Social media’s been rocked by a new trend that involves doing nothing whatsoever.
Well, not quite. The #MannequinChallenge requires groups of participants to assume a dramatic pose (could be anything) while hip hop duo Rae Sremmurd’s new song “Black Beatles” blares in the background. The first known appearance of the #MannequinChallenge surfaced on Twitter in late October. It’s believed to have been created by high school students at the Edward H. White High School in Jacksonville, Florida.
Others have piled in with increasingly ambitious poses.
In a final attempt to woo voters, Hillary Clinton and her campaign team have taken part in a new viral trend called the Mannequin Challenge – where a group of people freeze mid-action while a videographer pans the eerily static scene.
