What is the origin of the 4HEad emote on Twitch?

The 4Head emote features a laughing face cut-out of League of Legends streamer Cadburry.

Cadburry was a popular LoL streamer back in the day and the 4head emote was uploaded by his community to FrankerFaceZ in 2015.

The reason the emote is called 4head is because Cadburry’s always been mocked for his large forehead by his viewers.

Fun fact: Cadburry’s Twitch Bio reads Streaming games for entertainment and to make my forehead famous.

Whenever Cadburry would make a stupid, cheesy, or dad joke, his chat would spam the emote. This is why the 4head emote become known as the face of dad jokes.

While the emote was still small in 2015 and only used by Cadburry’s audience, it did get picked up pretty quickly and 4head became one of the most popular emotes on Twitch.

The emote has since allowed for many variants to pop up such as 5head, 4weird, 4weirding and so on.

The word 4head and 5head have become part of regular Twitch slang and are commonly used words by streamers and viewers in the Twitch community.
