Impossibru is a reaction image based on a stillshot of an asian man wearing a bizarre expression and the caption reading "impossibru," which is typically interpreted as the Engrish equivalent of the word "impossible" (Japanese: インポシブルimposhiburu). Both the image and the phrase has been used to express one's surprise or exclamation across various forums and imageboard sites, and is notable as being similar to Rape Face.
The man shown in the original photograph is a Japanese comedian named Ayumu Kato, who became one of many celebrity victims in the popular hidden-camera prank show Panic Face King. In the episode, Kato is introduced to a group of businessmen (played by hired actors) under the premise of a business meeting. But as they begin their conversation, the three businessmen suddenly get shot down in front of him and a man wearing body armor enters the room to fire at the "snipers" outside. Kato falls to the floor in panic and moments later, another man enters the room with a gun, puts it to his head and informs him that he'd been punked by the TV show.
