      Apparently, in many episodes of Two and A Half Men, Jon Cryer's character, Alan Harper, drives a silver Volvo which is referred to as a "1989" MY, but is in fact a 2001 V70.

      In the episode below, he tries to commit suicide in it. Fun.

      A friend told me about the 2011 British RomCom, called "Love's Kitchen", which features a cameo from Chef Gordon Ramsay and some extensive use of a 940 wagon.

      While this thread is fun for me, it seems the "Internet Movie Cars Database" already has a head start on all of these matters, including the previously alluded to Swedish TV shows.

      There is a Volvo, looks like an XC90, in the new movie ? "The Hard Way" with Michael Jai White and Randy Couture (and Luke Goss.)

      You have to look for it, but it is in there.

      There's a Volvo (think V70....brain fart) in a Dogs Journey!

      In the Amazon show Bosch, Harry’s ex-wife Eleanor drives a gray XC90. Later on in the show, the daughter drives it.

      I spotted a 2007 XC70 with ABLs in some random medicine commercial the other night, but we weren't at home, so I couldn't rewind and see what it was.

      In the episode entitled "The Coup" of the US version of The Office, we see get some partial views of an S80 that is owned/driven by Jan Levinson.

      In this "behind the scenes" clip, it looks to be a silver P80 with Cetus wheels. So probably an 855.

      Was watching Magnum P.I. (the original one) and Tom Magnum chased a Lincoln Town Car in a 740 pretty well in "L.A. Part 2."

      She even proposed to him, of all the absurd and ridiculous times to propose to someone.. 🙂

      In Ronin - one of the opening setting up scenes, they move guns from a nice-looking P80 car into the Audi S8. This a true classic movie. Perfect.

      Nice! Not sure how I missed this post, but that nose definitely looks like a V70R to me. I think that if I were running guns, a V70R would be a great choice!

      Not a TV or movie find, but I wasn't sure where else to post this link. I found this thread over on Grassroots Motorsports forum...

      Fun thread. I've been aware of Volvos making guest appearances in movies and on TV for too many years. I've often wondered if Volvo has a product placement agency that does just a fantastic job, or , can it just be a matter of only seeing what you want to see.. It was hard not shouting "There's one!" when I REALLY started looking. It must be the placement folks, just like there's a reason you see a Coke can instead of a Pepsi can, or no label at all if no one wants to pay.

      A.D.A. Reagan (Bridget Moynahan) can be seen driving a Volvo and flicking its remote lock sometimes in Blue Bloods. Looks like a 2011 or 2013 or something she has.

      There are others

      Newer Progressive Insurance commercial features a classic wagon. Who hasn't screamed in their car at some point?

      I know that when I set the parameters of this thread, I said I wasn't looking for actual Volvo commercials (as if I have any control over what gets posted here), but someone shared this one for the P80 V70 XC over on Bring A Trailer and it's just too darn awesome not to link here. Sandstone never looked so good!

      David Letterman's red 960 wagon makes a brief appearance at the beginning of the broadcast for 2018 Mark Twain Prize (given to Julia Louis-Dreyfus). The bit goes that a couple representatives of the prize come to pick up the trophy from Letterman (as the previous recipient) and he doesn't want to give it back. Eventually, he makes his escape in the Volvo complete with laying down some rubber. I did a quick search, but couldn't find a video of it anywhere. If someone has a link, feel free to share.

      And, as long as we're on the subject, the car was also featured in Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee. Not sure why we didn't already share that one. Video can be viewed at the link below.

      We have talked about Jerry in comedians and coffee episode with Letterman.
      Just not here.

      Watched a part of a movie the other day and saw a p80 XC.
      Ben Affleck drives it.

      Then saw A Simple Plan with Bill Paxton driving this.

      There are at a dozen movies with volvos usually wagons to show the owners as level headed. There was one with Harrison ford and another with brad Pitt and the mirror gets ripped off.
