Ever needed a meme to express your frustration with YouTube copyright claims, a video game, an overplayed meme, or just walking around New York City? Well, fortunately, your day has come.

Twitter users have been using the “Ah shit, here we go again” meme to express their irritation at all kinds of situations.

The meme features a clip of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas character Carl Johnson, aka CJ. In the video game, CJ is grumbling as he walks toward a shady neighborhood.

“Ah shit, here we go again,” he says. “Worst place in the world, Rolling Heights Ballas country. I ain’t represented Grove Street in five years, but the Ballas won’t give a shit.”

According to Know Your Meme, the “Ah shit, here we go again” meme was seen in some form all the way back in 2015, but began to look more like the meme we know and love today in late 2018. At that point, it made the rounds on Reddit as a static image.

But the meme really took off in early April, when Twitter user @ChaoticGeekCG created a green screen version of the clip so others could create their own videos and images. Twitter users couldn’t make anime- and video-game-focused memes fast enough.

Some users wanted to know how they could create the meme themselves.

Yes, @Zeecrum427, in fact, there is.

Even the new Star Wars trailer couldn’t escape the meme treatment.

Now, there’s even an Instagram account devoted to the meme.

The face in the profile picture? Carl Johnson’s, of course.
