Pinkfong, makers of the most popular (though not the only) Baby Shark video on YouTube, has announced that they have plans to bring a baby Shark series to Netflix, the world’s most popular streaming video service provider.
Every parent will recognize the now famous Baby Shark song as the unforgettable (no matter how hard we try) theme that haunts our nightmares.
It is also the catchy tune that their preschoolers sing repeatedly though out the day. Everyday. All day.
The song follows a family of sharks on a brief fishing adventure and contains a whole lot of “doo doo doo”s.
Since Pinkfong loaded the video onto YouTube in 2015, it has amassed over 2 Billion (with a “B”) views, making it one of the top 100 YouTube videos of all time.
According to Bloomberg, Pinkfong plans “to release short videos via Netflix Inc., a cartoon series and a musical in North America this year, one of the company’s founders said in an interview this week. The startup, which has recently signed various merchandising deals, may also develop games that work with Amazon.com Inc.’s Alexa and Alphabet Inc.’s Google Home voice assistants.”
No word yet on when the new Pinkfong/Netflix collaboration is set to begin airing, but my advice is to invest heavily in companies that produce alcoholic beverages and plush Baby Shark toys that fiscal quarter!
In the words of the great philosopher Bluto, I plan to “start drinking heavily” when it launches.
He was pre-med, if you recall.
