Pictures of this guy have been floating around for a long, long time now. Anyone got more?

Apr 08, 2009 at 11:43PM EDT

I’ll continue to post more as I find them, but does anyone know where this originates, or even what it is called?

I’m finding lots of use of him on Ebaumsworld forums and Something awful, but almost every image has a different title.

Apr 08, 2009 at 11:59PM EDT

Common titles so far include…
dancing freak,
hardcore dancer
cat disco
dance fail.

This guy is a meme of some sort. Variations of the image are widespread among thousands of forums on the internet and I have a feeling he’s been around as long as people have been shopping images. More research is needed.

because i respect the work you are tying to do, i will share (unfortunately purely anecdotal) evidence that the skanking girl i first saw popularized in the photoshop contests circa ’06… possible link there?

The skanking chick is called Mosh Girl, think it’s 2005-ish -- pretty epic exploitable, here’s a good shooping thread I found:

Don’t know a name for that guy though. yet :)

Oh, this is how. About an hour ago Redspear posted “he” in this thread and then deleted his post.

So Redspear, what’s your idea here?

Also, we need to make it so that threads with 0 posts delete themselves. People have set up a few ones with no posts so somebody can exercise “This thread is now about X”, myself included. It was only funny the first few times.

i was trying to say “here is an example of a forgotten goal” by it failed and then my network connection timed out.

We became much more interested in Mosh Girl

Still would be nice to figure out who that other guy is though.

Nov 20, 2009 at 12:21AM EST

Haha! As soon as I saw the image at the top I thought “This needs a mosh girl remix”.
Lo and behold, what does the second post contain ;)
Loving it.

edit: And this has so blatently gotta be called Caturday Night Fever.
