4Head | Gamer Glossary


Welcome to Gamer Glossary, where we break
down the phrases and memes seen throughout the gaming industry. Todays episode: 4head One of the most popular emotes on Twitch,
4head is actually the face of former League of Legends streamer Cadburry, who has since
moved on to the lucrative field of taking the same photo of his dog over and over on
instagram. The image is of Cadburry’s face with a huge
grin on it, and it started taking off in 2015, which oddly enough was almost a year after
Caburry last regularly streamed on the platform. The 4head emote has also undergone a pretty
big evolution in terms of it’s meaning. Originally, this was sort of a good natured
emote that was meant to show enjoyment of a joke, or when something fun happened on
stream. Like most emotes, it also eventually became
a sarcastic response to the same actions. However, in the last year or so, it has developed
an entirely new meaning. Thanks to streamers like Tim the Tat Man,
a man who looks like an extra from Sons of Anarchy, but acts like an Extra on Gossip Girls, the 4head emote has now come to sarcastically imply that something is foolish or doomed
to fail. A good example would be someone saying “They
have a pro team of players, and I’m playing with my 9 year old nephew. We Just charge at them in the open and win,
4head”. This is especially true when 4head is used
out loud by a streamer instead of in its emote form. So the next time a streamer announces something
followed by the words “4head”, just sit back and prepare to see a series of poor life
choices, live, in rapid succession. That’s all for this episode of Gamer Glossary! Thank you for watching, and as always another
entry is on the way!
