Congratulations! / Omedetou! is a line repeated by several characters in the final scene of the 1995 anime mecha series Neon Genesis Evangelion. The scene is noted for being very underwhelming and monotonous due to the repetition of the word in such a short period of time. Online the line is used to mockingly give praise to someone, and is generally accompanied by insincere clapping.
The original scene aired in Japan on March 27th, 1996, while the dubbed version aired in America on April 13th, 2006. On March 20th, 2008, the English dub version was uplaoded to YouTube by YouTuber Iseths (shown below).
On November 2nd, 2011, YouTuber ostolero uploaded a video titled "Congratulations! You Won!" mashing up the scene with audio from generic online sweepstakes scams (shown below, left). On February 13th, 2014, YouTuber Ryan Pollard uploaded the final video in their Rog and Tyrone series which was done in a parody of the final scene of Evangelion, and gave a particular point of making the "congratulations!" part overly absurd (shown below, right).
