Floppy Trash Dove (Purple Bird) Sticker Story
The Trash Dove was created by artist Syd Weiler on her drawing livestream back in September, and she turned it into an iPhone sticker pack in January. It didn’t go viral, though, until the Thai internet got a hold of it last Wednesday.
As for how it is popular, it is because some people somehow found the sticker (this one in particular) very annoying.
Many other people think the sticker is cool and/or it’s funny how someone got annoyed over this and began spamming with it in comments section. This went viral when popular Facebook pages joined the spamming festival and soon enough it’s all over Facebook.
It was the headbanging version of the bird that really took off. English-language Thai news site Khao Sod English reported that Thai netizens “filled entire comments sections” with the graphic.
Why? It’s not really clear, but Khao Sod offers a partial explanation: “One theory is that the word for bird, nok, is also used to describe someone hopelessly single or suffering from unrequited love.”
On a side note, there’s also an issue where the sticker creator Syd Weller posted a thank you image for Thai people who made it so popular. The image is the Trash Dove holding Thai flag with its leg, which some Thai people found offensive*. Some other people think it’s nonsense to get offended over this, so as a result, there was a number of dramas in Thai Facebook about the issue. In the end, Syd Weller apologized for it on her Facebook page.
