* Used frequently by [[SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker the title character]] in ''WebVideo/TheJokerBlogs'', but justified in the fact that there actually is a cameraman for the Joker to Aside Glance at, and that the Joker already has Medium Awareness and regularly breaks the fourth wall in the comics. One of the funnier uses:

* SelfDemonstrating/TheJoker tends to do this, due to him being one of the only [[Franchise/TheDCU DCU]] characters who is self-aware of his status as a comic book character. Meta-awareness is frequently part of the Joker's toolbox. Near the end of the "Emperor Joker" comic storyline, he actually yells at the comic's ''artist''.

* Performed several times by members of the BlueOysterCult in the video for ''Joan Crawford Has Risen From The Grave''. Guitarist Eric Bloom performs the action when he discovers a carelessly discarded pair of panties which appear to have been thrown from an upstairs window; he turns to camera and raises an eyebrow with an expression that says "Well, what do ''you'' think is going on here?''. A little later, a procession of almost-innocent looking CatholicSchoolgirls emerge from an upstairs room and trek downstairs past most of the band while they perform. they are followed after a discreet interval by keyboards player Allen Lanier (looking, for the video, like the sort of very seedy individual who ''would'' be in an upstairs room with a bunch of schoolgirls), who slinks downstairs trying to look inobtrusive, but registers very obvious alarm on realising the camera is watching him before taking his place, hurriedly, at the keyboards. Lanier's guilty aside glances at the camera recur throughout the video, as do one or two knowing grins from the girls.

** After telling [[WrongGenreSavvy Sunohara]] that since Kappei kept talking to him about Ryou, it means he trusts him, right? And therefore he must be interested in him right? So it's OperationJealousy riiiight? He doesn't actually give an aside glance, since he doesn't have a sprite. But he does say briefly '...what?' to the reader before continuing on.

* Used by several characters in both the US and UK version of the faux-documentary ''[[Series/TheOfficeUK The]] [[Series/TheOfficeUS Office]]''. Characters who are "allowed" to shoot nonplussed or aside glances at the camera tend to be the most self-aware (Jim Halpert from the US series uses this device most often, often several times an episode; for the UK version, it's usually David Brent or Tim). Other characters almost completely ignore the implied film crew and seem intent on retaining as much GenreBlindness as possible.

* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'' tends to do this a lot. Usually after Peter has just pointed out something using his {{Genre Savv|y}}iness
