The world has been overtaken by the latest social media craze, “The Mannequin Challenge,” with seemingly everyone jumping at the first opportunity to get in on the fun. NASCAR driver Denny Hamlin enlisted his crew to give the viral craze a shot.
“The Mannequin Challenge” is a video trend in which people stand still (like a mannequin) while camera pans around the scene giving off a frozen-in-time effect. The craze is believed to have started at a high school in Jacksonville, Florida in mid-October before exploding across the nation.
Taking a break from pit-stop practice at Joe Gibbs Racing shop in Huntersville, North Carolina, the crew channel their best statue as a camera pans from person to person before landing on Hamlin in the driver’s seat. The crew did their best to make their video as realistic as possible, the scene even complete with a lug nut soaring through the sky.
Love the viral trend or hate it, this one is definitely a must see. You can watch the video below and be sure to let us know what you think in the comments!
