All Your Base is 20


20 years ago today, Bad_CRC dropped the music video for "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" on Newgrounds, and "All Your Base" suddenly transformed from a mere forum in-joke to full-blown viral meme.

Internet Archive, of course, has the original Flash and the original MP3.

    Sweet! Between this and Scanners turning 40, it's a great year for classic memes.

    We missed the chance to make jokes about "All Your Base is 0x10" in 2017.

    Nearly got fired for gaining access to our company's intranet and applying that meme to its homepage and navigation... as a late-night joke. The head of IT called me in a panic to revert the changes, because he in turn had received a panicked call from one of the VPs.

    The VP was asking if we had been hacked, and if 'somebody set up us the bomb' should be interpreted as a bomb threat. Similar panicked complaints soon followed from other coworkers, and what started as an amusing prank soon turned into a mild shitstorm.
