The #KikiChallenge, also known as #InMyFeelingsChallenge, #DoTheShiggy or #ShiggyChallenge, involves people stepping out of their cars and dancing to the tune of a Drake track, called In My Feelings from his latest album Scorpion.
The challenge, which has gone global, was made viral after internet comedian Shiggy posted a video of himself on Instagram busting some moves to Drake’s song. Interestingly, the original video did not involve a car.
The challenge gained momentum when Shiggy’s friend Odell Beckham Jr. filmed himself doing the dance outside of a vehicle. And thus, the #KiKiChallenge was born.
This resulted in many people getting hurt while performing the challenge and police of various cities issuing a warning against pulling off the stunt.
In the latest video, Rizwana Meer, a resident of Vadodara, can be seen in the video attempting to dance to the song as she shrugs off a car which keeps honking behind her.
