Bottom Line: Another movie based meme that spawned a wave of doctored photos and video mashups. This one is based on the fact that over the top movie antics have struck a cord with the public since we started letting Carrot Top act in movies in the early 90s.
Some fans of the film believe Daniel Plainview’s memorable quote “I drink your milkshake” will join the ranks of other famous film lines within pop culture. That particular quote has been used in other media repeatedly. In season 24 of Jeopardy, “I Drink Your Milkshake” was the title of a category about milkshakes. Jon Stewart, host of The Daily Show and the 80th Academy Awards (for which There Will Be Blood was nominated for eight Oscars), has referenced the phrase “I drink your milkshake” several times on his show in response to news involving oil drilling, including during interviews with Ted Koppel and Nancy Pelosi. In February 2008, the night before the 80th Academy Awards, a Saturday Night Live skit featured a Food Network show starring Daniel Plainview (played by Bill Hader) and H.W. Plainview (played by Amy Poehler) called “I Drink Your Milkshake” in which Daniel and his son travel from state to state looking for the perfect milkshake. “I drink your milkshake” has inspired a There Will Be Blood fansite of the same name, as well as a YouTube video called “There Will Be Milkshakes” which features a montage of scenes from the film with the song “Milkshake” by Kelis playing in the background.
