What is The Kiki Challenge? Why Police Are Warning Against The Dangerous Dance Craze
By Christina Zhao
U.S. Drake Police
Authorities around the world are warning people not to attempt the "Kiki challenge"—also known as the "In My Feelings challenge"—after several people were injured doing the dance.
The viral sensation, which rose to prominence late last month, involves a person jumping out of a moving car and dancing to Drake's song "In My Feelings" beside their slow-moving vehicle as it cruises down the street.
The internet comedian Shiggy started the craze after he posted a video of himself enthusiastically doing the dance on a road to Instagram on June 30. Since then, thousands of people around the world have imitated his dance and posted their results to social media, including celebrities such as Will Smith and Ciara.

The dare is tricky because it requires the person to both dance in tune with the song while also keeping up with the speed of the car. The challenge is completed once the person manages to jump back into the car, without any injuries after finishing the dance successfully.In one video, two men on motorbikes can be seen stealing a woman's handbag as she attempts the Kiki challenge.

In some videos uploaded to social media, people can be seen crashing into poles, tumbling out of their vehicles, being hit by cars, and tripping on potholes while attempting the dare. In one video posted to Twitter, two men in motorbikes can be seen stealing a woman's handbag as she attempts the challenge. In another, a man is hit by a car while dancing on the road alongside his vehicle.

Police in America, Malaysia, Spain, India and the United Arab Emirates have spoken out about the dangers of the craze, while some authorities have even threatened criminal charges for those who attempt it.
Last Wednesday, the Mumbai Police took to Twitter to warn its citizens against trying the challenge. "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 ! #DanceYourWayToSafety #InMySafetyFeelingsChallenge," they wrote, alongside a video of someone dancing into a pole while attempting the challenge.

Egyptian authorities arrested a university student who performed the challenge while driving his car along a street in Cairo over the weekend, reported the Egypt Independent. The Interior ministry said the student risked exposing people to danger. "A video clip spread across social media showing a private car driver exiting his vehicle while it was moving in the street, leaving the steering wheel, closing the door and dancing beside it," they said.
Florida authorities have also warned drivers that those who attempt the challenge from a moving vehicle will be fined $1,000 and could face criminal charges, reported the Guardian.
Drake's song "In My Feelings" is from his latest album Scorpion. Within the song is the line "Kiki, do you love me?" which features in the viral dance.

Keke Wilson Claims the Rights to Her TikTok Dances

Keke Wilson ignited a social-media storm when she posted her "Savage" dance in 2020. The 15-second clip came to define the TikTok dance craze, boosting Megan Thee Stallion's rising rap career. While Wilson, who is 21, created the choreography on her own, several white influencers, including Charlie D'Amelio and Addison Rae, would recreate and become chiefly associated with the dance, thus reaping the rewards.
Despite all this, Wilson, who cheerled and danced competitively for more than 10 years, continues to entertain her 3.3 million followers with dances set to songs like "Freakum Dress" by Beyoncé and "Ragtime Interlude / I'm Really Hot" by Missy Elliott. This time, however, she's building a space that puts her — and other Black content creators — on top.
"I wasn't trying to go viral. It was literally just for fun."
"My life has changed. It did a whole 360, honestly," Wilson tells POPSUGAR about her "Savage" video, which now has over 66.5 million views. "I wasn't trying to go viral. It was literally just for fun. I'm a creator full time and I love it. I love to inspire. I love to help . . . I remember the best part was just waking up and seeing other creators doing my dance."
NEW DANCE ALERT! 🚨 if u use my dance tag me so i can see🤗 @theestallion #writethelyrics #PlayWithLife #foyou #fyp #foryoupage #newdance #savage♬ Savage - Megan Thee Stallion
On Copyrighting Her "Savage" Dance
In the two years since her dance went viral, Wilson has created hundreds of videos, been spotted at grocery stores, received an invitation to her own meet-and-greet at VidCon 2022, and gotten engaged. She's also secured a copyright on her "Savage" dance. "It's been amazing copyrighting my dance," she says. "I'm very thankful that I was able to copyright it, because now it's my own art, and no one can ever steal from me again." Wilson's victory represents a step forward for Black content creators, whose contributions to social media's biggest trends are often overlooked.
Wilson, who is one of TikTok's Black Trailblazers of 2022, says that her success has been overwhelming but life-changing: "I'm so honored to be in this community, to amplify our voices. I'm very thankful."
"I didn't want to limit myself to be a one-hit-wonder."
Wilson has yet to hear from Megan Thee Stallion's team about the unexpected wave of success brought on by her TikTok dance, but she hopes to someday dance with her and other artists, such as Nicki Minaj. "I also wanted to create more dances. I didn't want to limit myself to be a one-hit wonder," she adds. "I don't see myself going anywhere, unless they shut the app down, of course. I love what I do."
What's Next For Wilson
With millions of followers watching her every move on her main account (as well as her new fitness account, @queenk.fit), Wilson aspires to open her own dance studio, improving her dance techniques along the way: "I would love to start classes again and make my dancing even better."
In the meantime, Wilson has a wedding to plan for August. Describing her engagement to Tony Leech in Miami, Wilson says, "At the bottom of the sand, it said, 'Will you marry me?' And I was looking around at everybody, like, 'This isn't for me.' I look around and everybody is recording, and then I just bawled my eyes out. I was speechless. It was just the best moment ever, and I just know when we get married, it's going to be even better."
From trying on wedding dresses to creating dances that are transforming TikTok, Wilson is building a future for herself and her followers filled with hope and possibility.
Dangerous dances.Flash mob for Drake's song is getting more and more traumatic
And it's not about a broken heart
Rules of Life editors
The flash mob #KekeChallenge (other names are #KikiChallenge #InMyFeelingsChallenge) is very popular online. Its essence is to dance a dance to Drake's song In My Feelings. Under the lines "Keke, do you love me, are you riding?" from this track, flash mob participants dance an invisible steering wheel and show how their heart beats.
American comedian Shiggy was the first to dance to Drake's song, after which such stars as Will Smith and Ciara took up the dance. Later, many decided to complicate the flash mob by adding an unsafe element in the form of a moving car: in order to dance, you must first jump out of a moving car, and then climb back.
This is what a flash mob looks like when everything goes smoothly.

Gradually, unsuccessful attempts to dance next to a moving car began to be posted more and more often on social networks. Another hashtag #KekeChallengeFail has appeared, and Internet users who suffered during the flash mob are now cursing Drake and his song.

In addition to the possibility of getting hurt, a flash mob can also lead to a robbery.

Law enforcement agencies began to pay attention to the dangerous challenge. For example, the Spanish police posted on their Facebook page (the social network was recognized as extremist and banned on the territory of the Russian Federation) a selection of unsuccessful attempts to perform a dance, accompanied by the remark that such behavior on the road is unacceptable.
