Most of their videos on their personal, official youtube channel have passed the 100 million views mark, highlighting their fame within and beyond their native Russia. Their fames hit, "Skibidi", started an online dance trend where fans attempted to mimic their dance moves from the video. Little Big are also known to use their music as an outlet to express their take on current issues and parody stereotypes. Look no further than "Lollybomb", which portrays North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un and his love for nuclear warfare, according to Little Big.
