Pols Aa Gyi Pols is a viral video and catchphrase popular in India and Indian memes. The phrase originates from a video featuring several men speaking in Punjabi before they are interrupted by flashing blue and red lights from afar, leading someone to exclaim "oye pols aa gyi pols!" meaning "oy, the police is coming!" The lights are then shown to have been a false alarm, coming from the headlights of an older bearded man on a bike. The video was first posted to Instagram on an unknown date before it was reposted to YouTube in February 2023 and subsequently went viral as a catchphrase on Instagram in March 2023.
On an unknown date in early 2023, a video featuring several men conversing in a dimly lit environment before running away from what appears to be flashing police lights was posted to Instagram.

The video contained a text overlay commonly used in Instagram Story and Reels uploads and gathered over 260 views and 200 likes in roughly a month (seen below).
