Supercut of tautology in The Wire

Wire2.jpg

You’ll never watch The Wire the same way again…

For five seasons of David Simon’s gritty HBO masterpiece, viewers were immersed into worlds of low-level drug pushers, lavish crime kingpins, boozy detectives, senior political figures, hard-at-it journalists and even school teachers, with show never letting up with realistic terminology for each layer of the city's subcultures.

But now it appears they all shared a mutual appreciation of tautology (essentially sentences which use repetition to validate an argument or prove a point) so that phrases such such as "Fair’s fair", "the game is the game", and "the street is the street" echo constantly. Oh, and as always, "Omar is Omar".

Props to Propolandante for the video.
