When a character is treating a certain scene as pure entertainment, they will often be shown eating popcorn or other stereotypical movie-theater food. [[{{Hammerspace}} Where they get it from is a mystery]]. Usually the scene will be something like a fight or a private conversation between lovers, that generally isn't intended for anyone's amusement (at least not in-universe). Almost inevitably, the character will be too fixated on the entertainment to actually look at what he's eating.

This is always used for humor; it often indicates that the character in question is [[{{Jerkass}} callous]] enough that they are deriving amusement from someone's anguish or anger rather than offering to help. It may also indicate that the character in question has no stake in the outcome. Alternatively, perhaps he ''does'' have a stake in the outcome, and is confident that somebody he doesn't like is about to receive a well-deserved comeuppance. Sometimes the character becomes an AudienceSurrogate, giving an in-universe voice to the audience's feelings towards the scene.

Compare and contrast LongSpeechTeaTime (where the audience has a SpotOfTea or something because they're bored) and TheSnackIsMoreInteresting (where someone ''is'' involved, but acts strangely unconcerned). ComeToGawk and BileFascination are often contributing elements. For more catastrophic occurrences, there is WhileRomeBurns. If the situation is in ''really'' bad taste, the spectator is probably a NightmareFetishist.

* ''Manga/BloodBlockadeBattle'': During one crisis where Femt is discussing existential philosophy with King Void while an airship crashes into various skyscrapers, Aligura is munching on a tub of popcorn. Considering Femt and Aligura are Blockade's equivalent of The Joker and Harlequinn, this seems appropriate.
