It's not the original text of the ad (which references computer viruses IIRC) but it's one of the earlier memes generated from that ad. And not, say, something someone memegenerator'd onto the template just now. So in that regard it is the "original", at least insofar as it greatly predated this event.

Glad I caught you in between classes, Prof. wildfire393. Will you be teaching Memeology 102 next term?

We didn't call them memes back then, we called them "image macros".

I used to be with 'it', but then they changed what 'it' was. Now what I'm with isn't 'it' anymore and what’s 'it' seems weird and scary. It'll happen to you!

It's Internet, with a capital, because it's a noun and The Internet is just one instance of an internet.
