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. The {{Inverted}} version of this trope would be RewindGag.

* 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.

** During said speech Nyarko remarks that her boss is unreasonable, naps all the time, and gets angry enough to destroy the universe if you wake him up -- which reveals to fans of the Franchise/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]].

* In ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', [=GLaDOS=] says that she has to tell you something important about the testing chamber you're in. Being [=GLaDOS=], she skips through the warning quite quickly. [[spoiler: Slowed down, she's [[ reciting a passage from]] ''Literature/MobyDick''.]]

[[folder: Web Original]]
* Used in ''WebAnimation/TheDementedCartoonMovie'', where two guys are trying to fly a rocket to Mars.

* In WebVideo/TheNostalgiaCritic episode where he riffs on the movie ''Film/BattlefieldEarth'', after seeing the absurdity of the planet's inhabitants never seeing an explosion when the said planet has an atmosphere made out of radiation and excessively use guns, he starts pounding his fists on the desk and screams "THIS IS STUPID!!! THIS IS STUPID!!! STUPID!!! STUPID!!!..." and he keeps saying stupid to the point where his voice rapidly-speeds-up-to-chipmunk voice and the footage gets undercranked while [[SanitySlippage going into a complete screaming tirade about it]]. He then ends the tirade with a double facepalm and whimpering in a chipmunk voice, and he then says in his normal voice that he's not in the right mindset for the featured movie, so he then takes a hammer and bashes himself in the head with it, and afterwards he gets disoriented and [[NonSequiturThud randomly says "Duh huh, I like spayth chipth."]]
* LetsPlay/{{raocow}} frequently fast-forwards portions of his Let's Play videos if the content is relatively unimportant, commonly referred to by him and his fans as either 'chipmunk time' or 'chibi-cow'.
