About

“The Club Can’t Even Handle Me Right Now” caption typically used in image macros and animated GIFs depicting a character dancing wildly or carelessly. These images are used in similar vein of Party Hard GIF animations to express a person’s excitement, combined with an aspect of brazen defiance similar to And Not a Single Fuck Was Given That Day.

Origin

The phrase originates from the song “Club Can’t Handle Me[4] by rapper and singer/songwriter Flo Rida[1] and featuring house artist David Guetta[2]. It was recorded for the Step Up 3D[3] soundtrack, which was released on iTunes on June 28th, 2010. As of April 2012, the official video on YouTube has over 106 million views.



The song was met by positive reviews and critical acclaims, peaking at number nine on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and topping the charts in Ireland, Poland, Portugal and the United Kingdom. Reflecting its mainstream popularity, numerous covers of the original song soon emerged on YouTube in 2010 and 2011, most notably “Club Can’t Handle Me (Indian Style)” which has over 11 million views as of April 2012.

Spread

One of the earliest instances of the phrase paired with an animated GIF was posted to Tumblr in April 2011 by fapitalism[5], who used a scene from the American children’s television show Blue’s Clues.[6] Over the course of a year, the post[7] accrued over 125,000 notes.



The Blue’s Clues image was reposted on Reddit[8], Smosh[9] FunnyJunk[10], and the Lolbrary.[11] Other images with the same caption can be found on Tumblr[12] and Cheezburger.[13]
