The Cleveland Cavaliers won the 2016 NBA championships — and the Mannequin Challenge.

The team traveled to the White House on Thursday where President Barack Obama honored the players, and they even did the same by gifting POTUS with a jersey of his own. “If the sleeves get tight can I tear these off, can I rip them?” Obama said in his speech, referencing LeBron James’s hatred of sleeved uniforms. “I’ll show you exactly how to do it,” James said.

Also look to James and the rest of the Cavs on how to master the #MannequinChallenge. Dressed to the nines in slick suits, the team froze in place in a White House room decorated with a landscape painting and a President George Washington portrait. While the athletes skillfully stayed in place, Michelle Obama was the best part. In one of the outtakes, she posed for a selfie with James.

Wearing the same Narciso Rodriguez dress from her meeting with Melania Trump a few hours before, in another view she’s seen gawking at the size of the massive championship ring made by Kay Jewelers from 400 6.5 carat, diamonds, set in 10 karat white gold, and 14 karat yellow gold diamond.

The Internet fad has been hugely popular in the past few weeks, with sports teams, celebrities (notably Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna in the delivery room), and even Hillary Clinton and her team participating.
