Teens: They’re annoying, but we turn to them for the newest cool trend, then mangle and repurpose it until someone works it into a boring ad campaign three months after everyone’s moved on. The latest entry in cool things by teens is the “mannequin challenge.”
The challenge requires a group of people to pose and stay completely still while a person with a camera walks around and weaves through the entire scene to show every piece of it. The more creative the frozen pose, the better. It requires the coordination of a flash mob, but is far less obnoxious.
I have taken an unhealthy liking this new, Internet-fueled craze known as the Mannequin Challenge. The premise of it is simple: a bunch of people strike a pose, stay incredibly still and pretend to be mannequins while someone films the stupidity of it all. I FUCKING LOVE IT. No sarcasm.
Everyone is getting involved in the action too. Hell, the Pittsburg Steelers even got James Harrison to participate. And we all know what crabby son of a bitch that guy can be. That video is below along with a few more.
