* ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' played this for laughs with the superhero Montage. He has the power to create these by touching his fists together twice and saying "boop boop". Among the things he uses this power for is to build a shed, teach a guy Spanish, travel several miles, and age a guy to near-senility in a matter of a few seconds. Then his arch-nemesis End-Credits Mon comes in and ends the program.

* Spoofed in the film ''Film/TeamAmericaWorldPolice'', with a song entitled "We Need A Montage", which explains away the technique as it plays over a montage. "And with every shot show a little improvement; to show it raw would take too long! It's gonna take a ''montage''!"
** The same song originally appeared in a ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' episode
** Various montages are also spoofed by [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner Strong Bad]] in one of his [[http://www.homestarrunner.com/sbemail117.html emails]].
