“Hello” from the Wild West.
Adele is the latest to join the #MannequinChallenge meme that’s consumed social media the last week. In a new video posted to Adele’s Twitter, a whole group of people, including the 25 singer, wear cowboy garb and stand frozen in a saloon. Adele herself is briefly seen wearing a wide-brimmed hat, a coat, and a big grin.
Instead of the meme’s usual song — “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd — soundtracking the video, Adele and her team picked a similarly dark-shaded song: Johnny Cash’s “Man in Black.”
The #MannequinChallenge typically depicts a tableau of people frozen in place. They sometimes move at the end, if the song in the background dictates it.
