About

A Man Has Fallen Into the River in Lego City is a copypasta taken from a 2009 commercial for the Lego City Rescue Helicopter. The commercial's script became a vehicle for shitposting in early 2020 and followed an existing trend in which scripts for commercials and song lyrics were edited in as dialogues.

Origin

On May 11th, 2009, YouTube channel Transu99 posted the commercial for the Lego City Rescue Helicopter. In the commercial, a Lego person has fallen into a river and needs the rescue helicopter (shown below).



A man has fallen into the river in Lego City! Start the new rescue helicopter! Hey! Build the helicopter and off to the rescue. Prepare the lifeline, lower the stretcher, and make the rescue. The new Emergency Collection from Lego City!

In January of 2020, Twitter[7] user @ifollowincels posted a parody of an Anonymous Asexual comic which featured the characters saying the dialogue. The account was suspended, but the video was reposted by @highcipe[8] on January 2nd (shown below).



Spread

The video was reposted to iFunny,[1] Instagram,[2], Reddit[9] and YouTube.[3] On January 3rd, the post was added to /r/copypasta,[4] gaining over 360 points. Over the following week, the phrase began appearing in various image macros and videos that had no relation to the text. For example, Redditor Joe-lolz posted the text in a comic in /r/okbuddyretard[5] and gained over 5,700 points. User R_E_D_D_I_T posted an example of a political cartoon with the phrase, gaining over 3,800 points.[6]
