About

I Want to See You. I'm In the Barnyard refers to a series of memes using an image from the 2006 Barnyard video game in which a pig sends a text message to the player reading, "I want to see you. I'm in the barnyard." The image first became the subject of memes and reactions in February 2020, with many framing it as reading like a romantic proposition, becoming increasingly popularized as a reaction image over the following years.

Origin

In the 2006 Barnyard video game, the player will occasionally receive text messages from barnyard animals asking the player to meet them.

On February 24th, 2020, X[1] user @gloomygalleon posted a collection of these text messages, including one from a contact named "Pig" reading, "I want to see you. I'm in the barnyard," garnering over 400 likes in four years (shown below).
