“Disrespect Your Surroundings” is a caption adopted by a series of macro images and GIF’s. The phrase has various uses, but it’s most common context is to describe a person or groups of people behaving in a wild and disruptive manner, and often involves the destruction of property. Alternatively, it has been used to describe an individual rapidly spinning their arms.
The phrase ‘disrespect your surroundings’ was first used during the bridge of the song ‘Mr Highway’s Thinking about the End’ by rock/metal group A Day to Remember in 2008. The band would often shout out the phrase to provoke the crowd to begin moshing intensively.
The first instance of the phrase being used in an image was in this GIF created by Tumblr user Curse Of The Jaguar on the 24th of April, 2011. The image received more than 17 000 notes.
Following the popularity of the original GIF, numerous similar images were created and spread across Tumblr.
