There is a new craze in town Mums, and its turning people into dummies, it is The Mannequin Challenge! According to Wikipedia, the Mannequin challenge is a viral Internet video trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded, usually with the song “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background.
The hashtag #MannequinChallenge was used for popular social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. It is believed that the phenomenon was started by students from Edward H. White High School in Jacksonville, Florida on October 12, 2016.
The initial posting has inspired works by other groups, especially professional athletes and sports teams that have posted increasingly complex and elaborate videos. Not only athletes, celebrities such as from Beyonce to Secretary Hillary Clinton, even 4 year old pre-school pupils attempted it!
