I'm looking for a mefi comment from a few years ago relating to a "I'm on a yacht" meme/FPP that isn't Lonely Island.

As I remember it, maybe 5-6 years ago, someone did an FPP about a meme with the kids these days where the whole deal was, "I'm on a yacht" a la "Would you say that to someone in a $3,000 suit, c'mon!" Within the thread, someone linked to this utterly amazing, utterly online, explanation about the meme.

Searches on boats, yachts, etc have been fruitless. I might be misremembering the watercraft on which the meme was based. I do have a habit of looking up things I thought I were published 5 years ago only to discover it was 15 years ago.

Could it have been related to either the Bojack on his boat meme or SNL's "Guy Who Just Bought a Boat" character?

It wasn't in a conversation about swag, was it?

There was the "I'm on a Boat!" meme from 2009 featuring Andy Samberg?

Here's the OG post.

Was it related to the Old Spice commercial?

Thanks everyone! Definitely not Andy Samberg. I remember there being an FPP about the meme in general, and I think it was post 2016.
