* While the trollface meme as we know it did indeed begin with the famous comic, the facial expression itself of the squinted eyes and the smile turned up at a corner is a trademark of ErnestPWorrell. It took off in the context of {{troll}}s from the movie ''ErnestScaredStupid'', in which Ernest makes the face while teasing an actual troll, but it isn't always used when he's trying to annoy someone, and it predates the comic.

* Matt and Pat of ''TwoBestFriendsPlay'' turned the phrase "Do you know how many [object] I have to [verb]? More than you'd think, and less than you'd hope," (and its many, many variations) into a RunningGag. They first used it in their ''Soul Caliber V'' video, which they uploaded on February 26, 2012. In a July 2013 video of a ''Deadly Premonition'' playthrough, they noticed that one of the characters in the game says, "I know more than you'd think, but less than you'd hope." ''Deadly Premonition'' was released in 2010. Matt and Pat were flabbergasted to realize they'd been unwittingly copying ''DP'' that whole time.

* YoutubePoop was preceded by some of the YTMND fads (for an example, You Forgot Poland) which featured random pictures, lots of SensoryAbuse and became more elaborate as the time went by.

* Many people like to believe that Epic Rap Battles of History invented fictional characters or celebrities rapping as a novelty. Not quite... [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCDXeJGCiWg MC Hawking predated the battles by several years AND actually sounded like Hawking.]] And a rapping Hitler? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o0PDJor8-YY Whitest Kids U Know did it several years before they did]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4zpYQJkBQp0 Mel Brooks did it back in the 80s!]]

* Long before the internet-famous [[{{Lolcats}} LongCat]], there was a similarly long Siamese cat in an episode of ''Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus'' eating Killer Cars and normal buildings (would that make it a Tacgnol Esemais?).

* Aarrgh!! Those amateurs all over the Internet who make LeaveTheCameraRunning video's about their private life that nobody is interested in. Sure this phenomenon never existed before the Internet was invented, right? Well... already in the 1960s Creator/AndyWarhol was making movies in which a shot of the Empire State Building was shown for 24 hours straight or a man was just eating for minutes on end. Also take in account many of Music/JohnLennon and Music/YokoOno's albums, which often feature a lot of audio footage of them fooling around by making weird and often annoying sounds or them expressing their love for one another.
