In My Feelings Challenge Has Been Banned in Dubai
What’s summer without one viral challenge spreading across everyone’s instagrams? The latest In My Feelings challenge featuring Drake’s new song is very quickly gaining popularity, unfortunately the UAE government has caught on and is charging a AED 2,000 fine for those who try it.

Essentially, the challenge involves jumping out of a slowly moving car and doing a dance to the chorus of the song while the car is still moving and continuously filming the person. The reasons for its ban are quite obvious, no one can really argue against the fact that jumping out of a moving car isn’t exactly the safest idea in the world.

The challenge all started when popular Instagram celebrity known as The Shiggy Show posted a video of him simply bopping to the new Drake song all the while unintentionally starting what would be the next viral craze. Catch the original video below.

This ban is no joke, according to several news outlets who have reported that three influencers have already been fined for participating in the challenge. The fine was grounded on the basis that it was dangerous and violated the traffic laws. Not only do you have to pay the fine, but there’s also the possibility of having your car taken away for 2 months.

Obviously the challenge is a lot of fun, but if you are wanting to try it, maybe do it without jumping out of a moving vehicle? The consequences don’t seem to be that worth it.
