The meme all started with popular Twitter users @DIXIENORMOUS and @fadisborn. On June 1st, @DIXIENORMOUS posted a photo of SpongeBob edited to look like a stereotypical, french woman. They then transformed the image into a video with music and @fadisborn began editing the video to cater to multiple, different, national stereotypes. Naturally, it wasn't long before the internet caught on and a meme was born.
