Why did this repair viral? – Oh yeah. – This was me. Ooga oogaooga-chaka – Not this cursed persona. – That was it? Oh my God. – The dancing babyfrom Ally McBeal, which was a show I watchedas it premiere.

In my memory, it replenished in all the pixels. -( FBE) So that’s 1996′ sdancing babe or babe cha-chaand this video departed crazy viral and proceededto show up in mainstream media, most notably on Fox’sAlly McBeal. – Okay.- I don’t think that child would hold up in today’sviral thing– today’s social media climate.- But there was nothing. – So that was probablythe first thing ever. – Memes haven’t changedand meme humor hasn’t changed since 1996. – Oh, okay.- Yes, yes. I recollect downloading thison Kazaa. – Sure, Star Wars kid.- Of course, Star Wars dude. A classic. – Yeah. – I did that becauseI liked it so much. – He’s got moves, serviceman. – Who hasn’t picked upa lodge or a cane and feigned that theywere Darth Vader? Everyone has. – Oh, what an icon. – I unquestionably can see whythat get viral. I feel like that was justa vine or TikTok. – I remember watching thatand laughing at it and then feeling bad years laterwhen the person who was in it said that it was the worstthing that ever happened to him. – The kid certainly probablyhad a really hard time as a result of that video, but I’ve always thought he was awesome. -( FBE) So, this isStar Wars kid and according to reports, the teenage left the recorded strip at school and the footagewas then discovered by classmates who postedit onto Kazaa, which was a popularpeer to peer file sharing area and there are estimatesthat video has been contemplated at least a billion times, but there’s no way to accurately move itsview count.- Oh wow.A billion views. – Everyone’s kinda makingfun of this person and I’m like, he’s having fun, boy. He turns on that camera, he’s living his truth.( dramatic music) – “In the outpouring of 1999, the Family Learning Channel commissioned animatorDon Hertzfeldt to produce promotionalsegments for their network.” – “The caricatures were completedin five weeks. The Family Learning Channelrejected all of them upon review and they werenever aired.” – What is this? – I know what this is. I’ve seen this before. – This I still watch aboutonce a year. -( person) My spoonis too big. – Yes, I know this one. – Yeah, I remember this.- Do you know this? – Uh huh. – What is this? – This is some experimental film.-( banana) I am a banana. – I mull I have a deeprooted thing in my president and that’s why I’m doinganimation now from this video. – Yes, it’s my favorite partcoming up. -( shadowed) Everybody dance.- These are charming. – Hell yeah, this one usedto see me laugh so hard. – Oh God. -( gloomed) My anus is bleeding.- Wait, what the hell? – That actually freaked me outwhen I was little. I was worried aboutbleeding anuses acces too prematurely. -( shadowed) My anus is bleeding.- When I was ten, I was like, “This is the funniestthing that’s ever been created.” – I know what that’s like, buddy.It’s no fun. – I wonder what this artistwent on to do because this was so good. – Oh no. – Yeah, I can see whythey scorned these. – How does he haveso much blood inside of his little cloud figure? – I meditate the extent of thisis there’s no point. -( FBE) So, that wasan enlivened short-lived named “Rejected’made in 1999. The short actually won2 7 animation awards around the globeand was actually a 2001 Academy Awardnominee. – Wow, I’m so glad.I’m glad that that person got his dues becauseit is still to this day one of my most favoritepieces. – It’s very good, but it also speaks of the fact that there’sanimation that’s on YouTube today that should be gettingnominated for an Academy Awardin the short animation list. – Absolutely. Ma-ia-hii – Yes.- Numa Numa.- There’s Boogie.- You know that’s not actually Boogie, right? – Before I fulfilled him, I pictured for the longest timethis actually was. – I don’t think I lookanything like that kid, but everyone else does. Ma-ia-haa – Yeah, I’ve emphatically seen this. Ma-ia-hiiMa-ia-huu Ma-ia-haa – This is just TikTok. – Ma-ia-hooMa-ia-haa Ma-ia-haa Ma-ia-hii – Yeah, I remember thinkingthis was the literal funniest thing in the entireworld. – I did the same stuffin my room. – Yeah.No one will admit it, but everyone does that. – That is an all epoch classic.In Europe, people like playing this on the radiolike, “Ah yes, our culture.” – Not to brag, but Hankis actually the leading translator of the Numa Numasong into English, which is…- There’s a guy. He’s calling a girl on the phoneand she’s not interested.-( FBE) That video’s knownas Numa Numa and creator Gary Brolsmauploaded it to the website Newgrounds in 2004 and is one of the most viral videos of all time.- I recollect Newgrounds. – Newgrounds was justthe wild west of content. There was some weirdstuff on there, but that’s cool that thatwas up there. That was the first typeof community on a video website. – I forgot about this one. – Oh God, I affection this videoso much. I haven’t seen this in 20 years. -( narrator) We went China, France, India, Israel, Pakistan, Russia, the UK.- This is another one I paraphrased all the time. – This video was so bigin middle school.-( narrator) One period, we decide those Chinese lads of a bitchesare going down, so we launched a nukeat China. Once it’s on its way, China’s like “[ bleep ]. Who the[ bleep] is shooting us? ” – It reminds me of a verybase explanation of history of the world. -( narrator) And France is like, “[ Bleep] guys, the missiles are coming.Fire our[ bleep ]. But I’m le tired.”- Le tired. -( narrator) “The missilesare coming. Fire our[ bleep ]. – But I am le tired. – Well, have a nap.Then, fire the missiles. Yeah, I remember. -( narrator) So now we gotmissiles flying everywhere. – Is this PewDiePie? – He sounds like PewDiePie.-( narrator) Some gigantic meteor’slike “Well,[ bleep] that.” – I like that we avoidthe holocaust because the meteor isn’tinterested in us. -( narrator) Assuming we don’tblow ourselves up, Californians just have toworry about California breaking off from theUnited States to go hang with Hawaii.Alaska can come too. The end.- I remember that one in the old Albino Blacksheep, Newground epoches. It’s one of my favorites. – There’s some good threads in there.That might be one of the most quotable videosof all time. I remember that was oneof the first videos I ever interpreted on the internet. -( FBE) That was calledThe End of the World Flash Animated Cartoonthat was uploaded to Albino Blacksheepin 2003 and the recital in the cartoon started someiconic catchphrases that were often usedback in the day on the internet, such as “I am le tired.”- Okay, so that’s where that comes from.I used to say that because other parties said it.- I say that to my friendsall the time. It’s just part of the culture now.This is the most influential piece of art in the lasttwo decades. – I am le tired.At the end of VidCon, everyone is le tired. Badger, badger, badger – Yes. – Weebl. – Such chaotic neutral energyfrom Weebl. Oh, it’s a serpent – Classic.- Yeah, classic. – So that’s mostly whatgoes on in my brain on a daily basis. – Badger, badger, badger, badger, badger, badger Mushroom, mushroom – Weebl, underappreciated deity of the internet.He still does stuff. Are you reinforcing him? You is advisable to. – That’s internet beginnings right there.That’s history.That’s gonna go in a textbookone day. – The thing about that videois it gets so stuck in your ability very quickly and it won’t leave. -( FBE) That was createdin 2003 by animator known as Weebl and whostill makes animated content today on his YouTube channelknown as Weebls Stuff. – This was one of the firstthings that in “peoples lives” led viral,’ induce I was at schooland everyone was like, “Have you heard ofBadger, Badger? ” It was like that babe sharkmoment where it’s like it absolutely dominatedthe entire world. – My large-scale takeaway so faris we have come a long way with internet content.But I imply, I used to desire this substance, too.It’s the more random, the better.- There’s a llamaand another– That was so instinctive. – I’ve also encompassed this song.- Yeah. – I’ve never seen this one. – I remember this. – I was once a treehouseI lived in a cake But I never saw the waythe orange slayed the rake I know the whole word.I could keep going. It’s really upsetting. – It’s such a simple videoand literally anybody could have edited thatin Flash, but it’s one of those songsthat again, merely get into your foreman. -( FBE) Reports date the llama songwas uploaded first in 2004 to art titan DeviantArtwhere supposedly it racked up over 50,000 views beforespreading to Newgrounds and Albino Blacksheep.- 50,000 ends back in the day was like you are the mostfamous person that’s ever existed. – It’s crazy that thatentertained beings back in the day. Not much existed, so it was easy to go viral. – I retain entering intoAlbino Blacksheep every day to find something like thatand when I found that, I pondered I saw treasure. Peanut butter jelly season – Oh yes.I desired this. – This was everywhere.- This you would use on AIM as your apart letter. – Where he at? Where he at? Now there he goThere he vanish – Peanut butter jelly – It’s still special. – It was a lot funnierwhen I was younger. Peanut butter jellyPeanut butter jelly Peanut butter jelly – I affection this guy. – I simply don’t get whyit’s a banana.- It’s a dancing banana.Don’t have to ask questions. -( FBE) That one’s PeanutButter Jelly Time performed by theBuckwheat Boys. – Performed by? Okay. -( FBE) So this video’sbeen remixed and reuploaded so often, numerous thinkit came from YouTube, but it was firstly uploadedin early 2002, three years before YouTube.- Absolutely. That was everywhere.Talk about an internet icon. That’s an internet icon. – It’s still really popular.I definitely sounds like everyone, if they heard that, they would know. They would sing along. We like the moon – Oh follower, why do I knowwhat this is? – What is it? – It’s Quiznos subs.’ Cause it is close to us – That’s true. – Ah, it’s the sound ofmy last intelligence cell dying. But not as muchas a spoon – I never appreciated that before.- Is that before or after the Annoying Orange? – I need to wash my eyesor something. That was scary. – Why are we still makingcontent? – Yeah.- We’re done. We did it.All the best material has been constructed. -( FBE) So that’sWe Like the Moon created by Joel Veitchin 2003. We Like the Moonactually get picked up by Quiznos and becamean inspiration for some of its advertisementsthat appeared on television. – That’s right.Their terrifying ad campaign. – I do remember that.Quiznos had some weird little character things like that.What about that realizes you wanna eat? – I don’t wanna eat your menu with thatface on it.- If that’s the thingmaking it, hell nah. -( guy) I’m just wild enoughto do what God said. That’s why answers happen .( fart interference) – It’s the farting preacher. -( gentleman) That’s why …( fart sound) I’m not talking aboutfiguring it out with your brains.( fart racket) – Oh gosh. – Oh son. -( mortal) Hallelujah.The first thing “thats happened”. That’s it .( fart sound) -( follower) Whoo! – I shouldn’t be tittering because it’s just farts, but I love a good fart. – It’s literally the oldest joke.The fart joke is the oldest joke in the world.It’s in Greek humors from 2000 years agoand it’s still huge. – I don’t think I’ve everseen that one. That’s the only oneon such lists that I do not immediately recognize, but that’s exhilarating. -( FBE) So, that was the fartingpreacher. Some reports announce thisthe original viral video with some reports statingthat in 1985, two men began administering VHScopies of the farting preacher where it began to gainpopularity across the country.- Wow, a viral VHS. – What’s funny is there wasn’treally seem aftermaths. Parties didn’t play aroundwith that, so to take something that serious and then do that, I think that’s great. – Can we do a fart ?( fart noises) – Last time I saw this videowas probably before the first VidCon.I think that was in a very weird but extremely purestage of the internet where people were just makingstuff for the sake of determining curiou stuff.There was no chance it was gonna go viral to them, but it did. -( FBE) Finally, we justtalked about videos that croaked viral beforeYouTube, who is currently arguably the most knownway to go viral. – Yeah.-( FBE) So do you think any of these videos, if they were released today would have gone as viral? – I don’t think they would.There’s so many videoson the internet now, it’s so hard.Back in the working day, there was so fewon the internet that the quality thresholdwas so low-pitched. – There’s no one type of videothat goes viral now and I think that’s whya lot of these videos wouldn’t necessarilygo viral because they are of one class, which is absurd humor. – I think it dependson the platform and I conceive the dancing newborn, candidly, I would watch that right now, but I don’t thinkit does impression for YouTube.- We’re so long formaton YouTube. I mull a lot of the stuff, you’re right, are now working perhaps Vine format. – Probably not.Probably it would just be in the wash of stuff.- I don’t think any of those would go viral, but it doesstill happen where amazingly funny and quirky contentdoes vanish viral like Bill Wurtz’s Historyof the World, so I have a lot of hopethat different versions of this, better, jug, newer versionscan still vanish viral. – Thanks for watchingthis episode of YouTubers React. – Be sure to subscribeto all the creators in this episode.The links are in the description. – Goodbye, be safe. – Hey people, Vartuhi now from FBE.A immense thank you to all the YouTubers that came outto shoot with us.
