Does anyone else feel like we haven’t had a good viral challenge in a while?? I know, you were probably sitting at home just waiting for a new one to pop up so you can participate. Well, the time is now.

Over the past week or so, the Mannequin Challenge has completely taken over the Internet. I saw no less than 20 videos on my Instagram feed this weekend, and I’m sure that’s only the beginning. Even Beyoncé got in on the craze! So you know it’s not going away anytime soon.

So what exactly is the Mannequin Challenge? It’s pretty self-explanatory. Basically, a group of people freeze in place and someone films them. If you chose to include music, Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” is what the kids are using. According to Mashable, this is the video that started it all. Thanks, guys!

Will you try the Mannequin Challenge? Let us know in the comments!
