As a fad on YTMND
While very few new actual major fads started on YTMND (aside of elephant feces, raw eggs and GrassyMoss Saved By The Bell news article spam) since 2016, Adam West's death has prompted the creation of many YTMND sites about his death. This fad started on June 10, 2017.
- Batman is Dead by Brandon00151 (also another Lando site)
- R.I.P. Adam West by JohnnyLurg
- R.I.P. Adam West by chibigatomon
- Rip Mayor West by hdofu
- RIP Principal Schwinger by SusanTrepid (aka Suzanne)
- R.I.P. Captain Blasto by JohnnyLurg
Reasons why this fad started
While Adam West was known to play Batman in the 1960s TV series, there were other famous YTMND fads such as Ualuealuealeuale and bebubebududeh that also included Batman. Alongside, the infamy of some famous users from prior to the Suzanne Era such as Umfuld have also included Batman in YTMND sites, in which his infamy may have also influenced users into having enough interest in Adam West to spark this fad.
