The Mannequin Challenge

Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge or the Harlem Shake? Well there is a new video challenge taking over the internet, and it’s called the Mannequin Challenge.

The Mannequin Challenge is a cat herding experiment of getting your friends or coworkers to pose in a mannequin-like position while a videographer sweeps through the room filming people in both mundane and crazy poses.

The key to the Mannequin Challenge is for everyone to stay frozen in time and to film in one take – no cuts!

Some people are doing everyday tasks like sipping on coffee or checking email.


The best shots are when a “mannequin” is captured in what looks like a frozen movement, such as dropping a stack of boxes.


Of course, being Ripley’s, we have a HUGE warehouse to work with, and you will see crazy things like a Hamster vs. Squirrel Foosball game, a make out session with the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and of course, a shrunken head.
