The Mannequin Challenge is the latest viral Internet video trend that is taking the world by storm. As the name indicates, it involves being frozen in action for about a minute while the video is being recorded, usually with a catchy tune playing in the background.

It is believed that #MannequinChallenge was started by students from Edward H. White School in Jacksonville, Florida on October 26. Since then, everyone from Hollywood celebrities like Kevin Hart, to tennis star Novak Djokovic to First Lady Michelle Obama, have joined in the fun. The challenge even reunited Destiny’s Child singers Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland, and Michelle Williams!

How long the craze lasts remains to be seen. Given that it requires very little talent, the fad may stick around longer than most. However, you never know, so be sure to complete your Mannequin Challenge before it’s too late!

              Lol! Reminds me of them old times when I was in third grade! We played that game all of the time! It was so fun, but really hard to keep still. I remember when I teacher would be gone, we would all goof around and start talking, but when the teacher is about to open the door, one of my class mates start yelling, "ANDY'S COMING!", and we would all fall to the floor😂 But that was years ago, and now I am in sixth grade going to seventh...😐
