Duck Army is a video in which a hand pressing down under a shopping cart filled with squeaking duck toys all at once, causing a loud echoing noise.
On August 30th, 2015, YouTuber Kevin Synnes uploaded footage of himself pressing down upon a shopping cart filled with plastic squeaking ducks, producing a sound as if the inanimate toys were echoing a loud battle cry (shown below). Within two days, the video gained over 3.9 million views and 1,400 comments.
That day, Redditor The-Respawner submitted the video to /r/videos, where it received more than 5,700 votes (95% upvoted) and 1,200 comments in 48 hours. Shortly after, Viner Charlie Murphy reuploaded the video, which received upwards of 68 million plays, 163,000 revines and 15,7000 comments in the first two days. Also on August 30th, YouTuber uǝsıɐʃoʞıᴎ sɐǝɹpu∀ uploaded a reversed version of the video, which subsequently reached the front page of the /r/videos subreddit (shown below, left). Meanwhile, YouTuber Trill Phill uploaded a mashup of the duck army audio with the 1978 disco song "Le Freak" by Chic (shown below, right).
On September 1st, the Mirror published an article about the online reaction to the video. Meanwhile, MTV posted a compilation of notable remixes from Vine.
