Seems like the Internet is all about random challenges these days. And this recent fad is no exception. A lot of videos, showing people seemingly frozen in time, have literally been appearing everywhere – on YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, or whatever video sharing platform you’re using. That’s the so-called Mannequin Challenge, for those of you who didn’t put two and two together. It’s basically what it sounds like: people do a “freeze frame” in the middle of an action and the camera guy/girl films their poses. Nothing too complicated, right? But the people have been going bonkers trying to outdo one another! While some videos may look a bit creepy (it is the Internet after all), some are pretty funny, and then there these nine masterpieces. Just sit back and enjoy!
Who? – you may be asking, if you’ve been living under a rock your whole life. Destiny’s Child were the sh#t back in the day! Looks like they’re trying to stay relevant today as well, as they grace us with their artistic superpowers. While celebrating Kelly Rowland son’s second birthday, the women decided to take part in this Mannequin Challenge everyone’s been talking about. Gotta hand it to the ladies – they’ve nailed it to a tee!
Do you have any idea how hard it would be to do this challenge during a live rock concert? Well, Garth and his band have some idea, I bet! Loot at all of them freeze up when the time comes… Fantastic show!
Okay, maybe this one is not the most original or creative mannequin you’re gonna see on this list, but for Pete’s sake, this is THE Paul McCartney! And it’s a double whammy since the default song people use for this challenge is “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd.
