Kiki Challenge: India police warn against unsafe dance trend

The Chandigarh Police has warned the youth from taking the Kiki dance challenge, highlighting the dangers of the hugely popular jig.

Since the dance inception in which people synchs to Drake lyrics, such stars as Will Smith, Ciara and her husband Russell Wilson, Kevin Hart and Odell Beckham Jr. along with non-celebrity fans have all taken the challenge, posting clips incorporating the song's official audio. Well, it's not just normal dancing; the challenge involves a person to jump out of a moving auto, dance to the opening lines of the popular jig, and then jump back into the moving vehicle.

Sure, the Kiki Challenge must sound hilarious to a lot of social media enthusiasts who like to try a hand to validate their online presence, but in actuality, it's nowhere close to being a fun thing to do.

The Delhi Police posted on Twitter the picture of a man dancing on the road alongside an ambulance with its doors open and wrote, "Dance on the floors, not on the roads! It is not just your followers watching your groove; the traffic police are taking note too".
