Motion -- zero velocity but still having acceleration

What would be a example of a body having zero velocity but still having acceleration, except the example of a body projected vertically upwards and at the highest point it has no velocity but an acceleration equals 'g'?

There is always a frame of reference where a body has zero velocity.

An obvious one comes to mind: consider a pendulum at each end of its motion.
