Although he’s blaming an episode of schizophrenia, I want to believe that Thamsanqa Jantjie is a world class troll. This guy went on stage during the Nelson Mandela memorial and faked his way through being able to sign language. Instead of a legit interpretation, he was reportedly just making random movements.

Look below for 9 animates pictures of Thamsanqa Jantjie as he’s trying to fake it until he made it. The fake interpreter GIFs are hilarious with what we now know.

Personally, it didn’t strike me as odd when watching it live. He was believable enough with his sign language. Was he trolling? Was it a product of mental illness? Was he under qualified? We may never know.

In the meantime, check out these images. Be sure you hit the right arrow to view the whole funny gallery:
