Aladdin musical cast takes the Mannequin Challenge

Posted on

Ten thousand years will give you such a crick in the neck — but fortunately the cast of Disney’s Aladdin musical didn’t have to pause quite that long for their take on the viral sensation known as the Mannequin Challenge.

In a video posted to Twitter on Monday afternoon, the colorfully costumed performers of the Broadway show pose in absolute stillness and silence (alas, no Rae Sremmurd here) as the camera bobs and weaves like a magic carpet, before finally landing on the winking visage of James Monroe Iglehart’s Genie.

Check out video below, and compare how the Aladdin cast’s version stacks up to similar efforts by Adele, Hillary Clinton, Ava DuVernay, Paul McCartney, and more.
