What happens in SEIZURE TIME
Seizure Time is a popular internet fad that is very common among Pivoteers – People who make Youtube accounts and post videos of Pivot videos of their animation – in their video’s short intermission. It depicts a stick-man dancing, usually accompanied by techno/rave music as the background and the stick-man’s color is being inverted repeatedly in every frame.
Sometimes it may not be inverted but instead very bright lights flashing in different colors. This is also popular in YTMND.
Take note that this is highly similar to Party Hard

Seizures Involving Animes/TV Shows/ETC.
In an episode of “The Simpsons”, the family travels to Japan. While at their hotel, Bart watches a deleted show in the US due to seizures. After watching, the whole family start to have seizures
The banned show that caused the family seizures
A scene from Family Guy specifically the famous “Bird is the word” scene shows Peter spazzing out for a few seconds after singing the song, although it’s not really having a seizure but some people on YouTube think so
With the same scene, someone also made a Geddan reference.
A YouTube user compiled scenes of Naruto including a part of the intro where the main character, Naruto Uzumaki screaming while the YouTube user inverted and changed the color scheme of the intro.
Dangers of SEIZURE TIME
Although watching the all the flashy stuff on the internet, do be warned that watching too much of these can cause seizures or Photosensitive epilepsy.
In Late 1997 when the Pokémon episode “Dennō Senshi Porygon” (aka “Electric Soldier Porygon”) was broadcast in Japan, showing a sequence of flickering images that triggered seizures simultaneously in hundreds of susceptible viewers (although mass hysteria caused 12,000 children to report seizure-like syndromes). A YTMND user made this scene into a loop and called it “Porygon Seizure” which can be found here
In March 1997, the 25th episode of an anime series called YAT Anshin! Uchū Ryokō had a similar incident when a reported four children were taken to hospitals by ambulances when a scene with red and white colors flashed.
In March 2008, the Anonymous group of hackers was claimed to be behind an attack on a forum for epilepsy sufferers. The hackers, part of Anonymous blamed the Church of Scientology for the attacks saying they were made to hurt their image. The attack consisted of GIF images flashing at high speeds that were hidden in threads with innocuous-sounding titles. The technology website Wired News considers it to be the first physical attack on Internet users.
