A man videotaped passengers on an international flight singing “Baby Shark” to calm a crying little child, and the video has gone viral.
On a FlyDubai flight from Dubai, United Arab Emirates, to Tirana, Albania, passengers had an unexpected reaction to a small kid whose father tried unsuccessfully to console him during the five-hour flight.
The event was documented on Instagram by Parikshit Balochi, a 33-year-old radio DJ based in Dubai, who wrote, “everyone on the plane passed the vibe check!!”
As the passengers clap and sing along to the catchy children’s song, the young boy looks around and relaxes. The entire plane must have known the song; earlier this year, “Baby Shark” became the first YouTube video to reach 10 billion views.
Apparently, the toddler was seated near Balochi and “was weeping incessantly.”
When those around him failed to divert him individually, a group of guys, including myself, began singing “Baby Shark,” and more people joined in,” he explained.
Balochi told Insider, “Crying babies are annoying on a flight.” He believes the film was well received because it reminds people that “some tolerance is required.”
After being shared on Instagram and TikTok, the video has received 8.3 million views and thousands of positive comments.
Katal, a resident of Auckland-Jammu, said, “I think we need more of these people in the world.”.
Wouldn’t it be great if we all worked together instead of against each other?” Sarah Beckwith made a point.
Tina Viik wrote, “Never underestimate kindness of strangers, love it.”
Parents seemed to be affected by the encouraging film in a special way.
The saying that it takes a village to raise a child is true, said sisanda_nkinqa.
Diyan0210 said, “This is really great to see.”. “Unless you are a parent, you will not know the difficulties parents face when flying with small children.”
“My two-year-old will be flying with American Airlines next week.” Duck pleaded, “Please be this enthusiastic for me.”
“I’ll be flying with my kid for the first time next month; let’s hope everyone is as nice as today,” Mel added.
Neither the boy nor the man and woman who accompanied him have been named, but other parents have expressed gratitude on social media.
“I thought to myself, ‘wow, this is a cool moment,’ so I grabbed my phone and began recording,” Balochi said.
