The best mannequin challenge video? Give that title to the University of Pittsburgh’s football team, who decided to drop the mic via an in-flight mannequin challenge following the Panthers win over the #2 football team in the nation. Not just was that an amazing win, but this is by far the best mannequin challenge that we’ve ever seen, with the University of Pittsburgh’s football team showing their true creativity.
What is the mannequin challenge? Much like planking and odd renditions of peanut butter jelly time, the mannequin challenge is a new viral movement where a room full of people (or a plane full of people) freeze in position while someone walks through the room with a camera. The result is a video where it looks like everyone is frozen in time (or in the middle of a MARVEL superhero movie) and when it’s done correctly, it’s pretty awesome. The mannequin challenge especially taking off with the NFL and other sports teams, likely because they have the numbers, opportunity, physical body control, and audience to make these videos really special.
There will likely come a day when the mannequin challenge is not cool any more, but until that day arrives, consider the Dines Group and our staff fans of the viral video movement. Until then, enjoy the Panther’s Football Mannequin Challenge!
