About

"Witness Me" is a catchphrase spoken by the characters known as War Boys in the film Mad Max: Fury Road before they commit a kamikaze-type act in battle. The phrase has become popular in online forums as a way to draw attention to one's post.

Origin

Mad Max: Fury Road was released May 15th, 2015, and during the film, the phrase is spoken frequently by the War Boys, a group of leukemic children of the villain Immortan Joe. The War Boys usually yell the phrase after spray painting their mouths silver and before attempting to die by suicide in battle, which they believe will send them to Valhalla, or heaven. In some scenes of the film, they pair the phrase with "We will ride eternal, shiny and chrome!"



Spread

The first use of WItness Me on 4chan's /tv/ board actually occurred 5 days before the release of the film, by a poster who was claiming that he'd seen the film and that it was good.[2] Since then, the phrase has been used about 2,200 times on various 4chan boards, often times paired with a variety of images of different characters with chrome sprayed around their mouth, including Pepe the frog.[3] Alternately, the phrase was often paired with mugshots of people who had been inhaling spray paint as a drug, which can cause the person to appear as if they had sprayed themselves in the face. The phrase is used as a comment on various other Mad Max-related memes, including the official Mad Max subreddit, /r/madmax, which calls its readers War Boys and indicates their presence by saying they are "WITNESSING!"[4] In addition, there are 122 different works of art on DeviantArt using the term.[7]

On May 23, 2015 a link was posted to r/WTF which featured an image of 2 adult males, one with his mouth painted silver chrome using car spray paint with the title "YOU WILL ARRIVE AT THE GATES OF VALHALLA, SHINY AND CHROME!", the link received 4531 upvotes and 668 comments[8]
