It would been a "meme" or viral video by today's standards, but I vaguely remember it from back when YouTube was first gaining traction.

It isn't really a "Movie" and it would never have been on "TV" (that I know of)

Can I ask for help in finding it (or the title of it) here?

Personally, I'd be inclined to say no for a few reasons.

  1. Music videos and commercials are specifically out of scope per the help center. I would lump random YouTube/Internet videos in that same general category.
  2. The community appears to be trending away from accepting questions per other Meta posts like this one.
  3. Meme videos are endlessly derivative. You might want help identifying the Star Wars Kid, but you saw version X and I'm describing version Y. The general description matches each time, but you never get what you want because I can't find the exact version you want.

That being said I think there is some gray area with some Internet videos.

Personally I would say popular web series like Red vs. Blue would be on topic for identification/questions in my opinion however because there is a continuity, and the series does loosely emulate a narrative comedic TV show.

I would call other popular web based series like Strong Bad and/or Funny or Die off topic for identify questions, and information questions. The clips are generally short and stand alone. Similarly I think questions are off topic for TV shows like America's Funniest Home Video, or The Price Is Right for the same reason.


I purposefully chose older references here because the OP was talking about an older Internet video.

    Regarding Red v. Blue: they have seasons, and I can buy the discs for each season the same way I can buy the discs for a season of e.g. The Simpsons. They may not be on broadcast TV, but they essentially work the same way. – user9311 Oct 30 '15 at 22:34
