A certain character is about to, or is in the process of doing, something dangerous. The screen then cuts to a graveyard or the scene of their funeral to immediately establish their death. Usually played for laughs in black comedy, or used in lieu of a Gory Discretion Shot.


Examples

  • In Zoolander, after the "freak gasoline fight accident".
  • The Other Guys, after Chris Danson and P.K. Highsmith throw themselves off a building.
  • The Simpsons, in the episode where Homer tries to become a hippie,this trope is subverted,as the camera heads to the hospital which is right next to the graveyard.
