“Yes! Yes! Yes!” was first featured in the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventures manga series in the hundred twenty-fourth chapter of Stardust Crusaders, which was first published on September 30th, 1991, under the title D’Arby the Player.
Interestingly, a similar meme; Yes! Yes! can be linked to the 1995 Street Fighter animated series, uttered by M. Bison.
This became a trend in YouTube remixes starting in 2007, leading many JoJo fans to ask themselves around this time: Is That a JoJo Reference?
“Yes! Yes! Yes!” gained a larger prominence in 2015, when on May 8th, the anime adaptation of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure featured the scene the Season 2 Episode 42, titled The Mist of Emptiness, Vanilla Ice, Part 1.
A clip of the moment was uploaded to YouTube on May 22nd, 2015, by Sora & Nors with the title YES YES YES YES YES, garnering a large audience.
