This is not a drill folks! American DJ Jauz, whose real name is Sam Vogel, actually lived up to his promise – and then some – when he played his latest remix track at Coachella last weekend.
As many EDM (Electro Dance Music) fans might remember, Jauz proposed a challenge last year when he tweeted that he will make a remix of the viral Pink Fong song “Baby Shark” if he gets 20,000 retweets, according to Mashable.
Ok I’m sick of seeing everyone asking. And I really don’t wanna do it SO —
If this gets 20,000 retweets I’ll remix Baby Shark.
Good fucking luck LOL 😂

And to many people’s surprise, the 25-year-old DJ actually delivered on his promise and went even further by mashing the viral hit together with Darude’s “Sandstorm.”

In the clip, shared on Twitter by user @mmichelle_lopez, Jauz starts off the track with the ever-so-famous “Baby Shark” chorus. But as it approaches the build up, people in the audience were quite oblivious to what they were going to be hearing next. As soon as the breakdown hits, they were all caught by surprise by “Sandstorm’s” melody.
A day after the set, Jauz took to Twitter to jokingly apologize, “to all the parents who had their kids listen to my baby shark remix debut thru all my swearing.”
Good morning world
Yesterday was the absolute fucking best
Thank you everyone who came out and watched on the live stream 😭😭😭
Also apologies to all the parents who had their kids listen to my baby shark remix debut thru all my swearing 😂😂😂😂
