Oh, how you changed Oh, you changed Oh, how you changed. Hooked on crack, just the other day Now, he's down with the CIA We got covert operation in Vietnam Played a hitman, assassin, like the law's long arm He went down to protect his country Eat Mexican food and make lots of money Come back up north, drive a big white car And take himself a plane down to. Nicaragua Well, it feels like I'm the only one to blame Oh, Ebin, you changed Ebin, Ebin, Ebin, Ebin, you.

On February 18th, 2014, Redditor C0ltFury asked "What does the 'Ebin' meme mean?" in a post submitted to the subreddit. On April 1st, YouTuber Herr uploaded a Baneposting video titled "Ebin Meem Broseph", garnering over 100,000 views in the next year (shown below)
