The animated GIF site GIPHY has honored drag queen Jasmine Masters with an award for her “And I oop” clip being the most-viewed GIF on their site. The viral clip, which shows Masters accidentally hitting herself in the genitals during a video rant, is often used as a reaction for people who make self-defeating errors while trying to express themselves.

To commemorate the honor, Masters posted an Instagram video of herself opening the box containing GIPHY’s award. The box included a congratulatory card, a small sculpture of GIPHY’s logo, and a video picture frame that repeatedly plays her GIF. During the video, Masters laughs while accepting the award with glee.

Fans of RuPaul’s Drag Race will recognize Masters as the Los Angeles-based drag performer who appeared in season 7, All Stars season 4 and the reality competition’s 2018 Holi-slay special.

Though Masters was eliminated early on in the competition, she has since maintained a loyal following with her humorous impromptu video rants on YouTube and Instagram. Her videos usually begin, “I am Jasmine Masters and I have something to say.”

The “And I oop” moment actually occurred during her Oct 28, 2015 video entitled “Jasmine Masters handle your liquor” which currently has 1,773,956 views. Here’s the video below — the GIF-worthy moment happens at 4:30:

At the key moment, Masters moves and then purses her lips, quietly closes her eyes for a moment, and then groans. When she continues speaking, she drops into a deeper voice and admits, “I just hit my balls.” She then begins fanning herself and says, “Ooooh, it’s got hot. I gotta get out of here. I’m done, I, um, yeah,” before waving off her fans and quickly ending the video.
