* Played with in ''Series/MakoMermaidsAnH2OAdventure''. As Zac and Evie attempt to move Rita (stuck in her mermaid form, and using her magic to turn herself invisible) somewhere out-of-the-way, a random student walks toward the "empty" space between them, sees them, stops for a moment, and completely nonchalantly walks around them, as though expecting the sheet of glass.

* In an episode of ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' ''Bubble Boy'', this trope had been taken [[UpToEleven Up To Eleven]]. The Rowdyruff Boys (plus Bubbles, minus Boomer) had played a game where they would spit at a plane and see who hits. Of course, they all missed. But when the first two boys did it, it was sent into space just as two astronauts were replacing the lens for their satellite. You know what happened next.

* The Belgian travel company Eurostar ran an ad campaign to promote new rail service from Belgium to London in 2007, which featured two workmen carrying a sheet of glass about to collide with a John Cleese lookalike doing the famous Silly Walk from [[MontyPythonsFlyingCircus Monty Python's]] "Ministry of Silly Walks" sketch. The tagline: "Watch out! London is just around the corner!"
