Featured Episode


Chad or Chad Thundercock is a nickname for any attractive, popular men who are sexually successful with women. Similar to the term "Normies", Chad and his female counterpart Stacy are often used as pejoratives by those who consider themselves nonconformists on 4chan's /r9k/ board.


In Chicago, Illinois during the 1990s, "Chad" became a derogatory slang term for young, successful white men in their 20s and early 30s.[5] On June 1st, 2006, Urban Dictionary[1] user Mav Himself submitted an entry for "Chad," defining him as a guy who "goes to the bar to pick up chicks." On August 9th, 2013, Urban Dictionary[4] user Dr. James Russell submitted an entry for "Chad Thundercock," which defined the character as a "stereotypical high school/college alpha male" who is "successful with women" (shown below).

Virgin vs. Chad

Virgin vs. Chad, also known as Virgin Walk, refers to a series of illustrations comparing various "virgin" men with low self-confidence to their Chad Thundercock counterparts. After an MS Paint depiction of the walk began circulating online in March 2017, other illustrations of “virgin” behaviors began appearing on the /r9k/ board on 4chan.
