'Palat, Simran!' Oh My God She Has AirPods in, She Can't Hear This Meme

The newest meme on AirPods mocks the people in a potentially dangerous situation albeit fictional, and they can't hear your warnings simply because they have the "over-priced" pieces of tech fixed in their ears.

If you haven't heard about the latest trend on social media, you probably have your AirPods in.

Ever since Apple AirPods hit the market in 2016, the wireless earbuds have been a subject of mockery on social media. Yes, the tech giant has sold millions of them, even running short in Europe and Asia due to its high user demand, but the earphones from Apple have also been constant fodder for memes.

The newest meme on AirPods mocks the people in a potentially dangerous situation albeit fictional, and they can't hear your warnings simply because they have the "over-priced" pieces of tech fixed in their ears.

The "oh my god they have AirPods in, they can’t hear us," meme is a spin-off of a 2016 YouTube video which shows Squidward Tentacles from the animated series SpongeBob SquarePants in the middle of a road, with his headphones on, paying no heed to the narrator warning him about an incoming truck.

The video was titled - The Trucks Coming. Oh my god he has headphones on. He can't hear us. Oh my god.

Taking a cue from the video while mocking the "bourgeois" - a new meme was born.

A viral trend that doesn't have a desi twist? Impossible.

The AirPods meme has been around for a bit, especially peaking during the 2018 Christmas when people equated having AirPods with being filthy rich and flauting it.
