Playing an uncredited role as Snow White - Adriana Caselotti
Walt Disney insisted on a sort of kayfabe for his works back in the day, as he claimed that disclosing those who voiced the characters would spoil the illusion. This presented an issue with Caselotti as she found it difficult to sign up for later roles. Jack Benny recalled asking Disney's permission to use Adriana for his radio show, only for the animation mogul to decline: "I'm sorry, but that voice can't be used anywhere. I don't want to spoil the illusion of Snow White."

Featured in warning video of a suicide bomber - Petula Clark
To greet the Christmas Morn on December 25, 2010, Anthony Quinn Warner set up an infamous and mysterious suicide bombing in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. A part of the ongoing mystery is how he sought (successfully) to minimize human casualties other than his own, by having the RV, containing his bombs, play a loud warning audio, warning people to evacuate the area because the vehicle was about to explode. He set it up so that in the background of his audio, "Downtown" by Petula Clark was playing. Among the few clues to emerge early on as to his motive is a report that he had a long-standing hatred for police. The event corresponds in time to the near-end to a year in which fierce protests against police actions were common nationwide. How ironic, since a noteworthy result of his act has been how several local police officers were hailed for their heroism in expediting the evacuation!
