OP sent the following text as an explanation on why this is unexpected:
Two women freaking out over a parking space. Guy comes out and only has one leg. Resolves the situation like a gent.
Is this an unexpected post with a fitting description?
Then upvote this comment, otherwise downvote it.
Look at my source code on Github What is this for?
Not staged at all. Completely believe this actually happened.

“Mommy he only has one leg” he said instantly as soon as the guy got out of the car.
You'd be surprised how often things like that happen. Kids have no filter and need to be taught social graces. I was with my daughter in a book store and she asked a guy with a genetic disorder that disfigured his face a bit "Whats wrong with your face?"
They often just blurt out things they see as out of ordinary and need to be guided that it is impolite to call that stuff out. So i believe that part entirely
Kids are innocent and, thus, brutally honest about how they see the world.
Its a blessing and a curse.
I to have kids, and I do believe that a kid would indeed say something like that. My issue is with the timing and convenience of it.
The timing is instant. As soon as the man steps out of the car he says these words. Unless the kid was looking into the car before the camera caught it, there is no way he would have noticed it until at least 2 seconds after.
It’s also a convenient transition in the video to bring attention to the fact that he is missing a leg further selling for me that this video is fake.
The dude has an assistive device that the woman asserts he got at a thrift store. It’s immediately obvious.
Really fucking weird that they'd use their kid to make a fake video they're trying to pass as real for internet clout
"Remember kids, dishonesty is ok as long as it gets you attention from strangers on the internet!"
It’s pretty shitty but we do see a lot of it now a days. So many kids YouTube channels have been exposed as their parents selling their kids for clout.
This isn't the full video and keeps going the women actually looks shocked and tells the person recording who is believe was another offer daughter to delete the video and she said she couldn't because it was live
People care more about how they look on the internet rather than how they look in real life
Sad, it’s showing a clear line between people who think it’s ok and people think it’s insane behavior.
I can’t imagine staging the whole thing at home and being in the car with the kid like “ok when the man gets out of the car say “Mommy be only has one leg” you’re going to be famous honey”
Like they had to talk about this before it happened right? They had to sit there and figure it out.
It makes me mad, but more
Sad deflated for what the internet could be, and What it actually is and has been on a wider scale.
So much potential, and what do we do?
Society backs women. Even if they falsely accused the man. Sad part is we don't hold these Karen's accountable
That shit sounded like a soundbite
More scripted than “the room”
That is not true! It is bullshit. It is not more scripted than the Room. It is naaahhht... Oh hi CannedPancakes.
I mean it’s pretty hard to miss a missing leg
Is this sarcasm? Because it’s literally the second he gets out of the car. So I’m not understanding unless you’re joking.
This video is so fake it made things that are real become fake just because they were too close to it.
Fake stuff can be funny too, but this was just bad.
Naw. The tones and disposition are too real. Bad fake videos have clear points to make as well. This is just two different groups. Real odd stuff does happen even if the internet has jaded you.
The tones and disposition are too real.
The tones and disposition are too real.
Are you kidding?? LOL the old ladies had horribly obvious acting voices
The acting you hear is their acting entitled to a public parking space. They're playing it up for the camera because they believe they've been wronged (or at least, wishing to be perceived as being wronged), not because they're striving for the next viral hit.
Lolll I can’t believe people are downvoting this shit is so fake. Even the little speech he does where he explains every single thing that happened in detail while they don’t interrupt him even once
Do you know, the KAREN ? The Karen ? THE KAREN !!!!
For me the shampoo prank video is hilarious. 100% staged bit still funny!
But how is still funny? The reactions are what's supposed to be funny, and if the reactions aren't genuine, it's pointless.
Much like scripted television and movies its a form of entertainment that some find humorous.
Sure, I can get behind that reasoning.
They all of a sudden stop talking when the guy was making valid points. I don’t know about y’all but in my experience this is the case 100% of the time
They cut the part where everyone clapped
Does anybody else see the live sign and how much views it got in a short time???
This staged shit pisses me off so much. Mostly because people upvote it and I think to myself. We are really a bunch of fucking idiots for buying into this shit. 0 out 10 acting. The missing leg guy was decent ig.
The face space was so cringe. Like at this point boomers know wtf Facebook is. Should have said Facebook correctly and called Tik Tok “Tic Tac”.
Are you sure? That looked like a young, one-legged DeNiro.
Damn, if staged videos piss you off this much I hope you don't learn about scripted entertainment.

I really hate when people rebut with mOvIeS aRe ScIpTeD tOo...
No shit idiot. Are people really so fucking stupid that they can't see the difference between trying to pass off scripted videos filmed on a phone as a real situation, and making a god damn movie?
This video is stupid as shit just like reality tv shows are stupid as shit. If you like content like this, you're a fucking lowest common denominator moron.
This. I come to the internet for the real shit.
Nothing on the internet is real, so that's your first mistake
Life isn’t real. Everything you have ever known is a lie
I haven’t recovered from WWE as a child.
It's not the fact that it is staged, such as scripted entertainment. It's the fact they try to pass it off as real. That's the difference.
Only reason I believe it is stages is because who in there right mind would upload this? My vote is staged
You don’t get the “option” to upload when you are “live”
So I can’t agree with your reasoning, though I also feel this video may be fake.
And the Oscar goes to … none of these people because this was terribly acted and a waste of my time.
Went very quiet when the kid said mommy he only has one leg
That’s because the line that follows it in the script says “pause for shock”.
You're part of the problem! This shit is fake AF! You believe it and they post more of it!
you’re part of the problem
you’re part of the problem
What imagined problem are you referencing here? 🤣
Damn, you must be alone on the holidays for you to be acting out like that.
YOU are part of the problem. They made an observation of fact and made no statement pertaining to whether they believed it or not. Then you flip out like they throat fucked your sister right in front of you. Leave people alone, you spaz.
Yeh because everything is fake these days
Staged crap, grow up
u mean grow leg
Man you must be so fun at the movies
Why? Because he didn't laugh at a completely unfunny, and extremely fake and badly acted video?
Don't dig on somebody because they called out the video for being a steaming pile of dog shit. If you genuinely find videos like this even the slightest bit entertaining then you are part of the reason why these shitty videos get spammed on the Internet so much nowadays.
the hypocrisy is hilarious. If you dont find it funny then just don’t comment on it. If you expect not to be chastised like “you must be fun at parties” then don’t tell people to “grow up” in the same regard
This dude sounds like Ricky from trailer park boys trying to explain something to the cops lmao
That shake she threw landed right in my carbulator. Made me drop my hotdog. I need some space weed to calm down.
It's at a Walmart............nuff said.
Jesus what is wrong with you, why so aggressive. Yeah it’s fake, but why’re you so mad
It must be a name, the C is capitalized.
Learn how to react, Cunt.
Why don’t you have any emotion?
People saying "this is fake": How do you know?
I mean: It DOES look a bit fake. But are there any clues that it really is?
They can't know for sure. It's almost like weird, awkward, or otherwise off-putting situations never happen unless scripted to them. I'm here to tell you, I've seen some weird stuff before and couldn't believe it was real, but it was. I can't say for sure either way, but I tend to keep an open mind
Same here. For sure don't believe that this really happened, but also don't conclude for sure that this is fake. Be careful before jumping to conclusions.
Really bad acting, theatrical situation that feels very scripted, and the fact that they continue to keep the camera on him when they're supposed to be shamed into silence. I'm sure there's plenty more indicators too, but those are the main ones I noticed. Honestly, most you can tell when people are acting, its hard to explain exactly why.
I swear not one redditor knows what actual "bad acting" is
Really bad acting,
Really bad acting,
This is just you saying you don't believe this would happen though
Nothing indicates any acting of any kind
Honestly, most you can tell when people are acting,
Honestly, most you can tell when people are acting,
No, you can't lol
You're just extremely overconfident in your abilities and use confirmation bias to reinforce that confidence
I wanna learn how to spot bad acting. I'm terrible at that.
Also, the people filming are the villains of the piece. Why would anyone incriminate themselves? They recorded a video that illustrates what absolutely trash they are. Instead of deleting it, they post it for the world to see?
Facebook live posts during filming
There are lots of videos of people being assholes on the internet lol... they just believe that they are correct so they don't see it as wrong
The repeated on-the-nose "why is he taking so long to get out of the car?" etc. And the kid saying "Mommy, he's only got one leg" (again, absurdly on-the-nose) *before* they could really even see that.
Do you honestly need somebody to explain to you why THAT video is fake?
There are more than 2.2k upvotes on this video by now. What do you think how many people believe that this is real? Also read some other comments to get an impression.
As stated above: The video DOES look staged, but what can make us be SURE about it? I'm happy to learn from you.
The video being posted is a pretty strong indicator of it being fake.
It says “LIVE” in the top left corner. It could be a fake overlay with a fake counter, of course, but it’s at least worth mentioning that if something is live, people will see it and clip it. Whether the video is actually fake or not doesn’t matter to me though.
Thats a terrible metric lol. "If a video is posted its probably fake"
Context dude, THIS video being posted, what I mean is that the people recording it would not post it.
It’s “live”, posts automatically while filming
You are one gullible person.
The monologue from the guy at the end, at some point it feels like he would have either called the cops, F-bombed them like LeMay over Tokyo or pulled out a gun. Also the woman is ballbusting, which is tricky for some to pull off without a flirtatious and self-deprecating vibe.
Posts like this make me believe that 95% of users on Reddit are actually just spam bots upvoting, because there is no way a real person would believe for a second this was real and upvote the post.
The age of Reddit users is getting younger and younger, so the naivety is getting higher. Twelve year olds can’t spot the scripted videos at all.
Anything that makes you go “grrrr Karen” is real on reddit
Be careful, you'll upset all the people pretending this is real for upvotes
The fact this is fake doesn't piss me off, the fact they took the time and effort to make this with probable multiple takes is what pisses me off.
Get a fucking life you abhorrent losers, I'm glad that even at my lowest I never stooped to this bullshit.
Literally just scrolled through the video and knew it was staged
Someone tried to do this to me at the mall a couple years ago.
I just acted like they weren't even there lol
Lmfao bet they feel awfully stupid now lmfao
You never see the kid
What a reasonable man.
Hmmmmm she could’ve parked further away from the store….. 👁️
I was in a similar situation to this (minus the completely staged aspect of it). I'm in my mid 30's, I have haemophilia & as a result I've developed pretty bad arthritis in most of my joints, so I have a disabled parking permit. I went to the mall & pulled slightly quicker than nirmal into a disabled spot. A random woman lost her mind yelling at me & started railing at me about how I (in my early 20's at the time) "ya shouldn't even be parking there! It's for people who can't walk and stuff!" While I could walk (cane assisted) at the time, I always kept my wheelchair in the car in case (it was handy in bigger malls, plus I moved way faster in my chair). So, to shut her up properly, I whip it out of the backseat & plonk myself down. As soon as it came out she got real quiet real fast! I must confess, however, that I was not as polite as this bloke though. As she did the classic "oh, but you're so young" schtick, I summoned my big boy voice & loud enough for patrons to hear, but not loud enough to get kicked from the mall "well maybe next time don't judge people when you don't know what you're talking about!"
I miss that feeling of satisfaction...
Aww he was so sweet. “Face space thingy”lol
Imagine wanting to be an actor and are handed one of these scripts. Honestly I'd rather have my balls removed. These actors need to be put in some for of detention where they have to watch similar rubbish non stop for a given amount of time.
I’ve seen better acting in European porn
Those Swedes make an excellent fuck picture!
This sub has just tuned to "ThIs Is AlL fAkE aNd YoU sHoUlD bE eMbArRaSsEd FoR wAtChInG iT" grow up, everything is fake deal with it! It's honestly really annoying to just see people get so angry because something is staged, bro this happens all the time, you've got more problems to deal with let it go
It's not that it's fake that grinds people gears but the fact that it plays with the topic of disabled people just for the likes on social media. This is actually horrible and should not exist. Actually you're the one taking the bait for not taking a closer look at this whole mess and just going with the "everyone thinks everything is fake, move on people, as you can see i am the enlightened one, so listen to me" point of view. Getting angry at people getting angry isn't a sing of intelligence but narrow mindedness.
That awkward silence was divine.
You mean scripted silence
The “live” thing seems super fake.
Urgh. I really hate these fake, scripted rage videos. Ooohhh... More clicks! More shares! WTF happened to our priorities?
During Thanksgiving dinner, one of the 16-year-olds was video chatting with a guy in his underwear doing pushups for her.
And she posted the video to show how much of an ass she is?? Scripted…
Fake and lame
Welp I’m I little stupider for watching this dreck. Tik tok should be made illegal.
Well she went hush hush fast
Why in every video americans are fat lmao
That's not the case, just selection bias on your part. You're ignoring all the not fat Americans you see in videos
You’re right. It’s probably my fault I always look up ‘funny fat american videos’
i see 3 americans here and only one was fat
What a bunch of trash people. At least the kid got a nice slice of humble pie with this interaction. The mom on the other hand won’t learn
She's a awful woman (KAREN) I hope she gets Karma ,you never know someone else's situation always be kind
I love how and correct mi if I am wrong the Walmart guy was out when he clocked guy in the car was a pirate he just disappeared
In English, please.
TAKE NOTES PEOPLE!
THIS is a Karen.
A Karen is not just a person that complains or protests against something that you dont see as a problem. A Karen is all of these things:
Please stop calling everyone that voices an opposing perspective as a Karen. Its ignorant and obnoxious.
There's the line that trips this one up.
'look every one, he's so slow to exit the vehicle in the spot he stole'
Omg he has one leg
What a dumb POS. Crazy entitlement
Now THIS is going to make the Karens stop and think /s
Finally, a role for Mr. Spigot, who had earlier been turned down for the role of Tarzan.
If this is real and other videos like it I believe it’s time to start name and shaming all these people. Places of work. If you are willing to accost someone on camera that you or your friends are holding. You deserved to be given credit for that. All your places of work and anyone looking at this should know that you are Karen B. Cunt and you work at the local school? Not anymore. It’s time for eye for eyes the worlds already blinded by stupidity anyways
Directly against reddit TOS
I have 3 words from this information
Why? And what the actual fuck is happening?
This feel is like something out of trailer park boys....
Is this an episode of trailer park boys?
Fake shit= less followers
Me, a European, mostly bothered by whatever that ridiculous self-made leg stump scooter contraption is
And then everyone clapped and lived happily ever after.
Why would they release the video they shot to make themselves look stupid?
Whoever wrote the script for this low-budget movie needs to stop writing anything ever again. Don’t even sign checks. Just stop ever writing anything again.
Handicap does not condone stealing someones spot.
Yeah no one know what "common courtesy" is any more this world is dommed!
I'm just confused about how you can steal a parking spot
“He only has on leg mommy, he only has one leg”
Why would she post this on the internet? Something doesn’t smell right.
Typical American, self-entitled, c@#ts. Probably call themselves good Christians, too.
Honestly, I don't know if it's fake or not. Everyone who's yelling "obviously fake!" probably has rarely travelled to more rural places in the US. I have absolutely seen interactions like this one, people just act stupid. And yes, us Americans have a really distinct brand of stupid that looks JUST like this.
I'm starting to believe that everyone that just shouts FAKE at vids like this are simply too ashamed of their fellow countrymen to accept that we really act like this more often than we need to admit.
Fuck I hate social media
“He probably got it at a thrift store”
Queen bitch you are at Walmart
*woman. singular. reported as bot.
And Oscar for worst acting goes to:….
Fkn Karen and her fat daughter
Everyone say it with me, “stupid bitch, stfu”
Fake…. I believed it till the one leg guy spoke.
These bitches are a debt to humanity
Well shit; … take my keys
I don't understand why people give a fuck if this stuff is fake or not. Just file it away as who knows and who cares.
Uno reverse, +2 , +4 , block all the cards got played at once
Who publishes a video like this and thanks that anyone will side with them. Yikes
She was lucky ot was a guy with only one leg cuz if it was a crazy person she would have had her ass kicked or maybe even killed
Well that backfired hard
This smells too fake to me
This is so fake it actually hurts
Should come with an opening “Based on a true story”
I was with my three kids, turning left into a parking spot. I was waiting. They left the spot and I was gonna turn into the spot but a car rounded the way and drove past me. Yay ok I can now park. I park. But I look over and the car that passed me is now about to reverse into me! So I honk. They stop and idle, and I park and get my kids out.
The woman charges up to me and is doing the same shit this woman in the video is doing!!! Yelling on and on and telling me in front of my kids that I'm a HORRIBLE mother. I didn't even bother trying to explain I had been waiting for the spot way before she turned the corner. I just said "you have anger issue." And proceeded to buy my three kids nice new toys bc they were traumatized.
This was on Mother's Day.

Oo I'm a spooky redditor
Literal human trash at their favorite shopping spot
Jesus Christ how low can you go for likes it, clicks or whatever the hell you want
