The Mannequin Challenge Is The Best Internet Meme You Never Knew You Needed

The web has birthed a brand new viral obsession.

The Mannequin Challenge involves groups of people freezing in place in dramatic poses while a camera man zooms in on all the clever little details, often to Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” booming in the background. It’s taken the internet by storm, and people all over the country are attempting their own versions.

The trend began with a few high schoolers in a classroom

Other students decided to up the stakes a bit

^This deserves an Oscar.

Football teams and pole dancing classes caught on

Beyoncé joined in, so you know it’s 🔥

Our office even did a #MannequinChallenge of our own….

I’m guessing the challenge won’t last too much longer since The Today Show will post their versions tomorrow morning and ruin it for everyone.
