* Christmas 2009 had a well publicized battle for the Christmas number one spot in the British music charts between ''The X-Factor'' winner's cover of MileyCyrus' "The Climb" and RageAgainstTheMachine's "Killing in the Name". Radio 1 milked it for all it was worth, including a ten second long pause before they announced the #2 song (and thus, the #1 song).
* Parodied one year at {{MTV}}'s Movie Awards, hosted by Lisa Kudrow, when a category was announced as Best Dramatic Pause. After airing the nominees, Kudrow opened the envelope, and then began a Dramatic Pause that lasted until the next commercial break.

* In ''VisualNovel/{{AIR}}'', the music gets cut off right before Misuzu's famous "goal"-moment. After that, the immensely melancholic vocal version of that tune kicks in, which makes the sadness of the scene [[TearJerker/AnimeAndManga hit really hard]].
