Everything About The Kiki Challenge, The IG Trend That Doesn’t Make Sense

The internet has gone through a lot of eras in the short time it has lived.

The chat room era.

The MSN messenger era.

And now, it’s in the challenge era.

You’ve got to admit that while there are good challenges out there, challenges are getting, frankly, more and more ridiculous as time goes by.

Sometimes, even bordering on idiocy.

Like this Kiki Challenge.

In case you don’t know what this Kiki challenge is all about, we’ll bring you all the way back to where it first started.

Canadian Superstar Drake Newest Single: In My Feelings

In case you only listen to Nathan Hartono, Drake is an acclaimed musician with plenty of songs under his belt.

And it just turns out that his latest single, In My Feelings, was the song to spark off the entire Kiki challenge.

Yes, it’s a pretty good song. Just listen to it for yourself.

(Article continues below) Xing Xing is a 34-year-old Singaporean lady who decides to meet up with an online friend she found in Facebook. But it turns out that he’s not what he seems to be: Prepare boxes of tissue and watch the saddest Singapore Facebook love story here:

Okay, you ask, how does a song spawn an entire challenge? It’s not Zakum, right?

Sorry, my Maple-siao colleague forced me to put that in. Because he wants people to read his review on MapleStoryM.

Anyway, things would’ve been fine if Instagram comedian Shiggy didn’t perform to the song.

But he did it and uploaded a video of him dancing to Drake’s In My Feelings at on the road.

And things just went crazy from there.

The Challenge Went Viral & Everyone Over The World is Doing It

So, catchy song plus good-looking dude dancing? Hell, you just have to top that.

And everyone worldwide started doing the challenge.

Including celebrities like Will Smith

Seems harmless, right? Except.

Somehow along the way, the challenge grew from dancing on the road at night to dancing outside a moving car at any time of the day.

If you’re not alarmed at the words moving car, here, we have an example for you.

Even S’pore Is Getting Into The #InMyFeeling Challenge

Facebook user Thomas Blysk Kopankiewicz decided to do a uniquely Singaporean version of the Kiki Challenge.

By doing it beside a moving MRT.

As well as Caltex Singapore.

Police All Around The World Are Concerned With This Challenge

And for good reason.

I mean, no matter whether you’re 16, 26 or 46 like my handsome boss, dancing on the roads is a pretty dangerous thing…right?

However, not everyone got the same memo.

Ever since this entire challenge started, people have been injured, hospitalised and sometimes, arrested.

Like 18-year-old Anna Worden.

Anna decided to do the challenge when she was in a car with friends on 23 Jul 2018. When she stepped out of the car, she tripped and hit her head, blacking out immediately.

Doctors discovered that she had fractured her skull and suffered from blood clots in her ear and bleeding in her brain.

For doing what she thought is a harmless challenge, Anna is now recovering and learning how to walk again.

Shiggy Says, It’s Not My Fault

So, did Shiggy, the guy who started it all meant for all these to happen?

As it turns out: no.

When he put out the challenge and uploaded a video of him grooving to Drake’s song, the video didn’t involve a moving car.

In fact, he said he doesn’t support the idea of people jumping out of their moving cars to perform the challenge.

So there you go.

If you have to do the Kiki challenge, do it the safe way. And for goodness sake, don’t try this on the PIE, okay?
