Funny viral videos have become a great pastime for all of those that have nothing to do when they are bored. One thing that is certain when it comes to viral videos is that people can always find some type of funny viral video of a cat or dog doing something hilarious. The same thing goes for funny viral videos that involve babies. These tend to be the bread and butter videos that often go on television shows like America’s Funniest Videos.
There are some videos, however, that go viral because these videos are duplicated by people that have embraced a trend.
This is exactly what has happened with the mannequin challenge types of video. These are videos where an array of people are standing still in different positions while a slow motion camera movement is made across a wave of people standing as stiff as a mannequin.
The thing that has made these videos so popular is the celebrities that have tapped into this type of video fun. It is obviously something that becomes even better when a larger crowd is present. This is why you often see these videos in big settings where there is a crowd for something like a family reunion or a birthday party. The mannequin challenge has also been duplicated in larger arenas for things like football games because it takes so much for a large crowd to stand still.
Ironically, everyone in the mannequin challenge does not have to be still at the same time. They only have to be in a place where they are motionless when the camera is on them. More people are getting into the mannequin challenge because it is fun and it brings forth a whole lot of excitement for those that may have just been bored. It is a viral video concept that has lasted longer than most people would have assumed. People assumed this would be a fad, but it’s still popular.
