Forsen Fans Say “Vi Von Zulul”

About

Zulul is an edited variation of the LUL Twitch emote often spammed in chats with the phrase “Vi Von Zulul” by fans of Twitch streamer Forsen, which was spawned out of a viral photograph of Pastor Lul, a Nuer refugee who was discovered during a Twitch stream held in September 2016. Additionally, mentions of Zulul are often accompanied by references to the Ugandan action film Who Killed Captain Alex?.

Origin

In September 2016, Forsen discovered a page for Pastor Lul on the website TalkingBibles during a stream of the game Hearthstone (shown below). On the page, which has since been removed, the pastor was identified as a Nuer refugee from Sudan.
