* In ''Film/TheDarkKnightRises'', Bane locks an injured Bruce Wayne in a cell with a television screen showing a news program on Bane's reign of terror on Gotham City.


Added DiffLines:

* Movie Theatres are another downplayed example. Since it's not known beforehand when a movie will actually start, moviegoers often have to sit through half an hour of trailers for other movies, ads, and public service announcements before seeing the movie they've paid to see. Think you can just show up late to compensate? You might have to struggle to find a seat in the dark - and if you're watching a movie on the one day that the theatre decided to skip the previews and just show the movie, you've just missed the first part of the movie. And that's before we consider the overpriced refreshments...
* Mobile versions of websites often have an ad that plays before the user can view the site that the user can't exit (or has a minimum wait period before this option is available).

* In ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'', Doofenshmirtz ambushes a TV executive at a FanConvention and forces him to listen to his pitch for an action series starring characters based on [[HerCodeNameWasMarySue Perry the Platypus and himself]]. Funnily enough, the executive actually likes the idea, but when he politely suggests that [[ExecutiveMeddling Perry's character have a love interest]], Doof [[WriterRevolt winds up feeling insulted and infuriated and storms off]].

* ''Fanfic/TheLegendOfTotalDramaIsland'' has a downplayed example using the business definition (see "Real Life" below). The first-day orientation includes a stop at the Tuck Shoppe, essentially an on-site convenience store. Chris informs the contestants that the Tuck Shoppe can provide various things to make their lives a little easier, but warns that they'll have to pay captive audience prices for those luxuries. In other words, everything will be expensive.
