PepeLaugh is a popular emote from the Pepe the Frog family that can be seen when browser extensions such as FrankerFaceZ and BetterTTV are installed.
The PepeLaugh emote features Pepe the frog with a big smile and teary eyes, indicating that one is feeling very happy or nostalgic.
PepeLaugh can be used as an alternative to the native-to-Twitch LUL emote.
The PepeLaugh is often compared to the Crying Laughing emoji.
On Twitch chat, the PepeLaugh is often used alongside the phrase “Here it comes”.
The origin of PepeLaugh dates back to the origin of the Pepe the Frog meme on the internet. Pepe the frog is an amphibian illustration that was originally created by Matt Furie and has since taken a life of its own on the internet as a meme.
Matt Furie first uploaded a Pepe the frog comic called ‘Boys club’ to his MySpace back in 2005. It was later picked up by the 4chan messageboards in 2008 and the amphibian became a viral internet meme in 2015.
Since 2017, the pepe frog has also been a big part of Twitch culture. The first pepe the frog emote that was added was the MonkaS emote, which MonkaSenpai added in 2016.
After going viral through Forsen’s Twitch chat, many variations of the Monka and Pepe emotes started popping up on Twitch.
PepeLaugh is one of those variations and was added to BetterTTV browser extension on the 9th of December 2017.
Later, it was also added to the FrankerFaceZ browser extension on July 10th 2018.
The emote is enabled on over 64,000 channels through BetterTTV and 23,000 channels through FrankerFaceZ.
