3 min reading

Exploring into the lives of the twins whose avatars were featured in the popular "Pomp Eet" and "domp eet" memes.

Pay tribute to the twins who created the famous "pomp eet" cryptocurrency meme. The two French television personalities passed away in the same week, both at the age of 72.

The two brothers were admitted to a Paris hospital on December 15 after infecting COVID-19, according to Le Monde. They were moved to the intensive care unit (ICU). Grichka passed away on December 28, and Igor passed away six days later, on January 3.

In the 1980s, the twins got popular in France after anchoring the famous TV show Temps X and publishing the best-selling book Clefs pour la science-fiction, or keys to science-fiction.

Although their TV personality, eccentric theoretical physics views, and noble Russian ancestry, the twins soared to the crypto market trend because of a viral meme.

As early as 2015, the twins' astonishing high cheekbones, puffy lips, and enlarged chins, which the brothers refused were the consequence of plastic surgery, rendered them internet meme superstars.

Before the crypto meme creators gained over, flamboyant, mysterious stories about the twins first showed up on Reddit and 4Chan. Grichka is featured in the most famous crypto meme as an almighty, supreme person adept at "bogging" or "pumping" crypto markets with just a single call.

The original February 2018 YouTube video has almost 4 million views, and the meme has been shared on Twitter and trade forums.

Luckily, the twins were more than delighted to play with the joke and the new popularity that the meme provided them.

They stated in a July 2017 interview with CNEWS that they predicted Bitcoin-like money in 1982 as part of their Temps X TV show. They are also said to have seen the secretive Bitcoin founder Satoshi Nakomoto in the 1990s.

According to Igor, who appeared on the TV show Non-Stop People, the iconic picture of his brother on the phone has been watched over one billion times, and Satoshi "probably had something to do with it going viral." There is no evidence that this interaction happened.

Though the twins were no strangers to the unusual or unconventional, the memes will live on.
