* 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.
