We’ve been throwing ice-cold water on ourselves. We’ve been dancing like they do in Gangnam. We’ve even planked and dabbed. In a couple of weeks #MannequinChallenge took over the world, and we’ve collected the ones you can’t miss. Let’s watch the best ones, from Big Bird to the First Lady.
20. When Mannequins Get Married
A lot of people are trying their hands (and bodies) at the recent Internet craze but some succeed better than others. This family in Austin, TX, for example, took it to the next level by their incredible wedding-themed #MannequinChallenge video. They wired beer bottles on strings; they trained their eyelids to resist the urge to bat and they simply kicked ass with their video.
19. Red Carpet Freeze
That’s how you do a red carpet! All cast and publicists froze to make their own #MannequinChallenge video during the premiere of Edge of 17 in Los Angeles. That included Hailee Steinfeld, Haley Lu Richardson, Hayden Szeto, Blake Jenner, Kelly Fremon Craig and Kyra Sedgwick.
18. Hairspray Live!
Okay, now that we’ve forgotten Fox’s truly horrendous Rocky Horror Picture Show rendition, can we get a bit optimistic about the oncoming Hairspray Live? The TV special will air on December 7 with Maddie Baillio leading the cast. The team behind the newest version of John Waters’ classic decided to modernize things a little bit and shot a special promo in the style of #MannequinChallenge.
