What Is Kiki Challenge All About?

In My Feelings Challenge aka the Kiki Challenge requires the person to dance along the still moving car. This involves a volunteer that opens the passenger door of the moving car while the other person films the crazy dance moves from the driving seat. This absurd trend began when a Canadian comedian Shiggy was seen dancing on the road on Canadian rapper – Drake’s latest song. Following this, the American footballer Odell Beckham swayed rhythmically outside the car and posted it on the Instagram. Thus, the Kiki Challenge was born.

The Safe Cars

Kiki is regarded as one heck of a perilous challenge so the person must ensure that his car must have quintessential attributes to deal with possible hazards.
