Nowadays the car chase version is a DeadHorseTrope. Often accompanied by a FruitCart or CardboardBoxes. See also WindowPain. If it's a person going through a window, it's DestinationDefenestration.

* A cartoon referenced the 'pretend to carry glass' trick. The boss of a glass factory is suspiciously watching two of his employees. He tells the foreman to keep an eye on them. "I'm not sure they're carrying anything."

* Parodied in ''Series/GreatNews'' episode "War is Hell", in which Katie, barreling through the newsroom at top speed, crashes through--the empty space between two crewmen ''practicing'' how to carry a sheet of glass.

* There's a subversion in ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'' as well: during a vehicle chase there is constant cuts between Rigby looking forward and screaming and two men carrying a glass sheet... then the vehicles pass by the street next to the guys carrying the glass... who promptly drop the glass and take out their phones to take pictures of the chase happening next to them. Rigby was screaming at a picture of a dog with a hat that Aylene sent to him.

* Similarly to the above: 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!"

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Storks}}'', Junior has to go through a maze of glass panes inside a warehouse.while being chased by wolves. Since birds can't see glass, he ends up hitting each and every one until he finally makes it out, only to then run into the classic sheet being carried by two men.

* Possibly the UrExample: a 1910 children's book called ''The Slant Book'' (it really is slanted in shape) is about a baby carriage gone runaway down a steep hill and the mayhem it causes to the delight of the child inside. At one point the cart goes through a sheet of glass, but as everything is PlayedForLaughs no one gets hurt. You can read the book [[http://www.gutenberg.org/files/17254/17254-h/17254-h.htm here]]-- oh, and we get a [[FruitCart spilled cart]] and a HydrantGeyser too!
