ShittyMcShit. It was created on April 25, 2004, and was the first YTMND to get over a million views. Its components are a tiled picture of Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, an excerpt from "The Picard Song" by DarkMateria , and text that reads "CAPTAIN JEAN-LUC PICARD / USS ENTERPRISE".is a YTMND created by user
What's notable about this YTMND is that it was the first site to gain over one million views as of August 2005. However, on January 2, 2006, a hacker found the password for the site creator's account and deleted the site. Max Goldberg promptly replaced the YTMND with a previous backup, but was unable to restore its view count. By February 2006, The Picard Song reached two million views.
Some users seem to believe that the "Luc" in "Jean-Luc" is not spoken in the sound file used for the site. The "Luc" is present, but it is difficult to hear because of the electronic beats that comprise the percussion of the song. Nevertheless, some users maintain that the "Luc" is absent.
Additionally, some users believe that Shitty himself wrote the Picard song, and that he and Dark Materia are the same person. This confusion may have occurred since at the time of the site's creation, YTMND creators were not yet able to cite their source materials. Shitty McShit has updated the sources for his site (pointing to Dark Materia's site) now that source citing is possible.
The Picard-Batman War
The song was included on Volume 2 of the YTMND Soundtrack. In addition, Picard was used as the disc cover for Volume 7.
