Added DiffLines:

** At the end of "Fan-Bidextrous", we get a close-up on Fanboy before a pull-back reveals he's stuck to Mr. Mufflin covered in cement.

* During TheTeaser of the ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' episode "Waking Moments", Tuvok is woken up by a call to report to TheBridge. The camera stays tight on his face until he reports for duty and is greeted by laughter from the other characters; the camera then pulls back to reveal that he forgot to get dressed. (It turns out to be a NotWearingPantsDream.)

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x99lnVeY4jQ A much-circulated unintentional example]] from CSPAN. Closeup on Cheney in the Rose Garden, all serene, nice sunny day. Bush is speaking offscreen. The zoom out reveals that Cheney is not in the audience or next to the podium, but way off to the side in the shadows, apparently lurking behind some trees and shrubs as he watches the press conference progress. It probably wasn't as weird as it looked out of context, but it generated a lot of [[StarWars Darth Sidious]] jokes.
