SpaDinner is a type of YouTube Poop.
SpaDinner is a commonly seen type of YTP. Thanks to the simple process of making them, it was quick and easy for both veteran and beginner Poopers. However, as advanced editing software became more prevalent, more techniques were utilized that were less reliant on CD-i quotes and sources. Today, SpaDinner is less popular (though sometimes still used) as a means of YTP, with its primary use being a symbol of early YTP or nostalgia.
SpaDinner YouTube Poops originated some time during earlier parts of YTP around the late 2000s to early 2010s. During this period of time, YTPs often depicted the CD-i games Hotel Mario and Legend of Zelda: Wand of Gamelon, as well as Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and the Super Mario World TV series. YTPs of this era were categorized by repeated use of quotes ("Mama Luigi!", "Is it the bagel?", "Dinner.") and early editing techniques (ear rape, Windows Movie Maker effects, etc.) that, while impressive during its time, has been seen less fondly due to the advancements of YTP.
- Spadinner originates from a portmanteau of "spaghetti" and "dinner", which both originate from Hotel Mario and Wand of Gamelon respectively.
- The quotes that were predominantly used throughout Spadinner YTPs are actually spliced from the original quotes. The original quotes are:
- "I hope she made lots of spaghetti!" (Hotel Mario, Gay Luigi)
- "I wonder what's for dinner." (Wand of Gamelon, King Harkinian)
- "Snooping around as usual, I see." (Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, Doctor Robotnik)
- "Or else you will die." (Wand of Gamelon, Ganon)
- "It's over NINE THOUSAND!!!" (Dragon Ball Z [Ocean Productions Dub], Vegeta)
- Ironically, Pingas, which would become a reoccuring quote used throughout many Spadinner YTPs, originated by accident. According to an interview of Stegblob (also known as Mari) by Intellegencer, the quote was chopped down to "pingas" while working on Robotnik Has a Viagra Overdose. Mari was "just putting random clips together like I and noticed the character Scratch doing this goofy face. So naturally I cut it, paste it into my project and zoom into his face. It wasn’t until I played it back that I heard the infamous word, and thought to myself that it sounded like the word ‘penis.’ (Feldman, 2020)”
