It’s the latest craze to take the social media world by storm.
The Kiki Challenge involves people jumping out of a moving car and dancing alongside it to Drake’s hit In My Feelings, as the vehicle keeps moving.
The lyrics include the line ‘Kiki, do you love me.’
But police have had to issue warnings after videos online showed dancers crashing into people and lamp-posts, as well as tripping over and falling out of cars before they even started doing the dance.
One woman put her handbag down as she got out of a car, only to see it grabbed by two men on a motorbike who rode past.
Another man was hit by a car as he attempted the routine. And one man was thrown off a bridge after colliding with a passer-by.
The trend – also called the #InMyFeelings challenge – started when internet comedian Shiggy put a video on Instagram showing himself dancing to the song in the road as cars went past.
Celebrities including Will Smith and Ciara have joined in and posted their own videos of the dance – though they didn’t leap out moving vehicles. Will Smith climbed to the top of a bridge to perform his version.
Not just a risk for you but your act can put life of others at risk too. Desist from public nuisance or face the music !
And in one case, a dog was persuaded to dance on two legs alongside a moving car.
But police around the world, including India, Spain, the US, Malaysia and the United Arab Emirates, have warned people that the dance challenge is dangerous and people caught trying it could face criminal charges, reports.
US government agency National Transportation Safety Board issued a warning after a Kiki Challenge dancer was hit by a car.
A spokesman said: “Hopping out of a moving vehicle or jumping into lanes of traffic to show your dance moves is foolish and dangerous — to you and those around you.
“There’s a time and place for everything, but our nation’s highways and roadways are no place for the #InMyFeelings challenge.”
Mumbai Police tweeted: “Not just a risk for you, but your act can put the lives of others at risk too. Desist from public nuisance or face the music!
