* Not quite the same as this, but Music/AshleeSimpson's singing career went down in flames after she went on ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' to promote her new song and started lipsyncing to the wrong song...



* Played for laughs in Music/TypeONegative's Skip It, designed to sound like the CD is jumping.

* "Coin-Operated Boy" by [[Music/AmandaPalmer The Dresden Dolls]] has a section that's supposed to resemble one of these:
--> And I'll never let him go
-->And I'll never be alone

these. The music video loops with the lyrics, but her expression changes gradually through the looping from one of contentment to one of disgust.

** The music video loops with the lyrics, but her expression changes gradually through the looping from one of contentment to one of disgust.



* ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' includes the track "Nannaquin", which sounds like "Harlequin" as played on an old, failing record player. Near the end, it glitches this way, only put to an end by a RecordNeedleScratch.
** The song in [S]Flip also does this at the end.

* WesternAnimation/{{Arthur}} used this as an exposé for their literal ''FakeBand'' Binky, where the title character accidentally thinks a key component of the band's hologram generator is a trash can and throws a banana peel in it. You can guess what happened next.

* ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'': Perry is undercover masquerading as scientist Dr. Lloyd Wexler at an evil science convention in Britain, but when Doofenshmirtz makes Perry read from his autobiography, he almost gets caught since platypi can't speak (well in anything but that growling noise Perry usually makes). Thankfully he just happened to have a CD player and an audiobook version of said autobiography to lip sync to, until it randomly started skipping.

* ''WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants'': In "Gary Takes a Bath", Gary plants a record player with a shadow similar to himself on a tree with his meowing playing on it. When Spongebob pours water on it, it breaks and starts skipping.
** Not to mention "Pressure", when Sandy and Spongebob were about to race to the Krusty Krab:
-->'''Spongebob:''' Think you can a fair race in that clunky tin tube?
-->'''Sandy''': Why don't use ask my behind! That is, if you can catch it! ''(cut to a closeup of Sandy)'' What do you think of that, [=HydroPants=]?
-->'''Spongebob''': I'd say, I'm already halfway there!-halfway there!- ''(cut to a wider shot showing a record player in Spongebob's place)'' halfway there!-halfway there!

* This was an issue that radio stations had to watch for back in the days when everything was on phonograph records with systems that automatically changed turntables. There is a [[UrbanLegends too-good-to-be-true]] story passed around in the radio industry about a DJ who set up several records to go off one-after-another live and went down to the cafeteria for lunch. The speakers in the cafeteria was playing the station and when he got there a commercial for an audio version of ''Literature/MobyDick'' was playing but the record was skipping going "dick.. dick.. dick.. dick.. dick.. dick..". The DJ rushed up the stairs to the station and upon entering the studio slapped at the record player in a panic. The record player went "dick.. dick - *RecordNeedleScratch* '''''THAR SHE BLOWS!'''''"
** A similar story is told about a deejay for a Christian radio station who thought he could get away with an unauthorized break. The vinyl record he set up was a religious sermon that got stuck on exactly the most embarrassing point possible. His furious boss tracked him down and ordered him back to the studio. "Get back in there and listen to what's going on. When you get done fixing the problem, you're fired!" The deejay went back to the studio and found the recorded message, playing over the airwaves, stuck at "go to hell... go to hell... go to hell... go to hell...."

** The early days of FMV in CD-based games had similar problems - if you had a sufficiently low-speed CD-ROM drive (say a 2x), you might find data rendering faster than it could load, resulting in looping while it span up the next bit. "[[CommandAndConquer The Br-Br-Br-otherhood Of N-Nod]]", indeed...

* The 1938 LooneyTunes/MerrieMelodies cartoon "The Major Lied Til Dawn" had some African natives, stereotypically big-lipped, then the music starts skipping. A female native opens her mouth to show a record with the needle skipping on it. She replaces the needle, the music resumes normally, and she walks on.

* The ''TomTerrific'' story arc "The Everlasting Birthday Party" is all about this. Crabby Appleton has a specially created record that deliberately skips on the same groove so he'll be able to celebrate his birthday in perpetuity.

* A rather infamous real-life example from the ''Franchise/LEGOAlphaTeam'' PC game. When ran on Windows XP, all dialogue and music would loop over and over again after only a few seconds. What's worse is that this is potentially a GameBreakingBug: unless you turn off dialogue in the setting menu, the game will freeze after the "Trouble Train Depot" level because Tee Vee's speech will keep looping and the game will not progress.[[note]]If you turn dialogue back on afterwards, this bug also applies to "Trouble Sub Rescue" and "The D.O.O.M. Room" for the same reasons.[[/note]]

* Lyril suffers from this in Sierra's ''VideoGame/LighthouseTheDarkBeing''. She's been bound to a life support system in a chair since the age of 4, and by the time the player meets her, Lyril speaks this way almost all the time. It's implied that this comes from her life support malfunctioning.

It's implied that this comes from her life support malfunctioning. A holographic recording proves this, as she used to speak more clearly when it was made.

* In the fourth [[Creator/ThisIsIt Don't Hug Me I'm Scared]] video, the teacher (a 1990's style PC) teleports the three main characters to his digital world, which is very glitchy. Two parts stand out: when Red Guy exclaims "wow" while "admiring" the digital world, and when the computer tells the characters that there are over three things to do in his world. This also crosses into GroundhogDayLoop territory.
