* An interesting example from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'': actor James Doohan (Scotty) had seen service as a pilot in UsefulNotes/WorldWar2, where he had lost the middle finger of his right hand in combat. Keen eyed viewers will note that in close-up inserts of Scotty operating machinery, his hands have all their digits (because the close-ups were doubled by another actor). But in long shots, its more obvious that one of them is missing... this applies to all the movies featuring the original series cast as well.

* Done in ''Film/{{Labyrinth}}'' whenever DavidBowie manipulates his magical balls. [[FreudWasRight Now get your mind out of the gutter]]. The hands shown are those of juggling artist Michael Moschen.

* The Sci-fi reality prank show ''Scare Tactics'' uses these more and more often as the show goes on. Considering the fact that the show is filmed by hidden cameras, you can bet that almost any embellishing shots (close-ups of equipment being operated, "special effects" sequences that the victim can't possibly even witness, etc.) were added in later. Well, either that or it's staged, but who knows...

* An episode of ''The George Lopez Show'' had a [[SpecialEffectFailure hilariously blatant example]], with the teenage niece displaying mad shuffling skillz at a poker game.

* On the ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' episode "RidingWithDeath," this device was used a handful of times so additional dialogue could be added that would tie together the completely unrelated plots of the two episodes smashed together to make the movie. Notably, a close-up of a speakerphone as we hear Ben Murphy say "Leonard, I hear you've grown quite the mustache while I was away."

* A ''{{Lost}}'' example of a insert changing the plot: when Ben killed his father, it was originally intended that he would just sit there as the gas that killed DHARMA killed him too. They decided him having a ''active'' role in the murder would work better, so instead we get close ups of hands holding a gas canister...

* ''KnightRider'' features several bizarre "Exposition Hands" sequences. At least once, for no clear reason, rather than doing an insert of an indicator on the dashboard, a close up of the indicator is shown on the dashboard's monitor. Several times, an insert of some feature being activated shows a hand pressing a button on the dashboard, even though there is no one in the car at the time. This latter is probably because the activation of the feature was associated with StockFootage that didn't take into account the fact that KITT could drive himself when necessary.

* Mercilessly spoofed in the Australian series ''Russell Coight's All Aussie Adventures'', where a running gag involved an insert of a handshake being played every time the title character met someone new in the bush. The insert never matched the two people in question, which really stood out when the new character was black, wearing gloves, sitting, or openly hostile to the main character (and thus not going to shake his hand).

* Mentioned in the DVD commentary of the 1st season of StargateAtlantis, which explained that the same hand actor is used for all inserts, thus giving big fat fingers to otherwise delicately-handed actor David Hewlett.
