"Coincidence? I think NOT!" is a phrase which originates from the 2004 animated family film The Incredibles. The scene became a popular reaction GIF and the phrase is often added to other images and GIFs to convey suspicion over the link between two incidents.


On November 5th, 2004, The Incredibles was released. The movie includes a scene in which Dash Parr's teacher Bernie Kropp tries to prove that he has been putting tacks on his chair during classes. He notes that in the recording of the class, Dash moves suspiciously right at the moment he sits down, leading to the memorable quote.
