The Brief: Memes about Apple's wireless headphones: AirPods have been popping up. One meme format, in particular, has stuck.
In these AirPod memes, a picture usually illustrates a scenario where someone is wearing AirPods, making it so that they cannot hear what is going on around them. The caption usually conveys someone trying to warn them of impending danger before realizing that “they have AirPods in” so they “can’t hear us.” Although this meme has dark tones, the humor comes from the absurdity of people wearing AirPods in a variety of scenarios, including made-up ones, movie scenes, and historical moments.
Other AirPod memes poke fun of the fact that they’ve become a status symbol for many wearers and that they don’t have any wires. Many of these memes make fun of AirPod users for being rich and/or stuck up.
