** In "[[Recap/SupernaturalS02E22AllHellBreaksLoosePartTwo All Hell Breaks Loose, Part Two]]" (S02, Ep22), this is PlayedStraight with Dean speeding to the crossroad and digging with his hands in the dirt of the crossroad to summon a demon while a driving guitar riff plays. Dean then stands up, the music stops, and there is only the sound of crickets chirping as Dean waits for the crossroad demon to appear.

** In "Stuck in the Middle with You", Crowley (not quite the King of Hell at this point) introduces himself to Ramiel like his name should mean something. Ramiel responds with silence broken only by the sound of a cuckoo clock.

* ''WesternAnimation/BrandyAndMrWhiskers'' parodies it in an episode: Sandy and Mr Frisky are greeted enthusiastically at the waterfall, while no one responds to the main duo except a cricket chirping, which [[LeftTheBackgroundMusicOn Whiskers noted seems to like them]]. When they try their entrance again, they get complete silence; when Brandy asks how could it be worse than before, Whiskers says he stepped on the cricket.
