BABY SHARK CHALLENGE: WASH YOUR HANDS, DOO DOO

Sorry parents, `Baby Shark ‘is back – for a good cause.

Pinkfong’s “Baby Shark” – this jingle earworm that every child seems to know – has been reworked to teach good hygiene to fight COVID-19.

The company launched the video “Wash Your Hands With Baby Shark” and launched a dance challenge to encourage families to download videos of their children washing their hands on the song.

“Wash your hands / doo doo doo doo doo doo / Wash your hands”, say the new lyrics. “Take soap / doo doo doo doo doo doo / Take soap.” Videos are tagged with .BabySharkHandWashChallenge.

Pinkfong uploaded its original version of “Baby Shark” with a colorful dance and comic video to YouTube in June 2016. It has now been viewed more than 4.6 billion times, making it one of five YouTube’s most watched videos of all time.
