The Mannequin Challenge.

I don't get it…

Seriously, what is happening? What is a mannequin challenge, and is it supposed to be fun? The answer of course has to come from someone who is under 22, so we went to our intern, Kristina!

The Mannequin Challenge is the ULTIMATE quiet game. Start by gathering a group of your friends and freeze while in the midst of simple tasks. Go the extra mile while playing the song Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane. Frozen actions could be anything from your typical workday to an extreme action packed set up. Check out this Star-Studded Mannequin Challenge at White House or this awesome one on by New York’s Finest.
