  • 08/20/15--13:46: Witness Me
  • About

    Witness Me is a catchphrase spoken by the characters known as War Boys in the film Mad Max: Fury Road before they commit a kamikaze-type act in battle. The phrase has become popular in online forums as a way to draw attention to one’s post.

    Origin

    Mad Max: Fury Road was released May 15th, 2015, and during the film, the phrase is spoken frequently by the War Boys, a group of leukemic children of the villain Immortan Joe. The War Boys usually yell the phrase after spray painting their mouths silver and before attempting to die by suicide in battle, which they believe will send them to Valhalla, or heaven. In some scenes of the film, they pair the phrase with “We will ride eternal, shiny and chrome!”

    Spread

    The first use of WItness Me on 4chan’s /tv/ board actually occurred 5 days before the release of the film, by a poster who was claiming that he’d seen the film and that it was good.[2] Since then, the phrase has been used about 2,200 times on various 4chan boards, often times paired with a variety of images of different characters with chrome sprayed around their mouth, including Pepe the frog.[3] Alternately, the phrase was often paired with mugshots of people who had been inhaling spray paint as a drug, which can cause the person to appear as if they had sprayed themselves in the face. The phrase is used as a comment on various other Mad Max-related memes, including the official Mad Max subreddit, /r/madmax, which calls its readers War Boys and indicates their presence by saying they are “WITNESSING!”[4] In addition, there are 122 different works of art on DeviantArt using the term.[7]

    On May 23, 2015 a link was posted to r/WTF which featured an image of 2 adult males, one with his mouth painted silver chrome using car spray paint with the title “YOUWILLARRIVE AT THEGATES OF VALHALLA, SHINYANDCHROME!”, the link received 4531 upvotes and 668 comments[8]

    Amazon Comment Trolling

    On May 27th, 2015, the Onion’s AV Club and other media outlets reported that users posing as War Boys had been leaving troll reviews on a product called Wilton Silver Color Mist, an edible food spray used in dying cakes and other foods a chromed silver. The war boy-imitating users asked questions like “Will this product ensure my path to Valhalla? Do I need to be witnessed as well?” and left reviews like “IMMORTANJOEWILLWITNESS ME FORFINDINGTHISSPRAY ON SALEFORCERTAIN.”[5][6]

    Early? I’d Better Make A Joke is a YouTube comment bait, usually posted before the view count of a video goes above 301, anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours after its initial upload. The comment’s format includes some form of the phrase: “I’m early? I’d better make a joke.” followed by several hard line breaks, so that the joke (usually a sarcastic phrase or sentence) must be revealed by using YouTube’s “Read more” button.

    Origin

    It is unknown where the first comment in this style was posted, but they began appearing on newly posted videos during the summer of 2015.[1]



    Spread

    These are another form of upvote baits in the Youtube Comments section, which many users use to gain likes on their comment. The comments are often posted in videos of popular YouTube accounts, specifically ones that focus on Lets Plays, such as Game Grumps and Markiplier. Searching YouTube comments is still inexact, and due to the mutation of the phrase, an exact count is difficult to gather, however preliminary searches have found 625 examples of the bait.[2] In addition, it has been mentioned in several forums off of YouTube, including the Game Grumps subreddit and the OSBot forum.[3][4]

  • About

    Netflix and Chill, often seen written as “I thought you said Netflix and Chill!” or “20 Minutes into Netflix and Chill”, is Internet slang for inviting someone over to one’s home for sexual purposes. The phrase is often used in image macros and as a hashtag on social media.

    Origin

    The phrase first started appearing online in late 2014, mostly through Black Twitter. An early example was tweeted by the themed Twitter Start3rPack on November 14th, 2014; it was labeled “the Netflix and Chill Starter Pack,” with four photographs indicating the pack would contain comfortable socks, pajamas, and a Trojan magnum condom. The tweet received 44 retweets and 56 favorites.[1]

    Lake of the Ozarks Boat Crash refers to a viral video in which seven speedboat passengers are violently thrown about the deck after hitting a large wave at high speed. On YouTube, many remixed variations of the video have been created featuring electronic dance music tracks dubbed over the background audio.

    Origin

    On August 31st, 2012, the Lake TV YouTube channel uploaded a news segment containing footage of a boat crash at the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri, where seven people were thrown back-and-forth across a boat’s deck after plowing into a wake at dangerously high speed (shown below). While all seven boaters were injured, five were taken to a hospital to be treated for “minor to moderate injuries.” In three years, the video gathered upwards of 4.5 million views and 1,100 comments. An extended video was later released, which features the boat crash at 2:17 (shown below, right).



    Spread

    On September 1st, 2012, The Daily Mail[1] published an article about the incident. The same day, YouTuber ohhellmaybe reuploaded a slowed clip of the crash (shown below, left). Also on September 1st, YouTuber Tom Robinson uploaded the crash clip dubbed with the 2010 dubstep song “Scary Monsters & Nice Sprites” by Skrillex (shown below, right). Within three years, the videos gained over 3.5 million and 1.4 million views respectively.



    On September 2nd, Off Shore Only Forums[4] member DrReedJ replied to a thread about the video, where he claimed to have been one of the passengers on the boat and described various injuries the passengers received.

    “Hey guys, I was a passenger in this boat during the accident. Yes, there are many cardinal rules broken. The most important one I feel is no life jackets worn. As crazy as it seems, we had jackets for each person but as the poker run began we realized no one else was wearing them….. How foolish we were. I have read so many nasty comments on YouTube and other sites I am in shock. My wife suffered 4 broken ribs, punctured lung and a broken foot. She has not left the house since getting home. She is in severe pain. The driver crushed his eye orbital and broke hus back at T8 ( he is a former F-2 racer with APBA). Another passenger who raced professionally for many years broke his pelvis in several places and is in a wheelchair. One of the other girls crushed her eye orbital also. The guy from lake tv fractured his hip and broke his wrist. My injuries were minor compared, busted my head open and damaged a rib or two. Everyone is black and blue. This was a very upsetting event for everyone involved. I have been around powerboats for many years and it only takes on unguarded minute to loose a life or permanently hurt people you love.”

    On September 7th, the JukinVideo YouTube[2] channel reposted footage of the crash. On the following day, YouTuber Rayzed Entertainment posted an edited version of the video mixed with the 1993 dance song “What is Love” by Haddaway (shown below, left). Also on September 8th, YouTuber Julian Zamora uploaded another Skrillex dubstep remix (shown below, right).



    On February 28th, 2013, the Leisure Boating YouTube channel uploaded a clip dubbed with the 2012 trap song “Harlem Shake” (shown below, left). On April 23rd, 2014, YouTuber TDFWFail posted a version of the video edited with the 2013 trap song “Turn Down for What” by DJ Snake and Lil Jon (shown below right). The following day, Redditor johnny5k submitted the remix to the /r/videos[3] subreddit.

  • 08/21/15--11:56: Ghost (Destiny)
  • About

    Ghost (Destiny) refers to the Destiny protagonist’s artificial intelligence companion portrayed by Game of the Thrones star, Peter Dinklage. The character has come to great online notoriety due to Dinklage’s seemingly lackluster performance for the character, specifically in the alpha release of the game, and has since been dubbed “Dinklebot” by fans as a mix between “Dingklage” and “robot”, and sometimes referred to as such in the same vein as Dinkleberg. As of “The Taken King” DLC pack, all lines originally voiced by Dinklage, as well as all voice overs for the Ghost in the future, have been replaced by prominent video game voice actor, Nolan North.

    Origin

    On June 11th, 2015, during the Sony conference, Playstation Blog employee Sid Shaun interviewed Bungie community manager ‘DeeJ’ about whether or not Peter Dinklage was in fact in the game. DeeJ confirmed this and went on to say:[1]

    Peter Dinklage is the voice of the ghost in this demo. As you learn more about Destiny, you just might be hearing more from him.

    The ghost is your interactive companion, he’s your partner, he’s your wingman. You’ll take him with you everywhere you go. A lot of Destiny is about going into these ruins of our lost civilizations and unlocking their secrets so that we can safeguard our future. The ghost is going to be a bit part of that. So when you come across technology from the golden age that fell and collapsed, when that cataclysm occurred, the ghost will be the thing that you pull out to resurrect that technology.

    The interview was recorded and uploaded to Playstation’s official YouTube channel the same day (shown below).



    Spread

    Following the announcement of a playable version of the alpha build of Destiny, many fans began talking about what to expect from the game, including Peter Dinklage as the Ghost. The earliest known use of the term “Dinklebot” online was on June 10th, 2014, on Reddit, via the /r/Gaming subreddit in which user Merkinary inquired as to whether the Ghost was voiced by Peter Dinklage.[2]

    -Merkinary
    Is it voiced by Peter Dinklage? Sounded like it to me.

    -infestedjoker:
    Yes some people like to call him tyrionbot lol
    -Scaryclouds:
    Dinklebot?

    Following the release of the alpha build of Bungie’s Destiny, on June 12th, 2014, many fans began to criticize the seemingly poor performance of Game of Throne’s actor, Peter Dinklage, whom had become well known for his acting abilities. On June 14th, 2014, YouTuber SevenisYellow uploaded a clip from the alpha of Dinklage’s character saying, “That Wizard came from the moon,” (shown below, right).



    On June 18th, 2014, YouTuber GameZone uploaded a parody of Dinklage’s line with various impressions of other famous actors preforming the same line (shown below, left). On July 20th, 2014, YouTuber hoodwinkedfool uploaded a remix of the “wizard” line along with samples of other lines by Dinklage which were considered poorly performed (shown below, right).



    Due to the backlash from Dinklage’s performance in the alpha, Bungie stated that Dinklage would re-record his lines in time for the beta.[3] On July 17th, 2014, Eurogamer uploaded a comparison video of Dinklage’s performances in both the alpha and beta (shown below, left). On October 18th, 2014, Smosh Games released an episode of the Honest Trailers series in which both Destiny and Dinklage’s performance are criticized (shown below, right). Elsewhere on the web, The website Dinklebot.net was created for personal tracking of a Destiny players character.[4] On Twitter there a various posts with the hashtag “#dinklebot”,[5] as well as on Tumblr.[6]



    Notable Developments

    On August 4th, 2015, Bungie announced that with the upcoming DLC, “The Taken King”, it would be replacing all lines that included Peter Dinklage’s voice acting work, and replacing it with that of seasoned video game voice actor Nolan North.The story was reported on by several news outlets,[7][8][9] as well as by “Rooster Teeth’s”: gaming news show, The Know in an episode titled “Destiny’s Dinklebot REPLACED?!” (shown below).

    “It Just Works”

    One of the most common subjects of discussion regarding King Crimson is the nature of his ability. Due to often confusing presentation in the manga and poor translation, many fans were left wondering how does the ability to skip time work, questions about it dating back to as early as of August 29th, 2006[3]. Many explanations for King Crimson’s ability had been made, some of them even including graphs, though the most common explanation simply being “It just works”. On October 22rd, 2012, an anonymous 4chan poster uploaded an image parodying an Apple advert containing the phrase with King Crimson’s head superimposed over the Apple logo[4].

  • 08/24/15--13:25: Black Monday
  • Overview

    Black Monday is a term used to describe major historical events that occurred on the first day of a seven-day week, especially ones that carry negative connotations or otherwise undesirable consequences. In business jargon, the term is primarily associated with a stock market crash triggered by a momentary financial collapse within a single market and leads to a chain reaction of massive declines in stock prices across the rest of the world. It is not to be confused with Black Friday, an annual shopping sale event observed on the day after Thanksgiving in North America.

    Background

    The coinage of “Black Monday” is attributed to the U.S. congressman John Bell Williams (D-Mississippi), who used the term to to protest the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education, a landmark case in which state-level segregation of public schools for black and white students was declared to be unconstitutional, on May 17th, 1954. However, it was introduced to the general public on a much larger scale on October 19th, 1987 to describe the worldwide stock market crash that started in Hong Kong and spread to the rest of Asian and European Markets, before eventually impacting the economy of the United States; within the same trading day, The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) fell exactly 508 points to 1,738.74 (22.61%), which remains the largest one-day percentage decline in the DJIA to this date.


    The terms Black Monday and Black Tuesday are also respectively applied to October 28 and October 29, 1929, which occurred after Black Thursday on October 24, which started the Stock Market Crash of 1929.

    Developments

    Black Monday 2011

    Entering the 21st century, the term became even more closely associated with major financial collapses through its usage on multiple occasions, most notably the sudden decline in asset values of global stock markets on August 8th, 2011, following the Standard & Poor’s unprecedented credit rating downgrade of the U.S. sovereign debt from AAA (“risk free”) to AA+ on the preceding Friday. By market close, the Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 634.76 points (-5.55%) to close at 10,809.85, making it the 6th largest drop of the index in history.

    Black Monday 2015

    The second major “Black Monday” in the global stock market occurred on August 24th, 2015, when the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SSE) Composite Index suffered a drastic decline of 8.45%, the booming economy’s worst decline in a single day in eight years.
