One famous example of this trope is the "Rake Scene" from ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Cape Feare", where Sideshow Bob kept stepping on rakes ''ad nauseam'' until the pointlessness of the scene became the gag and it became funny again. (The production team has confessed that the gag was added because the episode ran short.)

However, some feel that, once the audience recognizes the trope again, the gag ''permanently'' loses its entertainment value and the viewer is left waiting for it to end and some other humor to begin ("Oh, it's another one of ''these''.). Others, though, find it a brilliant subversion of audience expectations on the lines of Creator/AndyKaufman reading the entire text of ''Literature/TheGreatGatsby'' to an audience expecting a comedy routine.

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney'' has Damon Gant bursting out into manic laughter when you [[spoiler: out him as trying to frame Ema Skye for murder.]]
** Even better is Gant's stare, which he does quite often. It lasts for so long, one would think their game had frozen if it wasn't for his occasional blinking.

** Those word replacement videos at times. Quite possibly the biggest offender is ''WesternAnimation/TheNutshack'' theme [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jVV34E061A4 with every "Nutshack" being replaced with]] the ''WesternAnimation/BeeMovie'' script - it's '''over twice as long''' as that Schemer video.
