* In [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=srolPWbcg44 this McDonald's commercial]], the Hamburglar paints a tunnel on the wall to get cheeseburgers from Ronald [=McDonald=], who is riding a scooter. Ronald goes through the tunnel, but when the Hamburglar tries to chase after him, he slams into the wall. Feeling bad for the Hamburglar, Ronald gives him one cheeseburger from inside the tunnel.

* ''Series/{{Farscape}}'', a (relatively) serious live-action show, spends an episode inside the subconscious of the main character John Crichton, which is apparently highly influenced by old WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes cartoons. Crichton and an animated version of the angry [[ProudWarriorRaceGuy alien warrior D'Argo]] engage in a series of Coyote-and-Road Runner–style chases, all of which center on D'Argo painting wormholes onto the wall, which act as this type of tunnel.

* Dick Dastardly does it in one ''WackyRaces'' story. After the inevitable 'intended-victim-goes-through-tunnel-and-he-crashes-against-wall', [[ItRunsOnNonsensoleum he declares its a case of]] YourMindMakesItReal, and tries to go through, telling Muttley to just keeping thinking that the painted tunnel is real. [[WrongGenreSavvy It still don't work.]]

* Variation in an early ''SonicTheComic'' strip, where Robotnik paints a tunnel on the wall in the hope Sonic will run into it and knock himself out. Sonic proceeds to run into the tunnel. A confused Robotnik attempts to follow and, of course, knocks himself out against the wall.

* A commercial for Energizer batteries features who else but Wile E. Coyote himself paint a tunnel on the wall to try to catch the Energizer Bunny. Just like the Road Runner in the cartoons, the bunny goes through the tunnel, but when Wile E. tries to chase after him, he slams into the wall.

Added DiffLines:

* Spoofed in an episode of ''{{WesternAnimation/Turbo}} FAST'', where Hardcase draws a road on a trampoline hoping to cause the snails to bounce off over a cliff. When they seem to go through it, he tries it himself and bounces off over a cliff. Pan to the snails who simply went around the painting instead of through.
-->'''Smoove Move''': Did he really think we can't tell a road from a painting?

* In a couple of his movies (''ThePlayhouse'', ''SteamboatBillJr.'') Creator/BusterKeaton uses an old vaudeville gag in which a comedian performing against a backdrop painted to look like a body of water dives into it -- he actually jumps through a horizontal slit in the canvas.

* Spoofed in a ''WesternAnimation/TomAndJerryKids'' short with a car race, where the villain [=McWolf=] takes advantage of ArtisticExpression, by having {{Droopy}} drive into a sign and shoving said sign off a cliff (the wolf earlier crashed into a painted tunnel).

* A commercial currently (2010) playing in the United States for the Sour Patch Kids candy uses this as part of the "first they are sour and then they are sweet" campaign.
* A Coors Light commercial also playing as of 2010 has an artist painting a tunnel onto a wall, then adding a little bit of light for an oncoming train...which turns into the "Silver Bullet", [[MundaneMadeAwesome the ice-cold Coors Light train that automatically lowers the temperature of the air surrounding it to the ''perfect'' temperature for enjoying Coors Light]].
