The internet likes to be challenged in ways that aren't necessarily challenging. That isn't to say the Mannequin Challenge isn't a challenge — it's gotta be tough to organize a crew of people to stand still and do nothing for 30-45 seconds. This is like poor man's Bullet Time. You have to respect that. But the real challenge comes from being unique. Just standing still is boring. We're nearing the event horizon for the Mannequin Challenge, so you need celebrities. You need an interesting location.

You need Roy Nelson and Mike Tyson about to punch each other in King's MMA.

King's MMA leader and Chute Boxe overlord Rafael Cordeiro knows how to have fun, and he knows how to soccer kick the competition into submission. So hopefully, this is the end of the Mannequin Challenge. Once you have and in the middle of an important gym about to knock each other out, you don't need anymore faux steadicam's moving through people looking frozen. The shark has been jumped.
