* A non-villain example in ''Film/TheGreatRace'' when The Great Leslie and Hezekiah meet Crown Prince Hoepnick. The prince makes several jokes, each time gesturing for the crowd to laugh, which they dutifully do. At one point Hezekiah keeps laughing after every one else stops, until The Great Leslie [[BeQuietNudge elbows him in the ribs]]. Watch it [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1z81NmslTo4 here, starting at 0:20]].

They soon start laughing together in a very awkward manner. The problem is, they're not quite sure when to stop, and no one wants to be the first to stop laughing... great awkwardness ensues. * A non-{{villain}} example in ''TheGreatRace'' when The Great Leslie and Hezekiah meet Crown Prince Hoepnick.

* In the {{DVD Commentary}}, Ian Hislop suggests that part of the reason for Piers Morgan's notoriously awful appearance on ''HaveIGotNewsForYou'' was that as Editor of the Mirror he'd been able to enforce this trope, and consequently believed himself to be very funny. Notably, [[EpicFail he actually tries to bully the audience into this]], but since they're not his Mooks it obviously doesn't work.

* Non-villainous example in an episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'', Homer is forced to borrow money from Patty and Selma. They agree to help him out on the condition that he become their slave until he repays the debt. They then begin smirking and laughing, and Homer chuckles a little with them at first. Eventually he starts to genuinely laugh more so than those two, who then get a little annoyed at him.
