* The end of "[[http://youtu.be/Mf5YSrfj2Ns Eddie Vedder]]" by Local H does this, in contrast to the beginning of the video which starts with the band onstage and working their way toward backstage, making it a mild MindScrew.

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 On A Soundstage All Along. 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.

* The Jean-Paul Goude video for "I've Seen That Face Before" by Grace Jones (a cover of instrumental "Libertango" by Astor Piazzola) ends with revealing that the whole song was performed on a roof of a tower block.

* Another BritCom example is ''The Worker'' starring Charlie Drake. The show ran for four series, and not one but ''two'' series finales ended with the Worker discovering that he was really a comedian called Charlie Drake who was making a SitCom.

* The video to E-type's "Angels Crying" is a cliché [[SlasherMovie slasher movie]] with the lead male singer playing the AxCrazy to moderately disturbing effect. (Pop lyrics go from asinine to genuinely creepy fast when they're presented as the words of a lunatic.) At the end the camera pulls back to reveal a set, actors come out to congratulate each other, props are moved around, cue a hand grasping a piece of scenery.
