What is the Origin of 4Head?

4Head is a crop of a photo of a LoL streamer named Cadburry. It’s a cut-out of his face, where he has a laughing expression. The emote came to be called 4Head because of Cadburry’s big forehead, which his community made a meme out of way back in 2015.

Cadburry used to be a well-loved in the League of Legends Twitch community, and it was during this time that a member of his community first uploaded the emote to FrankerFaceZ. Although it has been four years since Cadburry has streamed on Twitch, his bio still says that he streams games for entertainment and to make his forehead famous.

When Cadburry used to make corny/cheese/dad jokes during his streams, his chat used to spam the 4Head emote. This became the origin of the 4Head emote. Soon, its popularity picked up outside of the Cadburry community and it became one of the most widely used emotes on the platform.

Nowadays, there are many new variants of the emote like 3Head, 5Head, and 4Weird. It has become widely adopted in Twitch popular culture and slang.
