In Poland, People Are Roleplaying as Americans, Here Are The Best Photos

In Poland, there is a LARP group @4thofJulyLarp that roleplays as contemporary Americans. They just come together and show off their most American-ish outfits and act out various scenarios that they imagine would happen in the USA. It’s brilliant. Real Americans, please let us know in the comments if they got it right!

  1. Well. . . Most of the flags are backward or inside down. The rest, well, I mean. . . It could be somewhere in the States at any given moment.

  2. Nicely done, however, missing some content. Mostly Southern/hillbilly scenarios. No people of color getting hammered by cops. No looting. No homeless encampments. And…no liberal stereotypes to skewer?

  3. Well done. I’d say nailed the attitudes, etc. Maybe more junk spread around. The lawns here are a bit pristine. Thicker steaks. More guns. More excess.

  4. No self respecting southern redneck would carry an purse with the Yankee’s logo. A noticeable lack of flip flops and boots. Plaid shirt guy standing with the cop was the best.

  5. The meth cooker had me rolling, is that what the world sees, lol. Its interesting to get an outside perspective of us.

  6. Where are the transgender weirdos? No folks wearing tshirts with their pronouns on display? No one wearing 8 masks? Tattoos proudly displaying the date and batch number of their shots? Oh, this is just stereotypical (non-racist) nonsense against only white hillbilly types? They must think represents the United States because they’re indoctrinated by main stream news that keeps pushing a false narrative white nationalism is the scourge and pretend boogey man of the country, got it.

  7. This is so very close to how our southern PWT look. A few observations:

    1. As Chloe mentioned: You won’t find Yankee gear in the south.

    2. The *guy* on the couch has the black eye?

    3. Southern rednecks don’t have “F*#% the Police” signs. That’s typically inner city.

    4. Whether intentional or not, the lack of higher ed stuff is spot on.

    5. No MAGA stuff? Was this done in 2014?

    6. Not one Busch Light?

  8. They not acting out cops shooting/harassing black people so I’mma give them 3/10 for realism.

  9. The fact these images are hitting home is because it’s pointing out how people across the world perceive us. Commenters many want to think about that before chastising the photos. It means this is what the world thinks of all of us in the USA.

  10. The meth pic, the two getting ready for a domestic violence scene, and the guy and the cop, plaid shirt, great! Guns are everywhere, but the sign that has “ME” in America darker pretty much nailed it. Definitely reminds me of Central Florida, USA! They are LARPING, so there may have been rules about the gender stuff, but for just LARP, I think they got it right. They may not have been able to do city scenes due to location. Good job guys!

  11. I guess they’re going for the trashy redneck America? What kind of television are they getting over there?

  12. The signs are spelled correctly and use grammar I can understand. The lose authenticity points for that.

  13. The accuracy is 90 – 100%. So from that standpoint, a good representation. It is very sad, as a citizen of the US, though, to see another country pick the WORST representatives of America. What about the every day heros? (instead of the villans and trailer trash?). I don’t understand why the “bad guys” hold so much attraction for people.

  14. They hate socialism as much as industrialists and financiers but live paycheck to paycheck if they can even find work.

  15. This is an accurate description of the Trumpy MAGA bumpkins, but not of most Americans. This is a very Southern undereducated redneck culture depiction. So 4/10 for nailing what at least some of the country would look like.

  16. This depicts America’s lowest common denominators. Accurate enough, although there would be far more misspellings on the signs.

  17. As already said, this is obviously an attempt at rural America, and red states like Texas. They should just keep in mind that there are millions and millions of us on the East Coast and West Coast that have never been to these “flyover” states and never will. Which is not to say they are not pockets of rednecks all over, one assumes.
    Here’s what you need to add: MORE MCDONALD’S bags, and more shit fast food, rather than just Coca Cola and BBQing. Most of America is obese. Uncomfortably, embarassingly obese, and seemingly unconcerned. These thin, lavender-haired hipster gals are dressing “cutsey Americana” and look better than who they are emulating. Throw on some crappier, cheap-ass walmart Uggs, flip flops, and look like you are busting out of your ugly-ass acid-washed jeans, Affliction brand tee shirts, and tacky mortocycle-enthusiast clothes. Oh wait, but then they couldn’t look cutsey anymore? Best pack on the processed food before the next LARPing turbo dork campfire day!
    Bonus realness: long tobacco stained beards and missing a few teeth in the front – men and women both sport this look, so go for it!
    I’d much rather visit Europe (and I have, many times, than go to where this part of America actually exists.)

  18. Yeah, for the Deep South, you also want the Confederate Flag waving as well. More American Baseball or Football teams showing.

  19. Like it or not (a few details aside), this is how most of the rest of the world sees us. And why is the hillbilly redneck portrayal the most predominant outside view? Because they are the loudest. And Donald Trump made them even louder. This is what four years of nationalism gets you…

  20. The lack of melanin has to do with the demographics of Poland. The absence of the rest of American is due to how loud and obnoxious the folks being roasted are. It’s wild that MAGA is broadcasting to the world louder that Hollywood.

  21. Good overall, but needs improvement on the following:

    No cops shooting anybody.

    No “thoughts & prayers” under a pile of flowers after a mass shooting for which nothing will be down.

    Yankees fan out of place. They’d be drunk and obnoxious elsewhere.

    These folks would have Trump flags all over the place, though it heartens me that they may be difficult to find in the rest of the world

    I give it an A- LOL

  22. Well, this represents the red state, redneck, hillbillies. Not the majority of Americans…so sad that this is how they think we live. There are many, many more of us that don’t live this parody of a Netflix tv show lifestyle…

  23. To AK, I guess you fail to understand that transgendered people are everywhere, all over the world. Perhaps the real problem is you.

  24. They should be sitting around in front of a TV watching Greg Gutfeld on FOX news actively promoting rapid brain cell death.

  25. It’s a fairly accurate depiction of a stereotype. Each region has its stereotypes. Inner city thugs and welfare queens. Trailer trash. Mama’s basement hipsters. The perpetual predatory social victim. The golfing and mimosa crowd. We have it all!

  26. SPOT ON……..find it hard to believe its not in america……thought it was florida actually

  27. Sorry, I can tell this isn’t in the U.S. But I also knew it wasn’t when I started looking. But if I didn’t know I’d be wondering where this was because it still looks of to me.

  28. Right-wing politicians need to see this. They’ve been working hard to keep their constituents as uneducated as possible and this is the result. The entire world now looks upon the USA as a collection of inbred mongrels.

  29. Nailed it!
    Although, the girl with the orange shirt amd the NY purse/bag…no.
    These Americans being portrayed here do not go anywhere…they don’t travel outside of their communities, one ofnthe main reasons why they are so ignorant.

  30. Európából nem ilyen ‘lazának’ -egyik napról a másikra élő- emberek halmazának látom az USA állampolgárait. De nagyon befolyásolhatók, megtéveszthetők, ‘utcára vihetők’ az ‘átlag’ emberek. A tisztességes, dolgozó, gondolkozó emberek nem jelentek meg a bemutatott képeken. Pedig vannak olyanok is. Összességében azt mondhatom, hogy az utóbbi 3-4 évtizedben kedvezőtlenül változott a véleményem a korábban általam nagyra tartott Államokról, mely vezetői mindenek felettinek képzelik magukat. Innen fognak nagyon csalódni… Különösen a ma minden ‘propagandát’ elfogadó emberek…
