I’m a sucker for a challenge.
My niece Kaydence recently told me about the Mannequin Challenge, which has swept the internet in the past few months. You’ve probably seen one – a big group of people remain totally motionless while a video camera swoops around them.
Kaydence already did a mannequin challenge at her school – with 700 students – and her Girl Scout troop. So, naturally, she challenged me – can the centrexIT team make it happen, too?
Believe it or not, this video came together in one take. Since Kaydence is trying to sell enough Girl Scout cookies to go to summer camp, we figured we’d work them into every shot we could. I’m holding a few while playing Ping Pong with a pizza box. (Not terribly creative, my niece says). A few of us used them as swords. Literally no one knows how our friend isn’t falling out of his chair at the 1:50 mark.
If you like the video, pay it forward – go find a Girl Scout and buy a couple boxes of cookies. As for centrex, Kaydence says we definitely impressed her.
“I think everybody’s really good…especially since they’re adults.”
High praise from a 10-year-old.
