Origin

On January 22nd of 2006, YTMND user Syncan uploaded his site Chunk Is Indestructible, which now has more than one million views.

The first part of the gif is composed of a scene where Patrick Stewart is shooting a gun, from the movie Star Trek: First Contact. Stewart was already popular on YTMND, known for his role in Star Trek: The Next Generation as Captain Jean-Luc Picard of the U.S.S. Enterprise. His place in YTMND history was further solidified with the Picard Song – an enormously popular site – in 2004. By 2006, he was incredibly popular on YTMND, and many sites used him for any reason at all. This site is an amazingly popular example of Jean-Luc’s YTMND fad.

The second part of the gif used is a scene from the movie The Goonies in which the character Chunk does the “Truffle Shuffle”. The dance was already prevalent prior to the fad.

The song used in the original YTMND is “Feuer Frei” by the German band Rammstein, from their album Mutter. This is one of their most-bought songs on iTunes. The title of the song fits well with the gif, as it means “Open Fire!” in English. The single of the song peaked in Germany at 33, and in the United Kingdom at 35.

The fad

The original site currently has more than a million views, currently the 22nd most viewed all time YTMND site. It is also in the YTMND Hall of Fame. The site spawned numerous spinoffs.
