Just you wait.

Chris, being an attention whore of sorts, has frequently managed to find him and his creation in the media spotlight. Whether it be television, newspapers, magazines or, of course, the Internet, if Chris can find some way to get his 15 minutes of fame, he'll do it.

Chris's legendary status as the first mainstream lolcow also catches the attention of many Internet commentator and entertainers, who would often include him and his creations from as a tongue-in-cheek cameo to a major multi-part documentary.

Traditional media

Richmond Times-Dispatch

Main article: IT TOOK A TALKING BEAR TO GIVE THE NAME A YOUNG BOY LOVES

In 1993, the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper ran an article detailing how Chris changed his name from "Christopher" to "Christian". This was Chris's first known appearance in media.

Sonic the Hedgehog Watch & Win Sweepstakes

Chris's second appearance in the media was a news report in 1994 chronicling Chris's first victory, winning a contest celebrating one of the Sonic the Hedgehog cartoons.

Chris Chan in the PokéNews

Main article: Chris Chan in the PokéNews

In 1999, Chris made his third appearance in a news report on the growing success of the Pokémon Trading Card Game. He was 17 years old at the time, and he was playing Pokémon cards with kids as young as 8.

Nintendo Power Magazine

Main article: Nintendo Power Magazine

Twice, Chris has used the magazine Nintendo Power to get himself attention. First was a letter Chris wrote telling Nintendo how he used a video game to cure his fear of talking to girls. The second time detailed Chris's Animal Crossing video, though there he was known as Sonichu, not Chris.

Shoujo Beat

Main article: Shoujo Beat

Chris sent a letter to an anime-themed magazine that got published in its November 2005 issue. In it, he complains about JERKS taking away all the pretty boyfriend-free girls and leaving him to be a lonesome virgin. A response was published in the March 2006 issue, in which the writer instructs Chris on the error of his ways.

Daily Progress

2007

Admit it, if you've never heard of Chris before, would you think that they were actually referring to a 25-year-old man here?

On 14 July 2007, Chris and Barb were mentioned in their local newspaper, the Charlottesville Daily Progress.[1]

The line began forming outside the door around 2 p.m., three hours before the SPCA's new rummage shop in Charlottesville opened for a special sneak preview Friday.

By 4:45, nearly 50 people were waiting in line, while about 30 volunteers inside put the finishing touches in place.

"I've got my eye on the riding mower right there," said Barry Ross as he stood at the head of the line, looking through the window at a red tractor.

And right behind Ross, Christian and Barbara Chandler were waiting to shop. Christian wanted toys and video games, while his mother wanted to look for fabric.

2017

A decade later, on 16 September 2017, Chris was photographed by Daily Progress staff at a Cville Pride event.[2]

Toucher and Rich

Main article: Toucher and Rich Segment

On 12 May 2009 Chris's antics became so famous that it sparked the interest of a radio podcast in Boston. The whole media furor was sparked by the "I Got A Fish" video. However, most of the show covered Chris's videos addressed to Ivy.[3]

Kevin and Bean

Main article: The Kevin and Bean Show Segment

One of Chris's Captain's Logs is dissected by the hosts Kevin and Bean. Notably, the video in question required a full two minutes dedicated to disclaimers, as well as censoring of certain unairable acts.

Web Soup

Main article: For G4s Web Soup

Once again, Chris's "I Got A Fish" video was briefly featured, this time on G4's Web Soup on 2 July 2009. While the segment lasted less than 30 seconds, Chris initially felt honored and used the opportunity to try to score some china, only to belatedly realize after he uploaded an entire video about it that shows like Web Soup are devoted to mocking people like him.

Save McIntire Park

Main article: McIntire Park

In July 2009, Chris briefly appears in the background of a news segment about saving McIntire Park, Charlottesville. Later, Chris receives recognition at a council meeting for drawing a large sign.

Slylock Fox

If you didn't know who Chris was, would you think anything of this?

On 25 September 2011, Slylock Fox & Comics for Kids, a comic strip about comic strips published by King Features Syndicate, featured a black-and-white image[4] of Sonichu in the "Your Drawing" panel. The illustration, which ran in thousands of papers nationwide, was accompanied by text, which read: "Today's terrific artist is Christian Weston Chandler, Age 9." The strip's author, Bob Weber Jr., admitted on the Comics Curmudgeon blog[5] that he fully believed that the "artist" was 9 (rather than 29) when he selected the drawing out of the dozens that are submitted to the strip every week.

Opie & Anthony

Main article: Opie and Anthony

On 27 May 2009, The Opie & Anthony Show on Sirius XM Radio, which was broadcast to 18.5 million units, did a commentary segment on Chris's video response to drinking his own cum and shitting his adult diapers. It is unknown whether he's realized that his autistic antics have technically been broadcast to low earth orbit.

Houston Press

On 12 July 2012, the Houston Press published an article on Rex Nabours III of defunct folk punk band Guwange and his attempts to raise money for sick children. Nabours was quoted in the article saying "I did a Christian Weston Chandler (the Sonichu guy) covers album earlier this year with the intent of giving any money I made off of it to Autism-related charities because the dude is basically blackface for autism".[6]

Failosophy

Featured pic

MTV's show Failosophy mocked Internet idiots like Chris. While the show lasted a mere 3 months due to negative reception, one of his Tomgirl pics memorably and unsurprisingly showed up in the 4th episode of the show, viewed by almost a million people. Jump to 1:22 for his appearance.


Chris-Chan on MTV's Failosophy


Chris, unusually, gave a response via Facebook.

I had no ill will against MTV. I enjoyed the women in "Undressed"; I like Daria; the dating game show was fun to watch, and to put them way at the bottom, Beavis and Butt-Head were so stupid, it became crazy-funny.

I have been the victim of Trolling/Cyber-Bullying for the past greater than five years. I get that whatever gets onto the internet is near impossible to remove.

And now I find that among the shit I was trolled of, this ONE photograph, which was originally taken for a WOMAN years ago, gets compared with a literal meat-head and a plush-head, and is made available on iTunes for two dollars!

From the one woman's words, Jamie Lee... I don't know what is worse, that she would not date me, or that she would put me in jail over a freaking couch. Lee, My Once Good Name was actually Jailed, because of the SET UPS those Anonymous, LULZy, Shit-Faced TROLLS. At least I was more clean, sexy and gung-ho than either of the ugly, grimy freak shows I was compared with.

If I did not have a very good day beforehand today, I would seriously be calling my Attorney on your damn show's ass.

To this day, Chris has not followed up on this threat of legal action. The episode with Chris in it also remains available on iTunes.

OK K.O.! Let's Be Heroes

The original storyboard initially made the reference more blatant

In the pilot episode "Lakewood Plaza Turbo", Carol tells his son K.O. to defend the plaza "to the extreme", a direct reference to the cover of Sonichu #0. This was confirmed by the show's creator, Ian Jones-Quartey, who later stated that the reference was "even more blatant in the original storyboard".[7]

A local TV broadcast gave a brief report on the destruction of Chris's house.


Fire at 14 Branchland Court


New York Magazine

On 19 July 2016, New York magazine featured an article on its website, "Kiwi Farms, the Web's Biggest Community of Stalkers". The article was meant as an attack on Kiwi Farms, inaccurately describing it as a vague group across multiple websites instead a single forum community. However, in describing the site's origins and operations, it largely focuses on Chris himself and the "torment" he faced from trolls during his internet heyday. There is also a mention of A-Log and his fallout with other Christorians.

The article is notably one of the few pieces of positive press Chris has received since his rise to internet fame. In addition to attacking his trolls, the author, Margaret Pless, describes him in sympathetic terms such as "artist, gamer, and creative type" and fails to mention his horrific opinions, statements, or actions. Pless is also under the impression that Chris is legitimately transgender, and accordingly refers to him as "Christine" and with female pronouns.

Sonic Boom

Chris finally meets his hero.

On 10 December 2016, an episode of Sonic Boom called "The Biggest Fan" premiered on Cartoon Network. The episode features a character named Mark the Tapir that parodies the Sonic fanbase. Mark is depicted in the episode as a creepy, obsessive stalker who kidnaps Sonic and forces him to act out fanfiction that he wrote. While the character is likely intended as a general parody, he has many similarities to Chris in particular. He closely resembles pre-tomgirl Chris, and one scene seems to reference the "blue arms" debacle. Mark even orders an orange soda during one scene, though this is probably an unintentional reference.

Chris acknowledged the parody on December 13, 2016. He stated that he saw no resemblance between himself and the Mark character, and that he is "not mental or crazy like that at all."

The episode's writers, Doug Liebilch and Bill Freiberger, responded to questions on Twitter about the episode. Liebilch said that "He's not based on anyone specific. Just an obsessive fan character." Freiberger also denied that Mark was based on Chris, and unlike Liebilch, he knows who Chris is, saying "Mark is 100% NOT based on CWC. He is a general fan type. We've done many blue arm jokes in the series. Not a clue."

UVA Remembers Pulse

On 12 June 2017 Chris was interviewed at this event, quoted on text and video, by the same station which had interviewed him decades earlier for the Sonic the Hedgehog Watch & Win Sweepstakes.

dodie - Monster


Sonichu makes a cameo in dodie's music video for "Monster", around the 47-second mark. He appears on a poster as one of the many monsters looking for love. The text on the poster (though partially covered by others) appears to say that he is "Looking for a boyfriend-free monster", indicating some familiarity with Chris's antics.


MONSTER by dodie


In the behind the scene video, hosted by the music video's director, we are given a clearer picture of the poster at the 11:50 mark. The cameo, who was named "Mayor CWC", was claimed by the director to be included out of peer pressure.

Chris tops the site's list of 20 Worst Internet Losers, posted 13 July 2010.

There could be no other choice to close out this list. Christian Weston Chandler, aka Chris-Chan, is like every horrible thing about the Internet made flesh. Lives with his parents, sponges off the government and uses the cash for PlayStation 3 games and sex toys, walks around the mall with his Game Boy looking for girlfriends, posts incoherent YouTube videos of himself humping an anime bodypillow and yelling “Oh, Julie,” the list will go on forever. C.W.C. is the ne plus ultra of Web losers.

Something Awful

Something Awful is a comedy website where Chris was first revealed to the world on October 26, 2007.

Subject Matter Reupload by Owldof Hootler


The last episode of Something Awful's “Webcam Ward”, hosted by the team behind Retsupurae, is a commentary on ECV 00002.[12]

Also, the first episode of The Flash Tub's "Gaming Guyz", while not mentioning Chris outright, directly references his medallion, and how Sonic cured his autism in Part 12.[13]

SpliceToday.com

An article[14] posted on 6 January 2011 on this multimedia blog decried Chris's latest exile from the Internet. It sums up Chris's history and behavior while sharing a personal account of the author taking steps to improve his life in order to distance himself from the similarities he saw between Chris and himself.

It’s a little sad, and a little beautiful, and somewhere out there, Christian Weston Chandler is heating up his Hungry Man lunch in a supermarket microwave (because his kitchen microwave has been buried under old Christmas decorations) and playing his Nintendo DS, and maybe ogling a salesgirl from across the produce section before he approaches her awkwardly and uses a pickup line that he misread from the Internet, and I wish I could continue to see it all.

Nicole Richie's twitter

On 5 December 2009 American socialite Nicole Richie posted on Twitter[15] an image of Chris in his mother's underwear and humorously presented it as a picture of Benji Madden, brother of her then boyfriend (now husband) Joel Madden.

Sega Acknowledges Sonichu

On 13 January 2012, Sonichu was briefly mentioned during a "Free Stuff Friday" video on Sega of America's YouTube channel.

Male Employee: [while pulling out a Super Sonic plush] Um, this one's on its own?

Female Employee: Sonichu?
Male Employee: No.
Female Employee: [laughs]

While this is not TRUE and HONEST Sonichu merchandise, it does show at least some Sega employees are aware of Sonichu's existence. Jump to 3:50 in the linked video.


SEGA's Free Stuff Friday - January 13, 2012


Chris saw the video and commented, I do not find that commentary funny at all. In fact, I feel pissed off to be ridiculed soo lightly.[16]

Maddox

Internet comedy writer George "Maddox" Ouzounian, best-known for his website The Best Page in the Universe, critiqued Chris's first drawing of Sonic the Hedgehog on one of his side-projects, I Am Better Than Your Kids, as one of many children's drawings to help promote his novel of the same name. Like most other works on the site, Maddox gave the drawing an F.[17]

Cvillepedia

On a wiki dedicated to Charlottesville culture and "celebrities", he has what can only be described as a tongue-in-cheek article.[18]

Ensign Sue Must Die

#22 on Insane Subcultures.

Chris showed up on Cracked's front page as #22 on 9 April 2014 as part of "25 Insane Subcultures You Won't Believe Actually Exist".[19]

#2 on Fans Who Completely and Utterly Lost Their Minds.

Chris would later be indirectly referenced again on 6 August 2018 as #2 of "24 Times Fans Completely And Utterly Lost Their Minds" for his Sonic Boom Protests, which led to the event that happened on 26 December 2014.[20]

Smosh

Chris's Sonic Totem statue was featured one Smosh's site, via the 'Smosh Pit' section which mostly contains articles, countdowns, and memes. It was listed in the '22 People Who Tried Crafts On Pinterest and TOTALLY NAILED IT' article.

IMDb

Chris has his own IMDb entry page. To date he only has two credits, both in the "archive footage" category; the aforementioned =3 video, and the later WTFIWWY segment.[21]

Wii U Daily

The website Wii U Daily (now known as Nintendo Today) has an article on the GameStop incident that occurred on 26 December 2014.[22] Chris eventually found the article, then proceeded to go on a long rambling on Facebook on why the writer should respect him and his terrible ways--even going as far to call the writer a horrible male, despite the writer being female.

Reddit

Main article: Reddit

There is an entire subreddit on the popular website Reddit entitled "r/chrischansonichu", which is predictably all about Chris and his shenanigans. However, it's marked as NSFW, making it difficult to find.

On 23 September 2014, the subreddit r/shittykickstarters linked to Chris's Kickstarter project for getting Legos.

On 1 January 2015, the Wii U Daily article about the 26 December 2014 incident was linked to another subreddit, r/rage.[23]

On 1 September 2016, a post which promised a new Chris story every day of the following month was submitted to the r/CringeAnarchy subreddit.[24] The subreddit's background image was replaced accordingly with the classic picture of Chris staring creepily into the void.

Design & Trend

On 30 December 2014, defunct website Design & Trend also posted an article about the 26 December 2014 incident.[25] The article link was apparently tweeted 15 times, according to the website.

Sonic the Hedgehog Twitter

On June 10, 2015, a fan asked the official Twitter account of Sonic the Hedgehog (which has been verified and everything) if Sonichu will be playable in Sonic Boom: Fire & Ice.[26] Their response?

Maybe, but only if we give Sonichu blue arms, three scarves, and ultimately just redesign him as Big the Cat.

Two later posts also made minor mentions of Sonichu. The first was on March 9, 2016, in which Dr. Eggman attempts to cancel getting "Big the Cat facts" on his phone by texting his favorite Sonic character, but is told that his favorite Sonic character is Sonichu.[27] The second was April 29, 2016, where "Sonichu" is one possible name on a "What's Your Sonic Name" chart making fun of the "original characters" in the Sonic fandom.[28]

Crave Online Australia

The Jimquisition

In his review of Sonic the Hedgehog 2 3D for the 3DS, Jim Sterling gives a list of reasons why the original Sonic 2 was an all-time classic. In this list, Jim mentions that the game is "a great way to meet boyfriend-free girls," and also makes reference to the blue arms controversy.[30]

Adam Baldwin's twitter

On 5 December 2015, actor Adam Baldwin tweeted an image showing photos of various people who are either opposed or supporitve of GamerGate. At the top of the image on its far left side a picture of Chris can be seen.[31] The tweet was later on deleted.[32]

Milo Yiannopoulos

On 20 January 2017, former editor of Breitbart News Milo Yiannopoulos spoke at the University of Washington. The event, called Cyberbullying Isn't Real, contained a segment where Milo comments on how George H. W. Bush, a World War II torpedo bomber pilot and the head of the CIA, was considered a wimp when he ran for president.[35] Milo then poses the question:

What will happen when we have the first presidential campaign featuring a genderqueer furry who has videos of himself crying on YouTube because someone insulted his My Little Pony drawings? We know, don't we, what the first social justice president will look like.
Milo Yiannopoulos, exhibiting a photo of Chris

A picture of Chris is then featured on the screen to illustrate Milo's point. Although there were no specific allusions to Chris, Milo gives an eerily accurate description of Chris's internet infamy, seemingly derived solely on the photo itself. Jump to 1:13:02 in the link.

Kotaku

In the Kotaku article What People Miss When They Use 'Autistic' As An Insult, writer Cecilia D'Anastasio points to Chris and Sonichu, along with the actions of trolls on 4chan and Encyclopedia Dramatica, as part of the reason "autism came to be associated with impassioned gamers." The article seemed sympathetic to Chris, though Cecilia acknowledged in a comment that many of his views are offensive and that she does not endorse them, but also claimed that "[Chris's] personal beliefs are not entirely relevant to my article’s main themes".

3GI

Main article: Shrek Retold

On 15 November 2018, a Youtuber by the name of 3GI released a trailer for Shrek Retold, a feature-length collaboration of the first Shrek movie.

AlternateHistory.com

Chris has a small but crucial role in the alternate history trilogy made up of Player Two Start, Massively Multiplayer, and Battle Royale - specifically, in Massively Multiplayer. The timeline's point of divergence occurs when Sony and Nintendo agree to work together on new video game consoles (a deal which fell through in real life), which causes a cascade of changes throughout gaming and popular culture at large. In this timeline, thanks to a bizarre series of circumstances stemming from the butterfly effect, Christian Weston Chandler (who goes by Christopher instead of Christian in this timeline) becomes this universe's equivalent of the Columbine shooters.

The stark contrast between the relative harmlessness of our Chris (two incidents notwithstanding) compared to the Chris of this timeline deserves a bit of elaboration. In this timeline, Polly Klaas became a gamer and was not murdered, and her close encounter with a kidnapper (who tripped over an SNES-CD, which gave her father enough time to apprehend the man) made her something of a celebrity with a television presence; Nintendo gifted her with free games after the incident. She would eventually attend Columbine High School and meet Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, eventually helping Klebold realize that Harris was a toxic influence on him. Harris would still go on to attempt the massacre on April 20, 1999 (as it was in our timeline), but he only succeeds in killing one person before committing suicide. The Columbine Massacre, in this timeline, would not have anywhere near the social impact that it did in our timeline.

The incident that would take its place in shocking America would occur at Manchester High School, with this timeline's version of Chris as the gunman. Some events in Chris's life, such as his Love Quest and unhealthy obsession with finding a Gal pal or Sweetheart, still happened prior to the incident, and it's mentioned that he won the Watch & Win Sweepstakes before creating a comic where Sonichu met the characters of the fictitious video game Squad Four in an issue of Nintendo Power that he created. Dissatisfied over not receiving recognition for his academic accomplishments at his graduation, Chris snapped and would return to his school in time for Valentine's Day 2001 in an act of revenge. He murdered 18 students, 3 faculty members, and himself. Shonda Rhimes, who left a career in Hollywood to pursue teaching, was among the victims, seemingly taking the place of Mary Lee Walsh in this Chris's mind. Reggie Fils-Aimé, who worked at Sega in this timeline, was said to be absolutely horrified by the news, as was Nintendo's Howard Lincoln.

Following the incident, there was a greater social stigma placed against people with autism, with the media scapegoating violent video games (specifically, Unreal Tournament and the fictitious Arbiter of Sin 2 instead of the Doom series) as a point of inspiration for real-life violence, with Jack Thompson using the incident to bolster his crusade against video games by recruiting the families of the victims. In this timeline, the phrase "sperg out" carries a similar connotation with the phrase "going postal", and antivax activists have a field day with their conspiracy that vaccines cause autism, now emboldened enough to say that autistic people are violent. Conversely, football player Doug Flutie, having an autistic child, becomes an advocate for autistic people in the aftermath of the tragedy. Interestingly, though, this version of Chris was determined to not be autistic, in spite of reports to the contrary.

What caused this version of Chris to become a murderous spree-killer in this universe is never clearly stated, but it can be presumed that an obsession with more violent video games than the ones that our Chris typically exposed himself to factored into his eventual rampage. Suffice it to say, this version of Chris did not record a shout out video to this universe's versions of Klebold and Harris.

Death threats against Trump

On 9 November 2016, Chris made multiple death threats against President-elect Donald Trump.

Later that day, one of his Twitter posts was featured in an article by Alex Jones's Infowars website. The article was linked to on the Drudge Report. David Duke, former member of Louisiana's State Representatives and former Grand Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan, tweeted the article. Chris himself tweeted the article on 10 November.

Daniel "Keemstar" Keem, host of the drama YouTube account Drama Alert, tweeted at Chris and alerted the Secret Service.

Sky Williams, a YouTube gamer with nearly a million subscribers, retweeted Chris's post and added the comment, "k so this shit isn't okay - can we report this?". OneyNG, another YouTube gamer, also retweeted, saying "Chris Chan always knows what to say". Hundreds of retweets were made by their followers.

Conservative website HillaryDaily.com featured the tweet in an article on 10 November.

Video Games

McPixel

On 25 June 2012, the indie game McPixel featured a homage to Chris' sexcapades with inanimate objects by having a special ending sequence depicting the titular character dry-humping a PS3 in the same stance Chris was.

Goat Simulator

The goat unfortunately named Chris-Chan.

The "Goat MMO Simulator" DLC pack adds a simulated MMO mode that parodies games such as World of Warcraft. AI-controlled goats and a simulated chat simulate the presence of other players, and their names are drawn randomly from a list of pre-generated names. 'Chris-chan' is one of the names on this list.

OK K.O.! Lakewood Plaza Turbo

An iOS/Android beat-'em-up based on a Cartoon Network pilot, OK K.O.! introduces certain characters with a short biography screen (including a quote). The one for Carol (the player character's mother) has her saying "Go out and defend our Plaza – to the extreme!" (clearly echoing the cover to Sonichu #0).[36] This same phrase is also present in the pilot episode of the cartoon series, appearing at around five and a half minutes in.

Worth noting is that OK K.O.! is intended for general audiences.

HEARTBEAT

In the 2018 RPG HEARTBEAT, a minor NPC character named "Crispy Boy", whose appearance and mannerisms are obviously based on Chris, can be interacted with in one of the game's locations.

Pokemon Clover is fanmade Pokemon game that pays homage to the various Internet cultures, most notably 4Chan. There exists several references to Chris. The Fakemon Mudslacks draws inspirations from Chris's DIRTY, CRAPPED BRIEFS and Sonichu, with its shiny form even taking his color. Two trainers NPC also take inspirations from Chris with one of them being Chris himself, who can be fought in a cave near Lake Virgin.
