What on Earth Is the Mannequin Challenge?


Scrolling through Instagram a few weeks back, I saw my favourite dancers from Dancing with the Stars frozen like mannequins as the camera panned over them. The song in the background of the video was Rae Sremmurd’s Black Beatles featuring Gucci Mane. I didn’t know the song previously, but after I heard it once, I noticed it again and again as I saw more #mannequinchallenge videos showing up on my social media feeds.

What the heck is the mannequin challenge anyway?
