"breath in Boi" refers to a pair of images of the character SpongeBob from the series SpongeBob SquarePants clasping his hands together and leaning over. The images often feature image corruption similar to Real Nigga Hours, and are commonly used in shitposting. The images are also commonly used as a reaction image to various instances of people making an unwise decision.
In 2003, Nick.com debuted the Flash game "SpongeBob Kah Rah Tay Contest." In the game, SpongeBob SquarePants and Sandy the Squirrel spar in a karate match. Before they fight, SpongeBob bow (shown below). The game is the basis for the image in the meme.
The first known use of the pair of images was in a December 22nd, 2015 post in a 4chan  /fa/ (fashion) thread about a series of modified images of SpongeBob wearing a pair of boots. The post contained the image along with the words "WHO DIS NIKKA???".
On December 26th, 2015, Tumblr user icanmaketheworldhappy shared the image, where it more over 35,000 notes. The image was also uploaded to iFunny, where it gained over 50 likes.
Four months later, on March 13th, 2016, YouTuber ExplodingScrotum.png posted a text to speech voice over of the images. As of August 2017, the video (shown below) received more than 123,000 views.
Four months later, on April 1st, 2016, Redditor  Ghastily posted the image in the the subreddit /r/DemomanTwitter. The post (shown below, left) received more than 200 points (100% upvoted) in a year and a half.
The following year, Redditor dank420memes1337 posted the Rogue One: A Star Wars Story character K-2SO doing the same motion as SpongeBob. The post (shown below, right) received more than 480 points (98% upvoted).
