Viral internet challenges have given us some of the most ridiculous and hilarious videos that have graced our screens over the past few years. These fads or memes, such as the planking challenge, the Harlem Shake and more recently the water bottle flip challenge, have not only provided us with a unique source of entertainment, but actually pushed our creativity in ways only the internet is capable of.
The newest sensation dominating social media right now is the #MannequinChallenge, and yes, it’s exactly what it sounds like. This challenge involves a group of people freezing in place (like mannequins) while the camera moves around and shows you everyone’s unique and impressive poses. Reportedly started by Twitter user @pvrity_ with a group of high school students from Jacksonville, Florida, this craze has hit viral status now that celebrities, sports teams, universities and even the Clinton campaign have got in on the action (or lack thereof).
