There is something weird about the internet. When we see something trending many of us have the need to imitate it, just to proof others we can do it better. For a reason, they fascinate us and entertain us. We have seen it all: planking, ice cube challenge, dabbing and so on. So many nonsense things have become online trends that even South Park had to make fun of it. Everyone has done it.
Here we see the lovely characters and team of the classic TV show doing what it’s trending now ,the mannequin challenge. Where you and your buddies froze as the camera films emulating room full of mannequins. And showing us that they can keep up with the quick, changing and trend directed world.
The Mannequin challenge has been done by EVERYONE even Sesame Street.
Sports teams, bands and even the Hilary Clinton election crew did it. So since every relevant group are doing this the guys of Sesame Street couldn’t be left behind.
We do not just admire the dedication of the whole crew to stand still as perfect statues.
But the details that increase the challenge of the performance. Like pouring some cereal, some falling eggs and dishes or the cookie monster catching a football.
At the end, everything is messed up by the characteristic duo of Ernie and Bert.
when Ernie tricks Bert to move and destroys everybody’s hard work. Reminding us the classical silly and lovely humour of the series.
