All Your Base are Belong to Us

“All your base are belong to us” is a broken English phrase that sparked an Internet meme in 2002, with the spread of a Flash animation that depicted the slogan.

It comes from the opening scenes of the European version of Zero Wing, a Japanese video game by Toaplan which was rushed in production and as a result was poorly translated into English.

The phrase or some variation of lines from the game has appeared in articles, books, comics, clothing, movies, radio shows, songs, television shows, video games, webcomics, and websites.
