Hey, remember when the mannequin challenge was a thing? You know, that trend where everybody stood real still while Rae Sremmurd‘s “Black Beatles” played in the background?
We sure do. In late 2016, we all had fun doing it, and it seemed like the trend would last forever. As it turns out, this is the internet, so no trend lasts forever, and after early 2017, the trend had pretty much faded, leaving us with nothing but relics of what once was.
It goes without saying that the mannequin challenge became huge in K-Pop, especially since groups could use their own songs instead of Rae Sremmurd’s. At the end of 2016, it had completely taken over. There are plenty of videos out there, but these 6 are especially nostalgic.
1. GOT7 – “Hard Carry”
Watch out for Jay B and BamBam!
2. SEVENTEEN – “BOOMBOOM”
You’ll want to keep your eye on Mingyu for this one.
3. GFriend – “Rough”
The girls are just about as close as you can get to being real-life dolls, but if you keep your eyes peeled, you’re sure to notice some slip-ups.
4. AOA – “Excuse Me”
See if you can figure out how the cameraman made it up the stairs without tripping on anyone.
5. Block B – “Yesterday”
Kyung is who you’ll want to be on the lookout for in this video.
6. SEVENTEEN – “Show Me Your Love”
SEVENTEEN are making a double feature in this list, but for good reason. This video will really make you wonder how they got so many people to stand so still.
