Original YTMND:
Worthy spinoffs:

The fad was started in 2002 in SomethingAwful, and migrated to various other sites including A site was created prior to the first ytmnds called which was a classic-styled ytmnd complete with a picutre of Ackbar, the text "It's a Trap" coming out, and the sound clip of the scene from Star Wars: Episode VI Return of the Jedi. After ytmnd was established, the Ackbar fad migrated to the site.

Ackbar sites can be done in one of various ways

  • Other characters saying "it's a trap" such as Solid Snake, Frank Burns from M*A*S*H, Peppy Hare from Star Fox (e.g. Solid Snake).
  • The quote used to describe something as a possible trap (e.g. The Superdome during Katrina)
  • Remixed with another song (e.g. Rap Remix)
  • Sometimes, Ackbar's quote may come randomly in another site without warning (e.g. Enraged Cake)

Recently though, a medley of various characters saying "It's a Trap" including Ackbar has been used for trap sites.

Despite not being as popular as other fads like Picard, Vader, and Milton, Ackbar will often show up in conglomerate sites.

Family Guy's 2010 parody of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi is named "It's a Trap!" The name was possibly inspired by this YTMND fad in addition to Ackbar's line itself.
