It seems like every time you log into social media there's a new viral challenge craze sweeping the internet. Over the past few years we've seen the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge followed by the Running Man Challenge, The Cinnamon Challenge and a personal staff favorite, the So Far Gone Challenge, plus countless more.

Now we can add the Mannequin Challenge to the roster and luckily, it's pretty entertaining. As the name implies, the newest viral craze features groups of individuals in all kinds of creative poses freezing in place as a camera pans across the scene. When it first began, the background song was always duo Rae Sremmurd's SremmLife 2 single "Black Beatles" blaring in the background.

Though the origins of the challenge are a little muddy, the first posted video seems to have originated from a group of high school students, who, according to various reports, are likely based in Florida. One school district in the Sunshine State has officially claimed responsibility for kicking off the craze, claiming that it is the brainchild of students at Ed White High School in Jacksonville.

The patient zero of viral videos was first uploaded October 26, 2016 and after a brief period of quietly picking up steam it's now become a full-blown obsession that is spreading faster than mono in a high school full of horny teens.

Celebrities are having fun with the challenge too. Everyone from Rae Sremmurd - who made their own video live with audience participation - to Young Thug, Beyonce, and presidential runner-up Hillary Clinton are getting in on the action.
