The #MannequinChallenge Is Taking Over Instagram

There’s a new trend hitting the viral internet and it’s called the #MannequinChallenge.

From what you may guess, considering the word Mannequin is in this challenge, people have to freeze and stand still to play.

Celebrities, athletes, and all kinds of regular folk are partaking in the challenge and posting their videos onto Instagram.

The Dallas Cowboys even uploaded their own video after beating the Cleveland Browns last night. On a flight back to Texas from Ohio, some of the team mates took part in it and added the video to Instagram with the comment, “That 7-1 feeling #mannequinchallenge”.

The New York Giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers also posted their own “mannequin challenge” videos.

According to Mashable, the original video that inspired this new internet sensation was of a group of high-schoolers who do a variety of poses in a classroom. The video was posted on October 26th.
