While fancams existed prior, on October 9th, 2014, YouTuber pharkil shared a fancam that received more than 30.2 million views in less than five years (shown below).

The earliest mention of "fancam replies" on Twitter was posted on November 23rd, 2018 by Twitter user @ghoulip (shown below). They wrote, "A*mylands thinkin their stolen cousin jokes hit harder than ours when they just get three likes and twenty fancam replies captioned w loonarmys follow me."

Over the next year, commenting on these replies more common. For example, on July 11th, 2019, Twitter user @track11sea tweeted, "this is the live action ver of a fancam in the middle of a twitter argument thread." The tweet received more tahn 26,000 likes and 12,000 retweets in less than four months (shown below).

On July 31st, Mashable [2] wrote a piece on the replies.

On October 8th, Redditor [3] hitlergrapefruite posted about the replies in the /r/OutOfTheLoop subreddit. Redditor Lisbethy responded:

answer: it's a trend in kpop stan twitter to reply with any kind of fancam as a comeback, sometimes to up the views in the original video, to promote their idol/group, to prevent/cease an argument or just to plain annoy you, or even all of the above. sometimes it can even be disrespectful, but honestly, it's really not that deep.
