"DURR PLANT" is a sarcastic phrase originally spoken by YouTube personality I Hate Everything in response to the "Damn Daniel" meme to make fun of its frivolous nature.
On February 23th, 2016, YouTuber I Hate Everything (IHE) uploaded a video in which he discusses the popularity of the "Damn Daniel" clip and goes on to explain why he disapproves of it in his usual outspoken fashion. At the 2:45 mark of the video, in a sarcastic attempt at demonstrating the senselessness of the "Damn Daniel" meme, IHE likens the crux of the joke to a clip of him pointing his finger at a plant and yelling "Durr Plant!!!" in a dopey accent (shown below). Within the first 48 hours of upload, IHE's "Damn Daniel" rant video accumulated more than 728,000 views.
In the following hours, several parodies and remixes of IHE's "DURR PLANT" gag began surfacing on YouTube and Vine, with the earliest known instance sampling the soundbite uploaded by Viner Yoshi The Lion (shown below). In less than 48 hours, the Vine clip garnered over 12,000 loops. The vine was later deleted. That same day, Redditor Infinite901 created a dedicated subreddit for parodies and remixes of IHE's "Durr Plant" clip. On February 24th, YouTuber YeloPartyHat uploaded a remix of The Duck Song featuring the soundbite.
On March 3rd, IHE created another video discussing DURR PLANT, and joke thieves. The video received over half a million views in 3 days.
