Where did the “hello” come from and how much did you manage to earn on it?

The word “hello” is now in fashion. “Preved Bear” – de facto – the official appeal of young (and not only) Internet users, a kind of caste and dissimilarity to others. It was “hello” that gave rise to the phenomenon, which was called the “author language” in some scientific papers. Nomad_Soul, Shutterstock.com Philologists sound the alarm – Russian literary language perishes! After “hello”, “bear”, “krosavcheg”, “zachod” and others like them, the phrase “author of zhhot” – the highest praise to the author of a work (even a post on a blog or forum) is perceived more or less normally. So where did this very “comedy” come from? The date of birth of this phenomenon is roughly known. It happened on February 7, 2006 and even described in several scientific theses. But we are simple people! Turn to Wikipedia. “The word“ preved ”was widely spread as a result of the appearance in the collective blog of Dirty.Ru of the Russian edition of the painting“ Bear Surprise ”by John Lurie in February 2006. The picture shows an anthropomorphic bear, which led tourists to have sex in nature. The bear lifted its front paws up and says: “Preved!” (In the original: “Surprise!”) The picture and the phrase generated a surge of creative activity in the Runet that gave rise to new erasable stamps (including secondary erasives) and distortion styles. Among the main new stamps can be called “bear”, “krosavcheg”, “kagdila?”, “Uchasneg.” The bear depicted in the picture is called the “bear.” From the point of view of researchers of the modern Internet, such phenomena are defined as Internet memes. The typical changes made to speech to impart a “Medvedov” sound include the following: – “AND” in an unstressed position turns into “E”, the consonant at the end is voiced: PRIVET –PREED. – “A” in an unstressed position turns into “O”, and the “CHICK” suffix into the “CHEG” suffix: the CRASH is the same. – Deaf consonants at the end of a word and in front of other deaf consonants in the middle of the word are transformed into voiced: puShkin – puZhken, participant – uchasneG. The general rule is that the letters are replaced so that the transcription of the word does not change (the way it is pronounced). “Preved” by the rules is pronounced “hello”, and “participant” and “participant” – “participant”, that is, in the same way. During the Internet conference of the President of the RF Putin on July 6, 2006, during which all willing users of the Runet asked him questions through the Yandex portal, the greatest number of votes (28424) scored the question “Preved, Vladimir Vladimirovich! How do you feel about the Bear? ”The question, as far as I know, was not asked of the president, but, as you can see, for the Internet audience he was at the very top of the rating! The popularity of the word in Internet circles has risen so much that many reputable portals, after registering a user, display a thank-you note with something like the following: “Welcome to the newly registered …” There is even an “Official Bear website”! And if there is a phenomenon, and even of such a grand scale, there will always be people who will try to make money on it. And more! And now, almost in all the major cities of Russia, the Internet cafes “Preved” or “Preved Medved” have appeared, I don’t even speak about the inscriptions on mugs, T-shirts, baseball caps. In outdoor advertising of goods and services designed for a youth audience, the word “Preved” has become a landmark, attracting attention, and therefore, it is becoming more and more common. Even in one of the bookstores in the city of Rostov-on-Don, I saw a poster about something like this: “Hello! We have the most comprehensive collection of computer and Internet literature in the south of Russia. ” Pictures and games with the theme “Preveveda-bear” are very great sold on mobile content portals, and songs with the name “Preved Bear” or a theme that beats “Prevede and the Bear” slowly but surely climb the first lines of popular music ratings. How much have you managed to make money on this, as marketers say, a “virus”? A search in Yandex for the phrase “how much a boon does” did not give anything, except for my question in my articles. Google, Rambler and others like them are also silent. Although the search query “preved” issued hundreds of thousands of pages. More detailed statistics on the popularity of “preved” can be found on the website “Preved”. I had to use indirect sources. The average expert estimates are about a billion. Dollars! And, although all experts agree on the fact that the peak of “prevede” has already passed, its potential is still quite high. So, gentlemen, businessmen (and not only them), hurry to earn! Here you have a “Preved Bear” worth a billion dollars! Who would have thought…
