Il vento d’oro (English: Golden Wind) is the main theme of the 2018 anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind (JoJo Part Five). Fans began calling the song Giorno’s Theme because it is frequently heard in scenes where the protagonist Giorno Giovanna is about to defeat an opponent. The theme's piano passage in particular, known as Giorno’s Piano, inspired memes about it being a sign of imminent defeat. Since mid-to-late 2019, the theme itself has been used in a variety of videos, covers, and parodies.


The anime JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind began airing on October 5th, 2018. Its soundtrack[1] was released on December 19th the same year. On the same day, the anime’s main theme was uploaded to YouTube[2] by Golden Weed (shown below, left). The theme amassed over 98 million views in two years. In a similar period, a reupload[3] of the theme with only the piano passage received over 17 million views (shown below, right).

Could beat the villains but doesn't. Is too idealistic to use any trickery underhanded tactics which puts him at a serious disadvantage or Uses the powerful magic he was born with to trick and toy with his enemies. Always plotting his next battle-plan. Runs away if in danger. Arthritis and joint-pain make running hard. New strategy is to stay calm and safe until he finds a lethal opening. Kills mosts enemies he fights. Stripper ghost makes him pretty much unkillable. Stares into space and thinks about dolphins until you walk into his range like a retard. Not afraid of injury. Versatile powers, high speed, and healing. Literally just a monk class. May turn into a berserk psychopath on occasion. Puts himself in danger to draw out openings.

In the following days, a significant number of memes based on the joke were posted in the community,[8] including fan art based on Whatcha Got There meme.[9][10]
