The word 'bazinga' was made popular by the character of Sheldon in The Big Bang Theory, but it is now frequently outside the show as well. For example, John Oliver recently used it in his phenomenally popular "Make Donald Drumpf Again" skit. It demonstrates the phenomenon of an essentially made-up word coming entering into popular usage, outside of its original context. Also, interesting to note is that in the clip, they start using it as a noun, once its meaning has been solidly established as an exclamation.
