Watch these Irish dancers having a go at the mannequin challenge, the newest internet obsession sweeping across the nation.
The goal of the challenge, which has dominated social media the past month, is to remain frozen in action like a mannequin while a video is recorded — typically with music, usually Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles” song, playing in the background.

The internet trend, which is believed to have been started by a group of teenagers in Florida mid-October, has since gone viral, with people posting videos with increasingly complex and elaborate set ups. Celebrities, professional athletes, and even politicians have taken up the challenge in past weeks.
The Tamora School of Irish Dance in California and the Murphy Irish Arts Center in Ohio have posted their mannequin challenge videos online.
Watch their videos to see how they successfully mastered the challenge.
