Bizarre song on papadum goes viral

A bizarre song called Papadum went viral on Twitter recently. The video left netizens horrified, who bashed it massively.

Internet never fails us when it comes to bizarre things. While some videos leave us shocked beyond belief, others leave us in splits. And once in a while, they manage to do both. One such cringeworthy video has gone viral on Twitter.


The song is on one of the most delectable Indian snacks – papadum. It features a group of foreigners singing the song, along with a desi woman painfully smiling in it. If this sounds too painful, wait till you watch it.


The video, which has more than 1.6 million views, was shared on Twitter by Pran Patel with the caption, “What fresh hell is this (sic)?” And Twitter seemed to agree with him, as they too were horrified by the funny/offensive song. In the music video, the foreigners sing “Papadum, papadum, papadum,” repeatedly throughout the entire length of the song while holding…you guessed it right…a papadum. And the horror is real!

Well, the story does not end here. Apart from representing the favourite Indian snack, a man in the video can be seen swinging the bat while creepily saying papadum.


This cultural representation obviously did not go well with Desi Twitter, who took to social media to troll the song massively. While some netizens cracked hilarious jokes, others said that they want to rescue the brown woman in it. Few others were horrified by the cultural appropriation.ADVERTISEMENT
