* Music/TheFlamingLips have a song on the album ''Hit To Death in the Future Head'', called simply "Bonus Track", that is the same annoying sound over and over again for ''thirty minutes''.

* The scene of the creation of Rocky in ''TheRockyHorrorPictureShow''. In true surreal Rocky fashion, several casts now turn down the sound and do something else entirely during the scene nowadays.

* There were ''loooong'' periods in ''TransformersArmada'' where nothing happened whatsoever. There were also shorter pauses in conversation where it really didn't make sense. Trust me, LullDestruction would be an improvement. It's far from DBZ class, though.

* The Pixies' video for "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHhox4_SeHQ Velouria]]" is a single shot of the band running a short distance across a rock quarry in slow motion for about four minutes. Without the slow-motion effect, the video would be [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=msP48-EfM-Y&feature=related 23 seconds long]], if not even shorter. Reportedly this is because the band really wanted to perform on ''TopOfThePops'' while the song was in the UK Top 40, but the show required all acts performing on the show to have a music video for their current single, so they threw something together at the last minute. It was all in vain because the band never did get to play on ''Top of the Pops''.

Sometimes a single shot goes on for a very, very long time.

It can also serve as a thematic device: for example, a director might illustrate the lonely and mundane life of a solo astronaut by showing him going about his daily routine, never speaking a word because there's nobody to talk to.

In the video, Gravel stares at the camera for several minutes and then walks away after tossing a rock into a lake. A second video shows Gravel stoking a campfire and then the camera focuses on the fire for several minutes.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKSa6BgoRCY&feature=related The elevator ride with Rei and Asuka]]. The Directors Cut version at least mixes it a little bit up.

The same shot is reused in ''[[Anime/RebuildOfEvangelion Evangelion: 2.0]]'', but for a much shorter amount of time (making its inclusion a bit of a joke for fans).

* The video for the NewOrder song "Round And Round" is merely a series of black and white shots of the heads and shoulders of various women, with random colored pictures spliced in. However, an alternate version exists, where the only shot is one woman. For the entirety of the music video.

* The soon to be released experimental film ''Ambiance'' takes this to [[UpToEleven its logical apothiosis]]. The film is ''30 days'' (yes, '''days''') long, and was supposedly done in one take. Heck, even the trailer recently released is ''7 hours long'' and is nothing but the two actors in the entire film doing cryptic stuff as the camera stays in one spot.
