“Baby Shark”, the children’s rhyme recorded by South Korean company Pinkfong, has become the most-watched video ever on YouTube.

The song has now been played 7.04 billion times, overtaking the previous record holder “Despacito”, the Latin pop smash by singer Luis Fonsi.

Played back-to-back, that would mean Baby Shark has been streamed continuously for 30,187 years.

According to the BBC, Pinkfong stands to have made about $5.2m from YouTube streams alone.
