For the purpose of this tale, we're going to call the girl in this video "Becky" because we don't know her name and she just looks like a Becky to us. We're also going to use the word "allegedly" a lot. Count along if you want to make a game out of it!
So here is the story about this Vine: Allegedly, this girl was stopped by cops for underage drinking at a charity/music festival in College Station, Texas called Chilifest. And allegedly the cops challenged her to a game of wits, fortitude and stamina. Her prize should she find herself victorious? FREEDOM! (Allegedly!)
Translation: Becky played rock-paper-scissors in order to get out of a ticket. Allegedly.
What happened in the Vine was pretty amazing, but Becky's facial expressions are truly award-winning. She goes from looking emotionally overwrought to sheer panic to determination to utter, crap-her-pants relief all in a matter of five seconds. And her dude-bros and girls celebrated her triumph as if she had just taken down a pack of ninjas single-handedly to defend her family's honor.
When in reality she just made a hand gesture that was the exact opposite of the cop's hand gesture. Allegedly.
After Becky's victory, the cops walked away and left the youths to their shenanigans. Here is a GIF from a different angle, courtesy of reddit user intfooStringbar:
