** Some read-alongs used variations on the first two intros, but especially the second intro (e.g., Roger Rabbit[[note]]Some of them were narrated in first person by a character from whatever story was being adapted.[[/note]] calling it "the story, the yarn, the tale of ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''"), but these are the most common.

* The read-slong book and record sets by Disneyland Records do this at the beginning of each of their books.[[note]]And so do ones by other companies as well, but if we listed each one, we'd be here all day.[[/note]] This is the original intro:
--> "This is a Disneyland original Little Long Playing Record, and I am your story reader. I am going to begin to read the story of [insert name of story here]. You can read along with me in your book. You will know it's time to turn the page, when [[Disney/PeterPan Tinker Bell]] rings her little bells like this. (''sound of "chimes ring" as described in the second version of the intro''[[note]]In some cases either way, a unique page turning sound was used, but most had the chimes ring.[[/note]]) Let's begin now."
** For releases in the mid-late 1970s onward, this intro is used:
--> "This is the story of [name of story]. You can read along with me in your book. You will know it is time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this. (''sound of chimes ring'')[[note]]In the Disney/PeterAndTheWolf read-along, this part is skipped.[[/note]] Let's begin now."
** For adaptations of the various Franchise/{{Peanuts}} specials[[note]]Which have no narrator, and are instead done in the style of the Peanuts comic strips.[[/note]], a special intro is used:
--> "Hi. I'm Charlie Brown. You can read along in your book as you listen to the story. You will know it is time to turn the page when you hear the chimes ring like this. (''sound of chimes ring'') "And now we present [adaptation of Peanuts special]."

* Any WebAnimation/YouTubePoop based on sentence mixing is sure to use this heavily, but with a little effort the end product can sound surprisingly [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jYtaIsPA5EE fluid]].

* The [[UsefulNotes/SuperNintendoEntertainmentSystem SNES]] game ''Mario's Early Years'' is generally considered terrible at least partly thanks to its horrendous use of this trope, as demonstrated [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhMGDXM7OV8 here]]. LetsPlay/ProtonJon and his friends [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6VJaLVR94YI&feature=g-u-u&context=G26734baFUAAAAAAAAAA immediately pick up on it]] in their LetsPlay.

* In ''VideoGame/LeisureSuitLarry'', purchasing a condom will lead to a series of questions regarding condom preferences, repeated back to Larry by the store clerk for all to hear. Using the payphone leads to a phone survey with a series of questions. When the payphone calls back, a message is given with the answers the player typed in. ''WebVideo/GameGrumps'' provides [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=drpghMlIiwo an]] [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dAQX0Y-ZdQA example]].

* Jen Taylor lends her voice to the {{Xbox}} Live version of ''Series/OneVersusAHundred'', announcing how many of the mob is left and the answers the One chose. Unlike Chris Cashman, who does live announcing, Taylor's lines are prerecorded. It's typically done well, but it sometimes slips into "The One has eliminated [Eight] opponents. It's now One versus [Sixty] [Three].".

* In the ''VideoGame/XMen'' arcade game, much of Magneto's dialogue (aside from the infamous "Welcome... to die!") seems to be spliced together even when it doesn't need to be, such as "[I] [KILL you!] [X-Chicken!]" and "You are [DEAD!]" Most of his {{catchphrase}}s can be summed up in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjuWKAMAlQU this video]].

* In the English dub of ''Franchise/{{Digimon}}'', the Digimon call their names and attacks using this technique. It becomes obvious in an episode of ''[[Anime/DigimonAdventure02 Adventure 02]]'', where Flamedramon uses his signature move, Fire Rocket, but instead of calling his attack, he says his name ("Flamedramon! The fire of courage!").

* Used in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros'', particularly in Classic Mode where the announcer tells the player who they'll be fighting next. However, the splicing is quite obvious in some places, as the LargeHam announcer has a single inflection for every character, and they don't always match up well ("[Luigi?] [versus] [Metaaall] [ZERO SUIT SAMUS]"). ''Melee'' has 2-on-2 Classic Mode matches where the announcer throws in a very emphatic "AAAND" that seems out of place ''everywhere'' ("[versus] [Jigglypuff!] [AAAND] [Mewtwo!]")

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/ThePeoplesCourt'' has this in spades:
-->"This is the plaintiff, (name of plaintiff, followed by a description of why he / she suing the defendant). He / she is suing for (x amount of money)."
-->"This is the defendant, (name of defendant, followed by a description of why the defendant feels he / she shouldn't have to pay the lawsuit). He / she is accused of (pun related to what the defendant is being accused of).[[note]]Some episodes have the defendant countersuing the plaintiff with an additional description of why the plaintiff should pay the countersuit.[[/note]]

* In ''WesternAnimation/WallE'', when the recording of Shelby Forthright gives instructions on how to return the ''Axiom'' to Earth, the ship's name appears to have been dubbed in, suggesting the message was made for other ships in the [=BnL=] fleet as well.

* HumongousEntertainment relied on this non-stop. The ''VideoGame/BackyardSports'' were easily the worst offenders ("From the 45...Pete...tees it up...Steve...back to receive...lands on the...24...collects it at the...32...finally brought down."). The older floppy disk versions of the DOS games relied on this much more due to the lack of space.
