This Kiki Challenge from India resulted in three arrests

The Kiki Challenge continues unabated around the planet, showing that humanity will always love a good dance craze.

In today’s episode, we bring you Indian TV actor Shyam Sharma and his two friends Dhruv Shah and Nishant Shah, who run a YouTube channel called  Funcho Entertainment,

The plan was to show the world people from different Indian states doing the challenge, poking fun at stereotypes along the way.

As you watch the video, note the cop who tries to beat a kid who’s dancing in the middle of the road.

The Railway Protection Force, the police force that’s supposed to look after security on the country’s rail network, didn’t find this funny. They arrested Sharma and the two Shahs.

A Saudi Arabian-style overreaction? Maybe. But police across Indian aren’t keen on the whole Kiki Challenge thing. See?

So note to those travelling to India: Leave your challenge jones at home.
