This is where a television show or film will speed up the film and the comedy comes from the actions you see the actors perform. Audio is similarly sped up and is unintelligible and the action that occurs on screen will often go from somewhat logical to outright absurd.

Additionally, in some cases the humor can also be derived from the [[MediumAwareness continuity errors]] [[BreakingTheFourthWall resulting from fast-forwarding the action]].

Not to be confused with the GilliganCut.



[[folder: Anime And Manga ]]

* In the first episode of ''LightNovel/HaiyoreNyarkoSan'', Nyarko's explanation for why she's on Earth gets fast-forwarded almost immediately, complete with VHS-style distortion. Slowing the sequence down to half speed reveals that her dialog directly quotes the exact same scene from the original light novel, except that there, she went on for much, ''[[MotorMouth much]]'' longer.
** During said speech Nyarko remarks that her boss is unreasonable, naps all the time, and gets "destroy-the-universe angry" if you wake him up -- which reveals to fans of the CthulhuMythos that said boss is Azathoth, the deity who exists above all others in the Mythos[[note]]as well as Nyarlathotep's father in Lovecraft's stories, though this doesn't seem to be the case for ''Nyarko-san''[[/note]].

[[folder: Video Games ]]

* ''Videogame/NoMoreHeroes'' has one late game conversation fast forwarded [[spoiler:[[ slowed down]] it reveals [[ParentalIncest father-daughter incest]].]] The game hints ("It's impossible, It'll only jack up the age rating of this game even further") that the conversation was fast-forwarded to avoid a higher rating, but this isn't actually the case: {{Suda 51}} states that [[WordOfGod it was actually sped up due to]] RuleOfFunny...that, and the dialogue is a fairly lengthy {{Infodump}}.

* In ''VideoGame/TomodachiLife'' a Mii can ask you to listen to what he or she has to say about either their sweetheart, spouse, or child. After a little while of talking in 2x speed, they start getting fast-forwarded more while the subtitles read "Yadda yadda yadda", "Something something something" and "Blather blather blather". They finish with a line that wraps things up at normal speed.


[[folder: Web Original ]]

* Used in ''TheDementedCartoonMovie'', where two guys are trying to fly a rocket to Mars. After a handful of failed attempts, one of them decides to spare the viewers the trouble of watching it all again and fast-forwards through it -- only to go further than intended and wind up knee-deep in Zeeky bombs. In the next take he says he'll "fast-forward correctly this time" and the duo arrives safely on the surface of Mars.
