Jia Junpeng became instantly famous because of a phrase on the internet. July 16 2009 someone wrote a post on Baidu WoW (World of War craft) forum with the title “Jia Junpeng, your mom tells you to go home to eat” Up to 9 pm the next day it already had 243,000 replies and 6 million clicks.
The poster has the IP address of “222.94.255.*”. The content of the post only has 2 letters “rt” is the abbreviation for “see title” in Chinese. Who is Jia JunPeng? Why the post?
Nobody seems to have the definite answers for these questions. Netizens who replied to the post even changed their user names to be “Jia JunPeng’s aunt”, “Jia JunPeng’s grandpa”, “Jia JunPeng’s sister” etc. formed a huge Jia family. Photoshoped Kuso pictures of this topic were all over varies forums. For a no content post to become so popular over night, this is yet another unexplained china internet phenomenon. There is even a wikipedia page created on this. (link to the actual post)
However experienced Warcraft players said there might be deeper meaning behind this. Warcraft veteran players said “Jia Junpeng” = World of Warcraft, “your mom” = Warcraft’s current host Netease. User IDs appeared in the thread “Jia Junpeng’s father”, “Jia Junpeng’s father’s lover” respectively are Blizzard and World of Warcraft’s former host nine cities. As for “Jia Junpeng’s seventh and eighth auntie” are other online games.
Currently Warcraft has stopped serving the country more than 40 days. Current host Netease claims suffering heavy losses due to competitor’s attack. Five million Chinese WoW players have been waiting and are angry. So “Jia Junpeng, your mom tells you to go home to eat” has been interpreted by the WoW players as “Netease hurry up and start the World of Warcraft service” Even it is a bit crazy, it does make some sense.
