"Puzzle Room" (officially titled "Program Rhythm", also known as "Problem Solver" or "Rhythm Code") is a frequently ripped track from the game Kirby Planet Robobot. It is also a meme on the channel, sometimes referred to as НЕТ (Russian for "no", pronounced nyet; commonly misinterpreted as het), referencing the rip "Puzzle Room - Kirby Planet Robobot", infamous for its shocking content.

Origin

In a June 2015 stream[exact date needed] Vinesauce Joel played a Russian bootleg Sega Genesis Felix the Cat game. He “died“ and ended up at a continue screen that said

ПОПЫТОК: 2
ПРОДОЛЖИТЬ?

ДА       НЕТ

Translation:

TRIES: 2
CONTINUE?

YES       NO

Joel wanted to end the game so he chose "НЕТ", notably mispronouncing it as "hhhhhet". This got him to the infamous game over screen which said "ИГРА ОКОНЧЕНА" (translation: "THE GAME IS OVER") and featured a 2011 artwork by artist Kris "Dozign" Balerite titled Felix the Cat Unmasked. The artwork depicts Felix ripping off his own face, revealing a one-eyed skull underneath, with blood spilling from his torn-off skin. Joel's shocked reaction became somewhat of a meme among the Vinesauce community.

The Puzzle Room Incident

On June 18, 2016, just a few videos into the Reboot, SiIvaGunner uploaded a rip called "Puzzle Room - Kirby Planet Robobot" which was intended as a reference to Joel's aforementioned stream. It featured the music from the bootleg Felix the Cat game's continue and game over screens, as well as the words "ДА" and "НЕТ" with annotated links above them. Clicking on "ДА" led to the music video "Russkij Pusskij" by Carlito, while clicking on "НЕТ" led to a shock video of a harlequin baby (which is a baby with the harlequin ichthyosis skin disease, that makes it look uncanny and frightening). The rip itself ended with a dark-skinned hand clicking on "НЕТ" and a picture of the harlequin baby with a Hypernova filter.

The inclusion of such shock imagery resulted in an uproar among the SiIvaGunner fanbase. The SiIvaGunner team quickly deleted the rip and fired its creator Le Ruse Bird from the uploading team (although he was revealed to have rejoined later), as well as posted an out-of-character apology. In that video, it was explained that the rip was uploaded without the consent of anyone else on the team, it wasn't supposed to be part of the reboot, and it didn't represent what the channel stands for.

A few days later, the rip "Continue? - Felix the Cat" contained the first use of "Puzzle Room" as a rip joke, referencing the so-called "Puzzle Room incident". Since then, SiIvaGunner has used "Puzzle Room" as a minor meme featured in several rips. Other references to the incident have been made as well, such as Felix the Cat appearing as a character in a few places. Unlike the original rip, these references never contain any truly shocking imagery.

Trivia

  • The meme was alluded to on the actual GilvaSunner channel, where a remix of "Program Rhythm" by the Japanese remix community SBFR was given the title "нет головоломки?" (trans. "No puzzle?").
