That's Another One For Apocalypse Bingo is a reaction image featuring animated character Kronk (played by Patrick Warburton) from the 2000 comedy film The Emperor's New Groove. The image is typically used to describe 2020’s apocalyptic events, adding another one to the imaginary “apocalypse bingo” anytime a disaster, major world event or otherwise negative news story is released. The meme began appearing on a number of social media platforms after the 2019-2020 coronavirus pandemic around March 2020.


The original clip that the meme is pulled from is seen during The Emperor's New Groove, released on December 10th, 2000, specifically the scene where Yzma and Kronk are out searching for Emperor Kuzco. During the clip (featured below), Yzma can be seen frantically running from a swarm of bugs as Kronk, equipped with quill and paper, notices a bird perched on a vine. Approaching it, Kronk says, “Oh, look. A golden-throated small-winged warbler. Just one more for exotic bird bingo. I am loving this.” Although the meme uses a still from this scene, Kronk never actually says the quote, “That’s another one for apocalypse bingo.”


The first meme using the reaction image was posted on March 18th, 2020, by Redditor[1] toxicpenguin9 to the r/memes sub under the title, “So we had a 5.7 earthquake in Utah this morning.” The post (seen below) received over 148,000 upvotes, 1,500 comments and numerous Reddit awards.
