If you’ve seen anyone just standing there, frozen like an improv-comedy class, they’re probably doing the Mannequin Challenge.
Planking, the cinnamon challenge, ice bucket challenge, ghost pepper, milk, saltine – all these “challenges” have come about in the last few years, and now there’s a new one. Just like the improv classes when they tell you to “freeze,” you basically just stand there frozen for as long as possible in some sort of dramatic pose. But there’s (usually) a song playing in the background. Hip-hop group Rae Sremmurd has a new song (“Black Beatles”), and apparently that’s the key to this challenge.
The best way to further explain it is with a video, and there are already a ton of them online. Here are a few below.
You get the point.
