* ''Podcast/MarekVsWyshynski'': Prior to [[OnceAnEpisode every episode]], the titular hosts will ask a Question of the Day and invite listeners to give their answers via e-mail or {{Twitter}}, with the best answers (as judged by the hosts) being read on-air at the end of each show. Answers that get on the air range from the obvious to the witty - even BlackHumor will occasionally make its way there if it is particularly clever.

Added DiffLines:

* ''MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' had the audience at New York's City Center Theater sing along with the Bruces Philosophers' Song. When the audience's first attempt came half-hearted, the Bruces threatened "Anyone not singing will have a bottle of Foster's lobbed at their heads!" The words were presented and the audience joined in full volume.

* Many [[GameShow game]] and {{reality show}}s use this in various ways.

* ''Film/TheOogielovesInTheBigBalloonAdventure'' is a children's film that encourages the viewers to dance and sing at the screenings. This likely contributed to its status as a spectacular BoxOfficeBomb, as no sane theater owner would put up with hordes of kids running and dancing about the building for long.

Not to mention that you would be hard-pressed to find parents willing to take their kids to a movie that required them to yell, dance and sing in a setting that is supposed to be time for them to sit and be quiet.
