The latest sensation takes a dark turn with Clorox-chan and Tide Pod-chan, both of which are associated with bleach drinking. While both adorable characters are closely linked, they have different origins.

 

Who is Tide Pod-Chan?

Most young, hip internet users are familiar with the Tide Pod challenge, which involves popping a detergent packet in your mouth. No, most of the “challengers” are not suicidal. Despite most Tide Pod challenge videos being parodies, the U.S Poison Control Center reported that 55 teens intentional ate detergent packets in 2017 – their reasons were not reported.

Now, let’s back to Tide Pod-chan! As part of a joke, Instagram user shared a drawing of her on January 1, 2018 with a “do not eat” warning.

 

Azumi would cosplay as Tide Pod-chan a day later.

 

Naturally, the internet pounced on Tide Pod-chan like a pack of hungry children at a laundromat:

Man, that looks delicious…I wish I had a tasty beverage to wash that packet down with…

 

Meet Clorox-chan

Bleach drinking is commonly used internet adage that describes a person’s displeasure with something. Watched Boku no Pico? Better reach for the bleach. Hunter x Hunter is on hiatus again? Better sip on some bleach! Someone likes something you hate? BLEACH FOR MY ENEMIES!! You get the point.

Artist Kuma Artsu gave Clorox an anime makeover, with the sultry Clorox-chan wondering why people keep trying to drink her.

 

And what do you know, Pervychu Alice cosplayed as Clorox-chan the next day!

 

Other artists gave Clorox-chan a darker twist, depicting her as a sadist luring you to a painful death.

 

What will artists personify next?
