You can tell from Petchdam “The Baby Shark” Petchyindee Academy’s walkouts that he’s a fun-loving guy, but you’re only getting a small part of the story from event night.
The former ONE Flyweight Muay Thai World Champion — who will return to action against Taiki “Silent Sniper” Naito at ONE: REVOLUTION on Friday, 24 September — is always on the hunt for laughs, and his followers on social media know all about his crazy antics.
Whether it’s pranks, dances, or the latest viral trends, here are five videos that show why Petchdam is the most hilarious Muay Thai star on the global stage.
#1 Pranking His World Champion Teammates
Being around Petchdam is a guarantee that you’re in for some fun times, but it also means you’ll be the butt of the joke at some point.
His teammate and ONE Featherweight Muay Thai World Champion Petchmorakot Petchyindee Academy found this out firsthand when he was ready to go home one night and thought he’d run into some moped problems.
#2 Punched Into The Groove
Have you ever been hit so hard that you time-traveled back a few decades?
This body shot sent “The Baby Shark” back into a 1980s Earth, Wind & Fire groove. He seemed right at home, and his moves show that he might have been born in the wrong era.

#3 Passing On His Knowledge
If there’s something Petchdam has mastered — apart from fighting, of course — it’s dancing to his theme song, “Baby Shark.”
Thai actor Joss Wayar seemed to be struggling with it, and the Petchyindee Academy man didn’t hesitate to jump in and show him the way.
#4 Life Is A Roller Coaster
While Petchdam is a fearless competitor inside the Circle, that doesn’t mean he isn’t scared of anything outside it.
The Bangkok resident couldn’t even look up when he went to an amusement park, and his teammate Savvas “The Baby Face Killer” Michael had to lend a helping hand.
#5 Just Friends
“The Baby Shark” knows all about those friend-zone feelings.
Getting put there is like a punch to the gut – tough but manageable. But staying there while your crush looks for someone similar is a much more intense barrage of emotions.
(Dis)honorable Mention: Don’t Try This At Home
Nobody is safe from Petchdam’s pranks, but we would highly suggest you don’t try this one at home. Or in the gym.
