Grand Theft Auto 5 has been a modding wonderland on PC for many years now, so you would think that fans would eventually run out of things to add to the game. At the very least, you might think that fans will eventually get bored of trying to reinvent Los Santos. But instead, what happened is that the bar for modding has become higher – tinkerers have to work harder to stand out from the sea of existing mods that add almost every pop culture icon under the sun to RPGs for the open world.
Maybe that’s why at the end of December pictures were taken of a mod that inserts Cell from Dragon Ball Z into GTA 5story mode exploded on social media. Many fans wondered about the modern GTA 5 mods is not content with just cosmetic changes, and instead also adds tailored speech lines to make scenes work with the new characters.
Since then, there has been an increase in videos showing mods that reinvent the scene above, where Lamar twists Franklin to be ugly. For example, here is YouTube user Daymon’s rendering of the roast, rendered as if it were a scene from a Japanese role-playing game Person 5.
It’s gone beyond TV series or video games – you can also see movie characters, like Scarface, tell Franklin now.
Or maybe you want to see a Muppet mop floor with Franklin?
The examples are almost endless, which makes sense, as fans consider the scene an iconic from the game. Technically, people have been modding this scene for a long time now, but interest in showing off the roast has exploded once again over the past month. Enough time has passed that fans are starting to bend meme in surreal and fun ways, as it just’s not enough to see a new face destroy Franklin now. We are now at the meta point of this meme.
A YouTuber, for example, got 37 lamars to enrich Franklin. Why 37? Who knows, but what I can say is that not all Lamars fit into the scene.
Maybe you want to look at a lifeless object talking shit to Franklin instead?
However, my absolute favorite has to be this roller coaster ride full of Lamars frying Franklin every step of the way.
Here are some of the best verbal attacks from Franklin that are floating on the internet right now.
