About

Ackchyually refers to an illustration of a neckbeard in which the word "actually" is intentionally misspelled so the reader reads it in the phlegmy cadence associated with nerd culture stereotypes. It is usually used as a reaction image to humorously express doubt at hopeful captions.

Origin

While it's unclear where the image first appeared, the earliest known use of "ackchyually" appeared on Funnyjunk on April 2nd, 2012[1] in a comment by pawnderp on a fan thread about dolan.


ACKCHYUALLY

Spread

For the next four and a half years, the image was used sparingly and sometimes self-deprecatingly by commenters correcting information in comment threads. It also regularly appeared on 4chan [3] during this time period, but the "Ackchually" picture did not gain massive exposure until November 2nd, 2016, when a 9GAG post[2] married the picture with the caption "Me: says anything. Internet:" (shown below). As of November 15th, 2016, the post has over 25,000 points.


Me: +says anything Internet: ACKCHYUALLY

After that post, "Ackchually" memes began appearing regularly on iFunny. [4]
