When enjoying media for entertainment purposes, what specific sounds shatter your suspension of disbelief?
For me, it is the call of a loon. I grew up in Muskoka, which is a cottage district in Ontario. My ears prick up whenever I hear that bird song. I am immediately transported to memories of starry nights camping, or sitting on a dock at dusk.
Yesterday, while watching 24 S01E02, I heard a loon call out in the Mojave desert. Maybe they migrate that far... maybe... but still - it made me chuckle.
The biggest example of a bird song that ALWAYS cracks me up is approximately 3 minutes into Thriller by Michael Jackson.
"They're out to get you. Demons closing in on every side." CUE LOON.
