Slaps Roof of Car is a popular phrasal template featuring a mock conversation between a car salesman and potential buyer in which the salesman emphasizes the phrase "this bad boy can fit so much X in it" by slapping the roof of the car. The phrase is frequently used as the caption to an illustration of a car salesman and the buyer.
On September 30th, 2014, Twitter  user @OBiiieeee tweeted, "Car Salesman: *slaps roof of car* this bad boy can fit so much fucking spaghetti in it." The post (shown below) received more than 7,700 retweets and 13,000 likes in four years.
Nearly a month later, on October 28th, 2014, Twitter user @Carlitos_N tweeted one of the earliest variations (shown below, left). They wrote, "Car Salesman: *slaps roof of car* this baby here can fit so much AHH! YO DID YOU SEE THAT SPIDER HANGING OFF THE MIRROR?! I'M OUT YO, I QUIT."
On July 9th, 2015, photographer Katarzyna Bialasiewicz published the photograph "Car dealer showing vehicle" on the stock photography website Dreamstime.com (shown below, center).
The following year, on February 26th, 2016, the website YourMechanic.com published an illustration of the stock photograph in the article "How to Effectively Deal With a Car Salesman" (shown below, right).
Three years later, on December 18th, 2017, Redditor  sweetums1313 posted the tweet in the /r/me_irl subreddit. Within seven months, the post received more than 13,300 points (91% upvoted) and 130 comments.
Several months later, on June 25th, Twitter user @MirGucci posted the original tweet as the caption to an illustration of a car salesman and a potential buyer. The post (shown below, center) received more than 875 retweets and 2,400 likes, reviving the meme.
Following the tweet, Redditors on the /r/dankmemes subreddit began posting variations of the meme. One of the earliest was posted less than 24 hours later, when Redditor Levardio posted a variation that criticized the subreddit, photoshopping the image to read "*slaps roof of format* this bad boy can fit so many fucking effortless memes in it." The post (shown below, right) received more than 13,000 points (96% upvoted) and 75 comments.
