New Delhi: Netizens around the globe have been so mesmerised by Drake’s latest hit, ‘In My Feelings’, and the following Kiki challenge, that it has become a matter of concern for the police departments everywhere to ensure their safety.
The catchy tune of the song has not only got people humming it continuously, but Shiggy’s dance challenge to the song has gotten everyone involved in dancing on the streets while being recorded from a moving car.
But as the challenge went viral, and many succeeded in performing the dance flawlessly, it turned out to be quite deadly for many others. Several videos surfaced where performers was seen jumping out of moving vehicles and injuring themselves badly.
The popularity of the challenge has been rising in India recently and got the law enforcement agencies concerned about road safety. Warning netizens about the fatal trend, Jaipur Police on Monday came up with a very thoughtful social media post.
The official Facebook page of Jaipur Police shared a photo of a man adorned with a garland which suggested that he is dead. The caption read, “Don’t challenge death. Be wise – keep away from silly stunts & advise your friends as well to stay safe.” While the photo came with a brief, “In loving memory of KK — Loving boyfriend of Kiki, died while doing the Shiggy.”
Don't challenge death. Be wise – keep away from silly stunts & advise your friends as well to stay safe.#InOurFeelings #KikiKills #SafetyFirst #SafeJaipur #JaipurPolice
The post was representative and created to get attention and warn people. Luckily, no one has lost his/her life in Jaipur yet, but the police department took an early step at maintaining decorum with this post.
Previously, Delhi Police, UP Police and Mumbai Police also shared messages urging people to keep away from the viral challenge:
