That's it guys, the challenge is over, nobody is topping this one. Don't waste your time.
No exaggeration this is one of my favorite things I've seen on the internet in weeks. If you're unaware of the #MannequinChallenge is..basically you just pose frozen...like a mannequin (get it?) with the song "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane. It's that simple. I usually hate this type of rap but even I hate to admit the song is pretty catchy.
It's been going viral all week at offices, schools, lorckerrooms, pretty much anywhere but Paul McCartney by his piano is the best one yet. The fact that this got so big, so quickly that one of the two remaining members of the Beatles is actually doing it is very cool. Only would work with Paul too. If Ringo did this it'd probably get like maybe 3 retweets.
In the grand scheme of legacy in music Rae Sremmurd and Gucci Mane together aren't even a grain of sand on the beach of musical legends ( just made that up on the spot NBD) so that fact that Paul took the time to pay a little respect to that song and the challenge is just a really cool internet moment in my book. Idk how else to put it, this isn't exactly a highlight reel blog I just love this clip and had to share. Plus he executed it perfectly. Playing the verse in the song that has his name is a great little added detail also he is maybe the most convincing mannequin of all time. Probably because he's 74 years old, and all people that old are basically mannequins anyway.
P.S. I've had to google how to spell "mannequin" correctly this week more times than I'd like to admit.One of those words where I was so off spellcheck couldn't even try to point me in the right direction. Definitely belongs in the category of words like necessary or restaurant that aren't even that tough but I just never get right on the first try because I'm stupid and can't spell. Reaaaally hope I'm not alone on this one.
