* Subverted in an episode of ''EdEddNEddy'' where the Eds are spying on the cul-da-sac kids. In one scene, Eddy is seen leaning against a street pole holding a newspaper over his face as some neighbor kids walk by. Once they pass, the "newspaper Eddy" turns out to be a cardboard cut-out that falls over as the real Eddy [[BehindAStick pops out from behind the street pole with a pair of binoculars.]]

* Early in ''VideoGame/Persona5'', [[StudentCouncilPresident Makoto]] can be seen tailing the PlayerCharacter while keeping her nose buried in a huge manga magazine she clearly isn't reading.
