* Rather bizarrely, considering the lowbrow humor of most of the movie, ''Film/ScaryMovie 3'' actually directly parodies this rarely-noticed-or-discussed phenomenon during its parody of ''Film/TheRing,'' with the main character ''[[MediumAwareness reacting]]'' to a [[CatScare sudden boat horn]] piped in from the next scene.
