His life started in 2005 as a B&W character in a comic series titled "Boys' Club". The comic was created by Matt Furie.(dude your last name is pretty badass!) Pepe made the transition from run-of-the-mill comic character to internet trend. That happened in a comic when Pepe is seen pulling his pants all the way down to his ankles while urinating. This became popular on the website 4chan.
The last panel had a dialogue:
later that day:
someone, possibly Pepe's friend?: hey pepe - i heard you pull yer pants down all the way to go pee.
Pepe: feels good man.
