You Should X / X:, also known as X Is So Good / X:, You Gotta X / X:, You Should Play X It's So Good / The Gameplay:, or You Should Watch X It's So Good / X:, refers to a phrasal template that makes fun of video games, movies and TV shows using Hood Irony, Hood Lobotomy and Greenscreen Silhouette videos to show an ironically low-quality Hood Irony Dramatization of the game's gameplay or the show's plotline/episodes. The trend started with a meme about the anime One Piece in which a Pirate Irony video was labeled as episode 30 of One Piece. The trend spread across TikTok in early 2023, eventually spreading to Twitter, Instagram and iFunny, among other platforms. Eventually, continents and countries were also made fun of, resulting in so-called "Continent Irony." Many of the TikTok memes also used the He Was Running From A Cop Car sound effect.
On March 8th, 2023, TikToker @hoodmemes.john2024.v8 posted a video that used greenscreen silhouettes and the There Be Treasure sound effect to generate a Hood Irony video that built on the Casino Irony trend. The video received roughly 525,900 plays and 113,400 likes in one month. On March 29th, 2023, Twitter user @kickfliptomboys reposted the video, pairing it with the caption, "One piece fans: it has a slow star but you'll definitly be hooked by episode 30 / Episode 30:" Over the course of three weeks, the tweet gained roughly 4,800 likes (shown below).
