  • 07/26/17--10:49: Snail Gosh
  • Snail Gosh originated in May 2007 when the user Crash4563 began to be interested in YouTube Poops at the time however the influence for what would become Snail Gosh stems back to Frosties Kid Advert when one of the videos was uploaded back in 2006 it was reversed and this inspired Crash4563 the following year to see what it would be like if the Chocolate Guy was reversed and the user reversed the video but at the time did not have the technical ability to reverse videos so instead just reversed the audio of Chocolate Guy saying CHOCOLATE and uploaded into a video with just the audio only. This was known at the time as Still Nosh not Snail Gosh but gradually the name evolved into what would become Snail Gosh but unfortunately Crash4563 got suspended by Viacom in June 2007 for copyright violations but videos started to appear about Still Nosh/Snail Gosh.

  • About

    Adam Ellis, aka adamtots, is a cartoonist and writer for Buzzfeed who draws webcomics intended to be relatable. Though he has amassed a large following, he has been criticized for his art style, particularly his tendency to cut-and-paste previous works.

    History

    Ellis is a native of Portland, Oregon.[1] He debuted with his blog Books of Adam[2] on July 12th, 2010, where he shared art and musings about various topics. On July 9th, 2013, he published Books of Adam: The Blunder Years,[3] a book of his art and various stories. He began posting his comics to Reddit on December 22nd, 2014. His first post to /r/funny[4] gained over 14,000 points (shown below).



    He appears to have been hired by Buzzfeed in early 2015. The earliest comic of his with a Buzzfeed watermark posted to his Facebook page[5] appears on February 6th, 2015 (shown below). Ellis’ work was written about by The Huffington Post[6] on April 12th of that year. He has since written many comics for Buzzfeed and has amassed over 796,000 followers on Facebook.[7]



    Criticism

    Ellis has been criticized for his work, particularly his tendency to cut-and-paste previous images and faces for his comics. On May 18th, 2017, a question about the Adam Ellis hate was posted to /r/OutOfTheLoop.[8] In the thread, the top comment by wham00 reads:

    “From what I’ve observed the comics are very low effort when it comes to the art and humor. His characters are for the most part static in every panel, with only very small changes in expression or eye position. He’s been accused of using templates. Also the punchlines tend to be pretty lame, and he’s just an obnoxious guy in general.

    On July 1st, an entry on him was added to BadComicsWiki.[9] In the entry, the site notes how the static facial expressions of the comic were similar to the work of Ctrl+Alt+Del (shown below).



    On July 25th, Ellis posted a comic about summer heat, which was soon noticed to be a near cut-and-paste job of one of his previous comics. Tumblr user candygarnet[10] pointed this out in a post that gained over 26,000 notes.

    X Destroys Everything In Its Path is a meme based around a GIF of a bullet slicing through multiple objects (which includes an apple, a card, and a water bottle).

    Origin

    The original footage of the bullet slicing the objects is taken from an unknown Korean television series that aired on EBS (Educational Broadcasting System) sometime between 1995-2001 (evidenced by the logo in the footage). In September of 2006, YTMND user tricolor found the footage and edited it so that each object is shot down in succession (as if they’re set up one by one), unlike the original where it’s obvious they’re being shot one at a time. All this was set to Franz Schubert’s “Ellens dritter Gesang” (better known as “Ave Maria”). User cliffmartinez uploaded this footage (with its original music and uncut) to YouTube on April 20, 2012. It sits at only 50 views as of 2017.

    Spread

    Just over a month later, the meme took off. A site entitled “One Star Destroys Everything In Its Path” was uploaded, giving the meme its official name (the original by tricolor was simply called “Killing Me Softly”). After that, more sites spawned, which typically replace the bullet with something else (such as Metal Slug or Katamari, the latter has the addition of picking up the objects in true Katamari fashion).
