First it was the Harlem Shake, then it was the Running Man (see video above). Now a new challenge fad has taken over the internet– the Mannequin Challenge. The objective is to pose with a large group of people and try to remain completely still, making everyone look like a mannequin.
The new trend has taken over, and teams have been doing it wherever they go—in the locker room, on the field or court and even on the team plane on the way back from a game.
Several teams are doing the challenge, and we are bringing 10 of the best to you.
