SigSig Emoticon YTPs is a YouTube Poop video fad started by YouTuber Mowtendoo which involves pairing up a video clip slowly zooming in on a subject’s face and the Beatmania track SigSig by a Japanese composer Kosuke Saito. The videos are typically titled after various ASCII emoticons that correspond with facial expressions worn by the subjects.
Mowtendoo uploaded the original video titled “:D” to YouTube on March 1st, 2012. Within three weeks the video accumulated over 44,000 views.
The same day the video was uploaded, Mowtendoo tweeted a link to video to Terry Crews.

On March 3rd, user BadaBoomBadaBang posted a link to the original Mowtendoo video in a “funny pics and videos” thread in response to a YouTube poop reply in the Tale WorldsMount&Blade Warband video game forums.
