Kida Burns Introduces Dancing Wii Challenge On Instagram

There's a new challenge taking over social media and it's bringing out the dancer in everyone. So You Think You Can Dance: Next Generation winner Kida Burns (aka Kida the Great) has inspired a new trend thanks to an impromptu dance session in his kitchen. In a recent Instagram post, Kida and fellow dancer Jabari Timmons break it down to the tune of the Nintendo Wii song.


Though the tune seems like the last thing one would be able to groove to, Kida and Jabari totally slay. We have to give props for creativity because while gaming music doesn't always have the best beats for dancing, that melody always seems to get stuck in your head. With over 1 million views the video has gone viral, sparking the latest dance frenzy: #TheWiiChallenge.

Now other people are joining in with their own choreography. Check out some of our favorites below and get some inspiration to create your own version. You know you want to.
