Before “There Will Be Blood” expanded its release, on January 18th, 2008, YouTuber KevinKoonz uploaded a music video YouTube, titled There Will Be Milkshakes, a montage of scenes from the original There Will Be Blood trailer clipped together to the song “Milkshake” by Kelis (shown below).

On February 2nd, 2008, YouTube user ShawnRay9 uploaded a music video of the same title and song. This time, the video was much longer and focused on the infamous “Milkshake” scene. ShawnRay9 had later on moved to a new account and reposted the video. This time it was titled I Drink Your Milkshake!!! Other users started making their own “Milkshake” music videos, such as users Controversiolae (shown below, left) and weareactualsize (shown below, right).

The scene was also widely parodied and impersonated on YouTube. Examples include videos by Brock Baker, who posted “I Drink Your Juicebox!” on May 30th, 2009, gaining over 40,000 views (shown below, left) and a reenactment posted by UndoTube which gained over 200,000 views (shown below, right).

The scene also had a significant presence on YTMND, with multiple pages devoted to “I Drink Your Milkshake” parodies, including “There Will Be Picard” and “There Will Be Connery.”

The scene also was popularly referenced in image macros from the era, appearing in Demotivational Posters and “I Can Haz Cheezeburger?” edits (examples shown below).
