* The holographic cover of Mickee Madden's ''Everlastin''' inverts this trope: it shows a man standing next to a painting of a woman in a field but it's the ''man'' and not the painting who changes, fading in and out on the cover to indicate that he's actually a ghost.

* In "The Man With Two Brains", Steve Martin asks his late wife (by talking to her portrait) for her approval to marry an incredibly hot new wife. The painting starts spinning while you hear her moaning "No. No. NO. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO". When it stops, Martin says "Anything. Any little sign at all." He really wants Turner. * In "One, Two, Three", Jimmy Cagney is throwing a wild bash for three Russian commissars in the Russian zone in Berlin. While the music is playing, his hot secretary/mistress is dancing on a table and people are stomping, a giant picture of Khrushchev slips out of its frame revealing the picture of Stalin it is covering.
