About

The Brap Sound Effect, also known as the Brap Noise or Brap Sound, refers to a fart noise from a video of a woman flatulating. It gained popularity in 2016 after it was edited into a video of a woman cosplaying as Overwatch character d.va twerking after saying "Nerf This!" Beginning in late 2019, the "Nerf This!" video was referenced in many high-quality rips on the SiIvaGunner channel. The brap noise also became a popular sound effect in 21st-Century Humor videos in early-to-mid-2020.

Origin

The "brap" sound originates from a video uploaded on December 3rd, 2013, by YouTuber[1] el_pinche_wero_korndog, titled "big butt woman farts." At 0:16 in the video, a woman laying on a bed farts (shown below), which is the sound effect used in memes. One commenter described the sound as "… a mix of shuffling a deck of cards and squirting mustard from a near-empty bottle."[2] The video has since received over 1 million views, 8,500 likes and 1,500 comments in roughly seven years.



Nerf This!

On July 23rd, 2016, cosplayer ChelHellbunny uploaded a since-deleted video to YouTube of herself cosplaying as Overwatch character d.va. In the video, she said, "Nerf This!" in reference to one of d.va's voice lines before slapping her buttocks and twerking.[3] On August 20th, YouTuber[4] Astroboy uploaded an edit of the video to include the brap noise while ChelHellBunny twerks, receiving over 319,000 views in roughly four years (shown below). On August 21st, Redditor[5] NationsCake posted the clip to the /r/YouTubeHaiku subreddit, accumulating over 1,000 upvotes in six months. On August 24th, YouTuber[6] Denny reuploaded the video, receiving over 1.5 million views, 16,000 likes and 1,600 comments in the same time period.



Spread

In July 2018, various edits of the "Nerf This!" video were created and spread online. On July 17th, 2018, vocoded edit uploaded by Ultimate Spiderman Menu Theme garnered over 390,000 views in two years (shown below, right).[7] Another edit uploaded on July 22nd, 2018 by BlueBeluga received more than 190,000 views in the same period (shown below, left).[8]



The "Nerf This" video was popularized on the SiIvaGunner in August-September 2019 as a bait-and-switch source. The first few high-quality rips used the vocoded brap edit uploaded by YouTuber[9] Ultimate Spiderman Menu Theme, with the first rip on August 21st, 2019, indirectly referencing the melody of the said brap. The second rip, uploaded by YouTuber[10] SiIvaGunner on August 25th, 2018, parodied the song "Still Alive" from Portal using the vocoded edit, gaining more than 100,000 views in over two years (shown below, left). On September 1st, a parody of the Undertale theme song "For The Fans" using the original brap noise was uploaded, receiving more than 68,000 views and 1,600 dislikes in eleven months (shown below, right).[11]



The "Nerf This!" rips were met with mixed reception, with several videos having a low like-to-dislike ratio. As of September 2nd, 2020, over 65 rips referencing the "Nerf This!" video / brap sound effect have been uploaded.[12]

On April 9th, 2020, the brap noise was uploaded by YouTuber[13] SkyDude HD with the title "Brap sound effect." It received over 670,000 views in three months (shown below).



In April 2020, the brap noise became frequently used in 21st-Century Humor videos (examples shown below).
