Estio Apprentices’ Mannequin Challenge

Planking was the online trend back in 2010, then it was the Ice Bucket Challenge in 2014 and now The Mannequin Challenge has been taking over the online world.

Here at Estio we like to keep up to date with Technology and all the latest trends taking the IT and digital world by storm.

So what is The Mannequin Challenge?

The Mannequin Challenge is a viral video craze featuring people imitating mannequins and freezing for the camera while music plays, in most cases Rae Sremmurd’s ‘Black Beatles’ plays in the background.

Many people are sharing their videos using the hashtag #MannequinChallenge. Teenagers in the United States began performing The Mannequin Challenge in high schools a last month and since then the whole world has got involved.

Our young inspired IT & Digital Marketing Apprentices were keen to keep the trend going and get involved.  The filming took place in the new Estio IT Apprenticeship Training Centre during the first week of Training in our new state of the art Apprentice Breakout room. Around 20 Apprentices took part in the challenge and even Social Media Trainer, Simon Rayson got involved.
