This word started in Kansai stand-up comedians, and became popular in the M-1 Grand Prix 2006, a manzai tournament. It was adopted quickly on the Internet, to the point where they had a whole TV program named with the word.
The Germans have a distinct word for it. It is "Backpfeifengesicht", which is a compound word that means "a face badly in need of a fist". Or a crowbar.
