Time for a Pinking sing-along, doo doo doo doo

I know people who still, these half a dozen years later, can hum a version of the children’s song “Baby Shark.”

It’s nearly as catchy a tune as that “It’s a Small World” Disneyland song – though the term earworm might be more appropriate.

Doo doo doo doo doo doo.

“Baby Shark,” as many parents of young children likely know, was made popular by the South Korean entertainment company Pinkfong, which released the YouTube video (above) that at last count had garnered in excess of 12 billion views.

In 2019, the company released the animated movie “Pinkfong & Baby Shark’s Space Adventure.” Now comes a sequel, “Pinkfong Sing-Along Movie 2: Wonderstar Concert.”

So get ready: The movie is slated to play Sunday and Monday at two area Regal Cinemas theaters, NorthTown Mall and Coeur d’Alene’s Riverstone Stadium. Screenings on both days will be at 1 and 3 p.m.

Youngsters should love it. Parents? Jury’s out on that one.

Except for those I know who are still humming.

Doo doo doo doo doo doo.
