About

Confession Kid is an advice animal image macro series featuring a photograph of a young boy performing a facepalm hand gesture. The captions typically contain confessions about naive and embarrassing childhood beliefs.

Origin

On April 27th, 2013, Redditor Notmiefault submitted an image macro titled “Confession Kid” to the /r/AdviceAnimals[2] subreddit, recollecting how he used to believe as a child that automatic doors were controlled by an unseen person viewing a surveillance camera (shown below).



Confession Bear

The image macro series bears some resemblance to its precursory advice animal character Confession Bear, which is used by Redditors to confess taboo behaviors and controversial opinions that are often kept secret for fear of being ostracized.



Spread

The same day, Redditor ballplay3 posted an image macro revealing he thought the moon had followed him as a child to the /r/AdviceAnimals[3] subreddit (shown below, left). Within the next 48 hours, the post gained more than 1,100 up votes and 20 comments. On April 28th, 2013, Redditor spacecruise submitted an image macro with the caption “I thought my ballsack / held my pee” (shown below, right) to the /r/AdviceAnimals[4] subreddit. In the first 24 hours, the post garnered upwards of 8,900 up votes and 190 comments.



The same day, the viral content site BuzzFeed[2] posted a compilation of notable examples from the series. On April 29th, the Internet news blog UpRoxx[5] posted an article about the meme.
