The End of the World (first uploaded as End of Ze World) is a flash animation created by Jason Windsor (a.k.a Fluid). Debuting in 2003, the video has been dubbed by several news publications as "the first viral video."


The flash video was first uploaded to Albino Blacksheep on October 30th, 2003 and credited to user Fluid (shown below).[1]


The video quickly became a viral hit. It was posted to Funnyjunk and remained atop the trending videos chart for several weeks. It was also popular on eBaum's World. [6] Its script was posted to Roosterteeth in 2005.[4] It was uploaded to YouTube shortly after the site's creation and has gained over 16 million views in twelve years.[2] The video became known for a few notable catchphrases:

  • 'Hokay so here's the earth
  • Damn that is a sweet earth, you might say
  • But I am le tired… Well. Then. Have a nap. THEN FIRE ZE MISSILES!
  • WTF, Mate?
  • Those Chinese sons of a b*tches are goin down

Several of the quotes were added to Urban Dictionary in the mid-2000s.[5] Twelve years after the video was posted, its creator, James Windsor, revealed himself in an interview with Mic.[3] There, he mentioned that the video had helped kickstart his career in animation and filmmaking.

It was covered by internet-centric media outlets, including Select All,[7] The Verge,[8] and Gizmodo.[9]

Meh, the original one was better. This one is too politically charged, and it does not seem like it has much of a comedic intend compared to being an actual political opinion disguised as an animation.

Poor man's "history of the entire world, i guess", basically.
