The mannequin challenge, a viral internet trend slowly becoming a thing of the past, was brought back to life by the Korean Basket Ball League during an All-Star Game.
After a missed three-point attempt in the second quarter of the KBL’s All-Star Game, players from both teams froze mid-game in a mannequin challenge. It wasn’t only the players but the coaches too took part in the challenge that swept the internet. Moments later, the horn sounded again, and players resumed the action.
Soon after the performance, reactions started pouring in on Twitter:

Recently, the mannequin challenge hit a new level when it made it to the outer space. French astronaut Thomas Pesquet tweeted a video of him and took the challenge to “new heights.”
During election campaigning, Hillary Clinton tweeted a video of an entire plane cabin executing the mannequin challenge as well.
