Michael Gerard "Mike" Tyson, also known as Malik Abdul Aziz, (born June 30, 1966) is a retired American boxer. He was the undisputed heavyweight champion and remains the youngest man ever to win the WBC, WBA and IBF world heavyweight titles. He won the WBC title at just 20 years old. Throughout his career, Tyson became well-known for his ferocious and intimidating boxing style as well as his controversial behavior both inside and outside the ring.
The Mike Tyson fad is a relatively recent one, the images taken from a trailer for the 2009 film "The Hangover." In the trailer, Mike Tyson is seen in a hotel room air drumming the drum solo from Phil Collin's song "In the Air Tonight." The original YTMND site by mcroix showed Tyson doing the drumming motion synced to the song "September" by Earth Wind and Fire to make it appear like he was dancing enthusiastically. Spinoffs soon followed, including Tyson: Sushi Chef by VinzClortho, Mike Tyson Stereotypes by SilverDollar, Tyson Drumsticks by fearcondom, 3 inches of Tyson, by fuckingtest, and perhaps most popularly Mike Tyson: Insane Difficulty Unlocked by Habibo. There are also several other sites involving Mike Tyson, though not related to this image/fad.
