* The {{Creator/BBC}} published a [=YouTube=] video of [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fW94hSE3eqM the journey from Heathrow Terminal 5 to Cockfosters]] on the UsefulNotes/LondonUnderground, greatly speeded up (taking five minutes instead of about an hour),and one of the comments asked if they got the idea from another [=YouTube=] channel the commentor was aware of. They didn't; back in the [[TheFiFties 1950s]], when what is now BBC 1 used to show intermission films between programmes, one of them was London to Brighton in 5 minutes. The idea is probably older than that.

* Sadly [[http://boards.4chan.org/b/res/411047287 this 4chan board]] or {{omegle}} did not create the line, "hi, welcome to stealth," that right goes to BadReligion with their song "Stealth" off of their album ''Recipe for Hate'' made in 1993.

* 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!]]
