No This Is Patrick
No, this is Patrick! – one of the most iconic reaction meme template of all times.
The quote was originally uttered by Patrick Star, one of the main characters of the famous cartoon series Spongebob Squarepants.
As mentioned above, No, this is Patrick is a reference for a scene from Spongebob Squarepants, Season 2 Episode 23.
In the scene we can see Patrick struggling to complete his work duties, as he is just starting in his new job at the Krusty Krab.
His tasks include handling costumer phone calls, but every occasion a caller opens the call with the line ‘Is this the Krusty Krab?’, Patrick each time deflects with ‘No, this is Patrick’.
Spread and Usage
No this is Patrick was first utilized as a meme in 2006, in an image macro format on 4chan’s /b/ board, where someone started a new thread asking “is this /b/?”.
In 2007, a video was uploaded by user ItamiBokuto on YouTube that merged the famous This is Sparta scene from the movie 300 with No this is Patrick. The clip emulated a rather simplistic dispute between Leonidas and Patrick.
This mashup made No this is Patrick viral as it has gained over 4 million views over the years.
