You're watching a rerun of your favorite movie on TV.

You can remember the lines to the catchy tune in the background. You know exactly when the character starts talking to his [[TheRedStapler green candy apple accounting calculator]]. Then suddenly there is a little noise you have never heard before and a little message on screen about how this calculator doesn't actually exist and the production company had to spend big money to make a fake one.

You, my friend, have been introduced to the wonderful world of [[TitleDrop Pop Up Trivia]]. Wherein the little tricks that the production people put into making your show are showed off, or interesting but irrelevant but interesting pieces of information are given, such as how many calories a person would burn in 500 miles and how long it would take, but not quite as vocal as a DVDCommentary.
