The Tragedy... fad was first coined by greenbanana. The site showed Grover, a character known from Sesame Street, brutally murdered due to being crushed in a door. The YTMND ends with a still of Grover dead fading to gray, with the text "Grover 1969-2007" appearing on the page, and "Floods" by Pantera playing softly in the background. Shortly after this hit the front page, Sark76 made several sites off the bat, including the most popular version "Tragedy at the bakery." Soon after, other users started to pick up on the fad and quickly started to make different Grover death sequences ranging from being trampled to starvation.
The original Tragedy site was inspired by, which showed the moment of the door-crushing and was posted two days before.
