There has been an increasing number of media sightings since YTMND's inception, much of it due to the fact that the site's humor is heavily influenced by pop culture and current events.
On June 27, 2005, Reuters wrote an article on Tom Cruise which made a reference to the Tom Cruise Kills Oprah YTMND. The site received further publicity when The Wall Street Journal published an article about YTMND, and mentioned several popular website creations, linking to many of them through their website. The original "Tom Cruise Kills Oprah" video, on which the YTMND is based, was mentioned on Dateline NBC's "The Mank Blog" segment, VH1's show "Web Junk 20", and CBC Newsworld's The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos.
