As part of Olajide 'KSI' Olatunji’s new routine of daily uploads on YouTube, he’s being exposed to more memes than ever and the latest one looks to have thrown him over the edge completely.
While KSI spent most of 2018 beefing with both Logan and Jake Paul, along with his brother Deji, he’s since shifted his focus towards more humorous videos such as meme reactions and even some Fortnite gameplay.
Unsurprisingly, KSI spending more on the platform has put him in contact with one meme in particular that he thinks is actually “ruining YouTube.”
“So obviously with a video, you watch it. But sometimes, you wanna just, you know, see what the comments are saying,” KSI says to begin his rant on the popular meme.
He then scrolls down to the comments section of a random and is greeted with an avalanche of comments saying “Oh yeah yeah” or simply repeating “Oh yeah” dozens of times.
After ranting for a bit longer about the ridiculousness of what he was seeing, KSI decided to do a bit of research on what the origins of this meme are to figure out why it’s taking over YouTube.
As it turns out, the commenters were actually posting lyrics to a song created by a YouTuber named ‘MaximilianMus,’ in which he simply says “Oh yeah yeah” over and over while Fortnite gameplay is shown on screen.
“It’s not a good meme. It needs to die. It needs to fucking die,” KSI exclaims about the meme. “Because it’s stupid as fuck! It’s almost as stupid as that egg meme, oh my fucking god!”
At this point, KSI pledges to start a new campaign called “Operation Blackout” to fight back against the “virus” that is this new meme.
He blacked out his profile picture on social media and begun commenting “STOP” on every YouTube video he found, urging his followers to do the same.

At the time of writing, however, the comment section on KSI’s video speaking out against the meme is being flooded with even more variations of the meme.
“Operation Blackout” is less than a day old but it looks like KSI has already lost the war that he started himself.
