films by band Devo), uses the framing device of having cheesy Big Entertainment exec Rod Rooter (Michael Schwartz) watching (and rejecting) Devo's stuff. He prefers his company's mega-metal group and its lead singer, Numero Uno (represented by a poster of David Lee Roth of Van Halen with someone else's face pasted over Roth's). His daughter Donut (Saturday Night Live's Laraine Newman) thinks they're "el vomito."

The band also gets mentioned in Devo's 1996 CD-ROM game, Adventures of the Smart Patrol.
