With 2016 finally ending, it was only fair for the biggest viral challenge of the year to go out with a bang.
Thomas Pesquet, a French astronaut with the European Space Agency, recently shared a gravity-defying video of himself and other five crewmembers performing the “Mannequin Challenge” aboard the International Space Station.
Due to zero-gravity, the astronauts had to cling to footholds and handholds to complete the challenge, but suffice to say they nailed it, big time.
“On Sunday we generally have a day off with the crew and we often have a bit of fun in microgravity,” Pesquet posted on Facebook. “We got the whole International Space Station crew together and took the #MannequinChallenge to new heights. The result is kind of sci-fi spooky don't you think?”
As for the missing "Black Beatles,” don’t worry, Twitter has got you covered:
As horrible as 2016 was, it did grace us with some rather impressive Mannequin Challenge videos.
Some were rather powerful:
Others were just adorable:
There were also some bad ones:
And some totally missed the point:
