The Mannequin Challenge has gone to the dogs, and the dogs are killing it!
The Mannequin Challenge is a video trend that’s taking over the Internet. In these videos, people freeze in the middle of some act, like talking on the phone or eating dinner, as if they were mannequins. Usually Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” serves as a musical backdrop.
Everyone and their mother is doing it. Actually everyone and their dog is doing it. And the dogs are really good at the Mannequin Challenge.
The original video is thought to have been created last month by a group of students from a school in Jacksonville, Florida.

The trend just keeps getting bigger with names like Adele, Britney Spears, Hillary Clinton and the Dallas Cowboys all joining in on the fun.

But no one does the Mannequin Challenge quite as well as dogs.

When you think about it, though, the fact that dogs are so good at the Mannequin Challenge isn’t very surprising. Dogs have always been pretty good at sitting still and staring off into space.
