Social media virality is what gives birth to a trend. And the Internet is the most bizarre place. We’ve witnessed the craziest trends ranging from Binod to Barbenheimer. While the viral moments could originate from recent happenings in the world, but occasionally, there’s a resurgence of something from the past that just blows up on the internet. The current fad is that of Bhupendra Jogi. You will spot this name almost everywhere since memes and recreations of his iconic video are flooding social media. The amusing part is that the original video is about four years old but it has suddenly blown up on the internet.
The OG Video
The viral video was originally captured during the Madhya Pradesh elections in 2018. A YouTube channel by the name “The Lallantop” posted this video wherein an interviewer from their team is seen asking people how they feel regarding the BJP’s claim that the roads of Madhya Pradesh are better than America’s. During the interaction, Bhupendra came ahead and praised the state’s roads saying they are definitely better than the US.
The interviewer then asked for his name to which he responded saying “Bhupendra Jogi.” Then he was asked the names of places he had visited in the US. His response was simple yet unforgettable. He answered ‘Bhupendra Jogi,’ yet again. And this marked the birth of an internet sensation. For years, the video remained relatively dormant and now suddenly came into the spotlight. Thus, Bhupendra Jogi became a household name due to his candid conversation with the Lallantop team.
His virality is based on his straightforward response and memorable introduction, which captured the hearts of people. Additionally, the absurdity of the situation featuring Bhupendra’s confidence has struck a chord with people yet again.
As Bhupendra Jogi reclaims his viral fame, the internet’s creative minds are hard at work churning out memes and remixes of the original video.
