Mermaids at Newport Aquarium start "flash mob", sing "baby shark"
NEWPORT, Ky. (WKRC) - If you have spent any time around kids within the last decade or so, then you probably have heard the much loved (and by now, infamous) and much sung song, "baby shark".
On Thursday afternoon, the mermaids of Newport Aquarium's Mermaid Cove led a "flash mob" in singing the catchy tune.
Here is what happened, according to the Newport Aquarium:
Mermaid Liora started singing the Baby Shark song with a couple of younger guests who were visiting, and everyone joined in, singing in unison.
She was joined by her mermaid sisters, Mermaid Maren, Mermaid Nova, and Mermaid Lelu.
The mermaids shared an important message at the end of the song:
“Skip the straw, doo doo doo, doo doo doo.
Bring a bag, doo doo doo, doo doo doo.
Save the sharks, doo doo doo, doo doo doo.
Save the sharks!”
The Newport Aquarium also reminds everyone that the mermaids are leaving for the season on Sunday, October 14th.
