You Just Got Hey Stinky'd refers to a bait-and-switch video featuring a video of Mario, specifically his sprite from Super Mario RPG, dancing to a version of I.Y.A.Z's Replay composed by SilvaGunner. The video begins with an image of Mario over a black screen, followed by a soundbite of Mario saying, "Hey, Stinky!" from Mario Party 7. The image of Mario then zooms out, the song plays, and the bottom-text, "You Just Got Hey Stinky'd!!" is revealed as Mario performs the Club Penguin dance.
On July 25th, 2020, YouTuber SilvaGunner uploaded a video titled, "Slider (July 29, 1995 build) – Super Mario 64," referencing a popular conspiracy theory about a 1995/07/29 build of Super Mario 64 (shown below). Rather than the song titled, the video contains a version of I.Y.A.Z's Replay, remixed to sound like a song from Mario 64. The video garnered over 253 thousand views in under 3 months.
On July 31st, Twitter user WinterImpact posted an original animated video of Mario performing the Club Penguin dance, including custom sprite-work to show Mario sitting and moving his arms (shown below). The animation was taken by one of WinterImpact's friends and made into the first, "Hey Stinky" meme.

I know many people will say this is copied from someone else on YouTube. I got this video from Instagram. I posted the video before anyone else did. I found the shorter version and posted it. Others may have found the longer version somewhere else. I did not copy this from YouTube
