* Used for the TimeCompressionMontage in ''Film/JumpinJackFlash'', when Terri is playing the tape of MickJagger's song so she can get the lyrics ([[{{mondegreen}} with some difficulty]]). The clock hands are moving at normal speed, just cutting to a later time, and are combined with the spinning tape and tape counter.

* Parodied in a ''WesternAnimation/KimPossible'' episode, where Kim is in detention.

* ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Two Dozen And One Greyhounds" has a spinning clock hand when the last puppies are born.

* A different take on this trope (involving speed/distance/fuel consumption) is shown in the early space exploration movies such as '' Film/FrauImMond'' and ''Film/DestinationMoon'', with close-ups of spinning fuel gauges and accelerometers (along with {{narm}}ish contorted facial expressions) as the RetroRocket hurls into orbit.

Since showing the hands actually spinning has become a bit of a DeadHorseTrope outside comedy, a more common variation is to focus in on the clock and gradually fade or cut from it reading one time to it reading another. In video games they often accompany the FastForwardMechanic.

FastForwardMechanic. Might soon become a ForgottenTrope, or at least [[EvolvingTrope evolve]] into a similar thing involving a digital clock due to their prevalence. (Younger children, having grown up with only digital clocks, may not even know how to tell time on an analog clock, or might have never even seen one.)

* Early episodes of ''Series/GoodEats'' used the variant where they focused on the clock in Alton's kitchen, then looked back at it again to see that the 10 minutes (or whatever time was needed for this step in the recipe) had passed. Later ones occasionally use the same trope, but with a timer.
