There’s certainly nothing new about The Mannequin Challenge. I first became aware of the latest phenomenon during the US election when Hillary Clinton and her entourage filmed one on their plane.
Since then the world has gone mad with every man and his dog (quite literally in the case of this one featuring a very statuesque boxer dog) filming the Mannequin Challenge and setting it to the song Black Beatles by Rae Sremmurd – indeed it all seems reminiscent of The Harlem Shake a few years back, remember that.
However, I really like this one below from the Little Rock Trojans swim team in the US because it’s one of those that you watch and you really do think ‘How on earth did they do that?’
For Shiny Shiny today I’ve reviewed my Top 5 Mannequin Challenges so far. As this particular viral phenomenon fades, it makes me wonder what’s coming next.
The beauty of the world we live in now, is that broadcasters no longer dictate the next trend, it’s us the viewers! No doubt the next viral phenomenon is already being incubated somewhere, ready to be unleashed into the world.
