The "Mannequin Challenge" has been taking over Instagram and Twitter ever since high schools started attempting it in late October. The idea is simple: Get a bunch of friends together and pose perfectly still while someone films you. The videos usually show people holding incredibly difficult positions (no flinching!) with Rae Sremmurd's song "Black Beatles" playing in the background.
It looks like the challenge is only just getting started, but these 15 videos take the cake so far:
1. Edward H. White High School
Students at the Jacksonville, Florida, high school score major points for originality. They reportedly started the trend.
2. A Wedding Party
We'd take this over "YMCA," "Single Ladies" and other cliche wedding songs any day.
2. Kevin Hart
The comedian is actually an impressive weight-lifter.
3. Colony High School
It's safe to say not much learning was accomplished that day.
4. Rae Sremmurd
The hip-hop duo behind the infamous track got the whole crowd do it at one of their concerts.
5. Dancing With the Stars
Tens all around, especially for Laurie Hernandez's handstand!
6. New York Giants
The Giants tried out a new post-game celebration.
7. Fox Sports
Sit tight until after the break.
8. Kentucky Wildcats
With thousands of people in attendance for a basketball game, this one might break the record.
9. Penn State Football
The Nittany Lions blew out Iowa this weekend, but the locker room was uncharacteristically quiet.
10. In-N-Out Burger
Resisting those fries is harder than it looks.
11. Trinity Valley Community College Cheerleading
If you're going to complain about the wind moving one girl's hair, get out.
12. BYU Gymnastics
Someone please get these girls some medals.
13. Dallas Cowboys
One poor dude gets stuck in the overhead compartment on the team's plane.
14. A Group of Ping Pong Players
Talk about defying gravity.
15. An Incredibly Well-Behaved CAT
And the end-all, be-all Mannequin Challenge features none other than a CAT staying perfectly still for the camera. This is some actual witchcraft, folks.
