Katy Perry‘s performance at the 2017 BRIT Awards was trending on Twitter long after the show ended and not because of her singing, but because of another mishap the Internet has dubbed the “new left shark” – one of her dancers fell off the stage.


During her performance, Perry enlisted people dressed as houses to dance during “Chained to the Rhythm.” The show was politically charged, and Perry performed with Skip Marley. The house surrounded giant skeletons dressed in garb similar to outfits worn by Donald Trump and UK prime minister Theresa May.

However, one of the house fell right off the stage during the performance. The footage is making its way around the Internet like wildfire. The incident is reminiscent of Perry’s 2015 Super Bowl Halftime Show performance, in which one of her backup dancers, dressed as a shark, made Internet fame when he apparently forgot the choreography.

So-called Left Shark spawned memes, but also more permanent things like clothing designs and even tattoos.
