Oprah's "You Get a Car"

About

Oprah You Get a Car is a series of video remixes and advice animal image macros parodying an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show in which the entire studio audience is given a free car. Many of the parodies mock the phrase "you get a car," which was repeated by the talk show host several times during the episode.

Origin

On September 13th, 2004, Oprah gave away new Pontiac G6 cars to the entire audience attending her show (shown below).[3]



On May 15th, 2005, the giveaway was parodied in Season 1 Episode 12 of the stop motion animated television show Robot Chicken (shown below, left). On March 22nd, 2008, YouTuber merese uploaded an animated parody of the car giveaway (shown below, right), gaining more than 29,000 views and 90 comments in the next five years.



Spread

On April 24th, 2008, YouTuber Ryazilian uploaded a music remix of the giveaway footage (shown below, right), which received over 575,000 views and 900 comments in the following five years.



On December 25th, 2012, Redditor Lite_It_Up submitted a post titled "Merry Christmas everybody!" to the /r/AdviceAnimals[1] subreddit, featuring an image macro using a screen capture of Oprah accompanied by the caption "You get an upvote! / and you get an upvote! / and you get an upvote! / Everybody gets an upvote!" (shown below, left). Within three months, the post gained upwards of 700 up votes and 10 comments. On January 15th, 2013, Redditor BlankRuneWork submitted an image macro to the /r/AdviceAnimals[2] subreddit, joking about each of his children getting the flu (shown below, right). In the following two months, the post accumulated more than 8,500 up votes and 270 comments.


YOU GET AN UPVOTE! AND YOU GET AN UPVOTE! AND YOU GET AN UPVOTE! EVERYBODY GETS AN UPVOTE!!! YOU GET THE FLU! 2004 AND YOU GET THE FLU! AND YOU GETTHE FLU EVERYONE GETS THE FLU
