Simply the best! Stars are having a ball participating in the internet’s “mannequin challenge” craze. From Blac Chyna to Hillary Clinton, Us Weekly rounded up the most impressive efforts from your favorite celebrities. Watch them all in the video above!
If you’re not familiar with the “mannequin challenge,” let Us explain. It’s when a group of individuals pose for a tableau so motionless it appears as though time is temporarily frozen.
Just before giving birth to her and Rob Kardashian’s daughter, Dream, on Thursday, November 10, Chyna, 28, shared a “mannequin challenge” video imitating labor from her ultraluxe hospital suite at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
In the clip, set to the sounds of Rae Sremmurd’s “Black Beatles,” Corey Gamble checks the Lashed Bar owner’s vitals as her mother, Tokyo Toni, and soon-to-be mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, each hold her hands. Chyna makes a grueling face mimicking the birthing process. Her future hubby, Kardashian, 29, is then seen kneeling down at the foot of the bed pretending to deliver their child.
“Dream Team 💕 #mannequinchallenge,” the former video vixen captioned the Instagram video.
The ladies of Destiny’s Child, Beyoncé, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams, also took a stab at the “mannequin challenge.” In their rendition — which Rowland, 35, shared via Instagram on November 7 — the “Bootylicious” singers stand in place for a still scene throwing balls and playing with toys in a children’s playroom.
Well, hello! Of course Adele couldn’t resist taking part in the online sensation. The British songstress, 28, and her bandmates gave the “mannequin challenge” their best shot while taking a break from tour rehearsals on November 7 to create their own freeze frame.
She and her fellow musicians all rocked cowboy hats and pretended to be causing a ruckus at a Western saloon.
Kevin Hart posted a fitness-inspired “mannequin challenge” video via YouTube on November 6. In his version, the actor-comedian, 37, and his buddies are seen breaking a sweat in the gym in Hawaii (where he is currently filming a Jumanji revival).
The guys do their best to stay still while lifting weights, doing pull-ups and an array of other exercises. Toward the end of the clip, the camera pans to Hart, who makes a hilariously miserable expression in what appears to be the middle of a squat session.
Prior to her defeat in this year’s presidential election, Democratic nominee Clinton, 70, employed the help of Jon Bon Jovi to make her “mannequin challenge” video extra special. In the clip, taken aboard her private plane on November 6, Clinton, the rock icon, 54, and her staff stand perfectly still for a whopping 54 seconds.

“Don’t stand still,” she captioned the Twitter video. “Vote today.”
Erykah Badu, who's hosting the 2016 BET Soul Train Awards (airing on Centric and BET Sunday, November 27, at 8 p.m. ET), teamed up for a supersize "mannequin challenge" with Tamar Braxton, Cedric Yarbrough, Darius McCrary, Luenell Campbell, Claire Sulmers and a slew of other notable names while walking the carpet at this year's ceremony.
Naturally, the tradition of completing the “mannequin challenge” to the tune of “Black Beatles” tempted the Beatles’ very own Paul McCartney to try it out. In his November 10 video, the “Can’t Buy Me Love” crooner, 74, keeps his finger pressed to a key on his piano as he looks up to the ceiling without making one move.
