The KikiChallenge gets banned by the Indian Punjab Government because of its ‘imprudent and dangerous dance steps’.
Have you tried the “Kiki challenge” yet?
Well getting in the feels has been banned!
The challenge involved getting out of the moving car and dancing alongside on the road whiles the other person who’s driving records the video. The Canadian rapper/singer Drake that’s famous for his amazing tracks like “hotline bling” and “god’s plan” has now recently released “In my feels”
At first, it started off as a bit of fun and games in the name of Instagram likes, but it’s now become a global safety issue, with police around the world warning people against stepping up to the challenge.
Where did the #KiKiChallenge come from?
The dance itself went viral after internet comedian Shiggy posted a video of himself on Instagram busting some moves to Drake’s song.
Interestingly, the original video did not involve a car.
The challenge got onto the next level when Shiggy’s friend Odell Beckham Jr. filmed himself doing the dance outside of a vehicle.
And thus, the #KiKiChallenge was born.
What has Drake said about the #KiKiChallenge?
Drake has let the money do the talking, and can largely thank Shiggy for making In My Feelings skyrocket to the top of the charts. This is despite the song not originally planned to be released as a single.
On the day the song went to number 1 in the US, Drake posted a photo of him with Shiggy to his Instagram.
Shiggy has since slyly hinted that Drake should cut him a share of the profits.
What celebrities have done the #KiKiChallenge?
Everyone from Will Smith to Ciara has had a go.
Will Smith went the extra mile and did the challenge on top of a bridge in Budapest. In the video, which he posted to Instagram, he says whilst scaling the bridge: “this is definitely illegal.”
Even Drake couldn’t resist giving fans a show during his set at Wireless festival.
Why are police saying it’s too dangerous?
Pakistani celebrities Azfar Rehman and Matheera also tried this Kiki challenge
Social activist and Comedian Faiza Saleem also tried this challenge
As one would expect, there are going to be multiple risks involved with (getting in your feels:p) jumping out of a moving car and dancing alongside it in the middle of the road.
Police in Florida have said that anyone caught jumping out of a moving car and dancing alongside it could be slapped with a $1000 fine plus criminal charges.
Mumbai police posted a warning tweet reading: “Not just a risk for you but your act can put life of others at risk too. Desist from public nuisance or face the music!”
last but not the least Pakistan’s police should also banned this challenge
The moral of this internet story? Don’t hustle too much for KiKi and drive safe, kids.
