About

"Apes Together Strong" is a memorable quote communicated using America sign language by the character Caesar in the 2011 science fiction film Rise of the Planet of the Apes. A screenshot of the moment in which the phrase appears in the film later became a reaction image macro expressing solidarity.

Three years later, YouTuber ArabRebel posted a clip of the scene. The post received more than 86,000 views in less than six years (shown below).
