For Five Minutes is an object labeling exploitable taken from a scene in Shrek 2 in which Shrek yells at Donkey to stop some activity "for five minutes." In the exploitables, Shrek and Donkey are labeled different groups, and in some edits, Shrek has glowing eyes photoshopped onto his face to show his anger.
In Shrek 2, released May 19th, 2004, Shrek, Donkey, and Fiona are traveling to the kingdom of Far, Far Away. On the carriage ride, Donkey is being annoying, causing Shrek to yell at him, "For five minutes could you not be yourself? FOR FIVE MINUTES!"
Prior to becoming an object labeling exploitable, the scene saw use in YouTube remixes. For example, an ear rape edit posted by dat boi on August 22nd, 2016 gained over 200,000 views (shown below, left). On September 23rd, 2017, user MeMyselfandPeter posted a remix of the scene mixed with Man's Not Hot, gaining over 18,000 views (shown below, right).
On July 18th, 2018, Tumblr user Baron-o-greato posted multiple examples of a 2-panel exploitable template they made of the scene (examples shown below).
The Twitter edit of the template was the first to grow popular. On August 14th, 2018, Baron o Greato posted the Twitter edit to KnowYourMeme where it gained over 270 points. The following day, it was posted to Twitter by user @seclusiveblue where it gained over 1,200 retweets and 3,400 likes. After that, the meme began growing popular on Reddit. On August 28th, 2018, user sleppypiggy posted an example referencing the American Civil War to /r/historymemes, gaining over 90 points (shown below, left). The same day, an edit using Germany was posted to /r/MemeEconomy by user WilleBweendeuh, gaining over 60 points (shown below, right).
