Mannequin Challenge: Shay Mitchell, Paul McCartney + More Celebs Partake in Trend
The Internet, forever fickle in its trends, has officially moved on to its latest viral obsession — known as the Mannequin Challenge — and celebrities have already latched on to the craze.
Reportedly originated by Twitter user @pvrity___, the Mannequin Challenge sees groups of people frozen in place, as the track “Black Beatles” by rap duo Rae Sremmurd blares in the background (though there have been several variations in which song acts as each individual video's soundtrack).
The members of Destiny's Child -- Beyonce, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams -- even posted their own Mannequin Challenge today (November 7) via Rowland's Instagram, set to Lauryn Hill's "Every Ghetto, Every City."
Other celebrities like Diplo and Young Thug released their own Mannequin Challenge videos, while Rae Sremmurd re-enacted the trend at their November 3 concert -- complete with full audience participation. On November 10 First Lady Michelle Obama even participated, in an ESPN video also featuring LeBron James.
Check out some of the best Mannequin Challenge videos -- including @pvrity___'s original, and more from stars including Paul McCartney and Shay Mitchell -- below.
