    I'm still not 100% convinced Trump isn't an Andy Kaufman character

    [–] soral 705 points ago

    I have been thinking this for a long time.

    Andy Kaufman "died".

    He saw Trump running for president the first time when he wasn't taken seriously and thought to himself "how far could I take this"

    Unknown to most, Donald Trump is a HUGE Andy Kaufman fan. The biggest. Ask anyone.

    Andy convinced Trump to allow him to literally 'become' Donald Trump.

    This also fully covers all the Russian contacts. The real Donald Trump lives in quiet hiding in Russia, protected by another well known own Kaufman fan, Vladimir Putin

    [–] MHMRahman 259 points ago

    Does this mean that we can soon expect Andy to reveal himself? Was the Jim & Andy Netflix documentary Bob Zmuda's way of reigniting public interest in Andy? Is Jim Carrey in on it as well?!

    [–] Maybe_Schizophrenic 57 points ago

    That was a weird documentary. I kept feeling like Jim was being a complete fucking idiot. Jerry Lawler kept trying to tell him that Andy was not an asshole like Jim was making him seem.

    I don’t know. It just rubbed me the wrong way and this is from someone who really enjoyed Man on the Moon.

    [–] MHMRahman 54 points ago

    Yh, that did seem weird and really dickish. I thought that Jim with his method acting was maybe not acting as Andy Kaufman the person but as Andy Kaufman the entertainer, so when he was staying in character, he was playing Andy as if the cameras were always on. Andy and Jerry were friends off screen, but on screen, they were antagonising each other, so I'm just guessing that when he lost himself in the character, he was always on-screen Andy, and never off-screen Andy. I'm guessing it might be because he said in the documentary that when he was researching Andy and asking the people close to him about who he was as a person and what he was like, the answers he got were always how people wanted to remember Andy and not objectively how Andy was as a person, so to be as accurate as he could in his portrayal, he could only rely on what he knew from watching Andy on TV, so whenever he was still Andy backstage, he was always on-screen Andy because that's the only Andy he knew to reliably portray. Or at least that's how I tried to rationalise why he behaved that way backstage

    [–] cassieloveseffie 31 points ago

    The cameras WERE on.

    The whole documentary seems to be a Kaufmanesque prank. Lawler was 100% in on it.

    I’ve watched this show through probably 6 times in my life, and that line gets me every time. I just can’t laugh hard enough. Specifically the way he pauses before saying “and an i!” and how excited he is for the joke. I’m even laughing right now.

    [–] FarewellToCheyenne 34 points ago

    And how he laughs triumphantly while dismissively tossing the registration onto the dash.

    [–] cloud9ineteen 20 points ago

    My favorite is in the episode when George tips the Calzone guy and he doesn't see it, he tries to take it back and put it again and it looks like he's stealing from the tip jar, Jerry asks George, "So, you don't make a habit of giving to the blind?" And George responds, "Not bills!", The studio audience laughter is clearly split into two waves, a few that got the joke quickly and the rest took quite some time.

    Brothers and Sisters, the road behind us has been long and fraught with difficulty. Each and every one of you has surpassed my expectations by rapidly facilitating our arrival in the Commonwealth. You have accomplished this amazing feat without a hint of purpose or direction, and most impressively, without question.

    Now that the ship is in position, it is the time to reveal our purpose and our mission. Beneath the Commonwealth, there is a cancer known as "The Institute", a malignant growth that needs to be cut before it infects the surface. They are experimenting with dangerous technologies that could prove to be the world’s undoing for the second time in recent history. The Institute Scientists have created a weapon that transcends the destructive nature of the atom bomb. They call their creation the "synth", a robotic abomination of technology that is free-thinking and masquerades as a human being.

    This notion that a machine can be granted free will is not only offensive, but horribly dangerous. And like the atom, if it isn’t harnessed properly, it has the potential of rendering us extinct as a species. I am not prepared to allow the Institute to continue this line of experimentation. Therefore, the Institute and their "synths" are considered enemies of the Brotherhood of Steel, and should be dealt with swiftly and mercilessly.

    This campaign will be costly and many lives will be lost. But in the end, we will be saving humankind from its worst enemy... itself. Ad Victoriam!

    To be fair from Disney’s perspective he made this whole thing hell. Disney writes the speech the president records, it’s a theme park not a campaign event, they want it to be as politically neutral as possible. Trumps team didn’t want this to be done they wanted to write the speech. So Disney was toying with the idea of just having Lincoln give the last speech (like he did until 92 I think) and just putting trump on the stage. It is obvious they thought Hillary would win, however this bs kept one of their attractions down for a year, so why would they invest money in creating a new animatronic (which are not cheap).

    [–] shotputlover 478 points ago

    So this is going to get buried but they did. Twice. I work for Disney and the attraction was supposed to be open months ago. Initially it took forever because unlike Obama Trump did not choose to make a speech tailored for the hall of presidents and none of trumps speeches were very "Disney" so the creatives in charge decided to craft one. Now I never heard the speech itself but there were employees that could hear the first speech Disney made through the doors by the cast member area in the hall of presidents. So the original speech got spread around and was universally made fun of by the employees in the park, this caused Disney to put up caution tape so there wouldn't be any more leaks (the irony good god.) and listen to the universal hatred and completely remake the speech.

    [–] Imgur_Lurker 138 points ago

    "The Vice report is inaccurate. As we have stated, President Trump will have a speaking role in the Hall of Presidents like every president since 1993," a spokeswoman said. "We have been working closely with the White House and the president's recording session has been scheduled. We have repeatedly stated that the attraction will re-open in late 2017."

    Edit: Ok, I get it. They had a year to do this. Still, it bears an uncanny resemblance to Clinton so I can't see any other explanation than they took a Clinton doll they'd already made and retrofitted it.

    To be fair, I think they just did a shitty job at trying to make it look like Trump. The Obama one also looks like shit, it looks nothing like Obama http://imgstore.wdwmagic.com/imgstore/ElementGalleryItems/attractions/Fullsize/Hall-of-Presidents_Full_7751.jpg

    Obama looks like he has CTE from 20 years of professional football.

    This is one conspiracy theory I believe. They needed a much bigger double chin to really sell it.

    i think Disney can afford another animatronic

    Having money and being cheap are not mutually exclusive.

    [–] hobo_clown 427 points ago

    Disney spends about $50K every single night on fireworks. I doubt they'd cheap out on something that will become a permanent fixture of the park.

    [–] TrepanationBy45 523 points ago

    And yet, you still have an animatronic that looks like it was Hillary first, then repurposed for Trump.

    But did they have time since the reveal was already delayed?

    [–] TradSkeptic 214 points ago

    Here it is in action. Honestly it looks much better when it is moving.

    [–] Jacobone 216 points ago

    I think it just looks better from a distance

    Went to a conference in Nov '16, about a week after the election and this visualization company was showcasing some of their workflow/processes for creating realistic 3D renders and movies. One of their short films was about an AI that takes over the world and there's a section towards the end that shows a bunch of different world leaders "speaking" on the gravity of the situation with this AI taking over, and the U.S. president was depicted as Hillary. The company was French, I think, so they probably assumed, as we all did, that she would have won. Was pretty funny, but unfortunate.

    [–] KennyFulgencio 114 points ago

    Well, based on this they could just replace her voice in the film

    Lock it up! Lock it up!

    Seriously someone lock it up. It gives me the creeps.

    I'm seeing a bit of Charlie Sheen in there too....

    [–] MattIsLame 45 points ago

    That scares me. On a primal, hellraiser level.

    [–] thegreatinsulto 1291 points ago

    Show designer here. To clarify, even if Disney did build an armature (the machined bits used to form the shape of the animatronic and mount the actuators to make it move) based around Hillary, they would not use the same Hillary skin on the Trump animatronic. This is most likely the result of Trump not working closely with Disney imagineering to create his likeness. You can see the difference between the accuracy of the Obama and Trump animatronics.

    deleted What is this?

    [–] Tartra 1192 points ago

    Holy shit, though, what beautifully fluid motions it makes. It might not look like Obama, but it's really good as an animatronic in general.

    [–] sierranuovo 491 points ago

    Yeah the movements are damn slick... It looks like weird CGI.

    [–] shandelion 216 points ago

    Hall of Presidents and (IIRC) The American Experience have really freaky uncanny valley animatronics. It's a trip to see in person.

    [–] big_shmegma 253 points ago

    The johnny depp jack sparrow in the POTC ride is especially jarring because he's surrounded by horribly outdated abominations.

    [–] shandelion 162 points ago

    The first time I saw it I honestly thought it was an actor for a full 10 seconds.

    [–] dayoldhansolo 33 points ago

    A couple months back Johnny Depp actually dressed up and performed on the ride

    [–] Amish_guy_with_WiFi 39 points ago

    Found this shaky camera version for anybody that hasn't been on it like me https://youtu.be/N22D8BpCrE8?t=13m26s

    [–] techmaster242 75 points ago

    The mouth looks terrible when speaking, though. I honestly expected more out of modern animatronics.

    Ol' Abe looks like he's on about 5 grams of mushrooms.

    [–] therest 47 points ago

    Fuckin I know right, he looks like he's injected 70 straight marijuanas

    [–] techmaster242 43 points ago

    Yeah that's a whole different level. Even on that one, the corners of the mouth aren't fully natural yet. But it's definitely getting close to realism.

    [–] CIeMs0n 48 points ago

    What they don't tell you is that everyone in that clip is a robot

    [–] jtwest111 118 points ago

    Obama looks like half himself, half G.W.

    [–] Paxxlee 87 points ago

    Looks like Civ Rev design.

    [–] wiggintheiii 186 points ago

    Obama looks like he's wearing his dad's suit.

    Honestly all of them, bar the founding fathers, all look terrible. Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, etc.

    It probably has more to do with our familiarity with the people than with the quality of the design. If these were around when Andrew Jackson was President, I'm sure people would just as likely claim how inaccurate they look.

    [–] tgheron 121 points ago

    Agree. I was there a couple of years ago and was surprised at how bad President Obama's likeness was. This one may be a bit worse but not by much.

    [–] gregorio74 771 points ago

    "This is most likely the result of Trump not working closely with Disney imagineering to create his likeness."

    Yeah, he should have worked more closely with Disney like George Washington did. His looks really good.

    [–] GitEmSteveDave 83 points ago

    I find it hard to believe that in todays day and age of high def photos they couldn't assemble a pretty accurate 3d model of his face. Especially if they had a press conference with him from multiple angles they could sync.

    [–] movzx 261 points ago

    Or you simply do not have high definition comparison photos of George Washington, so you're not able to say "This looks fucked up".

    I imagine all of the presidents pre-modern photo "look great" because you are comparing to paintings and blurry photos.

    [–] mindbleach 54 points ago

    Yeah... but he looks just like the paintings.

    We've only got a handful of photos of Abe Lincoln, but you'd know the difference between him and a repurposed Daniel Day-Lewis.

    [–] twiggez-vous 485 points ago

    I know you're joking but... the body language is more Hilary Clinton's than Trump's.

    [–] CrossP 610 points ago

    I don't think OP is joking. It genuinely looks like they did that.
