This is so wholesome!
At 86, he watched a video of his retirement when he was in his 60's and commented about how young he was. I certainly need to take heed to these words. I'm in my 30's and worry about aging, but it's so silly to worry about such things.
This is just classy, graceful and adorable at the same time. We have certainly lost a step somewhere in terms of grace while adjusting to the digital world..

Ffs OP give the man his money back
Ouh ninjas cutting onions again
I occasionally write thank you letters (hand written) but never this good. I need to step up my game.
That is so sweet! I miss getting letters in the mail 😞
Make sure there transferred to digital video files as well!!! Tell him that if he can get it done.
This definitely made me tear a little! Made me think of my grandparents and some VHS tapes we have.
VCR for anyone wondering what it's called.
That type of handwrittentyped content is so awesome. Needs to happen more in life!
I can’t imagine how it must have felt for him seeing videos from over 25 years ago and in general of his whole life
Idk maybe it’s because my grandfather passed rather recently but this really hit me. That’s an adorable letter. Shit, OP, frame that.
This is so good. I love it!!
You never know how the little things you do will affect someone so completely as this.
In addition to being awesome, this really makes me wish I had recorded more of our family time. We have tons of pictures, so that’s nice but pictures don’t capture personality, voices, and mannerisms to really take you back to those places.
This needs more attention
This is lovely
this is so poignant
One of those things that goes straight to the heart ❤️
This is amazing! Thank you for sharing. Graceful, correct, and adorable!
Look at you, making old people cry...
Seriously though, sometimes the littlest things help people way more than one could ever imagine.
Old people are the greatest!
A small gesture of gratitude can really go a long way to make someone's day better.
The icing on the cake is now she can watch her Night Court tapes
This is the best thing I have ever read.
That is fantastic. You should write him back.
I wish there were some way they could see all the positive comments their letter has generated.
This makes me wanna cry. Can only imagine how it felt to see those loved ones on film after being gone for so long.
Jeez third post I’ve read in minutes that wants to test the water works!
I'm 30, and I went from VCR/VHS, to CD/DVD/USB to streaming only. Amazing how much progress has been made and so quickly.
im not crying you are
Oh wow my day suddenly got amazing. Thank you for sharing this.
Oh bless. That’s so lively.
Jesus Christ this is sweet
Jesus that was fucking adorable.
Glad he didn’t buy the blow-up doll you posted last week!
You sure you didn't write it?
This is by far the cutest old man. I appreciate how he went into just enough detail to make me feel his happiness.
You might want to consider getting a backup at a second-hand store.
I hate it when that happens.
Got to hand it to you, this is a great pic!
Genuine question: How do you fix that? Can you pry the fingers off the handle, or do you need to reconnect to the arm to do it?
Hey bruh...you umm..need a hand?
Your t shirt is amazing. I see Skywalker irony.
Go go gadget fist!
Sometimes I envy you. Imagine walking through some stores with your wife, hold her hand, press the hidden button, find a seat to relax and let her walk around with "you"
Great photoshop battle pic
Don't you just hate it when your hand gets disconnected to your arm and stuck to the fridge?
I swear, every damn Monday...
I was looking for a line that would retract the hand
Huh, this is a problem i didn't know existed.
Go go gadget fridge!
The clone trooper on your shirt is just as disappointed as you are
What's her name?
Didn't see fridge handle or read title. Brain saw projectile prosthetic hand in flight
Do you ever take your hand off and pretend to be Mega-Man?
Prosthetics are getting very cool how functional is it?
Hey I have that same shirt
Do you need a hand with that?
Curious to how much an advanced prosthetic like yours costs? Was some of the cost covered by insurance or the like?
Gotta twist it to lock it in. 😉 Nice hand by the way how do you like it?
Someone give this guy a hand
I’ll be baaack
Big hero six
How long until he turns to the dark side?
This should be a super glue commercial!!
I had that shirt. Took it back, I didn’t like the way it fit.
You need to attach a rope and then you can grapple around like Batman or something!
no sweat, this happens to all of......hmm, nope, we're in uncharted territory here. god speed, mate!! ;)
he did a little more than just dunk, OP
On the first try this dude makes it look easy.
Pretty sure that if any NBA player did this during a dunk contest, it would be game-over.
My science teacher could barely get up out of his chair
When you give up your dream to get a stable job
This is Jonathan Clark who’s legitimately one of the best dunkers in the world dunk mixtape
The man stands tall
He flips no fall
He grab the ball
Grade A for all
Good job for the kid with the lob, I would've fucked that shit up lol
Great fucking dunk too...
that’s one of the coolest run-ups to a dunk I’ve ever seen
One time my science teacher slipped on a banana peel and broke their hip.
Original for better quality. I was super impressed when I saw that
School History Teacher: You think that is impressive? Watch me play with my stick and hoop!
Sign this man to the Knicks!
The last boy is like 'Wait, how did you do that?'
I mean that would win the NBA Dunk Contest. Right?
My high school calc teacher played basketball in college and then played overseas for a little while before moving back to the states. Dude is probably about 6’8 6’9. We had him dunk during a pep rally for a football game and he ended up shattering the damn backboard and everyone went nuts hahah. He felt bad of course but it was badass. I think he knew what he was doing
Well he certainly schooled them.
The fact that he did that so confidently with no second tries is even crazier
Mr.Jefferson's got hops! Last one looked like it was off a trampoline!
Pretty sure this guy was on that dunk contest tv show the "dunk king" or whatever. His signature was always doing flips before dunks.
Man we had a long-term substitute teacher at my elementary school (like 20 years ago) that would constantly do backflips and dunk cuz we always asked him to. He was super athletic. He actually looks exactly like this, I have to send this to my buddies.
This is almost certainly better than everything you will see at the dunk contest on all star weekend in the NBA.
That was so much more impressive than I figured after reading the title. Dude was a good foot above the rim. Crazy athleticism.
Looks like taco from OFWG
HE JUST WENT SUPER SAIYAN
Literally watching the Celtics basketball game right now and his commercial comes on right as I watch this on my phone!
Someone make this guy the new bill nye
He is too cool for school
Follow your dreams. Play basketball and do gymnastics - you too can be a teacher?
Very honorable of him to give up his job with the Harlem Globetrotters to educate some youths
I guess marlon wayans teaches science now?
This is better than most of the dunks in the NBA dunk contest...
There is some other teacher on that campus who hates that guy.
Ball so hard motherfuckers wanna Vine me
This is what the NBA slam dunk content needs!
Definitely taking someone home tonight!
Put this guy in the dunk contest this weekend.
Pretty sure he could grab the top of the backboard
For a big man, he’s got them fine moves
My science prof grunts when he stands up
Nice try Shawn Wayans.
I feel like this would actually get a good score in the NBA dunk contest since I’m sure most NBA players wouldn’t be able to do the cartwheel into back handstand flip thingy into an immediate catch and dunk.
Wasn’t expecting to see a gif from my hometown.
You tuck the tie you know it's on.
I faceplanted just thinking about attempting this
They all gone pay attention in this mf class now!
Props to the kids throwing the ball too. Perfectly timed.
One of the benefits of being a teacher, I have to assume, is feeling impressive among your trainees.
Jonathan Clark for anyone who wants to look up his stuff. He’s pretty incredible.
I gotta say, if I saw that guy dunk I wouldn't be surprised at all.
"Remember we studied gravity last week? Forgot to mention it doesn't apply to me."
That HANG TIME THO......
That fucking bounce
Better than any dunk competition I've ever seen
They need him on the Lakers bad
That kid with the assist has clearly seen this before. Timed that nearly perfect.
He just won the NBA dunk contest
Jonathan Clark is back! And teaching school apparently!
Please tell me he teaches physics.
Where you at Bounce kid?
This would win an NBA allstar dunk competition.
This is just reinforcing the stereotype that teachers really care about their students and want them to enjoy learning
Holy shit fully expected a trampoline there
double backflip = true;
Kept the tie on
This should be something done in the NBA dunk contest
Sorry for being "that guy" but that dude is not a teacher, he is J Clark the jumper, a professional dunker, he is 6'3 and jumps close to 43 inches, he even dunked in a 11'8 rim
Now we need an average Joe to attempt this so we can understand how hard this really is
This would legit contend at the Dunk contest
He’s one of the cool teachers
Dunking for your students
You know he's still that cool teacher. Who knows that he's changing the lives of all his students every single day. That won't last long.
It’s one thing to have been able to do that when you were younger. This guy ain’t no spring chicken
And he was never seen again. They say he drowned in teenage pussy.
Did did dude jus do dis.
Damn that was some athleticism right there
Dunking for your students
Those are some seriously underhanded methods to achieve good reviews. Bribery!
God I wish that were me
I don’t understand how the hosts would trust their pets with perfect strangers?! I’m too protective of my pets...
My dog always goes to the Airbnb house on our property first thing in the morning with a ball. 🤣
That is a superior hospitality professional.
Aw! I love AirBnB cats!
Staying at an airbnb and you don't lock your room while sleeping? That's brave
That’s the best way to wake up.
He was seeing if you were good eating
The cat is prettier than I'll ever be
Only 5? That kitty deserves twice the stars.
We have all been AirBnB-ing wrong!!!!! That the best thing ever
That is a cute ass kitten
Where’s the Airbnb? Asking for a friend
How to get good reviews
Sounds like the purrrrfect Airbnb 😍
Seems like an infallible 5-star feature alone!
Zuppa the dog had the run of the place at our Florence (Italy) rental. So much Italian fun!
You look fine 😉
Good turn out. I would have woke up sneezing and partially unable to breath.
Check your wallet.
Some people are lucky. My kitten just purrs right in my face and bites my fingers.
I'm allergic to most cats and dogs. This would slightly upset me.
That's not a kitten mate
Don't just sit there, kill him
One man's 5 star review is another man's allergic reaction.
That's how he got rich
You too can rent it, and at only $385 an hour (with a minimum of 10 hours, of course) it’s a steal!
Is that Adam Scott in the 4th? Obligatory calzone reference.
Batman should be careful about who he rents out to, the repair bill must have been massive after renting it out to these japanese guys.
Charged them a lot of money to film there I guess
I think lady Gaga rented it too for bad romance
“See guys there’s nothing under here.. I don’t have a bat cave.. it’s just for music videos..”
Because, unless you inherited, you understand that idle assets are losing money. So when he's not using this particular property he rents it out for $385 and hour for a minimum of 10 hours.
Can someone name these music videos because I recognize like one person here.
Edit: Keep 'em coming
he's just renting out for free
When you're rich, all the cool people will pay to hang at your place.
He is a connoisseur of music.
Is this a set on the universal studios lot???
The color tones are soooo satisfying
Also Red Sun Rising’s “Veins” last year.
I wonder how this happens — does the studio actively market the lot for videos? Is there a label connection where someone in A&R is like ‘I know a place we can shoot?’ Is this just where directors go when they have to get a project done and can’t think of a more original setting?
Cool work, OP.
Bruce Wayne is still a business man...
Wasn't it also used in that show Misfits?
Was this also used in Misfits? I know it was a BBC production but the place looks extremely similar.
And that one early episode of Bones when she flies to California for a case. (How do I still remember that?)
That's how he stays rich
I thought the Bat cave in the second movie was under Bruce Wayne's penthouse, not Wayne Manor, considering the masion was being rebuilt in that movie?
Would rent it alone and jerk off to every color the entire time.
But can you name all the bands?
That's how he stays rich!
It's actually Wayne Corp's garage/testing facility so when it's not in use they allow others to use it for what ever project they are on.
Who says he rents it out? Maybe billionaire playboy Bruce Wayne just likes to meet talented people.
Didn't they use the same layout in the tv show Chuck? or just maybe very similar?
how the rich stay richer
Top right who dat?
It's here, the real location https://petrolicious.com/articles/batman-s-garage-is-real-and-it-s-spectacular
Because the best way stay rich is to keep making money
Nigga gotta eat
As much as I love The Dark Knight, that garage/bunker/whatever it is has always felt a bit off. It’s literally just a square room where stuff pops out the floor.
How does he remember where he put stuff?
Wasn't he just renting it out while his mansion/batcave were being rebuilt?
You forgot Sevdaliza's Shamharan.
maybe he’s renting the garage for batman??
'Security? Who let Vicki Vale into the Batcave? I'm sitting there working; I turn around, there she is. Oh hi, Vick - come on in.'
That’s just a front so contractors don’t ask questions.
It’s his main source of income
Upvote for the meme, downvote for picollage
"we so rich... why we can't afford no ceilin"https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS5jqXWECbI
Looks like it was used in Super Junior's music video as well.
It’s one of his covers. If the facility is discovered he can claim that will.i.am. is Batman
He has a thing for up and coming artists. He is renting it out for free
Don't rich people typically rent space our for less rich people?
It’s a status thing
He's a record producer too ? Guy's loaded.
How the rich stay rich
Where is this?
What is the video with Adam Scott?!
Free personal concerts???
It's all part of the plan!
He is a business man, that's why he is so rich.
Upper when a nibbas talking mad shit.
Rich people get rich by never leaving money on the table. If there is an oppertunity for income, exploit it!
Rich people rent out their possessions all the time. Like parts of their estate. Their art to museums. Vehicles. Turning down what is essentially free money is an easy way to stay poor.
Why is Ben from Parks & Rec on Hoth?
The richest people on earth have multiple streams of income.
You don't get rich by NOT renting out your property.
It's called Disposable income.
Renting out this garage is WHY he is so rich!!
Gotham > New York > AOC > 70% tax rate for rich > Rich folks will have to rent out their stuff, drive uber/lyft to survive.
You gotta make money to stay rich
He doesn't rent it out. He doesn't even charge. He just likes having the musicians over to support the arts.
That’s how Bruce Wayne gets all of the best artists to play at his parties
I saw on it Airbnb plus, it's an event space and "it sleeps all your friends!"
How do you think he got rich. Multiple streams of income baby🤪
I know right?
That’s not his real garage! That’s just another space Bruce Wayne owns which he rented out to the movie company when they made his biopic, alongside all the other people.
He obviously keeps his real garage secret.
It's a brilliant cover to explain all the equipment, electronics, costumes, and soundproofing.
Fake news perpetrated by the Joker.
That does look like a really cool room. You could have lot of fun with that if each square uses RGB lighting and can act as a pixel so that each one is addressable.
Cash flow is king.
Lol look it's the Ice Clown, Ben Wyatt.
They use it in Misfits too
The best place to hide is in plain sight. If everybody associates that space with music videos, nobody would think of it as being a remote bat cave.
It's just a front to launder his matte black market money
It's also JDs room in grandmas boy, no?
That Logic song is pretty sweet though.
real estate bro.. its called passive income
Jake Paul, too
Maybe he's renting it too?
When he hangs upside-down like a bat he can use the roof as a Saturday night fever disco dance floor.
I've literally had a dream that I was playing here. That's how common thos setting must be.
Didn't he lend it out to some anime characters fighting for the holy grail too?
Technically Batman isn't rich. Bruce Wayne is technically the rich one.
Those are private live shows that someone captured with their phone.
Yes, they are better than actual produced music videos.
Lucius Fox has a side hustle when Mr. Wayne isn't around.
No the question is why can't people use different setting for their videos? #SOoriginal
LUL you do know that Batman is a fictional character? The movie is made on a sound stage and to cut costs they rent it out to other fictional productions long after the movie is finished shooting.
Some men just want to watch the world boogie
Man thats actually really heart warming to see
I wonder what the overall success rate is for people doing their first one
Skaters are some of the most inclusive, heartwarming, friendly people I've ever met.
Nice bros. Kid did good getting the weight forward too.
Well done little buddy!🤚🏽
It makes me happy to see we are not always mean, self-centered assholes to each other and that humanity still has selfless, caring and compassionate people out there.
Well done boys.
I love the skateboard community. It's so fucking supportive.
He could wear a helmet though.
Is that the "south" park in Gent, Belgium ?
My friend was too scared to drop in and kept bailing, he really wanted to do it but just couldn’t make himself commit. He told me if he bailed 3 more tries I have to kick him in the balls... So I ended up kicking him in the balls lol, he did it later that night tho. Not as heartwarming as this I guess
Are all skaters this supportive?
That is awesome. Seeing a group who encourage and cheer for each other.
It was always striking in the X-games when they would mob guys who it big tricks.
I remember seeing TH hit that first 900 and all the guys went bananas.
Great to see it in the roots and beginning of the journey as well.
Love this:) another skater is hooked.
This made my day. People forget that skating is about fun and community. Huge props to these peeps keeping the dream within reach for that kid.
If you’re having fun, you’ve already one.
The hoodie guy was so ready. He’s the MVP, future great dad material
I always found skaters at skateparks were encouraging, from not dropping into the same pipe you are on, to banging their boards on the pipe to show appreciation for a successful trick you did, quite wholesome on the average.
The skateboarding community has gotten so wholesome, really nice to see.
Man I remember my first drop in :’) I didn’t have nearly that many people cheering me on but it sure felt just as satisfying
Man I wish someone encouraged me like this! To this day I still can’t drop in 😪
I remember my first drop in attempt - landed on my ass and thought my butthole ripped open. Fortunately it did not, but it hurt like a mother.
Spent my formative years at a 6ft halfpipe the city built in the 90s, can confirm this happens regularly.
Realized I’m more akin to these kids’ parents when my first thought was “wow that’s nice and all but he really should be wearing a helmet”
I love how supportive the skating community is. Always felt like a street family to me.
It’s so good to see such great teamwork. Cudos to all of you.
Lol the dude in the blue clapping and nodding like a proud coach.
Seriously though, where's everybody buying these invisible helmets?
Man I used to skate for so many years, sad I dropped out of it though I can still land a mean kickflip any day. But a the first drop for a skater is a big deal for those who don't realise :D
Dropping in is one of the toughest things to learn in skating. It is genuinely a huge milestone when you learn it.
Belongs in /r/wholesomegifs
That’s awesome! Very heart warming to watch! :)
No helmet...real genius move.
Dude that is some terrifying shit the first time. Most skaters are great people.
That was so nice,this is the proof that finding a nice hobby can get to meeting good people and help you grow nicely as a kid
Yeah! Go Sunburn!
No helmet, just a bunch of dudes ready to maybe somehow catch him
Damn, put this in r/wholesomememes
That moment is so unexpectedly terrifying for almost everyone, even if the 1/4 pipe is really short. Dropping in the first time adds 5 feet at least to the perceived height.
Wow, look how good they all are with him, so supportive. That's really nice to see
First (and only) time I did this i broke my fucking wrist
Absolutely r/mademesmile :)
Made me tear up..
Are we sure? Cus he already dresses like he straight shreds.
All those people there for support and not one says "wear a helmet and some pads."
A helmet would be even more wholesome
I’m so glad he didn’t fall, I really wanted the wholesomeness
“Here man now you’re ready for the real big boy stuff” hands kid loosely rolled skateboard park joint
I can't tell if he's wearing a helmet or not
I was nervous when my son said he wanted to start skating (at age 8). We took him to the local skate park and everyone just looked so “bad”. Well, that was a lesson in why prejudice is so horrible- those kids were SO kind to my son. They encouraged him, waved it off when he cut them off by accident, chased after his board for him when he fell, and cheered when he went down the tiniest little slope without falling for the first time. Honestly they were some of the kindest people I’ve ever seen...and they taught me never to judge a book by its cover.
I spotted a dog at the end! Do I get a treat?
This only works with green dogs
How about just the dogs now. Just a bunch of dogs sitting for no reason, running around, 'posing'.
I actually thought for a second this was an actual event and not edited. God help me.

2019 Westminster Posh People Hurrying a Little While Being Distracted By Something Show
If you wait until the lady in the white coat finishes running, you can see a dog. It's a real good one.
These people need their pills
I like snls version better https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2S2gQjTURvU
Me @ my imaginary friends
Mr. Bean did it better with a stuffed bear.
Can someone key the green floor so it’s lava?
Ah yes, the "Running while glancing downwards" Show.
Ah yes ladies and gentleman.. welcome back to the 2019 Westminster Schizophrenic Dog Show..
I didn't know I needed this until now.
Can some edit in cats instead of dogs
Without the dogs, this looks like some of the resolutioners on the treadmill at the gym in January.
I think it adds to the effect that you can still see their shadows.
Or is this a long-term care facility and we're seeing the Alzheimer's patients aimlessly wondering around?
I feel uneasy
These dogs have some damn good camouflage
Ah yes, ghost dogs.
Well obviously the dogs are added in later using CGI.
Now put something in place of the dogs, like Stitch, or Tribbles.
Garfield without Garfield: Odie edition
Tbf at least as entertaining as the show with dogs.
I love this.
This seems like a great idea for a sequel to that one Thanksgiving episode of Brooklynn Nine Nine where Holt and Pimento were really into the dog show
Didnt know Claudio Raneri walked dogs too
This was the Peter Jackson dog show, the CGI dogs will be added in once filming is done.
They had this on in a bar I went to last night for some unknown reason. After some drinks, I was watching the old dude who grabs the dogs' crotches and thought to myself, "Has anyone else on Earth grabbed more dog crotch than this guy?"
I watch this last night. Did they always had that in stadium announcer? I found him annoying vs what USA did.
The leftovers after the Cat-ture
Somebody should report that second guy for slipping his dog some invisible beef jerky.
This is beautiful!
This is so stupid...
I want to see more of it.
When the bus pulls in too quick and you're not sure if it's gonna stop
Can this type of event just die off already?
I guess those dog treats are fit for human consumption.
Give them spoons and add an egg on top.
A nice air jab from the first guy.
Someone should shop in kids on leashes
I would watch an entire video of this
This is why the floor was made green people
It's missing all the ball fondling, which could be hilarious without the dog.
Christ these people are weird.
"Imaginary dogs show" or "Dog show in a psych ward"
Dog at the end of the video, unwatchable 0/10
I want to see the agility trials without the dogs.
Dog sighting: 3-4 Seconds, and 14-15 seconds.
Not as good as Garfield without Garfield but still pretty good...5/7.
Reminds me of similar 'invisible opponent' edits in boxing and MMA. Takes a ton of work in Adobe AfterEffect.
I can’t with this lol
Our sense of reality is on the brink. Stuff like this is going to be our downfall.
I was at the agility portion this weekend and they actually have an allotted time for handler practice and it looks essentially just like this lol. It was really bizarre seeing them go through the course intensely all while signaling at the air.
It kind of looks like if they didn't have dogs to consume their entire lives they would be serial killers.
Very exited hitchhikers
I didn't read the title so I was waiting for the dogs to appear...
How does this work? Do you have yo go frame by frame and Photoshop them out or is there an easy tool? Just curious
Looks like this is the only exercise some of these people get all year.
I saw that dog sneak in at the end
Ah yes, the famous Westminster Human Show!
Am I the only one that would rather see this with only dogs?
i hope that this gif is all that is left of our great culture in 10000 years
Someone needs to do a real life doodle to this
Lol, this deserves way more upvotes...original and genuinely funny
I like dogs. I like cats. I like animals.
But there's something about dog shows and the people that attend them that I want to punch them all in the face.
I enjoy the above gif IMMENSELY
This is R U F F
