* In the Music/FleetwoodMac video for the song "Tusk", bassist John McVie was in Tahiti and unable to come to the filming at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.

* Creator/MichaelJackson refused to travel to England for filming of the Jackson's video for "Torture"; so they borrowed Michael's waxwork from Madame Tussaud's museum and used it as a stand-in -- both for the video, and for several jokes at the missing Jackson's expense.

* Police in Australia used a cardboard cut-out of a police car partly hidden in the bushes by a highway to fool drivers into slowing down.

* A CIA technique for dodging a tail involves this technique. A car with two agents turns a corner, then before the car following appears, the passenger jumps out and mingles with the pedestrians, while the driver pulls a lever, activating a pop-up cardboard cutout, making it look like there's still two people in the car. A CIA employee planning to defect used the same technique to dodge FBI surveillance, using a sex shop dummy.
