Whomst Has Awakened The Ancient One is a reaction image depicting a creepy statue of Barney the Dinosaur from the children’s TV show Barney & Friends emerging from the woods. The photo is typically used to reference the reemergence of someone or something being summoned, especially after it has become irrelevant or dormant for an extended period of time, featuring the text “whomst has awakened the ancient one.” This statue of Barney is also the same one used in the Cha Cha Real Smooth meme.


The photo used in the Whomst Has Awakened The Ancient One meme comes from a post on June 29th, 2018, by Redditor[1] Flexi-boot to the r/cursedimages sub, receiving over 7,300 upvotes. The post (shown below) features an uncropped version of the image, which OP said, “Was sent to me from my SO.”

The original photo of the statue was taken in Scotland at the Storybook Glen children’s park, which includes several other life-sized statues from various TV shows like The Simpsons and movies like Shrek.


Before the text was added to the bottom of the image, it appeared in memes without “whomst has awakened the ancient one” initially. One such example was posted on July 22nd, 2018, by Redditor[2] CredibleSoap to the r/thanosdidnothingwrong sub. The post (seen below) uses a cropped version of the photo as a reaction, receiving over 29,000 upvotes.
