What is the Origin of Sadge
Despite how long Pepe the Frog has been around, Sadge is actually quite a new addition. Pepe the Frog made his debut in 2005 when Matt Furie uploaded his webcomic onto his MySpace page. In 2008, 4Chan picked up on Pepe the Frog and began using him as a meme. It wasn’t until 2015 that Pepe’s popularity spilled past 4Chan and he became a global meme phenomenon.
Sadge itself was first uploaded onto BTTV in January of 2020 by a user named Redshell. Six days later it was on FrankerFaceZ as well. It was picked up by huge streamer Forsen’s community almost immediately, and from then it became one of the most popular emotes on Twitch.
