Many people have taken this phrase and used it in a variety of contexts. For instance, this phrase can be used to express a feeling of disappointment about something. Perhaps a person was ashamed or embarrassed to have watched a video, or they followed a link to a spoiler they didn’t want to see. Quoting Adam Jensen, the reply goes, “I never asked for this”.


This catchphrase originated from the Deus Ex Human Revolution trailer. The main character Adam Jensen says this with regard to his augmentations.

People saying “X never asked for this” (With X being someone or something) Has existed much longer than this video game, past the internet, past this century. This isn’t a meme, it’s a catchphrase.
