Rubin also appeared on Saturday Night Live's second episode of its first season. He was announced as “Jerry Rubin, Leader of the Yippie Movement.” The sketch is a fake commercial for wallpaper featuring famous protest slogans from the 1960s and 1970s (e.g., “Make Love, Not War”, “Off The Pig!”, “Give Peace A Chance”, “Hell, No, We Won't Go!”, etc.). He ends the sketch by parodying a famous radical slogan as “Up against the wall-paper, posters!” (with the last word bleeped out in a reference to Up Against the Wall Motherfuckers).

Jerry Rubin appeared posthumously in the 2002 British documentary by Adam Curtis, The Century of the Self. He appears in episode part 3 of 4. This segment of the documentary discusses the Erhard Seminars Training, also known as The est Training, of which Rubin was a graduate. In his autobiography Growing (Up) at Thirty-Seven Rubin dedicates a chapter on his experience of taking the est Training. He explains why est appealed to him, even though he had initially resisted it:
