Posted on

Amy Schumer is the latest star to take on the Mannequin Challenge… but with a dose of comedy added, of course.

Countless celebrities, from single stars to full show casts, have been performing frozen task, including Simone Biles, the cast of Saturday Night Live, NBC’s Hairspray Live!, Dwayne Johnson, and Rob Kardashian and Blac Chyna.

Posting to Instagram Wednesday, the Trainwreck actress used a restaurant as her setting for attempting the social media trend. “Welcome to the Mannequin Challenge,” she said to introduce the video. The camera looms around the restaurant, revealing frozen diners holding glasses, giving high-fives, and taking shots.

Everything is on point until Schumer gets to the restaurant’s kitchen, where the staff seems to be completely ignoring her, moving around as if all is normal. “You guys, remember we said we were gonna do the Mannequin Challenge and everybody was gonna stop moving?” Schumer addressed the staff. After the gang keeps cleaning, totally unfazed, Schumer quickly flips the camera and defends them. “Mannequins don’t play by the rules.”
