Freeze! The Mannequin Challenge is the new viral craze

Freeze! The Mannequin Challenge is the new viral craze

A few years ago, the Ice Bucket Challenge took the internet by storm, inspiring millions of people to pour freezing water over their heads to raise money for ALS.

That's just a single example of the viral sensations that have made waves across the web. Remember the Harlem Shake? Or how about planking?

But there's a new sheriff in town when it comes to silly online trends. It's called the Mannequin Challenge. Maybe you've seen some of the videos spreading around where everyone seems to be frozen.

The fun thing about this challenge is that everyone takes their own spin on it - except for, of course, the freezing in place.

Everyone stands still and holds their breath while the cameras pass by them, and the effect is almost eerie. It's like capturing a moment in time for all of humanity.

What do you think of the Mannequin Challenge? Would you give it a try and create your own video? Let us know in the comments.
