About

"Dum Dum Give Me Gum Gum" is a memorable line uttered by the Easter Island Head in the 2006 comedy-fantasy film Night at the Museum in which the now-sentient statue demands chewing gum from the character Larry. Online, a series of tributes, remixes and videos have been dedicated to the exchange.

Origin

On December 22nd, 2006, the film Night at the Museum was released in the United States. In the film, a number of exhibits and inanimate at the American Museum of Natural History come to life.[1] When the character Larry (portrayed by Ben Stiller) crosses the Easter Island Head (voiced by Brad Garret), they have the following exchange:

Easter Island Head: Hey! Dum-dum!
Larry: Yes?
Easter Island Head: You give me gum-gum!
Larry: I give you gum-gum?
Easter Island Head: You new Dum-dum. You give me gum-gum.
Larry: Gee, okay, you know what? I have no gum-gum. Sorry. And my name isn't Dum-dum. My name's Larry.
Easter Island Head: No, your name Dum-dum.
[People screaming]
Easter Island Head: Oh, you in trouble, Dum-dum. You better run-run. From Attila the Hun-hun.
[Larry runs as Attila and his gang are chasing him]
Easter Island Head: See you later, Dum-dum!


On April 1st, 2007, YouTuber etagayee posted a video featuring a still image of an Easter Island Head and a person saying the lines. The post received more than 24,000 views in 11 years.
