* Creator/{{Sony}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=39pK2MV_sfs "#4ThePlayers" video]], in which a group of British teens grow up playing PlayStation consoles from 1995 to the present day. All the while, the artists whose posters adorn their walls and magazines change from Music/{{Blur}} to Music/{{Kasabian}} to Music/TinieTempah, the fashion goes from "[[Series/TheFreshPrinceOfBelAir Fresh Prince]]" to '00s "chav" fashion and beyond, and the London Eye, the Gherkin, and the Shard emerge on the UsefulNotes/{{London}} skyline outside their window.

* Creator/EdwardRutherfurd's novels, such as ''Sarum'', ''Russka'' and others, goes on like this, where every chapter goes to a new era and a new generation. Sometimes a single object or locale links the two sides of the transition, as when a medieval artisan proudly completes a painting that he's proud will forever grace a chapel ... only for his Reformation-era iconoclast descendant to righteously smash it to bits in the next scene.

* ''TheBigBangTheory'' opens with a rapid-fire montage showing nothing less than the entire history of the universe, the lyrics to the theme describing a hot, dense globe of matter exploding and expanding, the planets forming and congealing, humans evolving and civilization developing. (The [[SecondVerseCurse rarely heard second verse]] goes into more detail, describing prehistoric animals.) [[MundaneMadeAwesome It ends with the sitcom's five main characters sitting on a couch and staring at their TV.]]

* The music video of {{Dawsons Creek}}'s theme song, ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hJb5RvAs4BI I Don't Wanna Wait]]'' by Paula Cole depicts the singer as an immortal woman transcending through TheMiddleAges to TheRenaissance, to TheCavalierYears, RegencyEngland, TheRoaringTwenties up to ThePresentDay, with numerous lovers from different time periods, all who whom died.
* In a similar fashion to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' couch gag described below, the video to ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ub747pprmJ8 Right Here, Right Now]]'' by Music/FatboySlim shows the evolution of man, starting from primordial aquatic lifeforms.
* The protagonist of the video to ''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V66cr41DNnM Wir Sind Wir]]'' by Paul van Dyk and Peter Heppner is observing (and documenting with his camera) the [[UsefulNotes/{{Germany}} history of Germany]] from directly after WorldWarTwo to the fall of the BerlinWall.
* The video to ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hWTFG3J1CP8 Complete History Of The Soviet Union, Arranged To The Melody Of Tetris]]'' by Music/PigWithTheFaceOfABoy fits this trope, even though it is taking a more surreal approach in representing the different eras. (For starters, at no point in the history of the SovietUnion did giant ''{{Tetris}}'' blocks fall from the sky...)

* ''Film/{{Detention}}'' does this in reverse to highlight Elliot's time warp from the present day (2011) back to 1992. In order, the music jumps from the Music/PussycatDolls in 2008 to The Bravery in '05, Music/FiftyCent in '03, the Music/BackstreetBoys in '98, Music/{{Hole}} in '94, and finally ending with Music/PublicEnemy in '92, while his classmates' fashions go from modern-day to [[HipHop hip-hop]] to [[BoyBand boy-band]] to {{grunge}}.
