The original Cuppycake YTMND was one of the first YTMNDs ever created, made by the site’s original owner Max Goldberg. The gif used in the site is a (quoting YTMND wiki) “character from a Japanese children’s book by Hirose Takuro.” Its name is Nekopan, and is commonly referred to as “Kittyloaf”, as it looks like a loaf of bread with eyes, a mouth, and cat-like ears. The site currently has more than one million views (making it 17th most viewed all time), and is in the YTMND Hall of Fame. The site spawned a large amount of imitators, including (but not limited to):
- CUPPYCAKE in reverse
- COUNTRY CUPPYCAKE GUMDROPS
- CUPPYCAKE GUMDROPS will eat your soul!
- Cuppycake, pictographic edition
- Cuppycake Gumdrops: Death Metal Version
- Cuppycake goes home
- Cuppycake Gumdrops: Catloaf crosses into the real world.
- Vader Loves Cuppycakes
The searches spiked in early 2007 due to the fact that the original video was posted to Youtube in November of 2006, and again in October of 2008 as the Cuppycake Sam video was featured then.
