The #MannequinChallenge is taking over all of our timelines — and it's impressive

If you've been on the internet over the past week, chances are you've probably seen the latest challenge taking over our timelines. Started in high schools across the country, a group of kids will pose like mannequins — often in positions that look like someone snapped a photo mid-action, such as dunking a basketball or taking a punch — and most of the time "Black Beatles" by Rae Sremmurd plays in the background.

The challenge appears to have started in late October, but it's still going strong.

The craze has truly taken over, with schools claiming their rendition is the best yet.

And the creative scenes participants are setting are seriously impressive.

In light of the Chicago Cubs winning the world series for the first time in our lifetimes, check out this baseball edition:

Seriously, how do they do it?

This takes some planning.

The #MannequinChallenge might be one of our favorite challenges yet.

College teams are even getting in on it.

But so far high school students are leading the charge.

And even Rae Sremmurd themselves gave the challenge a try.

They struck a post on stage before playing the signature track.

How did they do?
