About

I'm Gonna Stop You Right There is a reaction image macro series that uses a screen capture of the Vault-Tec sales representative from the 2015 post-apocalyptic video game Fallout 4. The phrase is placed next to the image of the sales representative with his arm outstretched and used as the punchline to the image's caption.

Origin
