The first Energizer Bunny ad campaign had the drumming toy rabbit, who was still going, march his way through other (fake) commer—"Still going! Nothing outlasts the Energizer. They keep going, and going...".
Old Spice similarly interrupts other (fake) commercials, claiming that it's too powerful to let an ad-break end. (It's probably supposed to run in conjunction with another Old Spice ad, but sometimes it's played in isolation.)
The much maligned horror film The Devil Inside has its infamous lack of en- The events of this entry have never been fully explained. Visit tvtropes.org or more information on the ongoing investigation.
After the scene in Wreck-It Ralph where the audience learns the origin of the Arc Words "going Turbo" Explanation It comes from Turbo, a racing-game character whose game-jumping in a fit of jealousy got his game and another disconnected., animated pictures started popping up of Turbo interrupting other video games involving vehicles, driving by with his smug grin and his catch-phrase "Turbo-tastic!"
This is used in the Interrupting Cow joke, as follows:
Monty Python: Sometimes, when you least expect - NOOOOOOOOOOObody expects the Spanish Inquisition!
Alternately, squished by a giant cartoon foot.
A knight in full armour who hits the person who is talking with a dead chicken, thus ending the sketch.
Of course, the colonel, who interrupts the sketch and ends it because it is too silly.
And now, for something completely different...
Game of Thrones is one of the most pirated shows these days, but one version of the "Walk of Punishment" episode cuts the sound out early in favor of the end credits, drowning out A BEAR THERE WAS, A BEAR, A BEAR!
On El Chavo del ocho, when he gets really annoyed with somebody (usually either El Chavo or La Chilindrina), Don Ramón (or sometimes another character) will sometimes (ˇFuera de aqui!note roughly, "(Get) out of here!") but...(ˇFuera de aqui!) but I...(ˇFuera!) but...(ˇFuera!) but...(ˇFuera!)...
As the current page image shows, the Kanye West "Imma let you finish" meme is sometimes used in this-Yo Troper! I'm real happy for ya, and imma let you finish, but this is one of the greatest pages of all time! ONE OF THE GREATEST PAGES OF ALL TIME!!!!-fashion.
Was (Not Was): Sometimes, people will start to write a post, but then their parents will open the door, get on the floor, everybody walk the dinosaur.
The Monster Mash is occasionally used as an alternative to the Bel-Air theme song.
This eventually became a problem as audiences began interrupting any heel promo, drowning out the dialogue for home viewers. On the plus column, it started teaching wrestlers not to rely on the overdone "portentous statement followed by dramatic pause" style of promo delivery.
Edge: [Running down the ramp with the Money In The Bank briefcase] I'M CASHING IT IN! I'M CASHING IT IN! RING THE DAMN BELL!
The Wyatt Family's entrance starts with a Jump Scare that blacks out the arena and bombards the TV viewer's screen with a quick jumble of disturbing images before they enter.
Actually, this happens fairly often. A guy's in the ring cutting a promo, only to be cut off by another wrestler's entrance music. (Especially effective if the wrestler's entrance music starts with an attention getting soundbyte, catchphrase, or Epic Riff.) The interrupted wrestler's reaction to this, depending on the context, can range from obvious annoyance to full-blown Oh, Crap. The resounding BONG and consequent darkness that preludes the entrance of The Undertaker being a prime example.
I was going on TV Tropes, thinking about how to add to the Warhammer 40,000 article, when suddenly I heard a rumbling sound. I looked around a bit, and concluded it must be coming from underneath the table my monitor was sitting on. I stood up and looked underneath the table, when, out of nowhere, a frakking Baneblade came out from under my computer, smashed it and the table, then shot up my modem and entire Chaos Space Marine army. How the hell did a 300 ton tank sneak underneath my computer? It would have to take some kind of tactical genius t- CREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEDDDDDDDDD!
On some Mass Effect 2 message boards, Garrus' combat shouts "HEADSHOT!" and "Impressive!", due to his enthusiastic voice acting during combat, have also become memes, though obviously not to the extend of We are assuming control .
Alongside that, Garrus also has "Can it wait? I'm in the middle of some calibrations." Even after the Romance Sidequest.
Perhaps Commander Shepard can shed some light onI've had enough of your disingenuous assertions. SHEPARD PAUNCH!!!
Shepard's 'I should go'. BioWare even made a shirt of it.
It's worth noting that this meme is not mutated from its original form at all. Thanks to an Ascended Glitch in the games themselves, every time Elzam engages in battle, Trombe will override even the most dramatic final boss music.
On 4chan and in similar circles, flash movies (usually NSFW ones) are occasionally "hooded", wherein the subject of the video has a crude MS Paint blackface imposed over them while DMX's "Where The Hood At" plays, usually just when it seems the viewer is about to see some boobs.
If you hang around long enough, you may...*five minutes of epic fighting with an anthropomorphic chicken later*... anyway, you might see Peter getting sidetracked by some random throwback to an earlier episode.

This is most certainly a remnant of the era of Fido Net and similar messaging networks, conected via BB Ses before the advent of the Internet. Users usually connected to a BBS via a phone line (one phone line, one user) and they could usually write messages on forums directly on their terminal emulation software instead of using an off-line, separate program. When they were typing the message and the line got suddenly noisy, the software interpreted the line noise as random characters. The "NO CARRIER" was the standard modem response after an interrupted connection; whether the text ended being part of the message or not depended on the software, but it always appeared in the console of the interrupted user; hence the meme.
This probably has happened to most people when they were kids.

Any and all TV broadcasts have been subject to this whenever a major or otherwise serious news event- "We interrupt our regularly scheduled trope entry to bring you this special report"..."This concludes our special report. We now resume our regularly scheduled trope entry." -occurs.
There's also those people who interrupt TV news reporters broadcasting live to yell things like "Baba Booey!"
