* Played in "Through Glass" by StoneSour. Everything in the video (except the band members, but including a pool and a mansion) turns out to be a cardboard cutout, ending with the band on a soundstage.

* The long-form Creator/DavidBowie video ''Jazzin' for Blue Jean'' has a PlayedForLaughs example (though on a street rather than a soundstage): Bowie suddenly breaks his uncool nice guy character to object to the story's ending, in which [[spoiler: that character doesn't get the girl, as the other character he's playing does]]; the shot changes to reveal the crew filming the scene as he argues with the director over the issue.

** There was a story that the clip's director did not tell the crew he was planning to do this. He simply left the camera running, and then edited all the footage himself. The reason the stars seem so natural during the "soundstage" scenes is that those are their real reactions.

If the song you're making a video for ends with a dramatic fade of the instruments and you want a suitably dramatic ending then you could try the good old tactic of having you lead singer bow their head while the lights dim and the camera pulls back to reveal - ah ha! - that the band was OnASoundstageAllAlong. Thus you reveal the artificiality of the music video and undermine the video's story with an unsettling note of self-awareness. Or something. Anyway, it looks totally awesome.
