Since entering online circulation in May 2005, the video has been widely used as a popular material for bait-and-switch trolling, while spawning hundreds of remixes, parodies and music video tributes.

The music video was created by two animators at Slackcircus Studios, who were inspired by Eric Fensler's G.I.
