This rising popular quote was first found popular because of a certain YouTube video involving the popular video game title, ‘Dark souls.’ by the YouTuber ‘GrimDisaster’
within this YouTube video the player was attempting to mess around within other peoples worlds within the game, and trying to confuse them. running around and flailing his arms about harmlessly while the other players either stood there in confusion or tried attacking the invader. one of these victims whose gamertag (iCo1dnwar) really had been confused, and even sent the YouTuber a message over the Xbox asking,
“Why are you doing this?” in utter confusing so we can guess.
this phrase came to be quite the popular one within the video’s comments section. being posted multiple times by multiple users. with this, the phrase itself had spread out and found its ways into many different gaming scenarios, where others would post comments such the phrase ‘Why are you doing this?’ when the player was doing somewhat similar actions or other confusing and pointless actions within the game.
though, the earliest external use of this phrase was nearest to the posted date of the video was posted on the popular website Reddit, by a user that goes by ‘dalollypop.’ after the initial posts, he phrase found its way to many other sites such as 4chan posts and such other forums and message boards.
and since been seen along many other posts and games, most commonly dark souls videos, as it is mostly popular within the dark souls community and those who have heard of it.
