The meme originated from a photo taken of Edgewise while he was attending a Shackmeet. The original picture depicted him standing in a room of otherwise excited people with a somber expression on his face while playing Guitar Hero(?). notd665 brought Kentor's photoshopped picture to everyone's attention, while DrWaffles later provided the template which was used to generate a small mountain of content in the span of a few days.
The meme reached it's zenith on October 17th, 2009, when ThomW made this shackmeet post. Since this post contained maximum funny, and anything else would be downhill from there, the meme was never used again.
