Back at $COMPANY we had an internal meme-site. I had some reputation in my team for creating good memes. When I watched Episode 3 of Season 2 from Yes Premier Minister yesterday, I really missed a place to post memes.
This is the full scene. Please watch it or even the full episode before scrolling down to the GIFs. I had a good laugh for some time.
With Debian, I could just download the episode from somewhere on the net with youtube-dl and easily create two GIFs using ffmpeg, with and without subtitle:
ffmpeg -ss 0:5:59.600 -to 0:6:11.150 -i Downloads/Yes.Prime.Minister.S02E03-1254485068289.mp4 tmp/tragic.gif ffmpeg -ss 0:5:59.600 -to 0:6:11.150 -i Downloads/Yes.Prime.Minister.S02E03-1254485068289.mp4 \ -vf "subtitles=tmp/sub.srt:force_style='Fontsize=60'" tmp/tragic_with_subtitle.gif
And this sub.srt file:
1 00:00:10,000 --> 00:00:12,000 Tragic.
I believe, one needs to install the libavfilter-extra variant to burn the subtitle in the GIF.
The Premier Minister just learned, that his predecessor, who was about to publish embarassing memories, died of a sudden heart attack:
I can’t actually think of a meme with this GIF, that the internal
thought police community moderation would not immediately take down.
For a moment I thought that it would be fun to have a Meme-Site for Debian members. But it is probably not the right time for this.
Maybe somebody likes the above GIFs though and wants to use them somewhere.
