About

STFU I'm Listening to refers to video remixes of a man in a car trying to ignore a woman yelling at him outside the window captioned, "STFU I'm Listening to X." In mid-October 2019, the video gained popularity in edits on iFunny and Instagram.

Origin

On March 7th, 2019, Twitter user @MikeRuga shared the original video with the caption "Get a girlfriend they said… it will be fun they said." The tweet received more than 5 million views, 35,000 likes and 11,000 retweets in less than one year (shown below).

The exact origin of the meme is currently unknown. One of the earliest known edits of the video, based on JoJo's Bizarre Adventure OP song "Crazy Noisy Bizarre Town," was posted by Instagram user doppioooo on October 10th, 2019,[1] gaining over 5,100 views and 1,100 likes in five days (original post no longer available, reupload shown below). iFunny repost of the video received over 2,500 smiles in the same period.[2]



Spread

In the following days, multiple humorous edits accompanied by various music edits were posted by users on Instagram, iFunny and YouTube. For example, an October 11th "Plastic Love" edit by iFunny user KingCloverfield received over 2,400 smiles in two weeks (shown below, left).[3] An October 14th "Out of Touch" edit by user Argyll accumulated over 3,600 smiles in the same period (shown below, right).[4]
