The Diddy Laugh is a very commonly used sound effect which often appears in TV, radio and film. When I hear it, it is like being hit in the ears with an iron. I like to point it out to people, who usually look blankly at me. Now I pass this affliction on to you.

Seen an example? Email or tweet me.

Trailer for Woman in Black: Angel of Death

I enjoyed the first Woman in Black. It wasn't shockingly original, but seemed to combine the horror staples in a suitably creepy way.
So, for the sequel, it seems reasonable to show us the same creepy dolls and rocking chair moving on its own again.

But using the Diddy Laugh seems to remove the scares for me. This trailer makes a real feature of it. Twice! The first one is at 1 minute and 17 seconds

Heard in trailer for As Above So Below

This is a horror movie trailer, so it's not suitable for kids, but the laugh is loud and clear at 1 minute and 57 seconds.
