Doo doo doo doo doo doo!
Last week New York drag queen and activist Marti Gould Cummings made headlines when a video of her performing “Baby Shark” for a toddler at drag brunch went viral. Now Marti has put her floaties on and jumped back into shark-infested water with their own music video for the earworm children’s tune. Marti enlisted some local New York queens like Desmond is Amazing, Lemon, and Jan Sport, and filmed a video at the Seaglass Carousel in Battery Park in Lower Manhattan.
“The team behind Shade: Queens of NYC and I decided to make a music video for kids with the song and use the video as a way for the grown ups watching to find ways to help LGBTQ youth, so we put in links to the Ali Forney Center for Homeless LGBTQ Youth and the Hetrick Martin Institute, home of the Harvey Milk High School,” Marti told NewNowNext.
“The Seaglass Carousel was so gracious to donate their venue to film and I hope people love the video and take the time to share joy and love and help out these two incredible organizations fighting for our young people.”
The original “Baby Shark” music video from Pinkfong has now racked up more than 2.5 billion views, but we bet Marti’s could match it. Check out the exclusive premiere of the cute video below.
