LOL! The translation is so bad that people (including Jess and USA Today) tend to internally correct it to be "...set us up...", but the actual line (you can read it on the screen) is: "Somebody set UP US the bomb." I think that one is as funny as "All your base..."

Nobody ever noticed it, probably because it was just some small time character saying it, but I was always fond of, "When I grow up I want to be a blitzball!" from FFX.  But yes, this is the ultimate meme short of maybe the whole arrow to knee thing.

What a shallow analysis of an interesting meme. I expected something way more indepth.

I have to say this is one of my favorite memes, along with Leroy Jenkins. I've never seen her before. She does seem like she's probably new to being in front of the camera, but I bet she'll be one of their best before long.

I do enjoy her accent , its different from British or american , I can't really define from where it is from.I used to play Warcraft III a lot and the cheat code to win a campaign map was this meme ''All your base are belong to us'' , I never quite understood that , thanks for the info @tempertress .

@WolfGrey I know a girl IRL who is the blonde hair blue eyed version of Jess McDonell... it's uncanny they could be cousins...

 @nomailx Well 2 things, one...the accent is not English. And to learn the accent which is Australian, just practice recording your self, then playing it back, so learn by listening to Ausies then coping what their accent is, while coping, record your self, play it back, and then see where you went wrong. Rinse and repeat. The second part, so you can be on TV, ummm...this isn't TV.
