“Holy Fucking Shit, It’s a Dinosaur!” is a parody song based on the main theme from 1993 blockbuster film Jurassic Park featuring comical lyrics performed in the voice of an opera singer. The song first became popular on YouTube in 2006 after it was paired with various dinosaur-related videos. Also see: Clever Girl
On August 12th 2006, YTMND user ALMusic produced a site taking a short segment from movie Jurassic Park in which the main characters are dumbfounded by a dinosaur walking past them. The movie’s main theme is also playing in the background, but with additional lyrics written by ALMusic to accompany the song. Shown below is a YouTube version of the original YTMND:
While the original site didn’t start a noticeable trend on YTMND aside from a handful of responses, it was generally well-received by the community’s audience with an average score of 4.65 out of 5 and more than 915,000 views (as of August 2011).
Holy fucking shit,
It’s a Dinosaur!
Jesus Christ – What the fuck!?
Oh my fucking god,
Holy shit – what the fuuuuuuuuuuckkkkkkkk!!!!
The comical song found itself in a YouTube video uploaded on November 7th 2006, when YouTuber wolfer339 parodied the same scene from Jurassic Park using Garry’s Mod:
The video inititally gained the attention of Garry’s Mod enthusiasts, received more than 330,000 views (as of August 2011) and inspiring a number of imitative videos. Another notable Garry’s Mod re-enactment was uploaded by YouTuber Nubs926 on June 16th, 2007, which became the most viewed Garry’s Mod themed version with more than 670 000 views:
X Meets a Dinosaur
On September 4th, 2009, YouTuber Silverknux1991 uploaded an anime dub video of “Holy Shit, It’s a Fucking Dinosaur” using a scene from the popular anime / manga series Naruto featuring Hidan:
Titled “Hidan meets a Dinosaur,” the video was met by positive responses in the remix circles and spawned a notable subset of parody dubs based on the snowclone “X meets a Dinosaur,” using various scenes taken from animes, movies and TV shows.
Miku Miku Dance Remixes
While the video reached a disappointing viewership of 30,000 views (as of August 2011), the dance variations took hold and people made their own renditions featuring different characters, resulting in over 40 registered video responses of what eventually became known as Dinosaur Meme. A YouTube search yields even more results.
