"Are You Sure About That?" is a memorable quote uttered by wrestler John Cena in a hidden camera prank video. The scene was later adapted as a green screen and inserted in other videos and memes.


The original video was uploaded on June 29th, 2016 on Cricket Wireless' YouTube channel, featuring a hidden camera prank riffing on Unexpected John Cena. In the prank, individuals thought they were auditioning for a chance to introduce John Cena. Cena then appears in the scene with his theme music playing. One of the scenes features Cena ripping the paper and shouting "are you sure about that?" The video gained over 13 million views in the following two weeks.


On June 30th, 2016, YouTube user UFKinWotm8 uploaded a video of just Cena saying the phrase with just a green screen for a background and no other noises.

After the clip and its isolated green screen variation hit YouTube, dozens of YouTube and Vine users began inserting Cena saying "Are You Sure About That?" into various other videos. One of the most popular YouTube edits inserted Cena into the famous clip of President Bill Clinton declaring he "did not have sexual relations" with Monica Lewinsky when he in fact had.

The trend was prevalent on Vine as a joking way to call into doubt what someone in a separate video is saying (Vine compilation shown below).
