Fugu Fish or Don't Pee On The Floor, Use The Commodore is a viral video of an ugly-looking yellow fish in a tank singing a song that states, "Don't pee on the floor, use the commodore." It first went viral as a TikTok sound in early 2022, though the video originally comes from the 2001 video game Stupid Invaders.
On December 15th, 2000, the video game Stupid Invaders was released by Ubisoft for the European market. A month later, it was additionally released in North America. The game was based on a French animated cartoon called Space Goofs, which premiered in 1997. Stupid Invaders involved aliens and their attempts to return to space, labeled under the umbrella of adventure games.
During one point in the game, the player is able to interact with a fishbowl in a lab. Once clicked on, a small cut scene takes place involving the pufferfish in the fishbowl singing a song with the lyrics, "Don't pee on the floor, use the commodore." The fish was voiced by Charlie Adler, a notable voice actor who'd additionally voiced characters within Ben 10, Cow and Chicken, AAAHH!!! Real Monsters, among other, classic Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon cartoons of the 90s ad 2000s.
On October 1st, 2013, the YouTube channel eygrett uploaded the singing pufferfish, earning roughly 27,600 views over the course of nine years (shown below).
In early 2022, the video resurfaced online due to a post made by Redditor me-does-a-thing on March 26th within the /r/cursedvideos subreddit. The post was titled, "cursed_pufferfish," and earned roughly 1,700 upvotes over the course of thirteen days.
