    In this [1] commercial featuring Cheese from Fosters Home For Imaginary Friends, Cheese licks the television screen.

    This seems to me like a common subtype of Painting the Fourth Wall, not a new trope.

    This is probably related to when the camera gets dirty in movies that don't acknowledge the camera is there (as in not 'found-footage').

    Sounds like it could be a supertrope to Screen Tap.

    In Grease, in the "Thunder Road" race scene, there's a point where one of the cars runs through a puddle, and it splashes the camera lens.

    Camera Abuse is related.

    This is NOT Painting The Fourth Wall, although people have commonly misused that trope for this.

    This badly needs more description, but I see a potential trope here, that's for certain: how's about including the 'not PTFW' bit in there? And, finding other related tropes?

    Radio also has its part to play: fiddling with the acoustics somehow (with a hint of hitting the mic, twiddling dials or other such fun stuff). I've heard that a few times; though, God help me thinking of a specific example off the top of my head.
