WTF: All Of Your Base Are Belong To Us?

Mon Dec 22, 2003 9:43 am

Can anyone please explain to me 1) what the hell this is all about and 2) what kind of drugs the creator was taking?

If I remember correctly, it comes from an old video game that was originally made for the Japanese market. When it was translated into English, they didn't get it quite right and instead of "All your bases belong to us" it came out as "All your bases are belong to us".

Now I'm not sure if this is the truth behind it but I know I've read that one more than one website.

Matt D,
This was a prequel cinematics to some early computer game (probably videogame). It was released in 80s or early 90s. The quoute "All Your Base Are Belong to Us", which was a kind of inside joke for that game, became popular. It started appearing as a joke on various websites and other places. More and more people started to use it.
So, in the start of movie under that link you given is shown the real prequel of that videogame. Later there are shown supposed examples where this quoute was written as a joke. Of course, all pictures here are faked, but there were real examples like this as far as I know.

My brother (a self proclaimed video game junkie) has a tee shirt with those two quotes on it. My reaction the first time I saw it was like yours Matt. Pretty odd overall.

Yes it is, but the quote "Someone set up the bomb" is used in nearly every public server when the bomb is planted. Of course someone is replaced by the players name.

p.s. I saw the original pic of the crash they used somewhere on A.net or Jetphotos.net

Interesting thread. I was reading through a Foxtrot comic compilation book the other day and ran across Jason telling this to his parents. I had the exact same reaction.....WTF.

I remeber that Foxtrot comic! I have it saved somewhere! I thought it was a catchy phrase and wanted to work it in whenever possible but never could. After seeing the site (the link was posted here about a year ago) it all made sense.

Sorta,,,,
