Welcome to the Rice Fields, Motherfucker
Welcome to the Rice Fields, Motherfucker is a quote by Filthy Frank from his video “HOW TO SAY HELLO IN 30 LANGUAGES.” It became a popular quote and catchphrase among his fans and has spread in various image macros. On August 25th, 2012, Filthy Frank uploaded “HOW TO SAY HELLO IN 30 LANGUAGES.” For his impression of how to say “hello” in many asian countries, the camera zooms in on him as he screams “Welcome to the rice fields, motherfucker!”
Filthy Frank is know for using racial and ethnic humor in his skits, which may be perceived offensive by some viewers. On May 31st, 2012, Frank uploaded a video in which he performs his own interpretations of 100 accents from around the world based on racial and ethnic stereotypes (shown below, left), followed by a second part uploaded on June 12th (shown below, right).
As he was almost always in character on camera, Filthy Frank’s identity was for a long time unknown. In December of 2012, YouTuber BlamedForRape commented to a DizastaMusic video claiming that Frank’s real name was George Miller and that they had attended high school together (shown below).
On December 29th, 2017 Miller made the announcement on the official Filthy Frank Twitter account that he was done with comedic videos, owing to his lack of enjoyment in making them and the damage that the various voices posed to his health (shown below). He also pointed to neurological conditions he did not discuss.
