Facefist is a derivative of the Facepalm meme. The term "facefist" has arisen in a number of places online, independent of one another. Most iterations of the meme have relatively low views, but very visible spread.



On October 19th, 2007, Youtuber ChineseKiwi uploaded a video entitled Facefist, in which he thrusts a fist into his forehead.

This tends to be your reaction when you can't quite believe what someone has said / written in a forum..like for example that you read that someone's friends has a MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE tattoo. Thank God for tattoo removal these days…..You can use this as a reaction instead of a normal "head against brick wall" pic if you like on your forums. I don't care.

As of May 10th, 2010, the video has been hosted on Youtube for nearly three years and only has 400 views. Because of the low views, it is unlikely that this video did much to popularize the term.


The Adult Swim cartoon Metalocalypse, centers around a fictional metal band called Dethklok. On October 25th, 2007, the band released The Dethalbum featuring a track entitled "Face Fisted."

On October 9th, 2008, Gawker.com published "The Best of Sad Floor Traders" which was quickly posted to Fark.com with the headline Why the sad face? A photo gallery of the best of the sad-faced stock traders. Voting enabled in case you have captions. A number of Farkers reposted images from the Gawker piece, and added their own captions.

TotalFarker GoDawgs! reposted the following photo, with the caption, "facefist?" This image was later featured in the single topic blog "Sad Guys on the Trading Floor."

The following day, October 10th, 2008, the photo was added to motivatedphotos.com with the caption "Fistpalm: when facepalm just doesn't cut it."

Nearly 5 months passed before another motivatedphotos user would create a correction of the image, "That's Fistface, Fucktard…" on March 3rd 2009.

On March 26th, 2009 another correction was created, this time reading "Facefist! (facepalm, fistface!) facepalm fail + fistface fail = EPIC FAIL!"

Another variant of the same image has also been seen on cheezburger.com

On September 1st, righter than u created an Urban Dictionary entry for facefist, although as of May 10th, 2010, there is only one vote up and one vote down.
