* Possibly the example with the shortest amount of time, [[YuYuHakushoAbridged Lanipator]] had to put up a disclaimer that he did not steal the "Neighborhood Watch" joke from ''WebVideo/NarutoTheAbridgedSeries''. In fact, he used it first, and Naruto Abridged used it as a homage to him. Which should be obvious, considering the neighborhood watch van is clearly from Yu Yu Hakusho (given its art and color style)

** Possible actual example: during his ''WesternAnimation/{{Animaniacs}}'' tribute, the Critic appears to attribute TheSmurfettePrinciple to WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick. TVTropes had an article on the topic ''long'' before she touched it, and we didn't invent it out of whole cloth either.

* Shit Pickle and Super Ultra Mecha Death Christ 2000 first appeared in an animated short film by JamesRolfe called ''TheWizardOfOz 3: Dorothy Goes to Hell''. However, they're usually thought of as characters from ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'', where they made cameo appearances.

* 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.

Not to mention [[UsefulNotes/TheSilentAgeOfHollywood silent-era]] cinema in the Soviet Union, such as ''Film/ManWithAMovieCamera'', which were quick scenes of ordinary people doing ordinary things.

* 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.
