About

EPIC Maneuver is a popular YTMND meme dating back to July 2006, after a user named “airbornebryan” uploaded an animated gif of Geordie (Star Trek: The Next Generation) doing an overly dramatic roll to evade capture, accompanied by equally gravitating BG music--“Ghost Love Score” by the Finnish power-metal band Nightwish.

A typical “epic maneuver” usually involves a short action footage that is deemed unnecessarily/comically theatrical, whilst the Nightwish song is played in the background to further emphasize the epic nature of maneuver.

Notable Cases of Epic Maneuvers
