STATUE! Did it take you back to those good ol’ days? Well, it instantly refreshed my childhood memories. But never in my wildest imagination did I envisage it to be such a huge global trend.
Well, I’m sure by now everyone is aware that I am talking about this new crazy addiction called the Mannequin Challenge. For all those unaware, it is a viral internet video trend where people recorded themselves frozen in action while a video with the song Black Beatles is playing in the background.
Prominent sports figures, artists, celebrities, politicians, such as Hillary & Bill Clinton, Britney Spears, Jon Bon Jovi, Michael Jordan, Ellen Degeneres and more across the globe have actively participated in this challenge.
As a matter of fact, it started with Hollywood celebrities posting videos of themselves taking up this challenge. Likewise, our Bollywood followed their footsteps and soon made it viral back home.
