Why Chinese People Are Obsessed With 666 (The Internet Explained)


Written by:

666. The Chinese internet is obsessed with 666. Hello everyone. Welcome to “The Internet” with Goldthread. Today, we’re going to talk about why the Chinese internet is obsessed with 666. 666 is liu liu liu in Mandarin, which sounds like niu niu niu, which means cow cow cow, Chinese slang for powerful or awesome. To give more context, I’m going to summon Timmy, one of Goldthread’s reporters: 666 is a big thing ‘cause it sounds like “liu liu liu” in Mandarin. And liu liu liu means awesome. Like that’s dope, that’s awesome, that’s liu liu liu, that’s 666. I use it a lot when I talk to my friends. Let me show you on WeChat: In fact, there are a lot of 666 stickers on WeChat. But it’s not just on the internet, it’s in real life too. Now I’m sure you’re wondering, where did this all come from? Well, one story claims that this live streamer, Fireloli, started the whole trend. He would use 666 as a quick way to compliment his teammates during a video game. There’s even a hand gesture for 666. So, next time you see a 666 from the Chinese internet, now you know what it means: dope.

    666 sound like niu niu niu,but that's not the true one tho, 666 is liu liu liu = 溜溜溜 and its also sound liu liu liu , and  溜 means smooth, so when u do something very pro u do it smooth fast and easy, so then smooth mooth smooth = 溜溜溜=666=pro

  26. Liza QIU says:

    666(Liu liu liu)= 溜溜溜(Liu liu liu)。Since they have the same pronunciations, we use 666 as a short-term for 溜溜溜 which means awesome or great. Seriously, there is nothing about devil, it’s just for convenience and fun. Please don’t misunderstand. Thank you!
