* Happens in ''Film/{{Airplane}}'' where the main character stares straight at the camera to get flashbacks to [[AnachronismStew The War]], in some cases the viewer doesn't get to see the flashback and only the sound track of gun fire and crashing planes.

* Invoked hilariously by ''Series/MysteryScienceTheater3000'' for a fifties short about how to know when you're ready to get married. At one point, while the [[TheObiWan "marriage counselor over at the church"]] is talking, the female half of the couple he's advising stares into space for several seconds, apparently not listening. Mike and the robots fill the seconds with gunshot noises and an imitation of an officer bellowing, "Marines, we are leaving!", and when the woman shakes herself back into focus, Mike has her say, "Sorry, back in Danang there for a minute."
