From where I’m sitting, this internet meme of throwing together the same quote one hundred times in a single clip began with Sawyer (Josh Holloway) from Lost and his catch-phrase, “son of a bitch.” It has since been applied to Jorge Garcia’s Hurley and his favorite word, “dude.”
Now it’s branching out into cross-platform, cross-property clip mashing for phrases that permeate entire genres. One example is this clip, which features quite a few uses of the phrase “get out of there.” It’s worth four minutes of your time. Because lets face it, some college kid skipped several classes to put this video together. And it’s far better than doing four minutes of actual work at your day job.
