* ''WebVideo/BreakingTrail'': An unintentional example, but during ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4DPSC0P99iw Night of the Deadly Creatures]]'', during Coyote's explanation and handling of a blunthead snake, viewers could notice a somewhat blurry snake starting to coil up behind him without anyone else noticing. Only later after he's almost done do the cameramen (and a second later Coyote himself) notice the very upset and ''very dangerous'' [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bothrops_asper fer-de-lance]] snake already in position to bite him.

* Used to disturbing effect in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8syQeFtBKc this]] gun-violence PSA, uploaded by Sandy Hook Promise. The central plot of the video focuses on Evan, a teenage boy who communicates with a girl through messages scrawled on a table. When he's finally able to talk to her in-person at a yearbook signing [[spoiler:another kid enters the gym with a gun and starts shooting. Said kid could be seen in the background clearly planning out gun-violence throughout the video, which the PSA goes out of its way to point out.]] The point is to illustrate how the warning signs of someone planning a school shooting can be overlooked until it's too late.
