About

It Was Made For Me! This Is My Hole! refers to an exploitable meme and redraw template that uses a panel from Junji Ito's horror manga The Enigma of Amigara Fault. The panel shows a bespectacled man clamoring into a man-shaped hole in a cliffside as he says, "This is my hole! It was made for me!" The panel has been a popular redraw template since at least 2008.

Origin

Japanese manga artist Junji Ito's short story The Enigma of Amigara Fault was first published in his 2002 horror manga Gyo.[1] The plot follows an earthquake that reveals several human-shaped holes on the side of a fault. As people travel to see the spectacle, they realize that the holes were specifically made for individual people. They then become hypnotized into going through their holes, emerging months later on the other side of the mountain, hideously deformed.

The original unedited panel for the meme template can be seen below.


IT WAS MADE FOR TH- THIS IS MY HOLE!

The manga became popular on 4chan's /x/ (supernatural and paranormal) board for the hilarity of the various awkwardly translated quotes, such as:

"It's slowly coming this way!"
"Drr…Drr…Drr."
"This hole was made for me!"

Some early memes and redraws using this panel can be traced back to the year 2008, with a Spongebob parody of the panel being posted to Something Awful forums on March 9th, 2008 (seen below, left).[2] A Pokémon parody of the panel was posted to Encyclopedia Dramatic on July 23rd, 2008.[3]
