* ''Film/TheDarkTower2017''. Jake Chambers notices there's [[UncannyValley something odd about the people]] who've come to take him to a special clinic. He goes to pack his bag and then goes to the toilet, making sure to leave his bag outside so it doesn't look like he's trying this trope. Of course that makes it easier to climb out the window onto the roof. The villains however quickly realise what he's up to and go after him.
