* The ending of the "Rocket" video: The premise is that some children come upon an interplanetary transmission of the band performing the song, and decide to build a rocket so they can watch them play in person. Because of TimeDilation, by the time the kids get there, the band are grey-haired and old, but still playing the same song. What might make the punchline funnier is that, instead of achieving this effect with make-up, they were just played by extras who could pass for older versions of the band members.

Because of TimeDilation, the transmission took so long to reach earth, by the time the kids get there, arrive, the band are grey-haired now old and old, but grey (an effect achieved with {{Timeshifted Actor}}s)... And still playing the same song. What might make the punchline funnier is that, instead of achieving this effect with make-up, they were just played by extras who could pass for older versions of the band members.
