This goes in Meme Research.

And how would YouTube comments make something a meme?

Why not?
anyway i see it all the time on failblog vids

I’ll get back to this later.
By later, I mean tomorrow.
Tomorrow afternoon, btw.

Actually, yes it has. It usually goes in the form of “Did X die?” for example “Did the lizard die” ,“Did the robot die”, “did the house die”, or “did the sky die”. Also on several occasions there is the phrase “Did he live?”

So yes, it has both imitation and mutation and is a meme.

Yeah it could me, like boctor said there are variations of the phrase. Also basically just saying did X die with X being something in the video. Usually when they just repeat did he die or whatver it gets annoying, but when people are creative it can be rather funny.

I’ve seen this becoming steadily more popular of a phrase. More of an internet slang thing though.
A quick Google search yields only a couple pictures of interest. No image macros.

I always see this “Did X die” on Keyboard cats comment…

“Did treadmill die?”

“Did grape die?”

“Did Haley die?”

I still dunno why…

@Ice Cream Lover

It’s either because of the fact that Fatso (Keyboard Cat’s real name) is dead or because people like spamming that phrase, being the trolls they really are… or both.

I found this on a YouTube video:

“Why does she died??!!!!” (Yes, I seriously copypasta’d it from YouTube.)

I dunno…I thought it might go in this thread for the lulz.

I see this a hell of a lot in comments on almost every single Keyboard Cat video on Youtube.
and yeah, it’s usually in the form “did x died”" (but it’s purposely written as “died” so saying “did x die” is wrong)

I’ve definitely seen lots of “did he die” comments spammed on videos. It’s most noticeable in videos where there’s no reason to suspect that anyone died. Finding an origin will be difficult because of how common the phrase is. But there’s enough of it out there to prove that there’s a meme.

There’s even a single topic blog.

Revived the meme entry from the deadpool. Still needs work.

If ur talkin bout Billy Mays then yes… yes he did =(

(Also note that this is a Copypasta of the Above Post.)
