About

"Suh Dude", short for “what’s up dude?”, is an expression popularized by Vine comedian Nick Colletti and American dubstep producer Tanner Petulla (a.k.a Getter) in a series of video clips uploaded in 2015.

Origin

On March 23rd, 2015, Colletti uploaded a Vine of himself yelling “ayy dude!” in a phone conversation with Petulla, who then responds to his greeting with “suh dude" (pronounced suh-dew), a casual way of saying "sup dude," which in itself is a shorthand form of the expression "what's up, dude?" (shown below).



On November 13th, Colletti uploaded a Vine of himself saying the phrase "suh dude" and making peace signs at the camera (shown below, left). The same day, Petulla posted several clips of himself saying "suh dude" to Vine (shown below, right).



Spread

On November 13th, 2015, Viner G. Avocado posted the "suh dude" clips edited together.[2] On November 15th, Petulla posted the mashup video to his Facebook[5] page, where it received upwards of 8 million views and 80,000 shares over the next two months. On November 20th, the Funny Things YouTube[1] channel reuploaded the video (shown below). On November 22nd, Redditor guywhosaysyeah posted the video to the /r/videos[3] subreddit.



On December 4th, Petulla uploaded a Vine in which he yells "suh dude" at a man riding a self-balancing scooter down the sidewalk (shown below).



On December 28th, Petulla's retail site TrippyBurger[4] began selling "Suh Dude" merchandise (shown below).
