* The 2011 Thanksgiving special involved Kevin Swanson returning home and admitting he went [=AWOL=] from the army. Peter refers to him as a "regular Benedict Arnold Drummond". Cut to the producers hopelessly confused and looking for a tape of [[DiffrentStrokes Gary Coleman]] in a Napoleon hat. After giving up, they just put in one of the [[TheWizardOfOz Cowardly Lion]] as LindsayLohan's OB/GYN.

* ''WebVideo/DragonBallZAbridged'' uses this on occasion. In ''History of Trunks Abridged'', Trunks asks Gohan what his father was like, and we cut away to Vegeta beating a young Gohan senseless.
-->''' Vegeta:''' So what?! You think having a dad as a Super Saiyan makes you better than me?!\\
'''Kid Gohan:''' No!\\
'''Vegeta:''' ''(continues punching Gohan)'' Wrong answer!\\
''(Back in the [[TimeTravelTenseTrouble present/future]])\\
'''Future Gohan:''' ...He had a lot to prove.

*A few Youtubers (vloggers as well as Let's Players) enjoy doing this as they mention something, then cut to a video in an entirely different setting where they demonstrate in an outragous way what they said, only to switch back to the original video with the camera on their straight or severly disturbed face.

* Used and explicitly [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]] in one episode of ''CromartieHighSchool'', which suddenly cuts to a sequence titled [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin "Let's Strum A Guitar In The Mountains!"]], at the end of which the man playing the guitar throws the instrument up in the air, screaming ''"Oh my god, this is a non-sequitur!"''

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' plays with this trope a bit, using it as a method of {{Foreshadowing}} or to flesh out its plot and characters instead of just as a way to get easy laughs. In addition, it usually ends with a lampshade by one of the main characters.

* ''WesternAnimation/GravityFalls'' plays with this trope a bit, using but unlike other shows, this show uses it as a method of {{Foreshadowing}} or to flesh out its plot and characters instead of just as a way to get easy laughs.[[note]]Especially with one TV cutaway gag where there was an episode where the characters have watched a TV show, which the title character of said show has a twin brother[[/note]]. In addition, it usually ends with a lampshade by one of the main characters.

* Episode 16 of ''{{Slayers}}'' had Lina, Gourry, and Amelia travelling with a theater company. The director decided to cast them in an upcoming play, with Amelia as the hero. In one scene where she reads a line from the script (in her usual LargeHam / LoveFreak way), the background shifts to make it look like she is a voice actress in a recording studio. Then she asks "how was it?" -- cut to Gourry behind the recording desk, who says "Sorry, you were blowing into the mic." The background then shifts back to normal, and Amelia responds "I was ''what''?!"
