* '''[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOpGCGtCVsE WILL GRIGG'S ON FIRE!!!]][[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUlSmCGj1r8 YOUR DEFENSE IS TERRIFIED!!!]]'''[[labelnote:Explanation]]Northern Irish footballer Will Grigg had a break-through season with Wigan Athletic during their 2015-16 season, scoring 28 goals in 43 games in all competitions. In recognition of that, one Wigan fan, Sean Kennedy, uploaded a video of him singing Italian singer Gala's song "Freed from Desire", which he titled "Will griggs on fire". Kennedy replaced the words "Freed from desire/Mind and senses purified" from the actual song into "Will Grigg's on fire/Your defense is terrified". Needless to say, the song quickly went viral, becoming a popular chant worldwide (especially in Grigg's home country, Northern Ireland), and saw extended use by Northern Irish fans during the Euro 2016 even though Grigg didn't play a single game during the Euros. Kennedy would later receive a free Wigan 2016-17 season ticket from Wigan's chairman David Sharpe as a reward for the massive success of the chant.

* "You've just won the SuperBowl. What are you going to do next?" "I'M GOIN' TO DISNEYLAND!!!" This one became an advertising slogan for the Ride/DisneyThemeParks.
** And made it into Disney/{{Aladdin}}: "You've just won the heart of the princess! What are you going to do next?"
** Super Bowl? Orel Hershiser said it after the Dodgers won the 1988 World Series.
*** Phil Simms at the 1987 Super Bowl was first (according to the OtherWiki). Note that it wasn't spontaneous - he was paid $75,000 to do it.
*** As would John Elway have been, had the Denver Broncos won instead.

* NO ERA PENAL![[labelnote:Explanation]]Mexican for "it wasn't a penalty". During the Round of 16 in the 2014 World Cup, Mexico were beating the Netherlands 1-0 with 2 minutes to go when the Dutch pulled a goal back. Deep into injury time, Arjen Robben was fouled in the penalty area, and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar converted the resulting penalty to put the Dutch through 2-1. The Mexican fans were ''furious'', and immediately accused Robben of having dived. Robben later admitted that he had gone down too easily, but felt that it was still a penalty.[[/labelnote]]
