"He locked the door! Unlock the door, he's taking hostage of me!" she screamed, despite the driver and a police officer explaining to her that the door locks automatically.

 "Is it because I'm Chinese?" she added.

Amused by the fact that the woman could not comprehend that modern cars have an auto-lock feature, netizens have been on a meme-making frenzy ever since

Not to miss out on a priceless marketing opportunity, brands have also jumped on the bandwagon with cheeky ads about their lock features

The Singaporean Air Force also made a reference to the viral video in a Facebook post about Chinese New Year.
