Wondering about how the “Pink Guy” or as everyone else might know him, Filthy Frank isn’t anywhere to be seen these days?
Some even think that Filthy Frank is dead. However, that’s not the case here. If people say that Frank is dead, it would be like saying Batman is dead while Bruce Wayne is still alive.
All that’s possible is retirement. But is Filthy Frank an exception here?
Is Filthy Frank Dead? 2021 Update
The short answer here is no; Filthy Frank (Pink Guy) is not dead, at least not the person who introduced him in the first place.
But in order to understand the whole deal, people have to first know how Frank came into action first.
But before doing so, let’s quickly learn about where Frank is these days and when he made his last appearance.
The most recent that people saw of the guy in a pink morph suit, jumping around town as in 2017.
Since then, there are no new videos coming around, so naturally, people began thinking that the one-time global meme provider persona is dead.
Now, let’s unwind.
Who Is Filthy Frank?
His real name is George Kusunoki Miller.
Yes, the guy who plays the character is someone else in real life, but that might not come as a shock for most.
Frank’s internet journey began in 2011 when Miller decided to get into an absurd character that would go around, doing as offensive things as possible.
Scaring people left and right in laundry shops, restaurants, making obscene gestures, twerking in front of couples, and so on. You get the idea.
Initially, Frank did attract a moderate level of attention to himself. Everything changed, however, when he introduced Harlem Shake to the world.
Pink Guy (Filthy Frank) Started Harlem Shake
Yes, the infamous form of wild dancing that took the internet world by storm in the mid-2010s, and it was the Pink Guy who introduced it to everyone.
On February 2, 2013, Miller (Frank) uploaded a video with three other costumed friends and danced to a song called Harlem Shake produced by Baauer.
The video was short, but it managed to create a wave of interest among people who followed suit and began uploading their version of the Harlem Shake meme.
Today, the video has over 63 million views on Miller’s first YouTube channel DizastaMusic.
Th Harlem Shake meme carried on for years.
Now, we know that the Harlem Shake dance itself has been around for over three decades now. But the Pink Guy revamped it into something that everyone could do.
Corporate offices, firemen, and college students alike began uploading their crazy “Do The Harlem Shake” video on YouTube.
Even YouTube introduced a trick where people could type “Do The Harlem Shake” in the search bar, and the YouTube screen would dance up and down until it paused.
However, the effect seems to have gone out for some time now.
The Unofficial Death Of Filthy Frank
After a couple of years of running the Pink Guy show on YouTube, Filthy Frank’s unofficial death came in December of 2017.
By that time, Japan-born internet personality had already ceased to upload any new videos to his channel DizastaMusic because of multiple copyright claims and community strikes.
However, he continued the show on his other channel called TVFilthyFrank. But, in December of 2017, Miller revealed that he was retiring from making comedy videos.
Miller stated that he had lost personal interest in making such comedy sketches on the internet and was facing serious health conditions that he needed to address as well.
But, there’s always a chance that Filthy Frank might come back to life. But until then, RIP Filthy Frank (2011-2017) and thank you for giving the world a meme that will live for decades to come.
