* In 1945 FilmNoir ''Film/{{Detour}}'', Al the narrator continually address the audience as "you", as Al pleads with us to believe that he isn't a murderer and he didn't mean to do anything wrong and he only stole that dead guy's money and car because he had to and when he strangled that woman to death it was totally an accident...
--> "How many of you would believe it wasn't premeditated?

* Often done in-universe toward the end of police procedurals and courtroom dramas. The detective or [=DA=]confronts the perp and verbally reconstructs the crime as a form of interrogation. "If that news had gone public, it would have ruined you, so you felt that you had to silence him."

Added DiffLines:

* The Hungarian book ''Hajléktaland'' ("Homeless-land") is a documentary disguised as a tourist guide book. In the book you, the reader, are guided through Budapest and the surrounding areas with the assumption that you are homeless and you want to find safety, food, shelter, medical care, etc. The book never breaks SecondPersonNarration to build the reader's empathy toward the homeless. It is an intentionally harrowing read.

* Several stories - or the narration between the stories - in the ''Literature/WarriorCats'' [[ExpandedUniverse guidebooks]] are written this way. Occasionally it will be as if the reader is a cat interacting with the characters. Other times, it will be from one character speaking this way to another specific character that appears in the books. At times - notably the "so-and-so speaks" portions - the identity of the "you" isn't necessarily clear.
