Looking for the historical record on this, but I suspect people have pretended to be shooting stuff out their butt since the dawn of mankind. Definitely need more grant money to continue my research.
Perhaps it is only with the invention of the photograph that this trend has really taken hold. WE must suspect that before cameras their were dudes in the 1800’s who were messing with perspective for this same reason.
“Stand right here. No wait. Get a little lower. Look! It looks like this is shooting out of my butt, right?”

Now that we’ve got cameras in out pockets and the internet everywhere, this ancient phenomenon is finally being documented. Behold, the evidence…
