Baby Shark Elf on the Shelf

We Should Have Seen This Baby Shark Elf on the Shelf (Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo) Coming

By now, every parent and nonparent alike is filled with immediate existential dread as soon as the first few notes of Pinkfong's "Baby Shark" begin to play (and for the former group, this dread comes approximately four million times a day). The song, which has had much viral success this year, has sparked other viral videos, dance routines, fitness workouts, pregnancy announcements, celebrity Instagram shoutouts, singing plush dolls, and now, the pièce de résistance: an Elf on the Shelf setup.

We should have seen this (doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, doo) coming.

Shared on the Elf on the Shelf Mom Instagram page, the setup features the whole lineup — Baby Shark, an elf as Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Grandma Shark, and of course, Grandpa Shark. It's simple, yet hilarious and genius, and we're obviously stealing it.

Thank you, Elf on the Shelf Mom.
