Rae Sremmurd have taken over the internet and the charts thanks to the latest viral trend #MannequinChallenge using the hip hop duo’s catchy single “Black Beatles.”
It seems like just about everyone has posted their own #MannequinChallenge video, including Adele, Kevin Hart and an actual Beatle, i.e. Paul McCartney showing off his stillness skills.
During an interview this week on ESPN’s Sport’s Centre, the duo were put on the spot to choose their favourite celebrity #MannequinChallenge and went with the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders and Michelle Obama. Good picks.
So, how did their song get so popular? “It’s just a hot song that the whole world gravitated towards.” True. When asked what’s next for the duo and their viral hit, they said they plan on doing the #MannequinChallenge at the Super Bowl. Get that NFL money, gentleman.
The viral trend doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, with more videos being added to social media every day.

The Rock celebrated his announcement as People’s Sexiest Man of the Year with a #MannequinChallenge video that featured Toronto YouTuber Lilly Singh.
The cast of SNL decided to forgo their typical weekly promo and instead shoot a #MannequinChallenge video with the cast, crew and this week’s host Kristen Wiig.
Showing that the trend has no bounds, earlier this week, a smartphone was smuggled into an Alabama prison and used to record more than 40 inmates doing their own #MannequinChallenge. Even prison bars can’t stop the “Black Beatles.”
