Compare and contrast Waking Ned Devine, a comedy film written and directed by Kirk Jones, in a broad sense is about a man who wins the lottery after playing all his life only to die from the shock of it and have the villagers claim the ticket for themselves after his death.

In fact, Jones used situational irony to draw attention to the main parts of the story such as when Ned had died from winning the lottery after playing his whole life, only to die from shock shortly after.
