"It's Time to Stop" is a memorable quote uttered by YouTube personality Filthy Frank in an exploitable green screen video that was uploaded in late December 2015. The video, which shows Filthy Frank walking into a green screen set with an oversized clock and yelling out the phrase, has inspired a series of remix videos from his fans.


The green screen videos come from a video uploaded on December 24, 2015 by one of the alternate channels of Filthy Frank, saying that many people had asked him for greenscreens, leading to him uploading various greenscene shots to the channel and to his website for free use. The most popular greenscreen is the "It's Time to Stop" shot, which has Frank shaking a large clock repeatedly saying "It's time to stop", which received over 900,000 views in the following two months.


The first videos regarding the meme were both uploaded on December 25, 2015 by YouTubers Popsicle Juice and Creepypasta Archives (shown below, respectively), both compilations of all the greenscreens available for download from Frank's website. Within the days following, multiple edits of the scenes were uploaded to YouTube[1] as well as multiple edits of the "It's time to stop" shot[2], with the most popular video featuring the shot uploaded by YouTuber Pyrocynical on January 1 2016, garnering a little over 400,000 as of February 2016. The phrase "it's time to stop" also has multiple results on Tumblr relating to the greenscreen shot[3].

An image macro of the scene featuring Filthy Frank holding the clock with the overlaying text reading "It's time to stop" also gained usage as a reaction image, in a similar way as the Stop Posting meme. The image was also combined with various fictional characters whose abilities revolve around time, including various characters from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.
