Meet The Man Behind The Viral ‘Smash Mouth’ And ‘Evanescence’ Memes

Posted October 19, 2016 by Josh Drespling in Empire Extreme News Feed

If you have logged on to Facebook over the last few days, there is a good chance that you have seen a man with a neck-beard singing Smash Mouth’s ‘All Star’ over songs like Evanescance’s ‘Bring Me To Life’ and Adele’s ‘Hello’.

That man is Jon Suadno. His videos have been seen by tens of millions of people in a mere matter of days and have graced the front page of Reddit on multiple occasions. The Smash Mouth classic seems to fit over virtually any song you apply it to with his signature touch. He has quickly become the current most popular meme online and his videos have been shared on pages like MrTechicalDifficult, where it garnered more than six million views in only a few hours.

Sudano, an accomplished drummer in his own right, expressed disbelief that the videos have garnered as much attention as they have. “I thought the first video would only get ten likes or something” he said. Sudano’s videos come during the height of a contentious election season where many people turn to humor to escape an otherwise tense environment on Facebook.

For their part, Smash Mouth has yet to respond to the viral craze and it’s unknown if they have seen his videos. During our interview with him, Sudano gave kudos to the band and credited them as one of his favorite acts. “Honestly I grew up with the greatness that is Smash Mouth.” When he was asked, Sudano said he would love to perform with the band if he was given the opportunity.
