He’s big. He’s Chungus. He’s on the Playstation 4.
Big Chungus Meme Origins
What looks like a photoshopped image of the iconic character is actually taken from a real cartoon. The original fat Bugs Bunny comes from a few frames of Wabbit Troubles. Bugs Bunny transforms himself into his fat alter ego to poke fun at the rotund Elmer Fudd, who’s hunting him down throughout the episode.
The Big Chungus meme started when a photo made by Reddit user GaryTheTaco created an image of a fat bugs bunny on a Playstation 4 game cover in March of 2018. As far as we know, Big Chungus is a PS4 exclusive, meaning Sony has yet again bested Microsoft at the meme game. Another smaller detail is the inclusion of everyone’s favorite Edgelord, Dane, from the Devil May Cry series. Does he make a minor cameo appearance? Is he a full on co-op character? We may never know.
The meme would go on to viral status when a well-meaning mom walked into her local Gamestop and asked an employee if they had a copy of Big Chungus in stock, based on the screenshot of the text message below.
It’s worth noting that Big Chungus is rated “Adults Only” and would actually not be allowed to be sold at retail stores even if it were real.

The big boy of the PS4 isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Even if this meme drops off in popularity soon, it has the potential for an infinite amount of comebacks.
