IF YOU haven’t been living under a rock for the past week then chances are you will have heard the baby shark song.

If not, we do apologise for getting the most annoying song of the year stuck in your head.


The song is popular all over the world[/caption]

What is the baby shark song?

The song simple started off as an innocent sing-along video on the Pingfong YouTube channel.

Pingfong have over 10 million subscribers and regularly post songs for children to sing along to, with colourful and interesting animations to help with education and speech development.

Although all of their videos perform well, none have gained vitality quite like the Baby Shark Dance video, which now has a whopping 1.6 BILLION views.

The video simply features a young boy and girl who sing along to a song about sharks, with simple hand movements and a lot of ‘doo doo doo doo doo doo’s

How did the challenge start?

The ‘in my feelings challenge’ or the ‘kiki challenge’ gained traction over the past few weeks thanks to Drake’s addictive song ‘In My Feelings’, where people get out of moving cars and dance whilst being filmed.

It’s a strange challenge, that’s for sure but everyone is doing it, and it’s hilariously latched on to the baby shark song now.

This comes after people started sharing parodies of the in my feelings challenge as a joke, however people are now taking it to the extreme by dressing up as sharks.

Who created the dance?

The simple dance was created for children by the choreographers behind Pinkfong

However they now have an entire collection of baby shark videos with different dances in different languages!
