Why the Mannequin Challenge is So Entertaining
We round up the best videos, from the funniest to the cutest and even the weirdest
Just in case you’ve been too busy to check social media, here’s what sweeping the web these days: the mannequin challenge. What is it? As the name implies, it’s a short video that shows people doing something without moving a muscle—no blinking or breathing either!—for about a minute. Then somebody comes in to film the scene, showing close-up shots of motionless, mannequin-like people and when it’s done everybody cheers. Many say the trend started from high schoolers from Edward H. White High School in Jackson, Florida. But before you try your hand it, here are some of the best videos we’ve found on the Internet. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
