Where did the term chillax come from originally?

The term "Chillax" can be traced back as far back as 2001. A writer/comedian by the name of Las Visciedo claims to have coined this phrase after a spat with his then girl friend and then used later on stage during a performance. According to the story she hated it when he told her to "relax", in turn he corrected this behavior by then telling her to "chill". The new result seem to upset her even more which resulted in Laz finally telling her to "Chillax" Their relationship ended soon after. Laz is now on a world wide campaign to officially be recognized for coming up with the term.
Any video evidence or anything? If not someone could simply claim to have used it in 2000, or 1999, or 1998. You see what I'm saying. Mglovesfun (talk) 17:26, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

Great point Mglovesfun. We are searching for video confirmation and have witnesses so just Chillax ;)

St Elmo's Fire[edit]

Does Demi Moore say "Chillax" to Andrew MacCarthy in the 1985 movie, St Elmo's Fire?!?

No; I just checked the script. Equinox 20:04, 8 August 2016 (UTC)

Earlier uses[edit]

Also, did you notice that the Merriam-Webster online dictionary dates the term 1999.

My friend Patrick Roche used the term in 2000 while at Akamai technologies but did not coin it.

my friend has been using it since the late 80s early 90s but he says you all may use it :) Nomad. P. S. Your ONLINE dictionary is wrong😆
