The internet’s newest obsession

'Mannequin Challenge' takes social media by storm

(CNN) – Social media’s been rocked by a new trend that involves doing nothing whatsoever.

The ‘mannequin challenge’ requires groups of participants to strike a dramatic pose while hip-hop duo Rae Sremmurd’s new song “Black Beatles” blares in the background.

The first-known appearance of the ‘mannequin challenge’ surfaced on Twitter in late October. It’s believed to have been created by high school students in Jacksonville, Florida. It’s not just students, though – sports teams such as the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers have created their own variations.
