About

I'm A Brave Boy refers to a series of reaction image macros featuring a clip from the YouTube channel JonTronShow of host JonTron saying "I'm a brave boy" while holding a sword. In many instances, the clip is used in a three-panel meme, showing JonTron saying "I'm a brave boy," followed by a humorous or absurd image, and finally, a screen capture from the same clip of JonTron throwing the sword and uttering "not a brave enough boy for this." The same format has been used in a series of video remixes.

Origin

On November 29th, 2014, YouTuber JonTronShow published a video entitled "Plug and Play Consoles – JonTron." In the video, JonTron plays a video game entitled Brave Boy. He starts the clip saying, "I'm a brave boy." The video cuts to a clip of the game in progress, then back to JonTron saying, "Not a brave enough boy for this!" Within four years, the video received more than 21 million views (shown below).



Spread

Shortly after the video was posted, various users on FunnyJunk began using the two parts of the clip as a reaction video. On December 19th, users revisempai and hankhillofthe both used the clips in response to a Thomas the Tank Engine meme (shown below, left).[1]

On November 25th, 2015, YouTuber Tako Bee posted a edited version of the clip, replacing the shot of Brave Boy with a shot of the video game Undertale. The post received more than 2,700 views in three years (shown below, right).

On March 11th, 2018, Redditor [2] DIOgenes_123 posted a three-panel image macro of the clip, replacing the Brave Boy shot with an image of a billboard that reads "Uploading video regularly" on it. The post received more than 1,400 points (99% upvoted) in less than one years (shown below).
