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.


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, “Snoo*PING AS* usual I see”.


The Youtube Poop “Robotnik Has a Viagra Overdose”, uploaded in May 27th, 2007 by Stegblob[2] was the first to piece this phrase together which we now know as PINGAS.


However, when the video was first uploaded, the meme didn’t take off. It would take off a year later when McMaNGOS[3] uploaded the video entitled “THIS VIDEO CONTAINS WIN”; not only did it increase the popularity of PINGAS, but it also gave birth to a new meme christened THIS VIDEO CONTAINS X; the definition of the meme 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 mediums of the internet.
