It was only a year back when we were all raving about the ice bucket challenge. Multiple celebrities were seen taking part in the challenge and some even would pass the buck on to some other celebrity .However this year we have seen the Mannequin challenge coming forth and gaining popularity.
For those of you who are still unaware, the Mannequin challenge is when a group of people freezes like a mannequin and that is recorded in video form. While music plays in the background people stay frozen and later that video is uploaded with the hashtag #Mannequin challenge. One thing that stays common in most of these clips is that the music used is almost same in all i.e. Rae Sremmurd’s Black Beatles featuring Gucci Mane.
This craze started in the month of November 2016 and slowly many people got hitched onto the bandwagon. Until now thousands of people have recorded their own renditions of the same and posted on YouTube. While it was teenagers who recorded first such videos it was last month only that Gucci Mane recorded his own Mannequin challenge.Advertisement
