14 Celebrity Mannequin Challenge Clips That Take the Trend to Another Level

Ellen DeGeneres and her show take on the mannequin challenge

It seems like society is constantly coming up with viral challenges that provoke participation. The ice bucket challenge. The condom challenge. The cinnamon challenge. That annoying but awesome water bottle flip challenge. One that's been gaining a ton of buzz is the mannequin challenge phenomenon, which is forcing us all to take pause -- including celebs who are keeping us entertained with their memorable videos.


Tons of stars -- like rapper Rae Sremmurd, whose song "Black Beatles" has often become the soundtrack -- have been taking to social media to show off their dummy skills.

Here's a look at a few of our faves that take the mannequin challenge to another level.

1. Blac Chyna & Rob Kardashian

Birth couldn't stop Blac Chyna from participating in the mannequin challenge, which deserves a major bow in and of itself. Chyna and her fiancé Rob Kardashian recreated the birth of their daughter Dream with loved ones in the most amazing way.

3. The Cleveland Cavaliers & Michelle Obama

You can't top a mannequin challenge at the White House -- like, at all. NBA star LeBron James and his teammates had the time of their lives filming this challenge alongside Michelle Obama

4. Sir Paul McCartney

The award for one of the best and most unexpected mannequin challenge entries has to go to Paul McCartney. And as you can see, this Beatles star is a fan.

5. Destiny's Child

Now, you KNOW a challenge is out of this world if one of the baddest R&B groups to ever do it come together for some fun. Kelly Rowland, Michelle Williams, and Queen Bey herself nailed it!

6. Britney Spears

If you were voted Best Resident Performer in Las Vegas, wouldn't you celebrate with a rhythmically still mannequin challenge? Britney and her peeps hit the stage with splits and spirit fingers to prove that when it comes to crazes, they're always on beat.

7. Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson

The Rock might be People's 2016 Sexiest Man Alive, but that's not stopping this hot papa from getting in on the action. Johnson's mannequin challenge was larger than life, incorporating not one, not two, but three different scenes.

8. Kevin Hart

Speaking of The Rock, Dwayne Johnson's Central Intelligence and Jumanji costar Kevin Hart crushed his workout and the mannequin challenge. If you can hold all that weight on your shoulders as the camera pans around the room, we bow down.

9. Guy Fieri & Guy's Grocery Games Crew

Even though you can't win an Emmy for making a viral video, Guy Fieri and his crew get MAJOR props (they actually used a lot of them) for this epic mannequin challenge. Yeah, it's a bit on the long side, but where else are you going to see a Freddy Krueger cameraman and someone cutting off your finger?

It's that detailed!

10. The Ellen DeGeneres Show

Leave it to Ellen DeGeneres to mic drop on the mannequin challenge. Her video with her crew is so amusing in a way that only Ellen herself could present. Plus, it's pretty cool that Warren Beatty makes a cameo.

11. Kristin Wiig & the Cast of Saturday Night Live

Well OF COURSE one of the funniest sketch comedy shows around is going to make a video -- how could we expect them not to do it? SNL alum Kristin Wiig is hosting the show on November 19 and to celebrate, the cast had some fun with the mannequin challenge craze, though Leslie Jones looks like she might be over it.

12. Stephen & Ayesha Curry

Celebrating wife Ayesha's culinary prowess at Mina's Test Kitchen (she was a guest chef), Stephen Curry, his friends, and the entire restaurant enjoyed participating in the mannequin challenge.

13. Sesame Street

Just when you think Sesame Street has nothing left to teach us, our favorite characters swoop in to school us on perfecting a viral video. Big Bird, Elmo, Oscar, Abby, and many others take us through our favorite place where we can come and play and everything is A-OK. Too bad Burt and Ernie didn't get the memo that the mannequin challenge means to not move or talk -- but that's all right.

14. Garth Brooks

Yas, Garth Brooks, yas! Garth's mannequin challenge with his entire band and crew was so intricate. Taking us from backstage to center stage with Brooks, this video is one in which you gotta give everyone credit for their dedication.

This happened last night! #MannequinChallenge HA! love, g

As silly as these viral challenges might seem, maybe this one will force us all to slow down and just have fun -- even if it's for the length of an Instagram video.
