"The Pest" is a 1997 comedy film starring John Leguizamo, which found a resurgence in the /tv/ board of 4chan in early 2016.


The Pest was released in 1997 to very poor reviews, for its immature humor and Leguizamo's performance, and became a forgotten 90s comedy.


In January and February of 2016, users of the /tv/ board on 4chan started to pick up on the film, due to being a poorly received 90s film, and started to ironically call the film "cinema" and "kino" (German for Cinema), and daily threads were dedicated to spamming quotes from the film, such as "stinky dinkins". This practice has become known to the members of the board as Pestposting.
One very notable scene is the intro, involving the main character singing in the shower, showing his disguises and jokes based on racial and ethnic stereotypes.
