The Lamar Basketball Team Got Extra Creative With Its Mannequin Challenge

11.14.16 3 weeks ago

Are you sick of mannequin challenges? Hey, me too. No one is more sympathetic than me. Oh, you stood still for 45 seconds? Wow, that’s very … oh look, there’s someone moving in the video. AGAIN. Half of these things can’t even give you the bare minimum of lifeless humans for half a minute, so I understand where you’re coming from.

That said, these things aren’t going away any time soon. A water polo team just did one. And that cool dad who is always trying to relate to his kids and has a surprisingly high production budget did one too.

But Lamar makes some effort! There are jokes! One guy gets drilled with a basketball and doesn’t break character! That counts for something. They give you a protagonist that just wants the mannequin challenge to end AND he drills one of his motionless teammates with a ball. That’s fun.

By the end of this phenomenon, JJ Abrams will be making a full-length Star Wars movie featuring nothing but mannequins. And, in a twist, the only actor that moves throughout the movie is Hayden Christensen, who is at least 80 percent wooden in every movie he’s ever been in.
