The Delhi Police on Tuesday cautioned people against taking part in the internet sensation ‘Kiki’ dance challenge inspired by a popular song of Canadian rapper Drake.
To take part in the dance challenge, people jump out of a slow moving car and dance alongside it to Drake’s song ‘In my Feelings’.
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! #KikiChallenge is not worth the fun.#InMyFeelings Keep #Delhi roads safe for all.”

The Kiki challenge has taken the world by storm. The challenge, in no time, caught up with the young generation who are performing daring stunts to the song made famous by Drake.
On July 26, the Mumbai Police had also warned people against taking part in the challenge and risking one’s life and also the lives of others.
“Not just a risk for you but your act can put life of others at risk too. Desist from public nuisance or face the music ! #DanceYourWayToSafety #InMySafetyFeelingsChallenge,” the Mumbai Police said in its post on 26 July.
Concerned about the safety of the youth, the Uttar Pradesh Police too posted a video showing girls getting hurt as they try to get out of the car to carry out the act.
The video, posted by UP police, begins with a girl – whose face is not visible – taking the challenge at Gomti Nagar river front, a popular destination of young boys and girls in Lucknow. It ends with footages of other girls injuring themselves while trying to perform the stunt.
Captioning the video with the words “Not every challenge is worth taking”, the UP Police urged parents not to allow their children to participate in the dangerous challenge.
“Dear Parents, whether Kiki loves your child or not, we are sure you do! So please stand by your kids in all the challenges in life except #kikichallenge . #KiKiHardlyAChallenge #InMyFeelingsChallenge #UPPolice,” read the post on the official Twitter handle of the police department.
