About

Aye, I Could Do That refers to a scene in Lord of the Rings: The Return of The King in which, approaching the final battle, Gimli says, "I never thought I'd die fighting side by side with an elf." Legolas replies, "What about side by side with a friend?" to which Gimli replies, "Aye, I could do that." The scene was turned into an Object Labeling exploitable to show two groups, usually opposed, fighting against a common enemy.

Origin

Lord of the Rings: Return of the King was released on December 17th, 2003. The scene takes place before the climactic battle meant to distract the armies of Mordor while Frodo and Sam attempt to destroy the Ring of Power (shown below).



Spread

On January 24th, 2014, MemeCenter[1] user MikeKink1216 posted an exploitable edit of the scene with Legolas and Gimli labeled Xbox and Playstation, respectively, and they are fighting an army labeled "PC."
