* In the Myth/NorseMythology tale of "The Death of Baldur", there is a part where the Æsir are gathered at the funeral pyre of the recently-killed Baldur, when a dwarf shows up. The dwarf, named Litr, casually strolls in when Thor notices him and [[BlackComedy punts him into the funeral pyre]]. The tale then resumes as normal and the dwarf is never mentioned again.

* In ''WebVideo/TheHeroOfTime'', there's Link's journey out of the Lost Woods. He gets briefly lost and takes a nap, only for a random guard to steal his sword while Link sleeps. Link wakes up before this can happen and ties the guard up, implying in their conversation that the guard is one of a few who swore to protect the forest and forces the guard to tell him how to get out of the woods. This scene, including the fact that Link left someone tied up in a dangerous forest, is completely forgotten after Link leaves. What makes it even odder is besides being a reference to the Lost Woods of ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime'', none of it is a reference to any ''Zelda'' canon, so it isn't even there for the sake of a ShoutOut.

* In TheKalevala, Vainamoinen and the others are burrowing into a mountain to find the Sampo, when they come across a bunch of snakes drinking beer. Vainamoinen is infuriated for some reason and curses all snakes so that they can never drink beer again. This is never mentioned again.

* GEICO commercials seem to be using this as a running gag as of "Did you know that...?" , [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yabAsZ4OSMw here]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wXTWujOWuAK are]] but two examples.

* These happen ''all'' the time in real life due to its general lack of a coherent plot.
* As mentioned above, Flash Mobs.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWdgAMYjYSs The Max Headroom Incident]]
** This is true for almost any signal intrusion or broadcast piracy incident. While some attempt to convey some sort of message, a good number are [[{{Troll}} intrusions for the sake of intruding]], such as the above-mentioned incident or simply designed to scare people.
** The second one also happened while an episode of Series/DoctorWho was being run. Just picture this: You're watching the show, and then suddenly, a guy wearing a Max Headroom mask just appears on the screen and does all these bizarre and offensive things. Then back to Doctor Who as if nothing happened. And you're left sitting in front of the TV thinking "What the Hell?"
* Dreams. And 99% of the time, not only do you not mention them ever again, but you forget that they even happen.
* Musical numbers and certain performances in film and live-action TV up until the late sixties. The plot would stop for a performance, then when the performance was over, the plot would go on as though nothing had ever happened. This was done to make it easy to cut a number for certain markets that might find it offensive. For example, black performers might be cut for certain Southern states.
* At a televised golf tournament, Tiger Woods went to tee off, surrounded by hundreds of spectators who were quiet per standard gold procedure. As soon as the thwack of the club was heard and Woods' ball was airborne, someone in the gallery shouted "MASHED POTATOES!" - the TV announcers were bewildered by it.
* In the 2013 National League Championship Series, before the start of Game 6, Cardinals pitcher Joe Kelly and Dodgers utility player Scott Van Slyke got into a 12-minute staring contest. Both men remained standing on the playing field outside their dugouts, not having moved from their positions where they stood at attention for the national anthem. This went on while the grounds crew was busy getting the field ready, and Joe Kelly's teammates were going through final warm ups on the field. The home plate umpire finally had to gesture for them to get back into their dugouts.
* [[Music/JohnLennon "I have something very important to tell you all. ]][[DeadpanSnarker I am Jesus Christ. I'm back again."]] Came up out of the blue while the Beatles were at lunch one day in 1968, and never brought up again.
* Superbowl halftime shows, especially with their recent extravagance, can be considered BLAMs since they interrupt the game out of nowhere before the game proceeds as usual.
