What Is Edgar Meme
Edgar Meme is an old meme that takes its roots back to 2006. It became famous after a video named “Edgar’s Fall” was uploaded on YouTube. This video was uploaded before May 8, 2006 from Mexico. This video is one of popular videos of YouTube with more than 70 Million views as of now.
The video features Édgar Martinez and Fernando two Mexican cousins hiking in woods with their uncle Raúl. Raul is the person who captured this hilarious moment. The video starts with Edgar who was sharing his fear about crossing a bridge made from two long branches that crosses a small stream.
Fernando keeps teasing him saying that he will push Edger off the bridge. After a while Fernando again consoles Edgar that he was just kidding and he will not push him into the steam.
Somehow, the hesitant Edgar collects some courage to move forward, as soon as he moves forward on the bridge, Fernando starts moving the branch and poor Edgar loses his balance and falls down to the stream. Edgar curses Fernando intensively while getting out of water while Fernando keeps apologizing.
Origin Of Edgar Meme
After the video went viral on YouTube, the video was covered by various newspapers and TV channels in Mexico. Edgar, Fernando and Raul were even featured in commercial called La Venganza de Édgar (Édgar’s Revenge). Edgar fall video became so popular that there are even ringtones, games, parodies and remixes featuring it.
Besides this video meme, “Edgar Haircut” is also famous among the meme creators. It refers to a high bald tapered hairstyle which is sometimes also referred as Takuache.
