We’ve dressed as killer clowns, caught Pokemon out in the wild, and recreated our childhood photos, but 2016 hasn’t finished with us yet.

The mannequin craze is currently sweeping internet. Starting off in American high schools, then trending with celebrities and now it has made it all the way to the White house. That’s when you know a craze has officially made it!

Put simply, the challenge is to say still mid-pose whilst a camera sweeps over a particular scene, creating a snapshot in time. Ideally the clip will be set to music and if we are getting pedantic it really should be Rae Sremmurd’s Black Beatles featuring Gucci Mane (although I have no idea why).

If you have time to kill #mannequinchallenge will keep you occupied with thousands of examples.

In case you have other things to do, we have put together just a few of our BeeLiked favourites.
