All Right, Gentlemen! (also known as “Alright Gentlemen”) is an exploitable comic series illustrating three business men’s reaction to various proposals. The comic begins with the announcement of a brainstorm session on a videogame-related topic, followed by a panel showing an incomplete idea which is met by unimpressed silence and concludes with a panel depicting a slightly improved version of the previous idea that is met with enthusiasm, similar to the format of Reaction Guys comics. The comics are often used to criticize the business practices of video game and tech companies.
The exploitable panels come from a comic published on the Livejournal webcomic blog Hiimdaisy on April 6th, 2009. The comic mocks the unoriginality of the boss characters’ names “Boss” and “Big Boss" featured in the video game Metal Gear Solid.
On June 4th, 2012, GamerRage forum member Vynstein submitted a thread titled “All right, gentlemen! We need…”, which included a template for others to create edited variations of the comic. On the following day, Redditor Callan-J posted a comic titled “Pretty much sums it up”, which mocked the repetitive gameplay in the Call of Duty video game franchise. Within two weeks, the post received over 9,800 up votes and 490 comments.

Also on June 5th, FunnyJunk user kleip submitted a comic titled “All right, gentlemen!”, which featured the three businessmen reacting to themselves becoming a new meme (shown below). Within 13 days, the post received over 3,200 up votes and 145 comments. On June 7th, the Call of Duty comic was submitted to the Something Awful Forums by user MailboxFullOfBombs.
