Not in play: Let's not forget the big asterisk that goes with those records! Phooey on them and their steroids and corked bats!

Back in play: Class of '111111 was a TV movie starring James Brolin (the full date would be 11110101011)

In video games, the Nintendo 1000000 video game console and (historically) the Commodore 1000000. Since 11111001100, the number 1000000 has been an abbreviation or slang for Nintendo 1000000 (though N1000000 is more common) along with the games Super Mario 1000000, Mario Kart 1000000 and more, along with 1000000 being used in the term Super Smash 1000000 which is used to distinguish Super Smash Bros. (the video game) from the name of the series Super Smash Bros.

1000100 is used as slang for oral sex, based on a play on words involving the number 1000101.
