"Lights...camera...counterfeiting!"

It's difficult to determine who was dumber: the dude who used the fake money, or the gas station attendant who accepted it.


Actually, scratch that -- it was definitely the gas station attendant.


A tweet from the South Brunswick, New Jersey police department Monday reads, "SERIOUSLY....this is the fake $100 dollar bill a suspect passed at a local gas station."


Below that is a photo of the front and back of a fairly convincing-looking, clearly well-used $100 bill.  Well, convincing at a glance -- except for the words "FOR MOTION PICTURE USE ONLY" printed on the front of the bill.  And on the back.


There are several other differences, too.  For example, where a real bill reads, "THIS NOTE IS LEGAL TENDER FOR ALL DEBTS, PUBLIC AND PRIVATE," the fake bill reads, "THIS NOTE IS NOT LEGAL. IT IS TO BE USED FOR MOTION PICTURES."


Not to mention the image of Benjamin Franklin has the founding father showing a smirk and giving some serious side-eye.


And yet, the unidentified gas station attendant accepted it, no questions asked.

"Detectives tracked down the 20 year old Montgomery man who admitted he was surprised the clerk took the money," the South Brunswick PD tweet declares.

No word on what charges the fake-money-passer might face.
