Domino Effect, also known as Slippery Slope, is an image macro series featuring a photograph of a man pushing the first tile in a row of domino pieces that gradually increase in size. The images typically feature object labels illustrating how a small initial event may eventually cause significant consequences.
On October 4th, 2009, YouTuber Stephen Morris posted an educational video showcasing a chain reaction of falling dominoes that subsequently increased in size (shown below)
On July 24th, 2018, Redditor  rabbitflyer5 posted an object-labeled version of the image in the /r/PrincetonPhysMemes subreddit (shown below).
In December 2018, a still image of Morris preparing to set off the chain reaction gained popularity as an object-labeling meme. On December 6th, 2018, Redditor liamowen30 posted a labeled image to /r/dankmemes subreddit. Within two weeks, the post gained over 21,700 upvotes.
On December 7th, 2018, Redditor anarchy-retreat reposted liamowen30's image to /r/MemeEconomy, encouraging to use it as a meme template. The post gained more than 36,400 upvotes over a two-week period.
Later on the same day, Redditor RottenMind62 posted an expanded template to /r/MemeEconomy (shown below).
Following the popularity of the initial posts, other versions of the meme appeared on /r/dankmemes and other subreddits, Instagram and other social networks.
