Green de la Bean, also known as the Bean or Beaned, refers to a bait-and-switch-like image of a cartoon green bean with text declaring that the reader has been "beaned". Originating on Facebook posts, this meme has since moved on to the SiIvaGunner channel.
Rips[edit | edit source]
When Green de la Bean appears, a song bass-boosted, volume-boosted, and saturated to the point of unidentifiability plays alongside it, as well as strange visuals involving the bean image, in an attempt to scare the viewer. Most of the time, the appearance of Green de la Bean is announced with a voice (actually a clip from the song "U Guessed It" by OG Maco) yelling "Bitch, you guessed it!", or a clip from the song "No Words" by Hopsin of Hopsin yelling "Turn up!", before cutting to the beaning. This meme first appeared in the "Fun Park Massive - No One Can Stop Mr. Domino!" rip.
Most of the community reacted negatively to the meme. On September 9, 2016, the rip "Ground Theme (Super Mario Bros.) - Super Smash Bros. Brawl" was flagged and then taken down by YouTube. Reacting to this, SiIvaGunner removed every rip containing the Green de la Bean meme. On the following day, the channel held a Bean Mourning Day, dedicated to remembering the Bean's death.
Rips that indirectly reference the Green de la Bean meme appeared after the removal of the meme, usually by incorporating "U Guessed It" into the rip.
The Bean has reappeared several times during The SiIvaGunner Christmas Comeback Crisis, notably as a joycon controller in the rip "Opening - Nintendo Switch Presentation" on January 13, 2017, but the bass-boosted song was lowered in volume. The Stringbots are also heavily inspired by the Bean.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Egghead could be seen as a successor of sorts to the Bean, as he is also a character that appears at random and jumpscares the viewers. This is especially so for his appearances in mid-2017, where he would frequently play an earrape sound effect. However, Egghead did not receive as much hate as the Bean, likely due to Egghead's appearances being more telegraphed.
- It was probably intented for Mr Rental to be the canonical explaination to Green de la Bean's death, as seen in the storyboard of the scrapped Mr Rental finale, the Bean was still alive during the fight between Mr Rental and Mr Own's but on the very next shot his grave is shown next to Mr Own's, probably meaning that he got killed during the fight.
