You are watching: This is nothing like the simulations



Just Like The Simulations is a memorable quote uttered by the Clone Trooper (voiced by Dave Boat) from the 2005 video game Star Wars: Battlefront II. The quote is used alongside a capture from the game depicting a clone as a reaction image to an above caption or screenshot, typically to show how a situation or event in real life mimics something done virtually. It can also be used without the image as a standalone catchphrase.


The original image and line that the meme references are pulled from Star Wars: Battlefront II, released on November 1st, 2005. The screenshot used features the standard Soldier Class Clone Trooper running on the Geonosis map with the caption “Just like the simulations,” which is one of many iconic voice lines from actor Dave Boat, who was responsible for all of the Clone Trooper lines in the game (featured below). In the context of the Star Wars universe, the line is a reference to how clones trained in various battle simulations so they were prepared for real combat.


The earliest example of the quote being used as a meme alongside this image comes from a post to Reddit<1> on January 31st, 2017, by RealBaller21 to the r/PrequelMemes subreddit. Posted under the title, “From my point of view, this IS a Prequel meme,” the meme (seen below) received over 9,300 upvotes and 145 comments.


Redditor<2> Gnoll_Librarian posted another example to the r/PrequelMemes sub on May 7th, 2017 (shown below), receiving over 14,000 upvotes and 179 comments.


On December 29th, 2017, Twitter<3> user HazDaddySlim tweeted a meme referencing Flex Tape with spokesperson Phil Swift’s face photoshopped over the top of the clone (seen below).
