When it comes to social media, there seems to always be a new craze going viral – this one is no different! The Mannequin challenge has now taken the internet by storm- luckily, it’s a whole lot of fun and super entertaining. This new challenge features groups of people in creative poses, you guessed it – freezing in place as a camera pans across the entire scene. Picture freeze dance with a video camera but with everyday activity rather than dance. Initially, the background song these poses accompanied was always duo Rae Sremmurd’s SremmLife 2 single “Black Beatles”, but now people everywhere are adapting their own musical compilations to accompany their craft.
We do not know where this originated, or how it became a ‘thing’ but one thing is for certain – the entertainment factor is obvious – so entertaining in fact, even celebrities have jumped on board to do some of their own skits.
