The TIGER handheld fad involves the old TIGER handheld games which used LCD graphics. The fad was started by the original Conan is... an Alligator! YTMND featuring Conan O'Brien flailing his arms like the jaws of an alligator. The music was done in the form of the original TIGER game. Each handheld was adjusted so that each button represnted something in that fad.
== Fad Structure
The fad took off with YTMND makers incorporating a basic formula:
- Replace label with an overlay of the target character (id Picard, Ronald, Peppers, etc.).
- Replace the LCD screen with a two-part animation depicting the original YTMND (ie Conan is, lol internet, etc).
- Photoshop the buttons and their labels to create the illusion of a legitimate Tiger application. This was optional.
This fad has recently expanded to include spoofs featuring Nintendo's Game And Watch series instead of Tiger Handhelds.
