* Japan in particular has one specifically for Earthquakes, where a [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=24KfBwkMw_M Chime is played, with a Warning message about the incoming earthquake played over it and the original audio, and a blue banner overtakes part of the screen]]. Given the number of earthquakes hitting the area, it's rather justified.

* Done in a horrifying manner in ''InfiniteCrisis''. After Darkseid finally obtains the Anti-Life Equation--a mathematical proof of the futility of living and hope--he takes over ''every single form'' of broadcasting on the entire planet, including the Internet, television, radio, and cell phones, to spread its power. Anyone who hears, sees, or is generally near the Equation, including superhumans, are immediately brainwashed by it, becoming Darkseid's mindless, hopeless slaves. How many is "anyone?" ''Three billion.''
