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.”
The Youtube Poop “Robotnik Has a Viagra Overdose,” uploaded on May 27th, 2007 by Stegblob 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 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.
