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:
Pacific Arts Video
Columbia Pictures Home Entertainment (especially on 1982 VHS tapes that have the normal 1000hz WSOD, like Union City)
RCA/Columbia Pictures Home Video
Columbia TriStar Home Video
Paramount Home Video
Warner Home Video (on some pressings of Batman and some prints of other tapes)
MGM Home Entertainment (on some pressings of the 1998 30th Anniversary THX VHS of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang)
MCA Videocassette, Inc. (especially on 1980-1983 VHS tapes that have the normal 1000hz WSOD, like Same Time Next Year)
MCA Home Video
MCA/Universal Home Video (some tapes)
