We noticed this technique on the slick original GIF blog GIF Movie. So we copied it! Because this should be a whole new genre.
Fake Louie Episodes is formulaic, sure, but cute. Nicely parodies the mixture of sentimentality, backhanded self-celebration, and bathos that somehow combine to make Louie a masterpiece.
Louie slips on ice and becomes paralyzed from the waist down. Tries and fails to regain use of his legs. Solves a riddle.

Louie’s Amtrak car has a broken air conditioner. Gives an inspirational speech to stop angry passengers from rioting. Meets the pope.

I hacked Louis C.K.‘s email and, whoof, you would not believe what he’s been doing behind the scenes.
From: Louis C.K.
To: Those who might wish to shoplift from stores
look, I don’t really get the whole “theft” thing. I don’t know enough about it to judge either way. But I’d just like you to consider this: If you steal stuff because you can’t afford it, you’re making everyone else pay more for that thing, because the store owner has to jack up the prices to make up for what you took.
And in the week since he wrote that, shoplifting has gone down 80%.
