Subscribe to TheFW on

To those of you who aren’t in the know (possibly because you have actual lives), we offer this video, which provides the original context for some of the internet’s more popular memes.

The “And It’s Gone” Guy, Futurama Fry, Condescending Wonka and more are shown in their original, glorious splendor, before they were turned into image macros and paraded all over the internet. To quote video creator HatinHand, “Context. Context everywhere.”
