Are you challenging me? refers to a memorable quote from the 2002 Scooby-Doo film, posed by Shaggy.
An image macro of the scene has been in circulation online as a reaction and exploitable image macro, like the memes about Shaggy’s ultimate power.
Scooby-Doo premiered in the United States on June 8th, 2002.
In one of the scenes, the titular canine burps aloud, to which Shaggy (voiced by Neil Fanning and played by Matthew Lillard respectively) poses the question “Are you challenging me?”.
The scene would not gain prominence online until 2019, when Shaggy memes would sprawl across the web.
The first image macro, to feature an image macro from the scene was uploaded to Reddit’s r/dankmemes sub by u/OakyTheAcorn on January 26th, 2019.
Since then, the meme would spread to sites like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and various subreddits as well.
