* The BeastieBoys's "Triple Trouble" opens with a TalkyBookend where the group insults Sasquatch, whom had held them captive for a year. Sasquatch, enraged, looks up their location on Google Maps and runs to their location. After the first two verses, there's a skit wherein Sasquatch attacks and reabducts the band.

* {{Weezer}}'s famous ConceptVideo for "Buddy Holly" presents the band as playing a gig in Arnold's from ''HappyDays'', opening with TalkyBookends from the show. At the end of the second chorus, the music stops and cuts to the show's "Stay tuned for more Happy Days" bumper, then almost immediately the music starts again. Fortunately, it's just long enough to make the viewer wonder if the video's over.
* FallOutBoy's "I Don't Care" features a still picture of a cat for a few seconds in the middle of the video. The clip falls silent while the picture is on the screen. The band purposefully had these put in due to censor additional ProductPlacement shots [[http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1595765/pete-wentz-fumes-over-product-placement-fall-out-boy-clip.jhtml they didn't approve of]].

* NewOrder's "Bizarre Love Triangle" interrupts the music for the following odd exchange: "I don't believe in reincarnation because I refuse to come back as a bug or as a rabbit!" "You know, you're a real 'up' person." In the middle of a video with ''no narrative''. This is what is known as a Non sequitur.

* P Diddy's "Bad Boy for Life" video features a short skit midway through in which neighbour Ben Stiller visits and unsucessfully tries to intimidate him. This despite Mr Diddy's first name being "[[FluffyTheTerrible Puff]]".
* Any hip-hop video with a cameo by John Witherspoon (Willy Jones from ''Friday'', Grandad from ''TheBoondocks'') is pretty much guaranteed to include one of these.

* The video for Music/{{Metallica}}'s song "One" contains several clips from a film version of ''Literature/JohnnyGotHisGun'' between the vocal sections. This is justified, since the song is based on the book. This also what is known as Sampling, and has been used frequently in audio-visual art.

"You know, you're a real 'up' person." In the middle of a video with ''no narrative''. This might be someone's idea of a "bizarre love triangle" (there's another woman in the scene), or it might just be the avant-garde director being [[TrueArtIsIncomprehensible weird for the hell of it]].
