Kiki challenge: Cops use social media to warn against viral dare

The police are anxious about an internet challenge thrown by Canadian rapper Drake, which involves jumping out of a moving auto and dancing alongside it to his song "In My Feelings".

The originator of the In My Feeling dance challenge, Shiggy has revealed that the challenge was not about getting out of a moving vehicle.

Egypt's Interior Ministry says that while it is fine to do the dance for fun, obstructing traffic could draw fines of up to 3,000 pounds ($167) and a year in prison, the Ahram Online news website reported.


A senior police officer said there are sections under the Delhi Police Act under which the people indulging in the act can be booked for creating nuisance on the roads or playing loud music.

"We will take action under the Motor Vehicles Act as it falls under risky driving (category)", said Anand. "#DanceYourWayToSafety #InMySafetyFeelingsChallenge", the Mumbai Police said in its post on 26 July.

Even the Bengaluru Police had cautioned people against taking part in the challenge.


The Chandigarh Police has warned the youth from taking the Kiki dance challenge, highlighting the dangers of the hugely popular jig. So please stand by your kids in all the challenges in life except #kikichallenge.

Some videos of the challenge, uploaded on the internet, show oblivious dancers crashing into poles, tripping on potholes and even falling out of cars. Supra's video is joining the ranks of dancing celebrities such as Will Smith, Ciara and the Houston Astros. However, he also reminded his followers that the challenge is not about getting out of a moving vehicle.
