The Allen/Goguen Mannequin Challenge

Posted on

What is the Mannequin Challenge you say?

“The Mannequin Challenge is a viral Internet video trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a moving camera films them, usually with the song “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background.The hashtag #MannequinChallenge was used for popular social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. It is believed that the phenomenon was started by students in Jacksonville, Florida on October 12, 2016. The initial posting has inspired works by other groups, especially professional athletes and sports teams that have posted increasingly complex and  elaborate videos.” –Wikipedia

We recruited Mr. Brincklow and staff to help the Allen/Goguen class have a little fun with our very own class Mannequin Challenge. They did an awesome job!! Huge shout out to the LABBB APE staff for helping our class have a little fun!
