Another day, another dance challenge taking over TikTok. But instead of revolving around a dance move or song, the latest trend making its way around the platform started as a meme. If you’re confused as to why people are preparing themselves to do a dance battle with kids from Brazil, we’ve got you covered.

A few weeks ago, a video of a group of kids in Brazil dancing to Tubarão Te Amo by DJ LK da Esocia, MC Ryan SP, and Tchakabum went viral. Soon, the video started to take on a life on its own as people began joking that they were challenging people to a dance battle. Other users began spreading the joke of the Brazilian dance battle before it eventually became a trend on TikTok that even reached the World Cup.

Tubarao means shark in Portuguese, and the song generally talks about being careful of a shark that might bite you. (Think of it as the Brazilian Baby Shark in a way.) The accompanying choreo to the catchy track isn’t the easiest to do, but it admittedly is fun watching it be done, especially as you get ready to face off against those kids in the thumping streets of Brazil. Even some of our favorite stars and TikTok creators have tried to do the trend. And let’s just say, they’re more than ready to win the battle.

ANDREA BRILLANTES

@blythe #fyp #dubai #desertsafari #desert ♬ Tubarão Te Amo – DJ LK da Escócia & Tchakabum & Mc Ryan SP

That shark and those street kids better watch out because Andrea Brillantes will never get caught flat-footed. She’s literally glowing while dancing.

BELLA POARCH

@bellapoarch

How do u guys do this?🤣 someone pls teach me🥲

♬ Tubarão Te Amo – DJ LK da Escócia & Tchakabum & Mc Ryan SP

Bella Poarch has done the trend twice, the first was with the dance itself, and the second was with the mirrored delay filter. We’ll be going with her second attempt. It didn’t matter if she looked confused, she looked too cute doing it.

ANDREA SO

POV: You’re watching Andrea So body the Brazil trend like a pro. The faerie didn’t have to go that hard.

ROCE ORDONEZ

pak ganon

Roce and Andrea in one video? Now that’s what you call maximizing your joint slay. We think their battle ended in a draw.

MIMIYUUUH (AND NADINE LUSTRE)

@mimiyuuuh Epal naman nito. Nagtitiktok yung tao [email protected] Lustre ♬ Tubarão Te Amo – DJ LK da Escócia & Tchakabum & Mc Ryan SP

When you’re serving as hard as Mimiyuuuh is, nothing is going to stop you from doing that dance, not even Nadine Lustre trying to get her clothes.

DALIA VARDE

@daliavardee

te amo amorzhino te amo neymar 🤣

♬ Tubarão Te Amo – DJ LK da Escócia & Tchakabum & Mc Ryan SP

Someone’s ready to battle those kids. And the fact that she has a crush on Neymar, Dalia’s just like us.

EYA BORJA

@eyavanana

low quality

♬ Tubarão Te Amo – DJ LK da Escócia & Tchakabum & Mc Ryan SP

Eya is giving low-key energy here but that’s more than ok with her understated yet sensual moves. Those hip movements though.

AWRA BRIGUELA, ARGIE ROQUERO, AND RAMBURAT

@awrabriguela bugshh! mga accla ang kukulet hahaha @Argie Roquero ᵗᵈ @Ramburat ♬ Tubarão Te Amo – DJ LK da Escócia & Tchakabum & Mc Ryan SP

There are three distinct energy levels that we get from this video. Awra is going off, Argie giving it 70%, but still slaying in matching pink, and Ramburat is channeling Wednesday Addams and doing their own thing.

RAIN MATIENZO

@rainmatienzo

the way dew was giving me the facials and that attitude 🤣 talo na ko simula pa lang HAHA

♬ original sound – Rain Matienzo

Who knew Salome had the moves? At least Rain knows what not to do the next time she does a dance battle.
