Viral Tampa-born Bullwinkle, whose real name was Bernard Thomas, has appeared in a handful of hit videos, but “Hell To Da Naw Naw” was by far his most popular. It’s garnered 37 million views on his own YouTube channel alone.

 

Family members have confirmed that the man behind “Hell 2 Da Naw Naw” —  Pastor Bullwinkle has died at age 70, on Father’s Day.

Those who ever got a chance to see the Southern soul icon in person will remember him for his transgressive take-down of preachers and never one to mince his words.
