| Original YTMND:|
The Moon Man fad was created on May 31st, 2007 by YTMND user farkle. The original Moon Man site featured an animated GIF of former McDonald's mascot Mac Tonight, playing the piano along to the popular fad song "Macarron Chacarron" by El Chombo. While the fad originally started out with Moon Man jamming out to YTMND fad music on his piano, the majority of Moon Man sites feature him talking using AT&T Labs Text To Speech (the official Moon Man voice is AT&T Mike) and often features a long chanting of "KKK!"
As a YTMND fad "character" (such as Batman or Picard), Moon Man was originally a harmless musical talent. However, as his creator Farkle and others successfully developed him, he was further associated with racism and violence. Some assume this is because his head is shaped somewhat like a Klu Klux Klan hood. Currently, Moon Man is depicted as a profane, racist, sexist, homophobic criminal, given to elaborate acts of sexual violence and/or hate crimes. Much of the humor in Moon Man sites is derived from hearing offensive, violent subject matter spoken in Moon Man's deadpan, nonchalant tone of voice.
During months of late October and November 2008, the official "Moon Crew" was formed. The members of this organization are dedicated to their goal of filling YTMND with Moon Man sites, as well as "chatting racist shit" and chanting "KKK" all day. Currently, the Moon Crew includes farkkkle, FowderSoapReturns, Hypersaxon, Incredibled, Mr-Ross, JamesChicks, JamesMedicine, Clownch, Excrement, skoobysnaks, ThatDude, fofofum, shackleford1, and YourOldPalMoonMan. Users ssj4vegeta and dam both possess associate membership.
On August 21st of 2009, AT&T became aware of the ever increasingly powerful force known as "Moon Man." Thus when the word "moon man" is typed into the TTS demo's box, it results in an automatic error message. Thankfully an intrepid young Moon Crew task force lead by FowderSoap quickly thwarted the evil plan, and discovered a way to bypass the error. FowderSoapReturns then created a new site in order to warn and instruct all those who would seek to aid the Moon Crew's cause. Moon Man Emergency Broadcast There is also an alternative and uncensored demo hosted by Wizzard.
The Moon Man fad is considered to be a NARVish fad due to the fact that the image never changes, only the wording changes, usually with little wording. At one point, max himself threatened to ban anyone who constantly posted moon man sites without making them "nsfw".
Common Moon Man site themes and motifs: "ayeiojfoisuvfjksld" (example) - A seemingly random grouping of letters put together to have Moon Man speak it in sites, it is also known as Moon Speak. "shopping cart" -mainly used in sites because of the funny way Moon Man says it. "into a vat"- used in titles where the vat is filled with something strange and terrible. "crazy grandma" - the punchline of several sites. "ol ol ol" - the way Moon Man laughs. "cume/cumeing" - used to describe how Moon Man ejaculates. "and when I am done with it" - A segway into another part of what Moon Man will do. "now you may be thinking, 'Moon Man...' " -Used in sites where Moon Man considers what the listener will anticipate. "cockslapping or cockslaping" - Describing how Moon Man will strike things with his lunar phallus

March 19, 2009 - Many users involved in the Moon Man fad are banned, including FowderSoap, PancakeLizard, ExxonMobil, heykidsitsmoonman, and anyone associated with the account MoonCrew. JamesChicks makes a site announcing he will take a break from Moon Man sites for now.
(Shortly After) - Soon after the Great Banning, the Moon Crew reemerged stronger than ever. The founders who were banned created new accounts such as farkkkle and FowderSoapReturns (an homage to UmfuldReturns). With a rise in the number of members, the Moon Crew continued about its business, and even fostered a number of new "Up and Coming" worthy sites.
