The onomatopoeic phrase "om telolet om" also caught on, with many people sharing it on its own.

It basically became a huge meme.

Indonesians began sending the phrase to musicians and visitors to their country.

ok but for real tho why am I getting notifications that people commenting "om telolet om" on all my social media platforms

Slowly they caught on, and started sharing it back.

Even the chainsmokers, yellowclaw, zedd, dj snake 'til martin garrix and etc talking #OmTeloletOm on twitter 😂

OM TELOLET OM doesn't seem to work on the 243 to Wood Green 🙁

And now it's just everywhere.


It seems especially popular with musicians.
