About

Big Man Tyrone is a nickname given to entrepreneur Gordon Hurd, who gained much online notoriety for creating testimonial videos on the online marketplace Fiverr, which is frequently enlisted to create humorous anime-related videos by users in the /a/ (anime) and /s4s/ (shit 4chan says) boards on 4chan.

Origin

In April 2013, Australian-based Fiverr[1] user Roger Stockburger created a page advertising his $5 testimonial video service, in which customers can send a 30 second script to be read in front of their choice of seven different background images (shown below, left). In September, United Kingdom-based Fiverr[2] user Gordon Hurd created a page for another $5 testimonial service (shown below, right).

On December 10th, 2013, YouTuber Ryan Pollard uploaded a testimonial by Stockburger pronouncing the anime Kill la Kill the "cartoon of the year" (shown below). In the first two months, the video received over 68,000 views and 110 comments.



Spread

On December 17th, 2013, YouTuber Burotaku uploaded a testimonial video by Hurd in which he calls himself Tyrone and expresses his appreciation for "lolicon" (shown below, left). After the video was shared on 4chan, users began referring to Hurd with the nickname "Tyrone." On December 25th, YouTuber SporeDotCam YTPs uploaded a YouTube poop edit of one of Stockburger's testimonials (shown below, right).



On January 29th, 2014, the otaku news blog Japanator[3] published an article about the 4chan testimonial videos, which included interviews with both Stockburger and Hurd who revealed they were aware of their presence on 4chan and YouTube. The same day, the author submitted the article to the /r/anime[4] subreddit, where it gathered more than 100 up votes and 10 comments in the following month. On February 11th, a page for Rog and Tyrone was created on the Internet culture wiki site Encyclopedia Dramatica.[5]

On February 13th 2014, original YouTuber, Ryan Pollard, uploaded a final video to his Rog and Tyrone series as both a send-off, and a parody of the final scene of Neon Genesis Evangelion with an additional reference to Cowboy Bebop (shown below).

In some dates between February and March 2014, Tyrone suspended his account due to over requests[6]. Therefore he started a new channel on youtube to respond other orders.[7]
