Kiki Challenge: From Will Smith to random people tumbling out of cars, the best of new social media trend
In just a few weeks, the Kiki challenge has taken over the world with everyone, from celebrities to sportsmen, giving it a shot.
The internet is an increasingly random space. One day, out of nowhere, something becomes a trend and the next thing you see is everyone trying their hands at the latest challenge. From The Condom Challenge to The Kylie Jenner Lip Challenge to The Harlem Shake, weird things have always found a way to become viral. The same can be said about The Kiki Challenge.
This challenge, which requires you to get out of a moving car and dance alongside to the song 'In My Feelings' by rapper Drake, has caused alarm bells to ring with police departments around the world. Obviously, celebrities and common people alike have used this opportunity to post videos of themselves accepting the challenge. There have also been various memes about it, and we will take a look at some of the highlights of the latest internet fad.
The first video was posted by Instagram user theshiggyshow.
Then Will Smith did it in Budapest.
Last day in Budapest. I woke up #InMyFeelings I’ma Keep It ... I was TERRIFIED up there. That’s why my dance moves is all STIFF! Haha #InMyFeelingsChallenge #DoTheShiggy . Be smart, don’t attempt doing this under any circumstances. . : @jas @aidan @aaronjonferguson

I promise this is the Lamest #kikichallenge ever!! After failing at being the silliest a couple times... kudos to the people who’ve gone all out with it, I couldn’t surpass my own embarrassment.. anyhow we can all laugh at it together!! #kikichallenge #ofcoursethisislame #forgivemefatherforihavesinned #shraddhaarya Please do not try this on a busy road or wherever there’s even a hint of danger ...In fact, do not try it at all.. we are in the film business so we know how to do such things safely(even then it could go wrong,I agree), I wouldn’t recommend this to anyone to try at all!!!

And this video of someone getting robbed while attempting the challenge...
Meanwhile, the Jaipur Police used the picture of a Kochi man with a garland around it to warn the youth against the dangers of participating in the Kiki Challenge, but there is one small problem: The man is still alive. The Mumbai and Uttar Pradesh police issued similar warnings asking people to not jump out of moving cars.
