Unless you’ve not paid your Internet bills for the last two years, chances are, you’ve heard of Baby Shark.
If you’re a parent, you probably have heard it approximately 8,000 times. After all, nothing shuts your kids up like Baby Shark.
Still don’t know what I’m blabbering about? Okay, here, shut your ears and enjoy Baby Shark, the most addictive song in the world that has made children all over the world silent and parents all over the universe relieved:
OMG sorry my bad: that’s a version by a photographer who’s Photoshopped himself into stock images, and disappeared from the surface of the Internet since then! So sorry, though Daddy Shark suddenly makes sense here by the way.
Here’s the correct version:

Pinkfong Baby Shark Live Musical
I honestly don’t know why there’s a need for a live musical (remember, they’re used to lull kids to sleep, not to be viewed in a theatre), but it seems like not everyone shares my views.
The creator of the song, Pinkfong, is apparently a Korean education startup. They produce videos, apps, books and toys, and Baby Shark brought them worldwide recognition when K-pop superstars started to do covers of their hit song Baby Shark.
Even more amazing is that the song didn’t do any intentional marketing: It just went viral in the later part of 2017, even when the original version was uploaded in 2015.
If you’re curious about how the original version looks like, here you go:

So, how does the musical looks like? Here’s a sneak peek:

Pinkfong Baby Shark Live Musical in Singapore
Here’s the meat of this article: yeah, they’re going to be in Singapore, and it’ll be from 2 November 2018 to 4 November 2018, with a total of eight shows (two on Friday and three on each weekend).
VIP tickets are at $128 while standard tickets range from $58 to $88.
Here’s the description of the musical (which seems to be similar to the Malaysia version:
In the far far Ocean Land, the Shark Family has been living peacefully along with their marine neighbors, until the playful little Baby Shark disappears!
Daddy Shark immediately calls Pinkfong for help in finding the missing Baby Shark. To bring Baby Shark back to its family safely, Pinkfong and his brave friends embark on an adventurous journey. On their way to the far far Ocean Land, Pinkfong and his friends encounter dangerous situations.
Don’t worry friends, with a magic necklace and his magic spell, Pinkfong has the power to solve any problem that gets in his way. Hoi Poi, Pinkfong!

OMG indeed: Baby Shark has disappeared!
That’s the dream of every non-parent who has to endure the songs being blasted everywhere, and the nightmare of every parent who needs Baby Shark to keep his or her children quiet!
But seriously, it really seems dope. Imagine hours of Baby Shark in real life: that’s even better than seeing Steven Lim IRL, no?
The musical will be held in MES Theatre at Mediacorp: to buy the tickets, tap here.
I know I won’t (which pretty much shows that I’ve no kids yet).
