‘Baby Shark’ is the Most Watched YouTube Video of All Time

According to YouTube statistics reported by the BBC, the Pinkfong music video recording of Baby Shark is now the most watched YouTube video of all time. Doo doo doo doo doo doo!

Surpassing 7.044 billion views, it has overtaken the 2017 Luis Fonsi jam, “Despacito,” which was previously the most watched video with some 7.038 billion views.

A longtime kids’ summer camp song that’s sort of just been in the ether, “Baby Shark” went big when the Korean kids’ educational entertainment company Pinkfong put their catchy recorded version up on YouTube in 2016. 

It gained popularity in South Korea, and doing the arm chomping dance became a viral challenge across the globe in 2017. The Baby Shark craze has continued to spread in the ensuing years, and no one’s ears — especially parents of young kids who insist on watching it over and over and over and OVER again — have been the same since.
