* Watching TV or film, which forces your viewpoint, are the main contributing factors when you see celebrities in RealLife and were ExpectingSomeoneTaller.
** If you, the fan, are taller than average in the first place, the effect is VERY notable.

* When making his experimental short film ''Film/EauxDArtifice'', Creator/KennethAnger wanted to make the fountains in the ornate garden look bigger. So, instead of casting a full-sized woman as his actress, he hired a little person.

* In ''Film/HotShotsPartDeux'', this is played for laughs with the helicopter flying in with Topper into the military base. It looks full size, even knocking over tents at it approaches, but as it comes in for a landing, it turns out to be a small remote-controlled helicopter, and a nearby officer yells for someone to pick it up before people start tripping over it.

* ''Series/CanadasWorstDriver'' used this to set up a gag in the first episode of Season 13. Andrew announced that in view of all the complaints about what the bad drivers ''do'' to cars on the show, they were going to do all the driver training with remote control cars instead. One of the [=RC=] cars on the table was actually the season's "hero car", parked at the far end of the runway to make it look the same size as the toys.

* {{Music/OK Go}} used this throughout the video for ''The Writing's on the Wall''. It started with the text "The Writing's on the Wall" appearing the middle of the screen not by overlay, but by painting the letters on objects in front of the band and on the wall behind them. There were a set of boxes, some of which were real, and some of which were just painted on the ground; a conglomeration of random objects that looks like Tim when viewed from above; and a picture of the band except for Damian painted on the wall and floor, with Damian standing in the empty space. It ended with another sign saying "The Writing's on the Wall" on the back wall, and the pillars in the warehouse, making it nearly undecipherable until the camera moves into the correct position.

* ''Webcomic/AwfulHospital'' has a living version of this: thanks to the uniquely subjective [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]] of the Perception Range, Bloodstain appears to the protagonist and the reader as a, well, bloodstain across any number of surfaces that [[http://www.bogleech.com/awfulhospital/011.html forms a humanoid outline]] from the viewer's perspective.

* The final scene of the so-called American version of ''Film/StrangersOnATrain'' has Barbara and Anne Morton waiting for Guy to call on the telephone. Creator/AlfredHitchcock wanted the phone in the foreground to dominate the shot, emphasizing the importance of the call, but the limited depth-of-field of contemporary motion picture lenses made it difficult to get both phone and women in focus. So Hitchcock had an oversized phone constructed and placed in the foreground. Anne reaches for the big phone, but actually answers a regular one.

* ''Series/TheGrahamNortonShow'' did a hilarious opening joke with Graham showing off his ride to actor and car enthusiast Matt [=LeBlanc=] and urging him to take it for a drive. Then Matt walks up to the "car", which is a little toy strategically positioned in front of the camera.

* ''Twenty Million Miles to Earth'', which had effects by Creator/RayHarryhausen. To set up a confrontation between the alien Ymir and an elephant Harryhausen needed establishing shots of a real elephant with a zookeeper. A small actor in a zookeepers' uniform was used to make the live-action elephant look bigger than it really was, so that it matched the scale of the animated elephant used in the fight scene.
