- "You Fucking Stole my Cloudsong!"
The Cloudsong fad was one of the most interesting fads during the Summer of 2005. The fad was born on June 28, 2005 under the title "I OWN THE VNBOARDS!!". This first site was did not get many views but the Cloudsong fad got popularized by the second submission called "Wow is serious business" one of the first of the Serious Business sites.
It is also the second highest viewed site not in the hall of fame (after pi) and one of three sites not in the hall of fame with over a million views (along with 3.14 and Ninja works it). The site shows an image from World of Warcraft along with dialogue of a player screaming at another fellow that he stole the former's magic cloak, or "cloudsong". Due to the amount of explicit language in the dialogue, many Cloudsong sites are nsfw'd.
A major misconception was created due to the site as the dialogue was actually for another MMORPG called Dark Age of Camelot. Since that site though, most cloudsong sites usually involve the WoW image used in the original. After the original ytmnd, sites slowly began to rack up before it was officially called a fad. Sites will play around with the dialogue, sometimes remixing it to other songs. Other times, the dialogue would be added in various TV/movie scenes. The original site has racked up over one million views.
In case you're wondering what exactly a "Cloudsong" is. Here is a link to the aforementioned item in the Allakhazam database. http://camelot.allakhazam.com/item.html?citem=13278
