"Made in America" was the final episode of The Sopranos became infamous for its ending. In the last few minutes, Tony Soprano arrives at a diner and begins to play "Don't Stop Believin'" by Journey on a jukebox. In the last seconds, Tony looks at the door when the bell rings, and the screen cuts to black for 10 seconds.

Effects[edit | edit source]

James Gandolfini was given the jukebox as a gift by the producers of the show when it ended. It absorbed the feelings of the viewers' shock at the 10 seconds of black. When the song Don't Stop Believin by Journey is chosen, everyone around the jukebox will freeze. However, the user will be able to freely move around for the 10 seconds the effect lasts. Afterwards, the user will hear "Don't Stop" for an hour after use.
