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.
