Xyro's upload of the episode said "Thanks, M.A. Larson, no really"; and it's been all over Twitter. And it all came from here, didn't it?

In other words, we created a meme. A better meme than "Love & Tolerate the shit out of you". A better meme than anything that's come out of SA proper in years.

I'm so proud of this place. :allears:

Now I'm wondering if anything from the YouTube CC thread will catch on.

I think the key to all of this was Larson really liking it on Twitter. Maybe the article on it enhanced that a bit, but it was really Twitter recognition.

The fact that Larson himself was sporting one of our campaign buttons speaks rather strongly :vogue:

Aw man, I'm going to enable spoilers just so I can catch threads like this when they first pop up. This was some hilarious reading and I'm kicking myself because I couldn't be a part of it.

Well, Pixelkitties made those (and designed the button), we have nothing to do with it.

I remain consistently astounded at how far this went. There are people -here- that didn't know it started here, and yet we had pretty much the entire show staff talking about it on Twitter and a KnowYourMeme article mentioning us.

All I did was have a half-assed idea with no starter image. I'd have gotten probated or banned for it on SA. :pinkieshrug:

The "I believe in MA Larson" button was made by someone else, as Cosmo said above, but even his appreciation of the Thanks MA Larson meme speaks to the fact that he was at the epicenter of the controversy and it's about his own work so it resonates pretty strongly with him. On this forum, where the more irrational expressions of rejection were largely absent, it just smacks of smug, self-congratulatory mocking of those dumb bronies.

There are a lot of things on this forum that smack of smug, self-congratulatory mocking. This is not one of those things.

Wylie suggested it in this thread back on Jan 31st, steering a "thanks Obama" takeoff into an idea that would specifically call out M.A. Larson:

Wylie wrote:
We need a "Thanks, M.A. Larson!" thread in the style of the "Thanks, Obama!" gifs.


It was that decision that got Larson retweeting it, and then it got moving on its own momentum beyond here.

Jesus Christ, that was only two weeks ago?

This is the first time this ever happened. I mean, I avoided the spoiler clips, and waited until it was available in HD without watermarks... I even watched it twice to make sure.
Sorry, but

MA Larson challenge if he is reading this: get the word rupture in future episode of pony. Doesnt matter how or the context.

I'll be listening and awaiting!

Is it retro yet to make MA Larson gifs?

Can't completely remember who in the thread thought of this idea (I think it was Wylie), but now we have to make .gifs of good things happening due to Twilight the alicorn, where we unironically thank Larson.

I really want to see this happen.

Yes, the meme has evolved and is no longer squirtle. Stop treating it as squirtle.

Are there any vectors of Princess Twi's flight towards the camera? I have an idea, and it doesn't involve old video games for once. :ponder:

As fantastic as it would be, I think there's a null chance of any major show people like writers or VAs joining the forums. They're forbidden from reading fanfics, and I imagine their tweets are closely monitored by Hasbro to make sure no info gets out. A forum is inherently harder for Hasbro to moderate, and I honestly wouldn't be surprised if they're not allowed to join one. I'm not saying it wouldn't be nice, but unless they join incognito I doubt it'll happen- they're probably stuck being lurkers, and we're not big enough to be noticed.

That being said, I'd love to be proven wrong. :pinkietoot:

Back in the Bad Old Days™, Lauren, Craig, Don Shank, and some other production people on Powerpuff Girls would post on the PPGworld forum. Not too often, but occasionally.

Dave Polsky does follow us on twitter, though, so that's something. :pinkietoot: And Andy Price too.

Plus, we have comics people posting on our comics forum! :excite:

What if they're lurking here, right now? They're browsing this forum for feedback and to watch silly things happen, and then they'd see all the things we post, things like my big post in the finale thread, and if you'll excuse me I'm going to jump out a window now
