About

Admin, He's Doing It Sideways, also known as Phoon Too Much for Zblock, is a viral frag (or kill) video of a Counter-Strike player named Phoon expertly playing the game. The title implies that his ability outmaneuvers the game's server plugin that is designed to level the playing field.

Origin

On January 28th, 2010, the video "phoon -- too much for zblock" was uploaded to the website Youku.[1] The video has since been removed.[5]

The earliest available video of the post was uploaded several months later. On October 17th, 2010, YouTuber eBATEY published a video entitled "CSS : phoon too much for zblock [FULL HD] bunnyhop fragmovie" of Phoon playing Counter-Strike: Source The video (shown below)received more than 4.3 million views in eight years.



Spread

On March 5th, 2016, YouTuber Fiery published a video recreating the video. The post (shown below, left) received more than 15,000 views in two-and-a-half years.

Two weeks later, Redditor [2] GANKUTSUOU_ asked: "Too much for zblock means." Redditor Proc31 responded:

"zBlock is a server plugin for Source engine based games (like Counter-Strike: Source), which attempts to level the playing field by enforcing potentially exploitable CVAR values of all connecting clients. It also locks some server variables and displays their current state to joining clients and in server queries (i.e. HLSW), and it tries to prevent clients from joining with altered sound/script files which aren't protected by Valve's sv_pure mode."

There was a version of zblock that made bunny hopping significantly harder. Phoon is making the point that even after the zblock update he can still do it. It is not an anti-cheat as some people are saying.

Several months later, YouTuber Hungry posted a reaction video (shown below, right). The post received more than 890,000 views in two-and-a-half years.



On May 14th, 2017, Redditor[3] Fuckface1337 posted the video in the /r/videos subreddit. The post received more than 400 points (81% upvoted) and 85 comments. In the thread, Redditor caliform wrote:

For those not in the know: zblock was a set of updates to the way players could move in Counter-Strike which was meant to defeat the 'bunnyhop' – a way where you could jump around the level extremely quickly (which was absolutely not an intended movement in a somewhat serious counter terrorism game).

Phoon was exceptionally skilled at defeating zblock and killing people in very creative ways thanks to his extremely unexpected movement speed or ability to get to parts of the map normally impossible to access.

On August 12th, 2018, Redditor[4] UncleSpoons posted the video to the /r/mealtimevideos.
