Even if you aren't a parent, there's a very good chance that you're aware of the "Baby Shark" song. You know the one. With its haunting "doo doo doo doo doo" and impossible-to-forget melody, it's the sang that has haunted so many of our dreams. It's even worse if you don't have a child – why would this children's song be stuck in our heads?!
Because it's evil, that's why.
Okay, maybe it's not evil, but it is insanely catchy and it takes forever to get out of your head. You'll wake up singing it all week, and go to bed with the classic, "Baby shark doo doo doo doo doo" in your head. It takes over, people!
And now you have something to be thrilled abut – there's now a Valentine's Day version of "Baby Shark" and it's just as impossible to get out of your head.
It all started with the "Baby Shark" song.The youtube channel Pinkfong! Kids' Songs & Stories uploaded the catchy tune and soon it took the kiddie music world by storm.
No wonder kids are obsessed with the video – with its bright colors and repetitive lyrics, it's practically hypnotic.I mean, I'm a grown adult and I can't look away. (It's evil magic, I tell you).
"Baby Shark" is a phenomenon.It's viral brilliance. Kids are obsessed with it and it's consistently ruining parents' lives.
Despite being an internet song, it has sat nicely in the Top 40 of Billboard's Top 100.It also hit the UK's Top 40. It is literally taking the world by storm.
So why another "Baby Shark" song?Because the world can't get enough! Why not?!
The Valentine's Day "Baby Shark" version is just as addicting.Okay, but why is it actually so sweet? PINKFONG KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT THEY ARE DOING.
