About

“Dis Gon B Gud” is an expression often used in forums or comment threads to denote that the poster is going to enjoy watching a complex argument or discussion topic unfold. The phrase has been also iterated in the form of a reaction GIF featuring a man opening up a fold-up chair and getting ready to sit down.

Origin

The phrase “dis gon b gud” can be seen as an ebonics translation of the colloquial expression “this is gonna be good,” which is typically used to convey a sense of excitement and anticipation towards an impending spectacle or event. The GIF animation of a man opening a folding chair was taken from a scene in the music video for Ron Browz and Jim Jones’ rap single “Pop Champagne,” released on September 4th, 2008.



The first GIF instance was uploaded to Threadbombing[2] on February 16th, 2010 and meant to be used by spectators in a heated online debate or argument, similar to popcorn-eating reaction GIFs.[4]



Spread

The GIF was posted to the Body Building Forums[3] on February 21st, 2010. The phrase was used as the title of a May 2010 article posted on celebrity gossip blog Oh No They Didn’t.[6] In 2011, the GIF was sought out on the IGNforums.[7] Its first known appearance on 4chan was on January 6th, 2011[5] in an archived /v/ (video games) thread featuring badly drawn Sonichu art. While most often used in discussion forums[8], the phrase has been also used as the post title on Reddit[9] and as a Tumblr tag.[10][11] The original GIF can also be found on several repositories including HilariousGIFs[12], GIFs Forum[13] and Reaction GIFs.[14]
