The origin of this meme came from the following clip of Mystery Science Theater 3000. In the clip, Rocky, a crew member of the Bacchus 3, believes that the lastest recruit, Ken, is really a Wolf Raider, an elite enemy soldier from the planet Valnastar (in truth, Ken actually was a Wolf Raider until he accidentally killed a fellow soldier). To prove this, Rocky attacks Ken with a forklift, with Ken using his super strength to stop the attack. What follows is an instrumental piece that Joel, Tom, and Crow sing along to, with it ending by having them sing “He tried to kill me with a forklift”.

Original Clip


The song is considered one of the most popular things to come out of MST3K, and many videos and pictures have been made on the internet
