#Trending: Dhinchak Pooja’s Answer To The Viral Binod Trend, ‘Gaadi Meri 2 Seater’, Is As Pointless And Horrible As 2020
The one person who deserves to be asked “Pooja, what is this behaviour?” is Dhinchak Pooja, cringe pop queen and YouTube star, who’s inexplicable popularity is one of the greatest mysteries of our time. Unfortunately, while the OG Pooja from Bigg Boss could answer that she kicked it by mistake, Dhinchak Pooja (also a Bigg Boss contestant) is fully aware of what she is doing. I mean, she’s even written a book titled How To Go Viral On Youtube and continues to produce cringe pop videos with the same confidence. In fact, she’s the latest to jump on the viral ‘Binod’ trend which, much like ‘JCB Ki khudaai’, gained popularity for an absurd reason. Then again, this is 2020, a year that has been unanimously accepted as pointless and horrible. And at least in that aspect, Dhinchak Pooja’s latest video, ‘Gaadi Meri 2 Seater’ is perfectly in sync with how we’re feeling.
Who is Binod and why’s the dude trending?
Binod, the man of the moment, found his fame on the same platform as Dhinchak Pooja, which might explain why she felt enough kinship with him to dedicate her song to him.
It all began in July, when a YouTube channel called Slayy Point shared a video titled “Why Indian Comments Section is Garbage”. As the name suggests, in the video, creators Abhyudaya and Gautami Kawale hilariously mocked some of the weirdest, whackiest comments that we normally find on desi YouTube videos. Now one of the comments that they and their subscribers were particularly amused by was a comment from a user named Binod Tharu. What did he write? Nothing much. Dude had a knack for simply dropping by in video comments to write his first name ‘Binod’ in the comments section! There are no videos on his profile, and his existence is just to ‘Binod’ wherever he can.
Binod turned into this crazy trend on Twitter and YouTube, being the perfect new meme format for the existential crisis we are in.

Even brands jumped in on the
bandBinodwagon, with PayTm even changing their Twitter username to Binod for a while because a follower tweeted them to. It was all pretty weird. Nobody could explain why it was such a big deal! All we knew, was that Binod Thakur (his name) was famous and we couldn’t do anything about it.

See? I told ya. Pointless. Inexplicable. Empty. Just like 2020 and Dhinchak Pooja’s song lyrics.

Dhinchak Pooja’s ‘Gaadi Meri 2 Seater Ft. Binod’ is so random!
I know you’ll say, “What ya, Jinal? You’re trying to look for sense here of all places?” Mea culpa. Guilty. But I couldn’t help. For starters, there’s no connection between Pooja’s 2-seater car and the jazzed up SUV we actually see in the video. The comments section is turned off. Which makes me wonder what was the point of writing ‘Ft. Binod’ in the title? How will people comment ‘Binod’ on your video then? How will Binod comment on your video then? To deprive him of his only reason for existence (on YouTube) is crueler than the cringe pop songs she subjects her audience to.
Nevertheless, moving on. In the song, Dhinchak Pooja is basically flexing about her 2-seater car which turns her into this fearless driver for GTA Vice City, I guess. She gives us some car specs right off the bat— the speedometer is broken, it is a comfy car because it has a heater. If you’re not convinced by this sales pitch, there’s some pretty credible celebrity endorsement also. Tom Holland’s Peter Parker drives this car, so I am guessing Stark Industries approves?
Anyway, she then goes on to talk about how driving this car makes her indulge in road rash, which she then glorifies. She ignores signals, has cop cars chasing her but only for auto-graphs (you’ll see why I used a hyphen there, literally) and she hits the accelerator instead of the brake which makes her newsworthy.
Wait, why am I even explaining it? See for yourself!
But wait a minute! Do Dhinchak Pooja’s lyrics remind you of someone?
Honestly, it reminds me of a certain Bollywood bro, who could pretty well be the subject of this song. I mean, look at the lyrics and tell me you didn’t think of him! Cops chasing the car for an autograph, people starring at the car, everybody who sits in the car becoming famous. Just saying!
Either way, looks like cringe pop fans have a new anthem to listen to on loop. Stay Dhinchak!
