I'm Banishing You To The Shadow Realm is a quote from the 2021 YouTube video "The ENTIRE Model Series Timeline of Thomas & Friends – Every Major Event from Seasons 1-12 in Order" by The Unlucky Tug. The scene is used as a redraw or exploitable meme and inspired several YTP-styled edits in the latter half of 2021.
The original video was posted to YouTube by The Unlucky Tug on June 11th, 2021. In the scene, The Unlucky Tug talks about Sir Handel's disappearance until season 10 of the show and included a joke scene of Sir Topham Hatt sending Sir Handel to the "shadow realm," a concept popularized by Yu-Gi-Oh! (shown below).
On June 13th, 2021, the clip was taken from the video and reposted to YouTube by O Face, where it received over 1.2 million views in five months (shown below).
On July 9th, 2021, Twitter user Nictrain123 posted an edited version of the original clip where Sir Handel banishes Sir Topham Hatt to the shadow realm using a reverse UNO card. Nictrain123 soon followed with an epilogue scene on the same day, receiving over 340 likes in four months (seen below).
