What sort of Jedi mind trick is this?
Just when it seemed like the Mannequin Challenge was played out, along comes this great entry from Star Wars fans in Sydney.
If you’ve somehow missed out on this viral meme so far, the Mannequin Challenge requires people to stay frozen in place while a video is recorded, essentially recreating the slow-motion ‘bullet time’ effect from The Matrix in real life.
Mannequin Challenge videos have been swamping social media feeds since October, and some of them are pretty brilliant — including this one, which was filmed at Sydney’s George Street Event Cinemas this morning.
To celebrate tickets to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story going on sale, costumed Star Wars fans and Event Cinemas employees pulled off a new spin on the Mannequin Challenge, using brilliant props that made it look like their spilling popcorn and drinks were actually frozen in mid-air.
