**A lot of traffic jams aren't caused by the car accident itself, but the other cars stopping to gawk.

* In the climactic [[spoiler:dance]] battle of Film/GuardiansOfTheGalaxy, a crowd of people shows up as a convenient audience. This is all the more inexplicable because [[spoiler:the city they're in had previously been evacuated, dive-bombed, and borderline ''[[ColonyDrop colony dropped]]'', yet there are still plenty of people around to gawk.]]

* Happened in the Film/SpiderManTrilogy. In ''Film/SpiderMan'', they help Spidey by throwing insults and rocks at the Green Goblin. ''Film/SpiderMan2'' plays on this after Spidey is knocked out saving the train and passengers; the crowd puts his mask back on him and stands up to DoctorOctopus, only for him to shove them aside, snatch the defeated Spidey, and carry him off.

-->"And at the words, as if they been some magic spell, the street suddenly seemed to wake from slumber. It seethed with human life. Maids popped out of windows, areas disgorged landladies, the very stones seemed to belch forth excited spectators."

** Another D&D example: the Complete Bard's Handbook from the 2nd edition had a spell called Instant Audience. With this, a bard [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin could conjure up an audience]] to watch a performance. Misusing the spell though (like trying to use the audience as a human shield) made the spell end.
