Chupapi Munanyo (also known as Muñañyo) is a textbook example of a made-up word that has no real meaning, but somehow managed to become a part of the internet’s slang stock.
Although it conveys zero actual connotations, “Chupapi Munanyo” is commonly used to confuse people, and is often associated with prank videos, mostly circulating on TikTok and YouTube.
It has been popularized by TikTok user jaykindafunny8 and has been adopted by countless other content creators, both on TikTok and YouTube.
One of the earliest instances of the term being used was by the TikTok user jaykindafunny8, who video-taped going around fast food restaurants’ drive-thrus, attempting to order “Chupapi Munanyo” as a form of prank on the employees. The TikTok was uploaded on July 27th, 2020 and instantly gained widespread popularity.
The prank videos quickly caught on, which inspired Jay to create more content, featuring the interesting nonsensical expression.
Jaykindafunny8, the guy behind “Chupapi Muneno” later continued to produce prank videos of similar fashion on TikTok, and eventually became the self-proclaimed “CEO of Chupapi Munanyo”.
His hashtag #muñañyo has generated a whopping 4 billion collective views since 2020, with content being marked on all the popular social media sites, including TikTok and Instagram, while the prank is also a popular theme on YouTube, appearing in single uploads, as well as “Cupapi Munanyo” compilations.
