* Played with for a MindScrew effect in ''Film/TheNines'' during the "Reality Television" segment, which shows parts of an in-universe documentary series about the creation of a TV show. After having fallen out with Melissa [=McCarthy=] over replacing her as the star of his show, writer/show runner Gavin storms out onto the street and tells the camera man that he isn�t doing the reality show anymore. [[spoiler:The MindScrew comes in the form of Octavia Spencer looking toward the camera and asking, [[WhamLine "Who are you talking to?"]] Gavin looks at where the camera man had been; the audience still sees him from the camera�s perspective, but nobody is there.]]

* Used by the CEO of Little Chef when Heston Blumenthal confronted him about his 'nationwide' rollout of Heston's new menu... over ''three'' cafés.
* Liz Lemon ''Series/ThirtyRock'' and Tracy Jordan go through gymnastics trying to keep their feuding off Angie's reality show.
* A variation in ''Series/{{NCIS}}'': A news network makes it look like Gibbs is pulling this in response to a question regarding a supermodel's death on a Marine base; in reality, Gibbs was never asked the question, and he only ended the interview because a reporter [[MustHaveCaffeine spilled his coffee]].
* Played for laughs in ''ComicBook/TransformersMoreThanMeetsTheEye''. Rewind wants to make a documentary about the [[RagtagBunchOfMisfits Lost Light crew]], but in order to get permission to do so he must agree to let Ultra Magnus edit it before release. Any footage of Magnus doing something embarrassing ends up replaced with a card explaining that it was removed.

* This is also used in {{Mockumentary}} BlairWitch-type movies, and the cameraman always has some feeble answer, like "People will want to know" or "It keeps me sane," to justify the inevitable payoff of his 1st-person death scene.
