The original video was posted on Instagram by user WelvenDaGreat. The video is of himself speaking on the phone to his friend telling him a joke that "Deez Nuts" arrived in the mail. The video went viral on Instagram gaining over 58,000 likes in a month. "Deez Nuts" was also told by Darius Benson.
The origin of the joke itself is believed to be from Dr. Dre's 1992 debut album The Chronic from a song titled "Deeez Nuuuts". Warren G can be heard at the start of the song telling a #DeezNuts joke.
