"I Saw You On TV Last Night" is an exploitable video series based on a scene form the Nickelodeon animated television series SpongeBob SquarePants. The quote is uttered by the character Old Man Jenkins, who tells SpongeBob that he saw him "on TV last night." However, when the episode cuts back to Jenkins watching television, it is revealed that he was watching a commercial for Bran Flakes, which comes in a yellow, rectangular box, and he had mistook the cereal box for SpongeBob. Online, people replace SpongeBob and the cereal with various objects for humorous effect.


On March 22nd, 2002, the episode of SpongeBob SquarePants entitled "As Seen On TV" aired in the United States. Old Man Jenkins sees SpongeBob and tells him that he saw him on TV last night.
