* There is an in-universe example that is PlayedForLaughs (albeit with some BlackComedy) in the 1967 sex comedy ''AGuideForTheMarriedMan''. A playboy spends most of the movie instructing his friend on how to commit a foolproof adultery, and his examples of both successful and unsuccessful adulteries are acted out throughout the film. One features a husband (actor Terry-Thomas) foolishly using his own bedroom for a tryst with a ditzy blonde (Creator/JayneMansfield) while his wife is away. The next morning the girl finds that she has misplaced her bra, alarming the husband; no matter how thoroughly they search, neither of them could find it. The scene then shifts back to present day, with the main character (Creator/WalterMatthau) asking his playboy friend if he can see what became of this man - and at that moment an impossibly ancient man enters the building. The playboy explains that this is the husband from the story he's just told, and that [[YoungerThanTheyLook despite appearances he's still young]] - but since the bra was never found by ''anyone'', the husband lived in constant fear that his wife would eventually find the bra, realize it wasn't hers, and fly into a rage. The extreme worrying turned him old before his time.

(Of course, [[WildMassGuessing it's entirely possible that]] the girl never put on a bra and then forgot that she hadn't, which just makes the entire scenario both funnier and darker.)

[[folder: Theater]] * This is the undercurrent running through "Gethsemane (I Only Want to Say)" in ''JesusChristSuperstar''. It's not the torture and death that awaits him that disturbs Jesus the most; it's the uncertainty of what will happen ''after'' his death, which is guaranteed by [[{{God}} his Father's]] silence on the matter. Definitely an unspoken acknowledgment of CessationOfExistence, not only for Jesus but, by extension, the entire human race. -->'''Jesus:''' But if I die --> See the saga through and do the things you ask of me --> Let them hate me, hit me, hurt me --> Nail me to their tree --> I'd want to know, I'd want to know, my God... --> I'd want to see, I'd want to see, my God... --> Why I should die. --> Would I be more noticed than I ever was before? --> Would the things I've said and done matter anymore? --> I'd have to know, I'd have to know, my Lord... --> I'd have to see, I'd have to see, my Lord... --> ''If I die, what will be my reward?''

* The Music/{{Vocaloid}} song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itgdEqiJKlI "Pilom-san"/"Mr. Pilom"]]. The only lyrics of the song are "Pilom-san!" with the occasional droning "aaaaaaah". The accompanying video consists solely of "Pilom-san", a stick figure that appears to have crawled from the deepest depths of the UncannyValley, standing there, staring off into space and occasionally acknowledging the lyrics, [[spoiler:briefly looking at YOU]] and smiling the [[TheUnsmile single most horrifying smile imaginable]]. The song and PV never once explain who or ''what'' Pilom-san is. He just seems to be...''there''.
