What is the I Got A Ponytail Challenge?

However, there are other ponytail challenges on TikTok, such as people showing off their hairstyle to the camera. Another one gets users to ask their boyfriend or brother to tie them a ponytail to see if they even know what a ponytail is.

How did it start?

The challenge uses the song ‘Ponytail’ by Badanamu, which is from Badanamu Zoo, an interactive virtual world for children to learn. This unusual collaboration of song and challenge is not unheard of on TikTok.

The ponytail song is extremely catchy, which is why some TikTokers have chosen to dance around to it and just play with their hair instead.

Badanamu is a learning app with animated videos, stories, and cadets. They run different programmes for children, including talking, rhyming, and new sounds.

It features a friendly bear who is in charge of guiding the user’s learning.
