Washing your hands is something we should all doo doo doo doo doo.
Back before we were afraid of what infectious germs might be crawling on our hands there was a dance craze that swept the nation. The “Baby Shark” phenomenon, which had dancers recreating different sharks with their hands, grew wildly popular in 2019, racking up over 5 billion views on YouTube and even reached number 32 on the Billboard Hot 100. While the catchy, little ear worm is definitely hard to un-hear, the latest coronavirus-related rendition is using it’s memorable lyrics to emphasize the importance of hand washing. That’s right, PinkFong has just released an appropriately-timed sequel entitled “Wash Your Hands.”
The song is meant to encourage children to wash their hands, which in the midst of this pandemic could not be more important. The updated lyrics are a perfect step by step guide for little fishies everywhere:
“Grab some soap, doo doo doo doo doo”
“Rub your hands, doo doo doo doo doo”
“Rinse your hands, doo doo doo doo doo.”
“Cover your sneeze, doo doo doo doo doo”
“Cough into your elbow, doo doo doo doo doo.”
While I am sure I will have this tune stuck in my head until quarantine is up, it is nice to see creative solutions for some troubling issues. Take a listen to the song below and WASH YOUR HANDS!
