Rudy Giuliani's unfortunate 'Borat' appearance is now a meme

Rudy Giuliani, national clown, is once again trending. 

Giuliani makes an unfortunate appearance in the Borat sequel, which premieres Friday. A picture from the incident that features Giuliani — who, let us remind you, is still President Trump’s personal lawyer — in a compromising position is making the rounds on Twitter. 

In the new movie, aptly titled Borat Subsequent Moviefilm, Sacha Baron Cohen’s Borat Sagdiyev is back in the United States as a Kazakh operative. He is seeking to befriend allies of the Trump administration with the help of his “non-male son” Tutar. Borat and his 15-year-old daughter Tutar, played by Maria Bakalova, crash a crisis pregnancy center, attend a debutante ball, and somehow manage to seduce former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani.  Read more…

Large swaths of the internet were today years old when they learned the nodding GIF guy is actually Robert Redford.

The classic reaction GIF, which is generally used to convey approval, is sourced from the 1972 film Jeremiah Johnson, in which Redford plays the titular role. Turns out, though, a nonzero number of people thought the guy in the GIF was comedian Zach Galifianakis, who did not play the titular role in Jeremiah Johnson. (He was 3 years old when the movie was released.) 

We know this thanks to a post from Splinter called “Did You Know the Nodding Meme Guy Is Robert Freakin’ Redford???” Judging by the response, a few people did not, and the people who did are ready to makes jokes and brag about it.  Read more…
