Pull my finger is a strange sound that is heard at the end of a videocassette. It is also called the Moaning Sound.

It is a blare that is heard for 5 seconds over a black screen, then either static appears on-screen, and/or the tape stops and rewinds. Sometimes, the sound plays twice. There are also two variants where this blare is heard on the same background as the Rank Video Services America test pattern (White Screen of Death), and also a combination of the white screen variant and the 2 times variant, but this blare is heard 2 times on the other variant (which has this blare heard 2 times).

This is mostly on tapes from companies like:
