Bingus is a bizarre inside joke which is quite popular nowadays. It is a hairless Canadian sphynx cat. Canadian Sphynx cat is light pink colored and has a lifespan of 8 to 12 years. In March 2020, this cat became a trend on the web after a video of a sphynx cat went viral.

Everyone was on the edits and short videos of sphynx cats. Later at the end of 2022, Corpse Husband used the term and its popularity once again surged. 

Corpse Husband is one of the top content creators on the web. Basically, he had never shown his real face on the internet and gone live with animated snaps. His deep voice and mysterious persona attracted more than 3 million followers. When he used the word bingus as an inside joke, every follower of his revitalized the trend of Bingus.

An Instagram account with the username ‘Subaru Rocks’ posted a video. Later, many memes accounts reposted the video and named the cat. From there, numerous other accounts reposted the meme as posts and stories on their various social accounts. This game struck the whole globe. 

The cat from the video was later confirmed to be from Tiktok. After much research, it was found that the actual owner of the video was Chinese. That Chinese person posted the video on his Douyin account (Chinese TikTok). But now he has deleted his account from the app and couldn’t be found. 

Sphynx cat’s real name isn’t known and this trend has given it a name that is globally known. Hence, now it is called a Bingus cat.
