NTSB Warns Agains Drake "In My Feelings" Challenge


The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) warns against the trend of jumping out of moving cars and dancing to Drake's "In My Feelings."

When the Instagram user theshiggyshow posted a video of himself dancing to the song in the street, that dance went viral, with Will Smith, Ciara and Sterling K. Brown getting in on the action. But then folks took the #InMyFeelingsChallenge to another level, jumping out of moving cars to do the dance, often taking a tumble. The NTSB responds with a statement: "Hopping out of a moving vehicle or jumping into lanes of traffic to show your dance moves is foolish and dangerous."
