* At one point in ''[[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiBowsersInsideStory Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story]]'', you have to drill into a specific area inside Bowser's body to fix his back. After doing so, several [=NPCs=] sit down to have a tea break before the game tells you, in no uncertain terms, to put down the DS and go do something else for a while. It's not kidding - if you ''do'' decide to wait it out, it'll take almost five minutes before you can regain control. Unless, of course, [[spoiler: you talked to that one NPC that gave you the code that literally makes time speed up to the exact moment you regain control when you input it. Then it's about five seconds, max.]]

* ''VideoGame/PennAndTellersSmokeAndMirrors'' includes a game called "Desert Bus" where you drive a bus from Tucson, Arizona, to Las Vegas, Nevada, at forty-five miles an hour. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin It's exactly as fun as you imagine]]. You also have to pay attention and actually keep holding the controls down correctly or the bus will veer off the road. [[spoiler:Sometimes, ''a bug will splatter on the windshield.'' And eventually, ''night will fall.'' ''And then the sun will rise!'' When you finally arrive, it's time to take the return trip. And if you veer off the road? The bus stalls and is towed back to Tucson [[spoiler:''in real time'']]!

* In ''VideoGame/{{Uru}}: Path of the Shell'', three puzzles are solved by ''waiting at one point for several minutes''.
** The reason for this is those puzzles were designed for the MMORPG which was dropped for [[ExecutiveMeddling various reasons]]. Cyan [[TheResolutionWillNotBeTelevised finished off the ages they'd been working on and packaged them as]] ''Path of the Shell'', but their substitute for puzzles that needed multiple people was to put in ridiculous 15 minute pauses. When the online version was revived (briefly) we got to see how the puzzles were originally intended.

* ''VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire'' and its remakes have an optional [[GuideDangIt sidequest]] puzzle like this (it's changed in Emerald). [[note]]To elaborate, it's the puzzle that opens Regice's cave; you click on the Braille puzzle and then wait two full minutes before it opens.[[/note]]

* ''LetsMakeADeal'': Quickie deals were shown following the closing credits, always with traders who had been picked over during the regular game. A typical example: "I'll give up $25 for every dime you find in your purse!" The end credits would end with the host continuing to make "deals."

** The Replacements [[WriterRevolt hated making music videos]] and as a result a lot of their videos are like this. The video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aUmwzgFXfug Left of the Dial]]" is pretty much identical to the video for "Bastards of Young", expect with a purple tint and a handful of differences that make it obvious it isn't the same footage (chief among them is that the speaker lives). The video for "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y5e6A_EozH0 Hold My Life]]" is ''also'' identical to the other two, but in full color.

to:

* ''Film/{{Klute}}''ConcertFilm ''Film/TheLastWaltz'': Almost all of Creator/MuddyWaters' performance of "Mannish Boy" is shown as a single unbroken take from a camera at stage right. The reason for this was that Waters had bounded on stage during what was supposed to be a scheduled camera break to change film. The only one who had film ready to shoot was Oscar-winner Laszlo Kovacs at stage right, who hadn't heard the message to change film because he had his headset off.

* Before leaving the moon on Apollos 15, 16, and 17, the astronauts would drive their lunar rover a short distance away and abandoned them facing the lunar module, so as to capture footage of the take off. Since after that point there was no one there to switch it off, the camera would continue filming until it ran out of power.

* After a standoff at the Malheur Wildlife Refuge in Oregon, a number of militiamen heading to a meeting with their supporters were arrested en route, along with several of their supporters at their destination. One of their supporters, Pete Santilli, ran a YouTube livestream, and got arrested and dropped his camera, which continued to stream an image of the wall of his motel room for hours afterwards.
