Have you joined BLACKPINK’s #PinkVenomChallenge on YouTube Shorts?
BLINKS around the world can create a 15-second Short inspired by the group’s new ‘Pink Venom’ music video out now through September 15.

On Thursday, August 18, BLACKPINK and YouTube announced the #PinkVenomChallenge, happening only on YouTube Shorts. The challenge began just as BLACKPINK concluded their Countdown Live into the premiere of their brand new ‘Pink Venom’ music video.

BLACKPINK have invited BLINKs everywhere to come to YouTube Shorts for the #PinkVenomChallenge to share their best dance moves from the highly anticipated comeback. ‘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.

From the U.S. to South Korea to Brazil, fans from around the world have already been sharing their striking dance moves as part of the challenge, which encourages anyone moved by the beat of ‘Pink Venom’ to make a 15-second Shorts video right from the YouTube mobile app to share their own version.

BLACKPINK’s Jisoo, Jennie, Rosé, and Lisa have also all shared their own personal Shorts to help inspire fans to learn the signature moves and join in on the fun.
