About

Skibidi Challenge refers to a viral dance created by the satirical group Little Big. A parody of various social games and viral dances, such as the In My Feelings Challenge and the TZ Anthem Challenge, the dance resembles an overly complicated variation of other popular dances.

Origin

On October 5th, 2018, Russian comedy music act Little Big uploaded the music video for the song "Skibidi" to YouTube. In the description for the video, they wrote, "Join the #skibidichallenge – just film how you dance the skibidi-dance, put the #skibidichallenge hashtag and post it on your YouTube and Instagram." Within two weeks, the video received more than 25 million views.



Spread

Shortly after the video posted, people online began posting their own variations of the dance, recreating it and tagging it under the hashtag "#skibidichallenge." On October 6th, YouTuber Yamax posted a version, which received more than 1,700 views in less than two weeks (shown below, left). The following day, YouTuber Black lIst posted a version, receiving more than 14,000 views in less than two weeks.



On October 15th, Instagram user @dubkovapo posted a version. The post received more than 238,000 views and 48,000 likes in 24 hours.

Several media outlets covered the dance, including The Daily Dot, [1] The Sun[2] and more.
