A Red Dead Redemption 2 TikTok meme does the trick, representing John marston kick his son Jack in the air. As shown in both Red Dead Redemption and its 2018 prequel, John and Jack Marston don’t exactly have the ideal father-son relationship. The two make an honest effort to make things right, even when things between them seem strained.
Red Dead Redemption 2 takes place several years before the events of entry into 2010. John Marston still runs with the Van der Linde gang, his wife Abigail and young son Jack follow him. As one would expect from a child born into an outlaw family, Jack’s youth is full of horrors. He is kidnapped by the Braithwaite family in the prequel, for example, then later forced to deal with the loss of loved ones. Jack experiences a few bright spots in his young life, such as a fishing trip with Red dead 2 protagonist Arthur Morgan, although that also turns sour at the end.
Recently, Reddit user EnvironmentalTour272 shared a Red Dead Redemption 2 meme from TikTok that doesn’t portray John Marston’s parenting skills in their best light. The brief video clip is eight seconds long and begins with John chasing his son Jack along a shore. When the two characters are finally face to face, John cries out a curse and throws Jack into the air. The poor kid rises several meters, fidgeting before falling off a rapid “I hate you“targeting his once-absent dad. See the admittedly hilarious video in the Reddit post linked below:
The original video creator cleverly put together a few premium audio clips to make it all work. And it works. Again, this does not paint John marston in a good light as a father, but serves as a funny, albeit sad, reminder that Jack Marston is quite the tragic character.
Rockstar Games and publisher Take-Two Interactive released Red Dead Redemption 2 by the end of 2018, to critical acclaim and commercial success that has yet to subside. In fact, the Dead red the franchise is nothing short of incredible success for both companies. The 2010 and 2018 installments moved 60 million combined units globally, Take-Two confirmed in an earnings report over the summer. Red Dead Redemption 2 alone, 38 million copies have been sold.
