This week BuzzFeed's Internet Explorer podcast does a deep dive into what the internet is like in India. We interviewed All India Bakchod, one of India's coolest and most controversial YouTube groups.

To celebrate our India-themed episode, we asked Indian Twitter users to tell us some of the weirdest things they've seen Americans do on the internet. Here are some of the funniest responses:

1. "Blaming Obama for every damn thing. That happens a lot."

— _sjacob

2. "Live tweet TV shows and well spoilers all around. I have to stay off Twitter when I wanna watch Pretty Little liars."

— brainsofahippo

3. "A lot of American kids take videos of them doing a certain drug and then post it on Youtube, which I thought was bizarre."

— shayan_sr

4. "Bizarre selfies."

— panchu007

5. "Upload videos of them twerking, I think there are so many beautiful dance forms that they could choose from, why would you choose to twerk?"

— karimasanela

6. "Take the internet way too seriously :)"

— ssdatar

7. "Every time I tweet something I'm really scared of looking stupid or having typos, but Americans don't have that problem."


8. "Every weekend they have a new Facebook album with photos of what they did. Every. Damn. Weekend."

9. "Write food blogs where every other ingredient is kale."

10. "Say things like 'I can't even.' That doesn't make sense. But I'm supposed to know what you 'cant even.'"

11. "Shake Shack Vs In-N-Out rivalry. Again, don't get it."


Just tried Shake Shack. In-n-Out can go fuck itself.


Every time someone posts a picture of In-N-Out Burger I weep a bit inside. Fuck this Shake Shack nonsense.

"The best is In-N-Out!" "No way, Shake Shack all the way!" "My favorite is Five Guys!" *silence* "Get the fuck out of here, Terry."

12. "Obsess over grilled cheese sandwiches. Which are ACTUALLY FRIED. In a frying pan. With butter."

— KhizM

13. "Illuminati confirmed."

— prat157

14. "They either write for Thought Catalog or they hate on Thought Catalog."


I love @ThoughtCatalog omg the articles are so beautiful (":

15. "It's their ability to make anything go viral, you know like random people."

16. "Minions..."
