[[caption-width-right:350:...and grabbed lazer guns and rocks."]]

A common trope in animation, but known to occur in live action. The main characters of the cartoon run towards the camera and jump in unison, putting on their most ridiculous smile and holding their hands in the air. Sometimes a bright light inexplicably appears behind them. The scene freezes while they're all in midair and is used as a splash screen for something. May or may not combine with a PastelChalkedFreezeFrame. Frequently an ending. In more realistic works, the characters might freeze while doing something we would actually expect to see in our own lives, like joyously hugging or throwing their hats in the air. (Or, at the other extreme, the characters might self-consciously milk the trope for all its humor by doing something funny, such as flashing the "Ta-da!" or "jazz hands" gesture [[LeaningOnTheFourthWall at the audience]].)

This trope was ridiculously common in movie endings in TheSeventies. ''Film/{{Rocky}}'' did it most famously, but it managed to sneak into the endings of more serious films too.

Likely as often as not nowadays to be parodied or deconstructed, usually with GravityIsAHarshMistress coming into play.

Not to be confused with the [[MemeticMutation *glasses*]] '''''[[CSIMiami YEAHHHHHHHHHHHH]][[TheWho HHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!]]''''' [[QuipToBlack Shot]].

(And just for laughs, the sister-in-law greedily reaches for a wing just before the freeze.)
* TheNeverEndingStory 3 ends with this, as Bastian and his new stepsister do a YEAH! high-five, facing away from the camera, and depicted in silhouette thanks to the lighting from beyond them.

[[folder:Live Action TV]]
* The made-for-TV-movie adaptation of Creator/StephenKing's ''TheLangoliers'' which, strangely enough, is completely accurate to the original novella.
* Season 1 finale of ''Series/RobinHood'' ({{BBC}}).
* ''MiamiVice''.
* Parodied in ''Series/ThirtyRock''.
* ''Series/MightyMorphinPowerRangers'' had this at the end of the first episode, at the end of the five-part "Green With Evil" saga, and at the end of the two-parter "Doomsday" saga, with the team putting their hands on top of one another's hand, then jumping up, shouting "POWER RANGERS!". Granted, the "Doomsday" one was meant to have been the end of the series, but you all know how that went...
* Parodied at the end of ''ABitOfFryAndLaurie'''s Australian soap opera sketch, where instead of freezing the frame both actors hold their wacky poses and facial expressions throughout the episode credits, visibly wobbling as they get tired.
* Done by ''SherlockHolmes'' of all people, at the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4NxlEtc-lg end of Granada's adaptation of The Second Stain]], but with skipping and "wa-heey!" instead of "YEAH." [[PastelChalkedFreezeFrame He then turns into a drawing of himself]].

** Also parodied in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' when Homer attempts it with a bowling ball.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Tabletop Games]]
* ''MagicTheGathering'': Used in [[http://www.wizards.com/mtg/images/daily/events/ptdka12/sat_304.jpg a photo]] from the official coverage of Day 3 of the Pro Tour: Dark Ascension tournament; it's a group shot of the Top 8 all in mid-jump.
** Not shown: Kibler's infamous tiger hat.
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Video Games]]
* The FirstPersonShooter ''VideoGame/Wolfenstein3D'' did this at the end of the first boss level after you beat the big chaingun dude Hans Grosse, and again after you beat Gretel Grosse, Hans's sister, as well as on any custom map including an endgame tile.
* Used in the Subspace Emissary in ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Brawl'', mainly by {{Mario}}, [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Link]], VideoGame/{{Kirby}}, Yoshi and Pit. They appear up a cliff when some {{Mooks}} try to attack some other smashers, and after an AssKickingPose they all jump and the camera freezes. This image of the characters (still looking triumphant) becomes the character selection screen. There are similar shots during the entire storyline, but this one is the most notable.
** Preceded by the intro of ''Melee'', which included a fast camera pan and YeahShot of all of the Pokemon up to ''VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver''.
* The MMORPG ''AsheronsCall'' is a unique case that lets you make your own: by using the emote command @atoyot, your character jumps into the air with a raised arm, and freezes there indefinitely until you press any movement key. "Atoyot" is clearly an 80's-era SdrawkcabName reference to the commercials mentioned above in the Advertising section.
* ''VideoGame/SonicTheHedgehog'' has your playable character do this at the end of the first three games jumping towards the screen before striking a pose to the player. The ''Sonic Advance'' titles followed suit
** While it tapered off sometime during the 3D era ''VideoGame/SonicAdventure 1'' has it at the end of [[AnotherSideAnotherStory both]] Sonic's story and Tails' story (and in Tails' case he shows the [[CharacterDevelopment character growth]] he experienced throughout the game by flying ahead of [[TheAce Sonic]] to do his pose to show that he has become confident in his own abilities rather than always playing second fiddle to Sonic).
** ''VideoGame/SonicHeroes'' has it as its title screen and, [[AndTheAdventureContinues its ending]]. Seeing as it was a visual (if not gameplay) throwback to the ''Sega Genesis'' games. This time the PowerTrio of Sonic, Tails, and Knuckles do it at the same time.
* Beating an opponent in ''[[CapcomVsWhatever Xmen vs. Street Fighter]]'' will cause the background to fade to black, your character to freeze frame on whatever animation they're doing at the moment, and a large X or Z to frame around them. Particularly cool if you are Cyclops or Wolverine.
* ''VideoGame/GoldenSun'': The Lost Age does this prior to the end credits with the two main characters and Kraden.
* ''Videogame/JablessAdventure'' ends with Jables giving the princess a high-five. IrisOut, roll credits.
* The true ending of ''[[VideoGame/{{Contra}} Contra: Shattered Soldier]]'' has this, though the characters are shown jumping toward the crowd instead of the camera and they don't shout "YEAH!"
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Comics]]
* Appears in ''WebComic/TheAdventuresOfDrMcNinja,'' with the Doctor and Judy using an explosion to highlight their high five.
* {{Waterworks}}: "We're gonna steal the [[http://mspfanventures.com/?s=43&p=602 water cycle!]]
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Web Original]]
* The short-lived video series ''CaptainS'' had one of these at the end of its first two episodes, following the line "Let's all get shakes!"
* Pictured above is a machinima of ''[[Fanfic/HalfLifeFullLifeConsequences Half-Life: Hero Beggining]]'', proclaimed by LaResistance after their leader declares war on the Combines.
* The second episode of ''{{Mega64}}'' ends with one of these. [[spoiler:Then, "12 minutes later," Marcus jumps up and has one by himself.]]
* Seems to be a common theme in wedding pictures that appear on [[http://wedinator.icanhascheezburger.com/ Wedinator]].
* One RoosterTeethShorts sketch revolved around one of these, followed by the participants' increasingly panicked reactions to the fact that they're all frozen in midair
** The [[MilestoneCelebration 100th episode]] of Creator/AchievementHunter's ''[[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterMinecraftSeries Let's Play Minecraft]]'' ends with the AH team's ''Minecraft'' characters jumping in the air.
* Lyle and Dexter in ''SanityNotIncluded'''s Season 1 finale, only with a High Five instead of a "Yeah!"
* Elementanimation's "An Egg's Guide to Minecraft" parodies this at the end of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Klc728qggic Part 7]].
--> '''Villager:''' That's not normal, is it?
[[/folder]]

[[folder:Western Animation]]
* ''WesternAnimation/FilmationsGhostbusters'' did this on a regular basis.
* "Go, Team Venture!" (Both {{lampshaded}} and played straight, depending on the episode of ''WesternAnimation/TheVentureBrothers''.)
* Used at the end of the ''SpongeBobSquarepants'' episode "Band Geeks" with Squidward, and at the end of TheMovie with Spongebob.
* Lampshaded by ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'' in "Chickenlover", when it happens twice with Officer Barbrady. The first is the apparent culmination, when Barbary has learned to read and delivers a one-liner that now that he's solved the case, he's going to "curl up with a good book", and he gives a thumbs-up and freeze-frames, cheesy music blaring. But no one ''else'' is freeze-framed, and they all stare puzzled at Barbrady before eventually all just wandering off. Later, in the actual conclusion, Barbrady comes to the conclusion that reading is awful after plowing through ''Literature/AtlasShrugged'' and deigns to never read again, causing a cheer among the boys, and on this, they DO genuinely freeze-frame in the Yeah Shot.
* ''WesternAnimation/FamilyGuy'':
** Parodied in one episode, where at the end of an instructional video the pair of newscasters said "yeah," jumped in the air and froze at the appropriate moment.
** Parodied again in the episode "Stewie Kills Lois" where three people jump merrily and freeze after hearing healthy facts about Total cereal.
** In "Business Guy", Peter does the Yeah! Shot, can't get down, freaks out, and tells Lois to call a scientist.
** In the A-Team episode, Peter and his friends, after shooting down a tree to rescue a kitten, have a celebratory freeze frame...until the owner of the tree screams at them to get off his property.
* When the censors told the staff of ''InvaderZim'' they couldn't just kill a kid at the end of a certain episode, they had him awaken from his wreckage and do one of these instead. Complete with cheesy guitar riff. [[labelnote:*]][[foldercontrol]]

[[folder: '''IGGINS!!''' ]]
[[/labelnote]]
* Done with the Darings at the end of ''TheReplacements'' episode "The Majestic Horse".
* ''FishHooks'': FRIENDS!
* ''TUFFPuppy'' does this at the end of each episode. In the pilot, the characters are flung into the air by an action-y event, and freeze in mid air to put goofy faces on. This then becomes a photo on a case file/end title.
* ''{{Jimmy Two-Shoes}}'': Jimmy does this twice in one episode, freezing in mid-air. However, no one else does, and they're left wonder how he does it.
* ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'': Lampshaded in an episode, when they do the shot, someone asks when they are going to unfrezee, and someone else says "a few more seconds..."
* ''WesternAnimation/RegularShow'':
** They do this at the end of "Rage Against the TV" with a group high five.
** Twice in "Fuzzy Dice" with a group high five. One in the middle of the episode and one at the end.
** Done near the end in "A Bunch of Gesse".
