Every once in a while, a new viral video challenge takes the world by storm. (Remember when no one could stop planking and Harlem shaking?) Well, brace yourselves, Internet, because your newest distraction has arrived: the #MannequinChallenge. If you haven’t seen it blowing up your social feeds yet, it’s only a matter of time.

To partake in the Mannequin Challenge, one must simply gather a group of people and freeze in place, a la plastic mannequins. The more people, the better, and extra points for crazy situations and poses. Many of the videos, which can be found in droves on Twitter, are set to the track “Black Beatles” by Rae Sremmurd (the group even recorded their own Mannequin Challenge).

And when we say it’s everywhere, we mean everywhere. See below for a semblance of some particularly great attempts.

Mannequin Challenge is taking high schools by storm (so you know it’s cool):

People are doing it at work

…at concerts…

…even at weddings.

Destiny’s Child reunited for the challenge. If Bey is on board, we’re all on board.

Football teams, both professional and college, are taking it to locker rooms and airplanes.

As are cheerleaders.

And this insane gymnastics team dared to freeze mid-air.

Even cats are doing it.

Though, let’s not forget who did it first:

Not everyone has it figured out, though. Nice try, Target:
