About

Pingas[1] is a famous misheard phrase derived from the animated TV show Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog. It’s one of the classical subjects of YouTube Poop.

Origin

The phrase “Pingas” (often mistaken for “Penish”) originated from the episode “Boogey-Mania” of Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, where Dr. Robotnik catches Scratch and Grounder “snooping.” Dr. Robotnik then goes on to say, “Snooping as usual I see.” The second part of the word “snooping” combined with “as” creates “Pingas.”

 

Spread

The Youtube Poop “Robotnik Has a Viagra Overdose,” uploaded on May 27th, 2007 by Stegblob[2] was the first to piece this phrase together in the memetic format.

However, when the video was first uploaded, the meme didn’t take off. A year later, when McMaNGOS[3] uploaded the video entitled “THIS VIDEO CONTAINS WIN,” the popularity of PINGAS increased. This video is also the source of the meme called THIS VIDEO CONTAINS X; which involves a picture of Dr. Robotnik (with a face usually super-imposed onto the image) and a phrase or sound to create a song.

 

PINGAS was the first and most popular phrase to be used in YouTube Poops.[4] As a result of this, the phrase PINGAS has become widespread across many internet subcultures and forums.

Illustrations

While the meme began as sound-effect, it has also become a frequent subject of illustration. There are thousands of illustrations parodying PINGAS on the illustrators community deviantART.[5]
