Let's Go Mets is the fan chant for Major League Baseball's New York Mets. Online, it has been parodied as something a stereotypical New Yorker might say, leading to parodies in which fictional characters unexpectedly begin saying phrases like "Let's Go Mets, baby, love da Mets!" This grew particularly popular on Twitter after user @SkurletonVA performed a parody as Kingpin from Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse.
While "Let's Go Mets" has been Mets fans' chant since the team's inception in 1962, the phrase began seeing use in parodies online thanks primarily to a September 22nd, 2015 tweet from @nycguidovoice that read, "matt harvey and his fuckin whuore motha should have dere kneecaps broken in da trunk of a Cadillac. lets go Mets baby love da mets," gaining over 480 retweets and 1,000 likes (shown below).
On July 18th, 2019, Twitter user @iking_ posted a parody showing Kingpin from Spider-man: Into the Spider-verse saying the phrase. The tweet appears to have been deleted, but was reposted to iFunny on September 20th, 2019 (shown below, left). The tweet led to some further parodies where other characters repeated similar phrases. For example, on November 6th, user @everrrrlong posted a parody with the @nycguidovoice avatar as Guts from Berserk, gaining over 550 retweets and 1,500 likes (shown below, right).
On September 5th, 2021 Twitter user @SkurletonVA posted a voiced parody of Kingpin saying "Let's Go Mets," gaining over 9,200 retweets and 38,000 likes (shown below).

This helped turn "Let's Go Mets, love da Mets!" etc. into a copypasta on Twitter in which people would add it unexpectedly to the end of their tweets, similar to the A Drive Into Deep Left Field copypasta (examples shown below).
