Telangana Farmers Take Kiki Challenge to Another Level

Two farmers from Telangana have claimed the victory over the infamous viral internet challenge, the Kiki Challenge with their safe and eco-friendly no-car performance.

The newest trend on social media, which involves jumping out of a slow-moving car and dancing alongside, the Kiki challenge is also known as the In My Feelings challenge or “doing the Shiggy”, thanks to comedian Shiggy who posted a video dancing to the song.

Geela Anil Kumar, 24, and 28-year-old Pilli Thirupathi’s freestyle groove and swirl while knee deep in mud, ploughing the field with a pair bullocks isn’t something that you usually click on. But their simplicity, innocence and rustic charm clubbed with the peppy beats of rapper Drake’s hit song “In My Feeling” attracted the netizens in hordes. The video has been viewed millions of times and the count is swelling by the minute.

Comedian and TV show host Trevor Noah posted the video on Instagram and wrote “they just won the Keke challenge”.

The video was conceptualised and uploaded by filmmaker Sriram Srikanth on his YouTube channel “My Village Show”, which showcases “culture, development activities, festivals, fun things, awareness programmes, short films, political situations and everything” about his village Lambadipally in Karimnagar district of Telangana.

The challenge intrigued him when he saw a message from the police advising against dancing alongside a moving car. His curiosity took him to numerous Kiki videos which he found quite risky. He hadn’t heard of the artiste, but liked the song. So he decided to shoot a safe yet fun version.

He discussed the idea with the duo from the village and they loved it. Soon they were practising, but when they shot it, the best moments came from their impromptu moves. Mr Kumar, who aspires to be an actor, enjoyed the whole experience.

The internet loved their “awesome way of life”. An Instagram user said, “this is everything. How do we beat this?”
