According to Fadwiki, this fad began with “THIS VIDEO CONTAINS WIN” which was a video created by a Swedish YouTube Pooper McMaNGOS who is known as one of the originators of YTPMV phenomenon. This video consisted of a static image of Dr. Robotnik from a TV anime series The Adventures of Sonic The Hedgehog with a clip of Robotnik saying “Pingas!”, sequenced to the song Gourmet Race from Kirby Super Star, 1996 Kirby video game by Nintendo.
Though the original video which was first uploaded on May 4th, 2008 was deleted later. There are many reprints complemented by other YouTube poopers.
However, Chewiki notes that it is highly regarded as the first YTPMV.
The style of this video soon became being mimicked by many other YouTube poopers, and they call videos with the snowclone “THIS VIDEO CONTAINS X”. There are hundreds of videos in this YTPMV series on YouTube.
