Catch that man!
This fad began on January 6, 2006 with an animation of a man in a milk crate wearing a motorcycle helmet manually propelling himself forward while being chased by a bunch of asian-looking men in tight wet suits down a slick roadway, accompanied by a sped-up version of the song "Japan Break Industries" by Eurobeat. Initially submitted by infernalmeep, the image source was attributed to 2chan, a Japanese imageboard from which the infamous 4chan.org is based.
User infernalmeep has not commented whether or not he was the creator of this animation or just a reposter of this image.
To date there are more than 100 spinoff sites from this initial entry.
