Gondola is a mutation of Spurdo Spärde consisting of a head placed directly on a pair of legs with no arms or torso. The character does not speak and is usually depicted as melancholic or sad.


Gondola first originated on the Ylilauta /int/ board by an Italian poster (named Scary Pizza) in a now-deleted post from summer of 2015.[1] It was meant to be a new and less aggressive version of Spurdo who doesn't speak Spurdish, or at all; a melancholic man that doesn't talk, but only observes the world. On the VK Spurdo page, the following character profile is listed (sic throughout):[2]

Gondola was not a mistake

Gondolas are relaxed, harmless creatures that observe their environment. They rarely interfere anything, but just keep observing. They rarely talk, just look around and smile. This makes them very different from other creatures such as spurdo, that feel, Pepe, Yoba, etc.

Gondola is the silent walker. Having no hands he embodies the Taoist
principle of wu-wei (non-action) while his smiling facial expression
shows his utter and complete acceptance of the world as it is.


Gondola was posted on Krautchan /int/ and it was immediately welcomed by that group. It then spread through 4chan, VK and Facebook. There are many images in which Gondola is mistakenly speaking Spurdish, even though he is supposed to be a silent character. In another version, Gondola is pictured leaving and coming back to Ylilauta with the phrases "I leave Ylilauta forever" and/or "I'm back."
