->''One of the things Ford Prefect had always found hardest to understand about humans was their habit of continually stating and repeating the very very obvious, as in "It's a nice day", or "You're very tall", [[BreadEggsMilkSquick or "Oh dear you seem to have fallen down a thirty-foot well, are you alright?"'']]

* The title character of ''VideoGame/AlanWake'' tends to do this. In the beginning, he tells us that it was dark as he drove in his dream while doing so. He hits a man on the road, talks about it...then while looking at the lighthouse, [[StopHelpingMe tells the audience that he sees one in the distance.]]

Added DiffLines:

** But no radio drama ever handled it better than Creator/OrsonWelles did with his famous ''Radio/TheWarOfTheWorlds'' broadcast. Welles' decision to stage the show as a PhonyNewscast (for the first two acts, anyway; Act III is a reading from a diary) justified this trope InUniverse. Instead of characters narrating what they're seeing for an audience, radio broadcasters are describing what they're seeing as they would naturally.

* All the time in older Archie ComicBook/SonicTheHedgehog comics. The writers and layout artists apparently suffered from the unfortunate delusion that every panel had to have dialog in it; they don't really ''lose'' this particular delusion, but at least they learn to make the dialog semi-meaningful instead of this trope.

** This is a constant trope on the whole series especially when supporting characters watch a battle to death between the main fighter and the ArcVillain.

* ''[Film/ReturnOfTheJedi Star Wars: Return of the Jedi]]'' spends a few good minutes setting up the Emperor's plan, complete with the delightful reactions of the pilots as they stumble right into it... and then Admiral Akbar declares, "[[MemeticMutation It's a trap!]]"

** When the title family [[Recap/TheSimpsonsS6E4ItchyAndScratchyLand visited Itchy & Scratchy]] Land and were attacked by murderous robots, Lisa pointed out to Homer that the camera flash scrambled the robots' circuits immediately after said event. Homer reacted: "What are you, the narrator?"
