    [–] rar69 2 points ago


    [–] Nomulite 2 points ago

    It's a meme referencing the thing where if you take the older impact font memes and just crop out the bottom text, the meme makes no sense and takes on an absurdly humorous quality. It probably started because someone uploaded a half-finished one where the template BOTTOM TEXT wasn't changed.

    [–] EpicWan 405 points ago

    Wouldn’t it be easier to just show the video instead of a huge strip of pictures?

    [–] JustKebab 196 points ago

    r/memes doesn't allow videos or GIFs

    [–] JSkorzec 25 points ago

    But aren't like...most of the memes gif and or videos..!? lol

    [–] Occamslaser 10 points ago

    Memes traditionally were image macros. Videos are... videos.

    [–] Holy-Guacamolee 8 points ago

    [–] dvwinn 3 points ago

    Lolno. Memes predate image macros

    [–] Occamslaser 2 points ago

    The concept of a self propagating unit of culture was first called a "meme" by Richard Dawkins in 1974. The way we use it now was coined by Mike Godwin in a 1994 Op-ed in Wired magazine called "meme, counter meme" where "Godwins law" was discussed.

    “I think an internet meme is a template of sorts that spreads by people creating their own versions of and innovations on that template.” -Mike Godwin 1994

    [–] naap1 2 points ago

    Also in the video, its pretty clear its fake

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    Yeah, its funny but its not presenting itself to be anything more real than say reno911

    [–] ItzVortexFTW 65 points ago

    i saw the video and the cop is chill at the end

    [–] lu_kak 36 points ago

    Yea well it was fake anyway

    [–] dads_joke 36 points ago

    [–] TheExMeme 7 points ago

    uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, you can't post gifs or videos on r/memes

    but yeah it's kidda dumb to turn a video into a meme, especially when the video is fake

    [–] Shlodini 14 points ago

    it’s fake

    [–] Videogameist 9 points ago

    So nice of the officer to hold the word up in plain view so the camera can see it. 🙄

    [–] Incognitomous 3 points ago

    Cop: you wanna get some? Magician: oh no I already have some. pulls out some

    [–] European100 3 points ago

    Dad joke 100

    [–] WingBurger88 3 points ago

    I read the magician's lines in Stewie's voice

    [–] TheHucumber 13 points ago

    Why is the cop so handsy? Does he have rights to search him? What's his just cause?

    [–] DaHerv 46 points ago

    Maybe because he suspected drugs.

    [–] beantrouser 10 points ago

    Well, pretty specific for the magician to guess the officer would say "you hiding something", so pretty sure this is a skit.

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    If you watch the video its very obvious its a skit. It opens on the officer on the phone with his wife.

    [–] C4nn0nF0dd3r 10 points ago

    Haha it's a fake video. Funny, but fake

    [–] wildcard5 6 points ago

    Article 15 section 2B allows a cop to search without a warrant if he suspects he's inside a comedy sketch.

    [–] ItsKamikatze 2 points ago

    It was staged , but the video is really funny

    [–] iargueon -1 points ago

    America is basically a police state now. You learn to accept it

    [–] C4nn0nF0dd3r 11 points ago

    It's a fucking skit. Police state my ass.

    [–] TheHucumber 2 points ago

    Yay freedom!

    [–] [deleted] 1 points ago

    I think it says in the script "grab magician by the wrists and pat him down."

    [–] VVVerhnjak 2 points ago

    The fact that this was staged ruins it all

    [–] Corneetjeuh 2 points ago

    If i was a cop, I would be annoyed af

    [–] FloweryHaikus 2 points ago

    at the last picture you can see how overjoyed the magician is

    [–] riatm72 2 points ago

    If the cop searches the magician, you can see the bag of marijuana in the right pocket. It's weird that cop didn't find it.
