“WHASSUP SUPER FRIENDS” VIRAL VIDEO TURNS 5 YEARS OLD TODAY-ISH.


The original iconic "Whassup?!!" Bud commercial aired on Monday Night Football on December 20th, 1999. The campaign ran all the way to 2002.

Right after that first "uuuuuu" syllable was uttered America was hooked. And "Wassuuuup?!!!" became a pop culture phenomenon. The catchphrase was featured pretty much everywhere and on anything like sound activated beer mugs, bobble heads, and other crap collectors' items! Even after the commercial campaign ended the memory still lived on in one of the first youtube viral hits of 2006 – “WHASSUP SUPER FRIENDS!!!

  1. I am confused. It aired in 1999, how does that make it 5 years old? Granted, I am terrible at math...

  3. I remember the bit that came after the "WASSSUUUUP" bit, it was funny but short lived. I'm talking about the "what are you doing?" no "What are you doing?" bit. It was some ethnic minority saying it in a bad accent. I think they stopped because someone pointed out it was racist. I still liked it.

  10. Good times back in high school with that "wasssuuuuup!" We'd annoy the hell out of teachers with it, just randomly yelling it into any open classroom while out on a bathroom break.
