Joe Rogan’s slightly below-average height has been subject to memes in recent months, but a dedicated troll took it to the next level and paid a pilot to display one in the sunny Los Angeles sky.
Joe is the first person to admit he isn’t the tallest man on the planet. However, despite claiming that he is approximately 5 feet 8 inches multiple times, including a conversation with Neil deGrasse Tyson on his podcast, some fans aren’t convinced he’s telling the truth.
If you venture deep into the Joe Rogan Experience subreddit, you’ll see countless threads about his height, including some that have pictures comparing him to people who are supposedly his height or shorter.
The community’s obsession with his height has birthed a series of memes that revolve around comically photoshopping Joe to appear much shorter than he is.
However, someone decided to take it even further and hilariously paid a pilot to fly a banner that said, “Joe Rogan is literally 5 foot 3.” It could be seen throughout the clear Los Angeles sky. and now it’s doing the rounds on the internet, too.
And the funniest part about it is that the pilot made a glaring spelling error in the banner, forgetting to include the ‘R’ in ‘literally.’

People had mixed reactions to the meme. Some thought it was “money well spent” in the sense that it gave hundreds of thousands of onlookers, both in person and on the internet, a good chuckle.
But on the other hand, others struggled to understand how the obsession with his height has gotten so far.
Either way, it’s trending worldwide and will almost certainly be mentioned in one of his upcoming podcast episodes.
