Fans can take part by creating and sharing their best dance moves from the “Pink Venom” music video, adding the hashtag #PinkVenomChallenge to the YouTube Shorts caption, and publishing live. The challenge will run through September 15 — which is also the eve of their BORN PINK album release — and when it concludes fans can expect “a special surprise” from the group. During this time, anyone around the world with access to Shorts can take part in the challenge.

“Pink Venom” earned 90.4M views in the first 24 hours, making it the #3 biggest 24-hour music video debut of all time—and the biggest ever for BLACKPINK. In less than a week, BLACKPINK’s “Pink Venom’ broke the record for the biggest weekly debut by a girl group in Spotify history and the biggest debut by a K-pop act in 2022. The music video is close to hitting 200 million views.

As of right now, it has amassed 198 million views and 11 million likes.

In June, BLACKPINK became the first musical artist on YouTube to reach 75 million subscribers, with over 76.7 million subscribers on their official artist channel. The group has amassed 7.2 billion views globally on YouTube over the past 12 months and was amongst the top 10 most-viewed artists in the world in 2021.

“We are pleased to have another meaningful partnership with YouTube. Hope we can have some special events with our fans through the #PinkVenomChallenge on Shorts, countdown livestream and our new music video ‘Pink Venom.'”

From the U.S. to South Korea to Brazil, fans from around the world have already been sharing their remarkable dance moves as part of the challenge, which encourages anyone moved by the beat of “Pink Venom” to make a 15-second short video and share their own version.
