The original image was taken from an interview, where El Risitas burst into laughter while telling a story to the host of the Spanish television show.
Given his high-pitched laugh while telling the story, the video has spawned a series of videos on YouTube which has led to viewers of Twitch.tv to create an emote from a screenshot of his face.
The emote was uploaded to the FrankerFaceZ collection on Twitch.tv in early 2019, which is a browser extension that enhances your viewing experience by adding new unique emotes, chat features, etc. to your liking.
