Origin

The above video was put on Youtube on September 15, 2009 by a Youtuber of the username “alonzochadwick”. The video is of alonzo’s sister sitting on the toilet and repeating the phrase “sitting on the toilet”. The video currently has more than 8 million views, and its view count is still growing. His explanation as to why he posted the video on Youtube is as follows:

This is not me it is my Friend & Sis (Nonnie). Nonnie posted a picture of me on Myspace 2 years ago. I told her I would get her back. She uses my flip camera all the time and used it to film all of her video’s\that are on her page (Which her user name & page is “eedabc123”). She used my camera to make this video apparently, and she forgot to delete it from the camera. Thus led to the posting of this video (THE ULTIMATE REVENGE) Ahahahaha.

He goes on to explain that he never thought the video would go viral. Of course, as evidenced by the many links regarding the video and the derivatives, it has.

Links in the web

In November of 2009, the video nearly exploded onto the internet. There were two Urlesque articles relating to the video, a post on the blog of Tosh.0, the Comedy Central show, a mention on RayWilliamJohnson’s show “=3” in the video Drunk Ewoks and many other references. The mention on =3 popularized the meme quite a bit, more so than others.

Derivatives

The video spawned numerous remixes, as well as other videos of people attempting the song while sitting on the toilet.

Where it’s going

The early November spike likely has to do with a large reddit thread, a repost of the video from November 5, 2009 [attributed to Youtuber RayWilliamJohnson (see “Links in the Web”)], as well as the Tosh.0 blog post.
