1 Guy 1 Jar Death Rumor refers to the purported death of viral video star Aleksey Tatarov from the shock video 1 Guy 1 Jar infamy. The death, supposedly occurring while Aleksey was drafted into the Ukrainian army as part of the ongoing war with Russia, was spread via a Telegram group that claimed he died after being struck by shrapnel during the conflict. Skeptics of his death point to his age of 55 years old, as well as the exact wording of his injuries being a "shard wound" as potential reasons why the death is just a rumor and possibly a hoax.


On June 25th, 2024, the Telegram channel DVAchannel[1] received a post that said, in Russian, that "Ukrainian citizen Aleksey Tatarov, known for a video in which he sits on a jar before it explodes inside of his anus, died in the combat zone.
Ukrainian social media are saying that he was involuntarily drafted, and died from a fragment wound. Zelensky did not provide official comment regarding his death."

In a prior 2007 interview, Tatarov claimed to be living in Ukraine, which gave enough credence for people to take the post as truth and begin spreading it around (shown below). The Telegram post garnered over 572,000 views in two days.


Later that day, on June 25th, 2024, X user @Wagnersfamily,[2] a possible reference to the Wagner Group, made a post in which they claimed that Alexey Aleksandrovich Tatarov was the hero of the Ukrainian Armed Forces before posting the images from the Telegram post (shown below). The tweet received nearly 2,500 views and 50 likes in two days.

Two days later, on June 27th, the meme website FunnyJunk had a post made by user quetzalcoyotl,[3] which showed the original Telegram post with a slightly different translation. This version, which received over 550 green thumbs-ups in four hours, led to comments from people speculating as to his death, involving ways that included him recreating the video in some form (shown below).
