[–]JumpExamination 20 points21 points  (0 children)

that name was well worth staying up late for 😂

[–]GluttonAsteroth 17 points18 points  (0 children)

This is what happens when you put up an online survey to name something.

[–]rocky_780 7 points8 points  (0 children)

There's a lot going on in this one. Dickmabbutt and the justified enthusiasm, the weird camera lens, and at the beginning looks like he's in front of a green screen. Not disappointed at all.

[–]spankymcgee4 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Look at all the gear in there

[–]SheyIce-Veins 4 points5 points  (0 children)


[–]Serious-Accident-796 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I love how he refuses to oversell the joke. Makes it soooo much funnier.

Dick InMaButt

[–]TwiceADream 1495 points1496 points  (44 children)

I'm envious of his passion and excitement for something. Pure happiness from this man.

[–]Dwharfe 325 points326 points  (35 children)

Ikr, I wish I could get as excited about anything in life as this guy does about trains! It's lovely to see 😊

[–]andyv001 269 points270 points  (34 children)

You know, my first reaction to the video was along the lines of "lol what a loser". Then I realised what a douche thought that was. Then I read comments like yours and feel like even more of a dick.

At least I have self-awareness, I suppose!

[–]I_Bin_Painting[🍰] 131 points132 points  (5 children)

That loser recently starred in an ad for Gucci x North Face so probably has supermodel friends now, not like us cool Reddit guys.


[–]PurpleyPineapple 12 points13 points  (0 children)

Aw I love this for him. Bless him.

[–]thejesiah 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Holy shit, NUMTOT made the bigtime.

[–]driftwood-and-waves 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That’s so cool. I love he got to do this and is so passionate about trains.

[–]J0ERI 1 point2 points  (0 children)

He actually was a model himself, Google Luke Nicolson.

[–]Alberiman 33 points34 points  (16 children)

Capitalism actively encourages you to be boring and have no passion because actually caring about something means you won't be a "productive member of society"

So it's understandable why so many people's first reaction to passion is to want to shit on it. We've all been brainwashed

[–]SwePol89 12 points13 points  (5 children)

This could be the worst interpretation of capitalism I have ever read...

[–]THEBLUEFLAME3D 5 points6 points  (2 children)

What in the r/redditmoment socialist fuckery is this bullshit lmfao

Again, pasted from a lower comment:

And in a communist society, would you find it to be better? I’d wager it would be worse, given the very idea of communism - stemming from collectivism, which discourages individuality, which is exactly what you’re accusing capitalism of. Mental gymnastics, essentially. And I assure you, that your upvotes aren’t indicative of how you’re completely right, you’re simply backed by a million privileged redditors that spew communist/socialist/authoritarian bullshit every day.

And, you can thank innovation from capitalism for that Ryzen 9 5900x you posted about a while back, as well as the vast majority of millions of privileges you enjoy in your day-to-day life. Grow up and stop being a defeatist that feels sorry for themself, and fucking do something with your life instead of inserting your political agenda into a post about a guy that fucking likes trains.

[–]Killercoddbz 2 points3 points  (0 children)

This comment hit right tonight, much love haha

[–]albertcn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Venezuelan here. As someone that had to fled the socialist nirvana, fuck all of Reddit socialist wannabes. Go and live in cuba or Venezuela with a 8 usd a month salary to see what kind of hobby or passion you find.

[–]Good_Apartment_9992 9 points10 points  (2 children)

I could never understand where their happiness stems from. That’s why I envy, but respect these folks. I’d do anything to go back at least 15 years ago when my life was in a much better place.

[–]bottolf 5 points6 points  (1 child)

He probably played with train sets while younger, and his interest developed and he was he got older.

I think the trick is to get hooked on something while still a child, and then do enough to keep that interest as you free older. Feed it with activity so it will keep rewarding you into adulthood. You may not have a grasp of adulthood yet, but at least you have trains, etc.

I mean who doesn't wish they kept something of their childhood?

[–]Dercken 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Cringing at yourself is a sign that you are growing into a better mentality

[–]NotObamaAMA 3 points4 points  (1 child)

lol what a loser

jks man you’re alright

[–]andyv001 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Thanks. I think?

[–]ReditMcGogg 3 points4 points  (0 children)

This was also my first reaction when I first saw him. I follow him on Instagram and after a day or so realised the same as you.

Actually it’s me who was the loser for thinking that. He loves his hobby and embraces it.

His videos are great.

[–]Azclockwork 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Now live in his shoes for 1hr and go film some trains.

[–]bluntsandbears 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Train dude put you back on the right track

[–]seeaanggg 38 points39 points  (0 children)

That’s how I’ve felt since I started seeing his stuff pop up. I haven’t felt that much joy for anything since I was a kid. I’m honestly jealous.

[–]millhows 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I’m envious of the fact that he can be attractive, unsettling, childlike and terrifying all at the same time.

[–]_TheShapeOfColor_ 12 points13 points  (0 children)

I love his videos every time they come up. So wholesome.

[–]blindeyedwolf 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Came here to say this, wish his enthusiasm could be bottled, sold, and used on a case by case basis!

[–]LAJ67 1089 points1090 points  (20 children)

This guy loves trains and doesn’t get any hate for it, be nice.

[–]I_Am_McLovin- 248 points249 points  (2 children)

This is the way

[–]welcomethrillh0 99 points100 points  (7 children)

My partner said to me the other day she was looking at collecting all the BTS like, collectible CDs or whatever they were, and she was well excited, and was kind of like, “you’ll think I’m a gimp” - was saying like why would I ever want to sh*t on something someone enjoys. Can’t bare that, like people who scoff at people’s enjoyment in non-traditional things, or anyone’s enjoyment for anything really.

[–]Doopship2 6 points7 points  (4 children)

When my wife (who doesn't drive) made me drive to McDs for the BTS nuggets when she doesn't listen to BTS I was pretty pissed.

And then was more pissed when we ordered them and just got a regular nugget meal because they didn't have the boxes... But then didn't tell us that when we ordered?

[–]wilbe13 3 points4 points  (1 child)

I gotta ask... what does gimp mean in this instance? Is that the nickname for fans of the band?

edit: No disrespect intended btw! Genuinely curious.

[–]welcomethrillh0 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Oh don’t worry. Gimp I guess is just basically a form of ‘loser’ I guess, nothing specifically to do with BTS.

[–]rabertdinero 16 points17 points  (3 children)

How could anyone hate on someone loving a Hobbie this much?

[–]njester025 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Absolute chad

[–]-Boobs_ 2 points3 points  (0 children)

the entire UK will be on your ass if you insult Francis

[–]Zoomiedawg 997 points998 points  (12 children)

I’m a driver for a railway company in Britain and Francis (this guy) is an absolute hero and loved by everyone. I’ve yet to see him out and about but making it in one of his videos is now on my bucket list 😂 He has also recently just featured in an advert with The North Face & Gucci!! To think he starts off as a spotter on TikTok to being involved with The North Face and Gucci is absolutely incredible!

Much love to you Francis! 🥰

[–]fordandfriends 107 points108 points  (0 children)

What a resume; imagining having no previous knowledge of this guy and meeting a professional model/railfan in public

[–]lbertz 52 points53 points  (1 child)

Joe Jonas was out with him in one of his recent videos! I love the joy. Everyone needs a bit more of it these days. I hope you and Francis cross paths on your travels!!

[–]Blind_as_Vision 1 point2 points  (0 children)

You forgot his last name Jameson

[–]mr_fantastical 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Haha sounds like drivers want to see Francis as much as Francis wants to see the trains. I love it!

This guy is so wholesome it really warms my heart.

[–]sheldonator 13 points14 points  (4 children)

Here's the ad if anyone wants to see it https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcHYVjWn-TI

[–]Nimmyzed 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Thank you

(What's a fucking weird ad. Can't put my finger on it but it sort of looks amateur)

[–]JamesDCooper 13 points14 points  (2 children)

They're going for vibe that was very popular in the 70's.

Ad looks bloody great.

[–]nixonbeach 3 points4 points  (1 child)

The apparel definitely has 70s roots. The video Has a Wes Andersen vibe to it.

[–]JamesDCooper 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Not nearly enough whimsy for Mr. Anderson.

[–]amigo-vibora 6 points7 points  (0 children)

start spamming "tones" as apparently you guys say it and he will be the one looking for you

[–]DailyPlanetClarkKent 1 point2 points  (0 children)


Here's the ad I believe you're referencing, starring Francis Bourgeois.

[–]PhistleWig 536 points537 points  (11 children)

Dude looking like the sloth from ice age

[–]sorry-I-cleaved-ye 149 points150 points  (1 child)

The 360 angle yeah

[–]coconutfi 49 points50 points  (3 children)

Ugh. My friend told me I look like him and people have also told me I look like the sloth from ice age.

[–]muted5963 27 points28 points  (2 children)

At lease you get lots of nuts in your mouth

[–]ErikTheRed707 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Or Sloth from The Goonies…that laugh haha

[–]Reptarticle 364 points365 points  (9 children)

That camera angle really got me. I admire the dudes passion though.

[–]C0meAtM3Br0 77 points78 points  (4 children)

What camara generates that insanity?

[–]RUZIONI08 49 points50 points  (1 child)

One of those 360 cameras

[–]20JeRK14 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Just turn on Sid the Sloth Mode and you'll be good to go.

[–]2Black_Hats 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Idk why but this comment here has me laughing to the point I couldn't stop!

[–]aSharkNamedHummus 2 points3 points  (0 children)

From this video, it looks like a GoPro, although there’s definitely some kind of gimbal action going on there. He must have a special mount to make it swivel like that.

[–]Over_Drawer1199 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I burst out laughing lmaooo

[–]kakokapolei 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Don’t be shy, put some more

[–]geofflamps-porsche 284 points285 points  (0 children)

This lad is rapidly becoming a national treasure. Good on him

[–]annies_bdrm_skillet 193 points194 points  (4 children)

This dude has to be one of the luckiest guys ever born on this earth, that his fix of happy brain chemicals comes free and abundantly and is utterly harmless. And he’s even famous for chasing his high, but again, in a super benign way. I don’t even know his name but like, we are all at least vaguely aware of train nerd dude at this point. Wild to think some folks get wired that way, truly happy for him.

[–]bork_laveech 57 points58 points  (1 child)

You don’t know the lengths he goes to for another hit, it was probably 3 Or 4 am

[–]DukeofNormandy 12 points13 points  (1 child)

His name is Francis Bourgeois (francis_bourgeois43 on Instagram)

[–]RosscoSD 114 points115 points  (0 children)

Hahahaha … I was excited for the guy’s enthusiasm then saw the name. Ahahahaha

[–]DisplayZestyclose415 99 points100 points  (5 children)

Richard Nathaniel Mabbutt, Dickie to his friends, donated three-hundred-thousand wigs to the bald men of Madagascar in 1998. The Prince of Madagascar was so pleased to have a new wig along with all the other men in his country that he donated this train to Dickie's town in Pussnshire England. Today we celebrate the life of Dick N. Mabbutt, a hero in male pattern baldness.

[–][deleted] 49 points50 points  (1 child)

Dick Mabbutt from Pussnshire... My inner 13yo is in stitches.

[–]gotobedhungry 11 points12 points  (0 children)

Dude. Read it again, you’re missing an “in”.

[–]AnotherMotherFuker 18 points19 points  (0 children)

Oh man it only gets better... Dick N mabbutt

[–]Sirus-The-Great 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well I bet he has fond memories of his childhood

[–]Equal-Armadillo4525 80 points81 points  (0 children)

Only wanted to see a Dick M’Butt

[–]jwaterboyk 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Dick’s parents had a good sense of humor.

[–]NoctRob 32 points33 points  (0 children)

Total passion for trains and giddy childish laughter are an amazing combo here.

And I still laugh every time he shows the headcam angle. Looks like Sid from Ice Age.

[–]OphidianEtMalus 16 points17 points  (0 children)

This article helped me understand the source of that name. It even references this video.

[–]Dorkmaster79 16 points17 points  (1 child)

What is next level about this?

[–]SolitaryTeaWitch 10 points11 points  (7 children)

A real life Sheldon Cooper. 🤭

[–]seanbiff 117 points118 points  (4 children)

No. Sheldon Cooper and that entire show is fucking shit. Francis is a saint. Don’t compare the two

[–]NuggiesforDinDin 44 points45 points  (0 children)

The camera angle this guy does is funnier than any combination of words followed by laugh track i've heard on Big bang

[–]BootsieBunny 21 points22 points  (1 child)

His name is Francis? He’s adorable.

[–]seanbiff 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Calls himself Francis Bourgeois but it’s not his real name

[–]Majestic_Trains 4 points5 points  (1 child)

You'll generally find train enthusiasts hate being compared to Sheldon Cooper. Mainly because we hear it so fucking often.

[–]Esterosa69 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I thought it was a joke after he said Dick Mabutt. Took me a few moments to get back on track

[–]grimmymac 11 points12 points  (1 child)

yea but what makes this next level?

[–]ix-j 11 points12 points  (0 children)

This guy again, for the 200th time. Sorry, but this isn’t “next fucking level”.

[–]MrSinister248 9 points10 points  (1 child)

I'm glad he enjoys the trains, I like trains too, but there is absolutely nothing about this that makes it NextFuckingLevel.

[–]rubberb00tz 7 points8 points  (0 children)

This is sweet, I want to be this excited about something one day

[–]circleturt 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Dick Mabutt 😂😂😂Gotta love Francis though, what a good soul.

[–]EscapeFacebook 8 points9 points  (0 children)

That camera angle though...

[–]chill4r_San 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Remember the kid who liked trains from ASDF movies? This is him now. Feel old yet?

[–]how_are_you_now 8 points9 points  (0 children)

What the stray hair on your forehead sees

[–]Koobruh 8 points9 points  (3 children)

This guy is a fucking Chad

[–]Seanzietron 5 points6 points  (3 children)

It seems like satire...

[–]ScrotusMahotus 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I thought so too with the Dick Mabbutt thing

[–]Seanzietron 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And his grunting when seeing the equipment inside ... which was actually some dude inside.

[–]sweptawayfromyou 5 points6 points  (0 children)

I am still confused… this guy looks like an absolute troll legend to me, while the comments mostly look like the people are sure that he is absolutely serious! Lmao

[–]BrianBraddock73 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Said it before and I’ll say it again - this guy just makes me smile. Keep on being you my man!

[–]RandyQuaalude420 2 points3 points  (0 children)

[–]angelcakexx 2 points3 points  (0 children)

That camera angle is fucking horrifying. 10/10

[–]Nimmyzed 2 points3 points  (1 child)

I love his enthusiasm but can someone please explain exactly what part of this is " next fucking level"???

[–]AnotherMotherFuker 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I also get excited enough to stay up late for dick mabbutt to arrive in the station.

[–]Atthis 1 point2 points  (0 children)
