Watch: Cork City Fire Brigade take part in viral social media challenge
Cork City Fire Brigade took part in the viral #BlindingLightsChallenge.

The latest app to take over the internet, Tik Tok, has made for some entertaining content creation during lockdown.

The video sharing networking service which is used to create short dance, lip-sync and talent videos has grown in popularity since the outbreak of Covid-19 and now families, work colleagues and even neighbours are getting in on one challenge in particular.

The #BlindingLightsChallenge has been viewed over 105 million times worldwide on the popular app and thousands have been coming up with their own unique take on the challenge.

The challenge sees people dancing, while adhering to social distancing measures, to The Weeknd’s recent single Blinding Lights.

The latest to take on the challenge was the Cork City Fire Brigade crew.

The video uploaded to social media sees the crew receiving a call out and responding to the call of duty by taking part in the latest Tik Tok trend.

In a post on Twitter, Cork City Fire Brigade said: “Not one of our usual turnouts today but we decided to put a smile back on faces.

“Thanks for all the support from every1 for the frontline workers over the last few weeks. We will continue to stay in work while you #StayHome.” 

Meanwhile, the crew also showed their appreciation for fellow essential workers, healthcare workers, the sick, the grieving and everyone affected by the spread of Covid-19 by shining a light from its headquarters on Saturday evening.

Fire engines were brought out onto the yard and flashed their blue lights in a show of support and solidarity.
