"Why Is No One Having A Good Time? I Specifically Requested It" is a quote from TV series Brooklyn Nine-Nine. It is frequently used as a reaction image for when a person or entity fails to create a pleasurable situation, often owing to their own ignorance around the affected people's interests.
The quote originates from The Night Shift, the 4th episode of the 4th season of the show, which aired on October 11th, 2016. In the scene in question, Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher) is trying to cheer up his colleagues with a dull makeshift party, visibly failing to impress anyone. It was uploaded to YouTube  by the show itself as a highlight, gaining 83,000 views in five years.
The scene became a meme format a year later, with instances recorded as early as 2017, with a dead link on Tineye being traced to December 23rd, 2017. The first known surviving example of the meme was posted to the subreddit r/brooklynninenine on October 1st, 2018, as a Tumblr screenshot of Tumblr user astrollusion. The post gained 30,100 points in six months.
The meme did not make any more notable appearances until over a year later, when it was posted to r/MemeEconomy  by u/Theslyfennekinfox on November 30th, 2019, though only gaining around 200 points in six months (below, left). A more popular instance (below, right) followed on April 7th, 2020 on the subreddit r/dankmemes,  gaining 23,200 points in six months.
The meme saw continued use the following months, with one /r/memes  post by u/TheOutSider154 gaining 197,000 points in six months (below, left). Another instance posted on the same day to /r/dndmemes by u/jiggaboooojones gained 43,700 points.
