On a six-hour flight, passengers sing “Baby Shark” to comfort a crying boy.

Doing anything for the first time can be frightening for toddlers. A haircut can appear to be a nightmare. Taking a bath can be frightening if you are unfamiliar with plumbing.

An airplane ride is no exception. Sitting in an enclosed space can be disorienting. That’s a lot for a toddler to handle.

It’s uncertain whether the toddler of this viral video has been on an airplane before. Based on his crying, it’s likely not something he’s used to too often.

There’s a reason why airplanes often associate babies with crying. Babies and toddlers constantly get easily agitated on planes. And why wouldn’t they?

Sitting in a confined space with others for hours on end is stressful. That’s a recipe for a tantrum or a terrified cry.

How do you calm a toddler down on an airplane? So you’ll have to find a way to divert their attention. A toy or snack can sometimes be just what the doctor ordered.

The song Baby Shark helps to calm this particular toddler. The addictive childhood song has become a wee crowd favorite. It’s easy to see why it would be so soothing.

His parents sing for him, but it’s possible that won’t be enough. The entire plane quickly joins in on the song. With everyone singing along, the plane appears a lot less intimidating.

The passenger even joins in on the singing. Based on the happy song filling the interior, the child appears to calm down. Hopefully, their assistance made the trip less frightening and tear-free.

Baby Shark became popular in 2016 as a result of the South Korean entertainment company Pinkfong. It went on to become one of YouTube’s most-watched videos.

The song is still catchy to this day. Whether you’re a parent or not, the lyrics are unmistakable. The music’s viral nature has made it a staple of entertainment for young children.

Thank goodness the entire plane was aware of it. It’s a simple way to connect with and calm toddlers among them. It’s also a good song to sing.
