Filename Threads are threads common on the imageboard 4chan, in which the posters post out-of-context images, often of animated shows like the Simpsons, Futurama, or Spongebob, and change the filename of the image to be a reference or allusion.
The Earliest Archived Filename Thread was a thread Called Subtled Filenames and was posted on /v/ on April 16th, 2008. Unlike later filename threads, the pictures weren’t based around a specific show, but instead tended to be re-titled reaction images.
Although Filename Threads are the most popular with animated shows, they can also be used with any image that is re-titled.
