Vivien Shuo Zhou, Mike Shapiro and Brian Wansink have a new paper in press with the journal Appetite, entitled "The Audience Eats More if a Movie Character Keeps Eating: An Unconscious Mechanism for Media Influence on Eating Behaviors. For their research, they took a scene from Harold and Kumar Go to White Castle and showed participants either a version in which the characters are continuing to eat and one in which the characters finish eating.
