SiIvaGunner Wiki

Baneposting is a minor meme on the SiIvaGunner channel. Based on the awkward dialogue between a CIA agent and the villain Bane in the 2012 movie The Dark Knight Rises, the meme involves inserting audio from the scene into rips.


In the prologue to the movie The Dark Knight Rises, the masked villain Bane is captured with his associates and interrogated on a plane by a CIA agent. The agent then threatens to throw Bane off the plane, however Bane reveals that this was his plan all along, and escapes.

CIA agent: "If I pull that [mask] off, will you die?"
Bane: "It would be extremely painful..."
CIA agent: "You’re a big guy."
Bane: "...for you."

The meme initially spawned on 4chan's /tv/ board in December 2011, after a video of the prologue to The Dark Knight Rises was leaked online. The awkward dialogue and delivery quickly became a meme. The last two lines of the aforementioned exchange were often misinterpreted to have sexual connotations, i.e. "[I'm a big guy] for you", which added to their popularity. During the following months, the meme spread to other 4chan boards and to other internet communities and forums, including Reddit.

In 2014, the meme got popular on YouTube after several mashup artists started including the awkward dialogue in mashup videos. One of them was Caleb Pearl, who did a mashup of "All Star" and the The Dark Knight Rises called "Bane Star (Big Guy For You) ft. CIA" on June 25, 2014.

The meme first appeared in high quality rips on April 12, the day the SiIvaGunner channel took up the torch after the GiIvaSunner Termination. "A Big Announcement", an announcement video celebrating SiIvaGunner's return and announcing the release of The Phantom Rips: SiIVa has come to, was primarily an edit of the scene.

On July 29, 2016, SiIvaGunner uploaded two videos that featured Baneposting: "Careless Announcement" and "Renai Circulation - Bakemonogatari Portable". These rips were inspired by the aforementioned "Bane Star" mashup by Caleb Pearl, and the latter rip took samples from the mashup. On September 6 of the same year, "Renai Circulation - Bakemonogatari Portable" and an instrumental version of the same rip were released on Bandcamp as Bigai Circulation (Single), with a Bane-related description parodying Triple-Q's album "All Star Circulation". When the 9/11 2016 rips were removed from the channel, the avatar and channel banner (both of which originally referenced 9/11) were replaced with Banepost versions for the rest of that day.

After Season 1, the meme was used a lot less, most likely due to the meme not being able to fit into rips that well as others. However, it is still used in some rips, mostly alongside other memes.
