Mannequin Challenge: Destiny's Child, Adele, Kevin Hart and more

Posted on


The Mannequin Challenge craze has swept the country in a matter of days. It all began with a group of high schoolers freezing in a pose as a camera pans through the set-up, usually set to “Black Beatles,” by Rae Sremmurd. The meme has gone viral and now celebrities are posting their own takes.

Some famous participants like Adele used other tracks like Johnny Cash’s “Man in Black.” Destiny’s Child reunited Beyoncé, Michelle Williams, and Kelly Rowland for their own edition and used Lauryn Hill’s “Every Ghetto, Every City.” Meanwhile Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton urged people to vote in hers, but kept the video completely silent until everyone got the all clear and then they (which included Jon Bon Jovi) all erupted into laughter.
