One fan of The Chainsmokers finally shed some light on the the meaning of "OM TELOLET OM" which originated in Indonesia:
According to the Jakarta Post, the viral craze started back in November. A Facebook video surfaced, showing Indonesian children shouting and waving signs with the phrase "sir, honk your horn, sir" to passing city buses. Their priceless glee was evident whenever they successfully urged the drivers to sound their horns.
