A woman fully committed to the ‘baby shark challenge’ and hilariously performed the routine dressed as a shark. 

Admit it, just reading ‘baby shark’ has got the tune going in your head, hasn’t it?

What was once simply a song enjoyed by young children and around fires at summer camps has now become a viral trend, as more and more people take on the ‘baby shark challenge’.

One woman, named Ashleigh Waller,  threw herself into the challenge and dressed up as a shark for her video.

Check it out here:

Like all of the best songs, the repetitive, catchy tune has dance moves to go along with the lyrics. I say catchy – it can get tiresome after a while.

But of course where there’s a dance, there’s often some viral videos to go with it, and so the challenge was born.

This particular performer donned armbands and blue face paint for her camera appearance, creating some sort of child swimming-slash-shark hybrid for the hilarious video.

Similar to a lot of Drake’s ‘Kiki challenge’ videos, the shark woman does her dance alongside a moving car – which I will always see as quite a dangerous act.

At least she has her armbands on for safety.

Ashleigh walks viewers through the story of the family of sharks, changing her facial expressions and arm movements to appropriately represent the characters of the baby, mummy, daddy, grandma and grandpa shark, before coming to a close with a face showing what can only be described as pure joy.

It’s simply a delight to watch. Dedication is key.

Appreciative comments have been pouring in for Ashleigh, who no doubt made a lot of the viewers of this video smile.

One person wrote:

Me and this chic could be friends….. loved it…  Love someone who can have a laugh good on ye chic….

Another added:

I love it! Clearly she’s having fun doing this, and that’s all that matters… I love it!

A third added:

I think this is hilarious well done Ashleigh Waller for making everyone laugh my gorgeous girl

Despite the enjoyable videos we get out of challenges like this, some people are wishing for the baby shark trend to die out as soon as possible.

Admittedly, I imagine having the tune running round and round in your head is something that would result in insanity.

One despairing tweeter wrote:

I’m not even a parent and all I can hear is “Baby Shark doo doo doo doo doo doo” in my head

Another added: 

Not to be dramatic but if i hear that baby shark song one more time, I’m going to rip my ears off

I’m sure the craze will fade soon enough… only to be replaced by something equally, if not more, annoying. Excellent.

Inbetweeners Star James Buckley Thinks Young People Would Be ‘Too Offended’ By Show Now

The times they are a-changin, and with them are people’s modern attitudes towards old things.

As many things come under scrutiny for what they did decades ago – some rightfully, some questionably – TV shows made years ago have also fallen victim to today’s standards being imposed on them.

Just as some millennials are offended by Friends nowadays, a pattern seems to be appearing with new viewers watching older TV shows.

Though The Inbetweeners is barely a decade old, one of its stars believes it wouldn’t get made today, as the audience’s reaction would be very different to when it first aired.

James Buckley, who played the foul-mouthed Jay on the show, told Digital Spy he thought that fear of causing offence nowadays is ‘killing comedy’.

He said:

I think that when The Inbetweeners was around, everyone understood the context – that they were kids. There used to be a sympathy, where you could almost forgive them, because you can’t really have a go at someone for being stupid – that’s not really their fault.

Nowadays, it feels very black and white with comedy. There’s no in-between, it’s just, ‘This person said this on television – isn’t that terrible?’ and it’s killing comedy, because you’re not allowed to joke about anything, it seems. There seems to be a joke police, nowadays.

The Inbetweeners ran for 18 episodes over three series, and spawned two highly successful films. It followed four hormonal teenage boys, played by Buckley, Simon Bird, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison, as they struggled with girls, school, parents and each other.

James added:

It seems to be cool at the moment to be offended by stuff, and that’s a shame. It seems to be in vogue at the moment, and I’m hoping it will pass, because I do think that possibly people would maybe be more offended by The Inbetweeners if it was to be made today. Which is really weird, because it’s only 10 years. It’s only four years since we finished.

Having said that, James enjoyed his time playing Jay, who became a firm fan favourite thanks to his outrageous, made-up stories, interesting use of language and general ridiculous behaviour.

He said:

I like playing characters like Jay. It’s a way I wouldn’t want to behave, but it’s sort of freeing in a way. There’s an abandonment where you can play an obnoxious little sh*t bag, and have people say, ‘We really like you because you did that’.

I guess the extreme would be if you were allowed to murder someone, and for there to be no consequences – like that movie, The Purge. Jay was my Purge for a while. Because anyone that does meet me will see that I’m a little, twitchy, nervous wreck shuffling his way through life, and too scared to talk to people. So it was nice to pretend to be that [other] person for a while.

While the many people who carry briefcases, or catch buses, might not be particularly fond of The Inbetweeners, the show was certainly successful in summing up many teenage frustrations.

Netflix’s New Horror Show Is So Scary It’s Making People Pass Out

Hill House AIt has been a long, long time since I was really, truly scared by a film or TV programme.

Hill House A
The Haunting of Hill HouseNetflix

Until last weekend, it had been a long, long time since I was really, truly scared by a film or TV show.

I’m talking so scared, you’re frightened to cross the landing to use the loo, so scared your blood runs cold days afterwards at the sound of a creaking floorboard.

I can honestly say The Haunting of Hill House has brought me back to a state of cinematic terror I can only recall from pre-teen sleepovers, when we would stay up watching horrors which we were years too young for.

The Haunting of Hill House has left my chest tightened with a fear I thought I’d long outgrown. It’s made me nervous to look across a darkened room when I’m alone. And yet I just cannot stop watching…

Loosely based on Shirley Jackson’s 1959 gothic novel, The Haunting of Hill House has proven how powerful a horror movie can be when spread across an intensely bingeable ten episode TV series.

With each successive episode, viewers are given a little more insight into the dysfunctional Craine family; whose respective futures were tarnished in various ways during their brief time living at the notorious Hill House.

As a drama it is excellent; with the sort of interesting characterisation, writerly dialogue and compelling storytelling which are so often under-utilised within the ‘scary’ genre.

Despite the stark detour from the original text, there are enough understated nods to Jackson’s novel to keep even the most pedantic literature student happy.

Moreover, as a horror, The Haunting of Hill House has raised the bar. Jump scares aside – and there are some genuinely sickening jump scares – every single scene prickles with a constant, heightened sense of dread.

Those who can’t get enough of gothic settings will love the ruined grandeur of Hill House, with its shadowy corridors and watchful neoclassical statues. What Stanley Kubrick once did with Stephen King’s Overlook Hotel, Mike Flanagan has achieved with Hill House.

There is also Shirley’s stifling funeral parlour home where plenty of the present-day family drama unfolds; complete with reminders of death and burial around every corner.

And of course there are the ghosts themselves, some of which are so unbearably frightening you could be forgiven for hitting fast forward. Eagle eyed viewers will have noticed ghouls lurking in the background of scenes, never quite making a full appearance.

It’s therefore no great surprise to me that viewers literally feel like passing out while watching The Haunting of Hill House.

One Twitter user shivered:

One of the most terrifying, nail biting, hide behind the couch, don’t even breathe, I’m going to pass out from fear things I have ever watched. In. My. Life.

Another screamed:

WHY DID I DECIDE TO WATCH THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE AND ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT I CAN’T SLEEP NOW I DON’T NORMALLY WATCH SCARY FLICKS WHY DID I DO THIS TO MYSELF.

Some have spoken about having to ‘take a break’ from the show, while others have confessed they have had difficulties sleeping. Glad to know I am not alone on that front…

Derren Brown Tries To Brainwash White Man Into Saving ‘Illegal Immigrant’s’ Life

For two decades Derren Brown has mystified mankind with his mastery of the magical arts but his next scheme may push even his stupendous talents to their limits. 

In his next Netflix special, Derren Bown: Sacrifice, the celebrated illusionist will use all of the psychological techniques at his disposal to convince a man to make the ultimate sacrifice.

You see Derren plans on creating a scenario where his subject, Phil, a man who believes that America has an ‘immigration problem’, will willingly sacrifice his own life for a stranger he wouldn’t identify with, specifically an illegal immigrant.

Check out the trailer here…

If I’m honest Phil doesn’t seem like the type of guy who’s willing to jump in front of a bullet for an illegal immigrant, especially when it involves fighting off a gang of angry bikers.

At one point during the video Phil declares: 

I’ve always kind of been more bias towards white people. But again, I’m not racist, it’s just how I was brought up.

Even Derren admits that he’s worried he might not be able to convince Phil to take the plunge, admitting ‘I don’t know when it comes down to it that he’ll step out in front of a gun and take a bullet’.

Let’s be honest though he definitely will, whatever ritual Derren went through to become the master of mortal minds has left him with some substantial psychic powers.

Over the years he’s convinced a woman she was dead, given a woman incredible musical talent and perhaps most impressively convinced someone to murder their friend.

Sacrifice is the first special filmed entirely for Netflix and not for Channel 4. Last week he spoke to Graham Norton about the swap and how different it was working for the streaming giant.

He said:

It feels… in some ways it’s different. After years of Channel 4, they knew how we made the shows, in terms of things like the duty of care to the person going through it, if it’s a big, dark stunt.

So we kind of had tracks that we slotted into to make sure all that was in place, but with Netflix, we’re having to explain to them as much about how we make the shows as with fitting in with what they require as well.

They’re brilliant and supportive, but they’re also just further away, they’re in America. So we’ve been entrusted a lot.

Derren Brown: Sacrifice launches exclusively on Netflix this Friday, October 19 2018
