Added DiffLines:

* The opening of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'' combines this with a solid EstablishingCharacterMoment. Barret asks Cloud, who has just joined Barret's group, if he's familiar with Mako reactors, and - despite the fact that Cloud tells him that he is - starts lecturing him about what Mako reactors are. Cloud's understandably annoyed reaction causes Barret to get pissed off with him, and they continue bickering for the first couple of hours of the game.

* Done rather creatively in ''Film/TheBigShort''. Rather than fill the viewers in on complex financial issues through traditional exposition, the film BreaksTheFourthWall to introduce celebrities to explain them. We get Margot Robbie explaining mortgage bonds in a bubblebath, Anthony Bourdain using unsold fish to illustrate how banks handle unsold mortgages, and Richard Thaler and Selena Gomez at a blackjack table illustrating how synthetic [=CDOs=] work.
