It’s the Mannequin Challenge — a craze that’s sweeping across US high schools, with students standing stock still to create compelling videos of a moment frozen in time. Most of these videos are set to music. Rae Sremmurd seems to be a favorite.

This new viral challenge is only about a week old, but the complexity and execution of the videos already out there doesn’t fail to impress.

One such Twitter video, from student Deshaun Diggs, has already seen more than 67,000 retweets since it was posted late November 3.


And here, Rae Sremmurd themselves join the challenge during a show at Denver’s Ogden Theatre, freezing for a moment before playing their hit “Black Beatles.”
