The Space Jam fad is unique as it originated from a 4chan video, which in turn was based on a (since take down) website created by Something Awful user L-ShapedTetrisBlock. The video showed various images of legendary wrestler Randy Savage "The Macho Man", accompanied by a remix of "Space Jam" by the Quad City DJs. The remix involved the lyrics being mixed into the MOD chiptune "Funky Stars". The remix and images both originated from the website.
The video made its way to ytmnd sometime in April 2005 and shortly became a fad. Early sites would show various people getting slammed, but the most popular variant of the fad was the ability to remix the song with other music due to its limited use of instruments other than percussion. The song has been remixed with various other fads, like lol internet, and What is Love. The song was later used as part of the Snoop Nye the Slam Guy fad.
The original unremixed song was included on Volume 3 of the YTMND Soundtrack.
