Brick Killed is a series of YTMNDs created by Ozone31 featuring a scene from the film Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy in which Brick Tamland (played by Steve Carell) throws a trident into the heart of another newscaster who is riding a horse during a "vicious cockfight" among all the news anchors from the different television stations. Brick always end with his trademark smile.

There are currently currently 10 official entries into the series, but there are several unofficial sites made by both Ozone31 and tributes by other fellow YTMND members.

The Official Set

I: Brick Killed a Guy

The original site was created August 11, 2005. It contains the unaltered clip of Brick Tamland throwing the trident through the heart of the man on a horse. The sound clip is a crude loop of American Idiot by Green Day. The image in this site, as well as the next two, are larger than the latter versions, which were scaled down.

II: Brick Killed Dumbledore

This site originated in the YTMND Forums when Ozone31 posted in the Site Requests subforum and he asked if he should make a spinoff of the original site. One member jokingly posted "Brick Killed Dumbledore" and Ozone31 actually went on to make that very site. It received good reviews, which caused him to continue the series thereafter.

The site was created August 14, 2005. It contains the same basic picture and sound from the original, but has Dumbledore's head placed over the one of the "Guy" with cartoon-esque reactions drawn on as he is hit. A clip of Ron Burgundy is placed over the music. He says "I saw that! Brick killed a guy!" with the word "guy" is replaced by "Dumbledore" from the Spoiler fad.

III: Brick Killed the Meatloaf

Instead of an existing fad, the third installment takes from another movie, Wedding Crashers. Near the end of the film, Will Ferrel makes an appearance as Chaz. He yells at his mother to get the meatloaf for him and his guest. He yells the now famous line: "MOM! THE MEATLOAF! ...FUCK!"

The site was created August 14, 2005. It follows the same formula as the second, placing a piece of meatloaf over the face of the "Guy" and has the same cartoon-esque impressions. Instead of "Dumbledore" being dubbed over "a guy", part of Chaz's quote is placed there: "THE MEATLOAF! ...FUCK!" Will Ferrel plays both Ron Burgundy and Chaz, which adds to the humor of the audio clip.
