Marking Your Submission Solved

When you get an answer to your question, reply to the answer with a comment with the word "Solved!" in it. This will give the user who answered it a point in their flair. If you find it yourself, reply to yourself - but you don't get a point for solving your own question.

Only OP or a mod can mark a post Solved!, but if you see the OP say thanks but not reply with Solved! (give them at least several hours), someone else can reply with it and it can be manually marked by the mods.

Only one point can be awarded per thread. OP can contact mods if they believe multiple points need to be given.

Here's what you'll see when this is done properly:

  • OP responds with a comment with "Solved!" anywhere in the text.
  • Post gets flaired with "Solved" (note no "!") (by Automoderator).
  • THERE MAY BE A DELAY OF UP TO A DAY HERE, WhatisThisBot does not run 24/7. It's usually near immediate on weekdays.
  • WhatIsThisBot awards the point, sets flair to "Solved!"
  • Person who answered gets a reply from the bot notifying of point.

The reply from the bot will have who accepted the answer (OP or a mod), and a number indicating the user's point total.

You must comment with Solved! (including the exclamation point)

What if I solve it myself?

Just reply to your comment solving it with Solved!. You won't get a point, but the flair will get set.

Flair Points

If you have text in your flair, the number will show before it, e.g. "3/This is my flair".

If the bot telling you you've gotten a point is annoying to someone who answers a lot I can look into removing that for certain users or over a certain point threshold.

The bot is not running 24/7 yet, so sometimes it may immediately process notifications, sometimes it may be several hours. If you see the "Solved" flair set, don't worry, it will get done.

A movie I saw probably 20 years ago, probably Spanish or Brazilian dialogue. The movie starts upside-down (although the subtitles are correctly placed on the bottom), and at some point someone (the director?) is shown in front of a nondescript wall, narrating part of the movie because "we didn't have enough money for this part". I don't remember much else.

Hi all,

I have been wrecking my brain and trying every possible combination of key words, but I cannot seem to find this movie:

There are 3 friends, 2 guys and a girl. They have some sort of accident with a train or big vehicle. At this point, the movie skips into a few months/years later. The 2 guys are still alive, I think the girl passed. They eat in a sort of restaurant that looks like a big caravan.

I remember a lot of trees/woods. And an old house. During the film you get some hints that something is not right, as the main character 'sees' things, like his friend having a decomposed face and such. Near the end, they go into the creepy house and find an article saying that in de accident, the guy and the girl died and the main character is stuck in a coma. So the whole movie was actually in his head and he has been in a coma for (I think) 10 years.

I saw this movie on a dedicated movie channel in the Netherlands at least 4/5 years ago. Spoken language was English.

I hope someone can help me!

Big thanks

I think it's from a movie and goes something like this

"How long has it been since X happened?"

"What's the day?"

"Tuesday"

"Then about 6 years?"

That's all I can give, it's a really hazy memory.

[SOLVED]

Does anybody know that song that goes like:

Well it’s been a- looooooong long time

Maybe it doesn’t say long twice, not sure, but I know it goes it’s been a- (then there’s a very quick pause) long time (but the long is drawn out)

I have this part stuck in my head and I’m going crazy because I can’t find the rest of it

EDIT: right after he says “been a” the drums come in

FINAL EDIT: This is it

It's a woman telling about a house her and her husband are thinking of buying. She thinks the place is adorable but the husband sees some red flags, such as doors that won't open and seem to lead nowhere. In the end the woman realizes how close she came to living out a horror film. It's actually a really funny read!

Thanks!

I know this is a very vague description but I figured I may have some luck with someone knowing what it is, as it was truly overplayed at around 2015-2017. I believe it was used as an intro song for a somewhat famous youtuber, and was also a meme. The song starts off with the piano, and then some subtle white noise and after a while it just sounds like a regular hip hop beat (there were no vocals in the song, it was fully instrumental).

Singer is a male with a high pitched voice. Includes guitars, bass drums, AND A CATCHY CHORUS THAT I CAN'T NAME. I recorded myself singing the tune so enjoy that.

I remember watching this game show daily, but I only remember the final round. I believe I wouldve watched it in the 90s - early 2000s at the latest.

The winning contestant would participate in a final round consisting of one question about a small detail from their favorite movie/show/piece of pop culture.

For instance, I remember one winner said they knew the most about a specific movie and the question was how much was the price of gas listed at a gas station shown briefly in a scene.

Any help would honestly make my day as this lack of memory bugs me constantly.

A friend of mine has been racking his brain for days trying to find this movie from the only scene he remembers. He thinks it’s a comedy.

Other things, he thinks the girl had short blonde hair and was named Andi.

This movie was a foreign film on SBS in Australia several years ago. I believe it’s either Spanish, Portuguese, or maybe Italian. The release date looks to be late 90s or early to mid 2000s.

What I remember is the main character is a male that looks to be in depression early in the film. He’s out walking one night and sees a married couple hanging up signs on lampposts as a part of their business. He’s intrigued/attracted to the wife, a dirty blonde.

He begins watching/looking for this woman over the next few months and starts voyeuristic tendencies, including following the couple home and spying on the wife before getting caught by her.

They begin and odd friendship where he follows her around and she talks to him at random moments while hanging street signs. They begin an affair and the movie progresses. I can’t remember the ending or the title. Thanks for your help!

It talks about how if God is truly fair, he will judge by content of character and not based on meaningless rules of religion. And if God isn't fair, then the speaker wouldn't want to spend his life worshipping an unfair God anyway.

It’s a live action comedy show with early teens in school. I remember that there was a unhygienic male cafeteria cook who includes dirty socks in his cooking. There were also giant pieces of bubble gum as big as burger buns consumed by the kids.

I asked the account who the composer was, but she didn't respond. :( I think the instagram account is inactive. Help!

We watched them in school. They were on some website, maybe ABC? Or some Aboriginal themed site. Anyway, the animation was 3D. The one I watched was of a mother who fights a witchdoctor to save her baby.

I remember a black four-legged creature (quinkin or something along those lines maybe, can't remember what it was) turning invisible and approaching the mother and her son at a campfire. After possessing the sleeping baby, she looks at him and he screams and has demonic cat-like eyes and (maybe) three fingers on each hand.

She ends up confronting a witchdoctor who's casting spells in some cave. All I remember is the mum had a mini afro and I think the witch doctor was bald.

Thanks!

I unfortunately can't remember if it was being shown at E3, Gamescon, etc.

IIRC it was four player co-op, possibly a horror/horde game. The trailer showed a group of people entering an abandoned bunker base contracted to either retrieve something or clear the bunker of (otherworldly?) threats.

Its not strange brigade.

5-10 years ago, I remember owning a humorous book which was in the style of an encyclopedia. It touted itself as an encyclopedia of all human knowledge. Its introduction was an overview of all knowledge, making a joke about how the ancient Greeks would use a young oiled boy as an incentive for men to learn. One entry about the Appalachian Trail made reference to the vast inefficiency of the trail as a form of travel. It was a hardcover book. I think the cover may have been mostly white.

I'm trying to find this weird and gross manga. Sometimes the panels are shared on 4chan for it's shock factor (one panel has the child-man bashing a girl's head)

It starts with a chubby guy with glasses in his late twenties living a shitty life. Somehow he ends up sneaking into his old childhood school, find a girl's swimsuit and attempts to put it on, gets caught by a security guard and is chased to the roof and ends up falling off. Before he makes contact with the ground he is transported back to his childhood and proceeds to manipulate his classmates in ways (such as getting girls).

Thank you in advance!

A "giant" man is shunned from society and lives alone in the mountains. His family was killed by bears. A little girl befriends him and reintroduces him back into society. I remember there was a scene where they were at the carnival and trying the game where you knock over stacked milk bottles. No one could ever knock them all over because pegs were holding the last bottles in place. Instead of knocking them all over, the giant threw the ball so hard he just smashed them all.

The little girl had pigtails and on the movie cover, she was giving the giant wildflowers.

I saw it here on reddit sometime this year, could have been on r/EnoughInternet, r/nononono or another related subreddit I can't remember. However, the video was poor quality, probably handy-cam footage and probably originally created around 2005-10. Sorry about the vague details but it was very funny and would like to see it again.

It's a different song of the same era but it sounds like: https://youtu.be/SIdJrFeilAs?t=80 (1:20 if the link doesn't work). I feel like the lyrics to this other song are something like "Something something I'm a business man" (I know it's not).

I searched around and just couldn't figure it out and it's driving me crazy, thanks for any help.

edit: Even though I looked and couldn't find it, I feel like it would belong in a Guardians of the Galaxy sound track.

EDIT FOUND IT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jdiB3cISeBk

Bass line is at https://www.dropbox.com/s/48fwydla6jxbf3s/song-reddit-2018-09-19.mp3?dl=0. It seems to be plucked on a string bass, with noticeable slides between each note.

My young daughter (now 19) watched a series of cartoon clips featuring Japanese milk cartons and food items dancing around on Yahoo's kids site "Yahooligans" around 2000-2001. The clip with the milk had a song that sounded something like "dagoo dagoo, dagoo dagoo, misha naka wata goooo". These were like Japanese PSAs for food products.

Can't remember the name of that movie you saw when you were a kid? Or the name of that video game you had for Game Gear? This is the place to get help.
