The Om Telolet Om craze is taking over the world…one DJ at a time.
If you’re feeling lost and asking just what the heck is om telolet om is -- don’t worry because we’re all on the same boat…or should I say bus?
The mysterious phrase ‘Om Telolet Om’ – which, according to the Jakarta Post, began in November -- was shared all over Twitter on Tuesday and it’s safe to say that saying confused the hell out of everyone. Some of the biggest DJs like Zedd, DJ Snake, and Marshmello simply tweeted the phrase while others like Martin Garrix and the Chainsmokers asked what it meant.
Thankfully, we all didn’t have to wonder much longer because an Instagram user explained the origin and meaning of ‘Om Telolet Om.’ Are you ready to have your mind blown? ‘Om telolet om’ simply translates to ‘sir honk the horn sir.’
The social media user explained QUOTE, “It’s from Indonesia, the country in South East Asia. ‘Telolet’ is respresenting a sound of the public buses’ horn. Originally from Java, I guess. Somehow the kids are Java are fascinated by it and having fun while listening to it. Though some people found that it’s silly and disturbing (for having it’s loud sound and fast pace). And ‘om’ is a term for calling older/adult male, just like uncle/sir in English. So the kids would say ‘om telolet om’ and the driver (usually an adult male) would honk the bus and the sound would be like ’telolet telolet.’ So if put simply in English, it’s like ‘sir honk the bus sir.’ Om telolet om.”
That’s a pretty wild bus horn, right? Well, the kids of Indonesia were SO obsessed with it that they started spamming the social media accounts of internationally known DJs, these DJs started to take note, and that’s how we got to where we are today.
It’s a fairly new thing to this side of the world since we JUST heard about it, but Dillon Francis has already hopped on the trend and added the sample to his song ‘Bun Up the Dance’ with Skrillex.
