* Music/WeirdAlYankovic's "Foil" starts off as one of his fairly standard "food parody" songs until he says "Oh, by the way, I cracked the code" at which point it turns into a song about a ConspiracyTheorist.

* BigSpot.com has a series of commercials that start out looking like commercials for special as-seen-on-TV ads, but they get interrupted halfway through with someone saying how terrible that ad was, then they advertise the website.

* ''Film/TheFugitive''
** After Kimble's dive off the dam, Kimble is seen walking down a road at night. A woman stops and offers to give him a ride. Kimble climbs in and the car drives off. We then cut to the U.S. Marshal's office in Downtown Chicago where Cosmo Renfro tells Gerard, "Yes! All right, Sammy, we've got him - shacked up with some babe over in Whiting", and Deputy Erin Poole replies, "She left work tonight and took him home." We are led to think that Gerard and his men have received a tip about Kimble's whereabouts and they're on their way to grab him. The next morning, they storm the house, and it's revealed that the tip was actually about [[WhatHappenedToTheMouse Copeland]], the other fugitive who survived the train wreck alongside Kimble. He is shot by Gerard after he tries to take Newman hostage. The "babe" that Cosmo was referring to was the girlfriend hiding Copeland.
** An extremely quick one when Kimble first returns to Chicago; the first car he sees is a police car which startles him with its lights and siren, but it has nothing to do with Richard.
** Later, Kimble is having another dream about his wife when he wakes up, hearing cars screeching to a stop outside. He looks out and sees a Chicago Police Department tactical assault team advancing on the house. He panics, thinking that the police have come for him. He follows the noises of the officers as they search the house. He breathes a sigh of relief as he realizes that the police are actually there to arrest a pair of drug dealers who live upstairs. Unfortunately, one of the dealers, once in custody, rats on Kimble upon recognizing his picture on a Wanted poster.
** [[spoiler:Dr. Alec Lentz]] is set up to be the BigBad of the movie and orchestrator of Kimble's downfall. However, we learn halfway through the film that [[spoiler:Lentz was [[BusCrash killed in a car crash]]]] soon after Kimble's incarceration, and that the real villain was [[spoiler:Dr. Charles Nichols]].

* [=GilvaSunner=] is a famous Website/YouTube personality, known for uploading entire soundtracks of games for listening pleasure. In early 2016, an account with the name Music/GiIvaSunner (note that the third letter is not an L but an I) started making videos that would start off sounding like what they promised, before veering off into a mostly-unexpected direction. At least one or more of the people who run the channel seems to be aware of WebVideo/{{Vinesauce}} memes, given that many the posts have a remix of the theme from ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones''' NES game (a reference to the "Grand Dad" moment from one of Joel's bootleg streams), and then there's the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YN1t1HplhI0 infamous edit of the Honeyhive Galaxy theme]] from a certain other stream.

* This is the bread-and-butter of Music/GiIvaSunner: Presenting uploads as "high quality rips" of video game tracks, only for these tracks to turn out to be mashups, remixes, or "InTheStyleOf" parodies upon listening.

* In one episode of ''Machinima/RedVsBlue'', [[spoiler: Tex]] has been continually [[GroinAttack hitting Grif in the nuts]] throughout the episode. Then Simmons finally manages to shoot a heat-seeking rocket launcher at the tormentor. After a [[CrowningMomentOfAwesome really cool]] set of acrobatics with a set of portals, [[spoiler: Tex]] (with the rocket still in hot pursuit) [[MegatonPunch punches her way]] through Sarge, Tucker, and Simmons, and slides under Grif. Grif cringes, seeing the rocket coming right for him... and it flies harmlessly under his legs. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Which instead]] [[StuffBlowingUp blows up the pile of rockets right behind him.]]

* The host of [[{{WWE}} Wrestlemania 27]] was a subject of great contention up until the night it was revealed. WWE itself got in on this that night by initially teasing with a shot of a limo pulling up, and a close-up of a pair of feminine feet in high heels. Minutes later, with the sudden playing of the theme music of long-inactive wrestler The Rock, the host was finally announced to be Wrestling/DwayneJohnson himself, [[AndThereWasMuchRejoicing to the raucous cheers of the crowd.]] Dwayne even includes a little bait-and-switch in his following speech.
