Gaijin 4Koma (4-frame foreigners) or 'Reaction Guys' to many who started lurking 4chan after 2006 or thereabouts.

A series of four-paned comics based on two photographs of IGN employees reacting to Nintendo’s announcement of new titles at the E3 conference in 2003/04. The multi-pane set up is typically used to express one’s disappointment and excitement over two separate things.

The original four-paned template sparked the imaginations of many 4chan/IGN forumite and soon enough, the meme was exploited to include all manner of variations e.g. extra panes, excitement before disinterest, photo-shopping the employees heads, inverted colours to denote a division by zeo etc. Thousands of these images exist today.

To those in the know, Gaijin 4Koma is still widely regarded as one of the best memes ever.
