Baby shark dethrones despacito as the most viewed video on YouTube in history



Baby Shark, the catchy children's rhyme recorded by South Korean company Pinkfong, has become the most-watched video ever on YouTube.

The song has now been played 7.04 billion times, overtaking the previous record holder Despacito, the Latin pop smash by singer Luis Fonsi.

Played back-to-back, Baby Shark has been streamed continuously for 30,187 years. Pinkfong has made about $5.2m from YouTube streams alone.

Conspiracy theories on its origin abound. It is thought to have originated in summer camps in the 1970s. Other theory says it was invented in 1975, as Steven Spielberg's Jaws became an box office smash around the world.

How many times have you played baby shark in your lifetime, ONTD?
