This Is Where the 'When I'm Through With You, You Will See' Meme Comes From
The viral clip originates from a Nigerian gospel comedy skit.
We've done some digging on the origins of more viral clips-turned-memes from African films, and today's investigation hails from Nigeria in the late-2000s.
You've seen this clip paired perfectly with a Black Panther-inspired caption on Twitter—and it's another clip that has us dying of laughter every time it appears on our timelines.

Thanks to Chance The Rapper's recent question that has sparked conversation, we discovered the clip is from a series called Pride by Alfa Sule—a gospel comedy troupe from Ibadan, the capital city of Oyo State in Nigeria.

The dramatic and theatrical "soul saver" in the clip is comedian and actor, Ayo Ajewole. He screams and threatens, "When I'm through with you, you will see" to a passerby as he tries to evangelize and force the man to join his church consisting of himself and his wife—yes, two people.
Ajewole started the comedy/drama ministry with his brother, Femi in 2002. It was this skit from 2009, that you can watch in full below, that helped them rise to stardom in their community.
Although Alfa Sule has been silent on Facebook and Twitter for a few years now, it seems like they're still buzzing as the brothers continue to do interviews with Nigerian media outlets as recently as last year.
