That's right, over the holidays, a video of a DeLonghi coffee machine was tweeted out by user @saaasdfghjkl. In their post, they noticed that the machine made a noise similar to the synth opening of the 2000 hit — and the observation completely blew Twitter away.

And in case you don't believe them — or the 42,000-plus people who also agree — go ahead and listen for the noise-in-question around the 12 second mark.
Eerie, right? That said, apparently this is something people have been noticing for a while, if tweets dating back to 2010 are any indication.
Our coffee machine makes the same noise as the start of "Stronger" by Britney Spears when it's being cleaned.. "Errrrrrrrrrrrrrr!"— Chris Mullen (@Darkershadeofme) June 25, 2010

Coffee machines making the opening synth noise of Stronger - Britney Spears is my one and only kink— baby with a gun (@badgalsez) October 15, 2018
And while it's all probably just a cute coincidence, we're going to go ahead and just give this one to Britney. After all, her influence knows no bounds, and it seems like the coffee industry agrees. Talk about impact!
