Mileage Tyres, in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath has the Mannequin Challenge, the latest Internet phenomenon.
The Mannequin Challenge is a viral internet video trend where people remain frozen in action like mannequins while a video is recorded, usually with the song “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd playing in the background.
The hashtag #MannequinChallenge was used for popular social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram. It is believed that the phenomenon was started by students in Jacksonville, Florida on October 12, 2016 and became viral after being posted on famous meme accounts such as @Daquan.
The initial posting has inspired works by other groups, especially professional athletes and sports teams that have posted increasingly complex and elaborate videos.
