->We had a problem, we couldn't get a permit in New York City to open a shoe store on short notice merely to sell 500 pairs of shoes over a couple of days. But we could get a ''film permit'' quickly, so we did, then put a fake camera on a tripod outside and a sign indicating we were shooting locations for our film ''The Making of a Shoe Store''. We sold all the shoes by the end of the day.

* There was a [[TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks Silver Age]] issue of ''Franchise/{{Superman}}'' built on this theme. Apparently, Superboy had foiled a robbery using this scheme, but the bank robbers had used real film and caught Superboy changing from his secret identity! When the criminals get out of jail years later, all they have to do is get the film and sell it to the highest bidder! Only a clever ruse can keep Superman's secret safe from the criminals of the world and girl reporter LoisLane!

* In the Russian TV series ''AgentstvoNLS'', one of the main characters is suddenly cast as a main hero in an action movie. While shooting the bank robbery scene in an actual bank, the director and some of the crew pull out real guns and begin the real robbery. The police, of course, was warned about the "shooting" so they make no effort to prevent it. The creators have gone as far as to invite a real crime boss as a consultant, with an intention to frame him for the robbery.
