Transformers has a lot of funny background scenes. For example at transformers the last knight there was a scene where Bumblebee and Crosshairs randomly started fighting in the background while the main focus was on Mark Wahlberg in the foreground. Transformers has a lot of scenes like that

Fun fact: In Harry Potter, when shooting scenes involving doing homework (such as lunch scenes in the dining hall), the reason many of the kids were acting so well like they were stressed or confused when "doing homework" it's because they weren't acting and the directors had them working on their actual school work

In Despicable Me 2 there's one hilarious background moment many perhaps haven't noticed: when the Minions are helping Gru producing jams with every kind of fruit, one of them to amuse another wears a fruit crown doing a Chiquita Banana dance, but behind them there are 2 other Minions arguing with wooden hammers, the 1st hits the 2nd, then the 2nd hits the 1st, but the 1st doesn't answer so the 2nd becomes desperately worried and checks if he's alright, a normally tragic event that in this case becomes hilarious.

One of my favorite background jokes was in Body Heat. William Hurt had just, apparently, violated the prohibition against perpetuities in wills for the second time in as many months. As he and Kathleen Turner are talking in the foreground, his competitor attorney, Ted Danson, pirouettes across the parking lot in the background. A marvelous display of schadenfreude.

I think you should have mentioned Han's name is actually spelled "Han Seoul-oh" its definitely a nod to Han Solo but just saying Solo even if it was spelled Seoul-oh in the script doesn't really get the point across. Well made video though.

*Taking some liberties with the word background aren’t ya? I almost want to say clickbait. I don’t know about anyone else, but when your saying these are things in the background they shouldn’t be the literal joke of the scene and therefore what your supposed to be seeing. Like your pointing out people running from the church.*
