Red-Hot ‘Mannequin Challenge’ Will Freeze You With Delight (Maybe)
Looks like teens have moved on from water bottle flipping.
The "mannequin challenge" is the latest fad that has everyone up in arms (that you shouldn't move). It's pretty simple, in theory: you freeze like a mannequin while the cameras roll, then post the clip -- with music, if you'd like -- for all to see. It sounds easy enough, but we're pretty sure that if you have to use the bathroom, it's probably the hardest thing this side of hearing a hose.
It's become pretty darned popular. Don't believe us? Just take a look at some of the videos, including this first clip that may have been the one to start all this madness (please note some of the NSFW language in some of the music that is played in the videos).
It's not just teens that have gotten into it either, though. A couple of teams have jumped into the fray, as well, including the Pittsburgh Steelers and Michigan football team.
What do you think? Is this just another annoying fad or is this a tough stunt to pull off that we should respect?
