Don’t Tase Me Bro immortalized in automaton

We like a good automaton here at SlashGear, and if it manages to reproduce an internet meme then all the better.  Jon Haddock's hand-cranked model is titled "Andrew Meyer (Don't Tase Me Bro)" and reproduces the infamous 2007 University of Florida Taser incident.

Video demo after the cut

Haddock's piece is created from wood and paper mache, and shows Andrew Meyer and four of the arresting officers struggling on the floor.  The great thing about this being a hand-cranked diorama is that you can make them struggle as much or as little as you like; unfortunately you'll have to use your imagination to picture Senator John Kerry.

The whole thing measures 52 x 58 x 31 cm.  Haddock is responsible for numerous art pieces, automaton, comics and sculptures, usually commenting on politics, war or other topical issues.  You can see more here.
