#KiKiChallenge Has Officially Arrived On Our Shores
The Mannequin Challenge? Please, that’s so 2016.
New year, new viral sensation. And that’s the #KiKiChallenge, also known as, the In My Feelings Challenge. And boy, does it need more effort than just standing still.
Taking the Internet by storm, the craze sees individuals dancing alongside a moving car to Drake’s hit single In My Feelings.
And it’s officially in Singapore.
Singaporean guy had a go at #KiKiChallenge
On Thursday (2 Aug), netizen Thomas Blysk Kopankiewicz shared his version of the #KiKiChallenge on Facebook; but with a twist.
Instead of dancing alongside a moving car, the video shows him dancing along a moving MRT train at Clarke Quay station.
Origins of the craze
The viral dance was spawned when widely-followed comedian Shiggy uploaded a video on Instagram of him dancing along to In My Feelings.
That post sparked the #KiKiChallenge, which saw thousands of social media users uploading videos of them dancing along to In My Feelings.
Even Hollywood celebrities Ciara and Will Smith had a go at it.
The hashtag has already amassed over 400,000 posts on Instagram.
A global safety issue
But it’s not all fun and games. It can look pretty slick when done safely and correctly. But when things go wrong, the #KiKiChallenge can be dangerous to public safety.

Even the Mumbai Police had to step in, encouraging users to use the hashtag #InMySafetyFeelingsChallenge instead.
And in case Thomas gave you any ideas: please don’t do the dance on a crowded train platform. The rest of Singapore thanks you.
