Ground excavating is synonymous with JCB trucks, just like copying documents is also known as getting a 'Xerox'. But last night, JCB suddenly blew up on Twitter.
The #JCBKiKhudayi is trending on Twitter for the past few hours. No one knows exactly how or why this started but our best guess is a video on YouTube that has got four million views. Indians are watching a random excavation video and going crazy with their reactions.
Who started this trend is still unknown.
JCB khudayi jokes are so subtle yet so funny. Apparently the jokes are about how jobless are people to watch JCB digging videos on YouTube with these videos getting millions of views 😁 pic.twitter.com/AGaIWl04kg

For those that don't know, JCB stands for Joesph Cyrill Bamford and they are into construction, agriculture and demolition. They are a Britain-based company.
However, JCB is a national pastime in India. People crowd around these machines just watching it in action. Twitter users found the attraction amusing and used it to fuel their meme craze. There seemed to be a lull on Twitter after the elections season and the GOT craze, but the internet is back to doing its thing and #JCBKiKhudayi is the new inexplicable trends that has caught on.
Here are some of the tweets we could not help but LoL at:
