Is There A Doctor On This Flight? is a dialogue snowclone which grew popular on Twitter in late 2019 which people use as a vehicle to make self-deprecating jokes about their profession. In the snowclone, a flight attendant asks if there's a doctor on the flight, and then a father nudges the person posting saying "That should've been you." The dad then makes a joke, telling the poster to go and see if a thing relating to their job will help.
On November 22nd, 2019, Twitter account @thedad posted the first iteration of the joke, using "YouTuber" as the profession in the punchline. The tweet gained over 10,000 retweets and 59,000 likes (shown below).

User @Sererano__ tweeted an example in which she turned out to be useful, gaining over 590 retweets and 8,300 likes (shown below, right).
