That said, the jokes about them can’t have hurt Apple – if anything, the people mocking the product have led to a sales bump. “People who consume memes – millennials and so on – are really hard to reach through traditional advertising,” one digital marketing executive said.

I never thought the Airpods were lame or never mocked them. I was actually excited for them and a year after 2018. I bought them and they are probably my favorite Apple product in a while.
